Samsung and Acer will each be offering Chromebook laptops starting June 15. 

The Samsung Chromebook will cost $429 for the Wi-Fi only version and $499 for the 3G version. Acer's Wi-Fi only Chromebook will cost $349.

But what is a Google Chromebook?

Google says Chromebooks are not typical notebooks. With a Chromebook you won’t wait minutes for your computer to boot and browser to start. You’ll be reading your email in seconds. Thanks to automatic updates the software on your Chromebook will get faster over time. Your apps, games, photos, music, movies and documents will be accessible wherever you are and you won't need to worry about losing your computer or forgetting to back up files. Chromebooks will last a day of use on a single charge, so you don’t need to carry a power cord everywhere. And with optional 3G, just like your phone, you’ll have the web when you need it.

Google is always number one. It is on the acme position in every industry for which it is working. And now it is launching chromebook. I think it will rock the market.

Huge waste of money, I understand the concept, but a normal laptop that is more powerful can be had for cheaper (and with a hard drive too.) Google really dropped the ball on this one. They're already turning up for sale on craigslist.

I agree with that.

IMHO this is a classic attempt to "create a need and then fill it".

I watched the video the other day, and thought to myself... wow that's great.  Except for what happens when my internet goes out, which it did a month back due to some internal issue with Time Warner.

Then what?
