re: Samsung Chromebook: Hands-On Review
I would say that for the average user, Chromebooks are your perfect first computer. Once you get one, they will relegate your Windows computer to a niche device which you only use for occasional use of Photoshop or as a print server for legacy printers that don't support Google Cloud print. It is just that Chromebooks are so much easier and more convenient for doing 95% of what the average user does on a regular basis.

Agree, but what keeps me from buying the Nexus 7 is the 7 in the name. Too small of a screen. Google should make a Nexus 10.

Yes. I posted 2 links as references, but Information Week blocked them as spam. *sigh*

re: Samsung Chromebook: Hands-On Review
Well, I thought I read it in this article, but now I can't find it. However, it is specifically mentioned on the Amazon.com pre-order page [search for "Samsung Chromebook (3G, 11.6-Inch)"] and in the Verge article [http://www.theverge.com/2012/1...], so at this point I believe that it's true.

Is this true? I read it again and didn't see anything about free access.

re: Samsung Chromebook: Hands-On Review
I keep reading positive reveiw after positive review about this product. I think like the Nexus 7, this is another under marketed, underappreciated device. Google is too humble. I'd like to see a bigger advertising push for this Chromebook and the Nexus 7.

I will say this: I read technology news several times a day, so I am NOT a typical consumer in regards to this sort of thing. My wife, however, does no such thing and she actually mentioned this new Chromebook to me (as if she was letting me in on some big secret :) )

That is a good sign. If my wife has heard about this product then it is getting traction with the general public. I'm very tempted to get her one.

re: Samsung Chromebook: Hands-On Review
Really, it's the $330 3G version with 1 GB of data a month for 2 years that's the killer deal here. 2 years of free Internet access virtually anywhere in the USA - sweet! T'will be interesting to see if this generation will be able to gain any market traction against tablets and laptops.
