    Did anyone hear of these? I am guessing that is what the testers were for.

    Google has a site about them, but comes back to say yours june 15th. They are being made by Acer and Samsung. Here is more info on the one from Samsung. -> http://www.google.com/chromebook/#chromebooks-samsung


    Specifications
    12.1" (1280x800) 300 nit Display
    3.26 lbs / 1.48 kg
    8.5 hours of continuous usage 1
    IntelĀ® AtomTM Dual-Core Processor
    Built in dual-band Wi-Fi and World-mode 3G (optional)
    HD Webcam
    2 USB 2.0 ports
    4-in-1 memory card slot
    Mini-VGA port
    Fullsize Chrome keyboard

    The samsung is coming to Best Buy and Amazon. The Acer will be at Amazon only. So I will be checking one out.

    I got an email offering me a shot early (June 1st) as I was an original tester. :)

    I got one also, and I wasn't an early tester :)

    They didn't list the price. So I am really wondering what they will cost.

    Just like with Android, Google only makes the OS [some software like Chrome/web apps]. :)
