    With a 1366x768 resolution, 11 inch screen, 'conventional' Celeron dual core processor, and 100 gig of cloud storage, this does look like the in thing to buy!!!

    Samsung had also recently launched a 'Chromebook" however that was at 249$.

    The best bits of the Acer Chromebook? HDMI out, VGA out, 3 USB 3.0 ports, Card reader, Wifi!

    All in 1.38 kgs! The 4 cell battery gives around 3.5 hours as claimed by the company!

    Though the Samsung Chromebook does offer a 16GB SSD and a lighter 1.1 kg package for 50$ more, but its the pricing that is so tempting on the Acer.It has a ARM processor that gives it 6.4 hours of life ( claimed ), and also has a 0.3 Megapixel web cam.

    Here are some pics of the Acer Chromebook -

    And some of the Samsung. However I don't like the provision of the USB ports at the rear of the netbook.

    What say guys? I am really keen on buying the Acer chromebook. However sadly available only in UK and US currently :(

    ChromeOS is great, but in my opinion until we get a solid wireless network in our country, it's not going to fair well.
