There are people who say "why would you want a Chromebook when you can have a tablet?" I have a Tablet, a Kindle Fire. Each device has its own strength and weaknesses. I'd much rather read a book on a tablet than on a Chromebook. But I would rather use the internet on a Chromebook than on a tablet. You can put a keyboard on a tablet, but that seems like an awkward solution. The Chromebook is going to be the right choice for everyone, but I'm happy with it.
Browsing the net was good enough from my perspective but is it 4:3 rather than 16:9? I know there were keys to make what one was viewing larger and smaller which I liked alot. And a brightness key as well. I found the Acer display more pleasing to me but I didn't try to adjust the Samsung.
I was rather impressed with my first experience. With the wifi in BB, the Acer was pretty speedy considering everything using that hotspot in the store.
No stock anywhere with zipcodes I checked. No telling how many are out there for availability at this point versus what the demand is. Maybe they cannot make them fast enough but who knows.
