I'm interested by the idea of it. I'm just not sure that it's usable enough to justify the cost. 
 
What! Thats a lot of dough for a laptop........
 
Love my Chromebox, but partly because it was cheap.

Kludgey printing setup means it could never replace my real computer. 
 
+Gerald Hines I'd never heard that reasoning before. Cloud print is working perfectly for me, but I can see it being a problem for some.
 
I've almost pulled the trigger on a Chromebook every time they come out with a new one. The price point on this one has kept me from even turning off the safety.
 
+Chris Holt my HP printer is not cloud print compatible so I have to connect it through my desktop which means both have to be on and logged in. Might as well use my desktop to print boarding passes for carriers that do not use Google Now.
 
I can't wait to hear what you guys think of it.

Looking forward to the review. 
 
I'm waiting to see which one of you guys at Android Central snags a set of Google Glass to review for us. .... :-)
 
After owning and using the Cr-48 and Samsung Series 5 550, my only complaint was the extent to which cheap hardware ruined ChromeOS...sadly, Google seems to have over-compensated.

It's a shame. Whereas I would have been willing to pay a good amount for a high end Chrome book, this pricing is just obscene. Apple obscene.

That said, I hope you enjoy your time with it!
 
I think that gap will probably be filled in sometime this year +Michael McNeeley 
I don't believe Google thinks they will sell a whole lot of these, but it gives the partners something to shoot for.
 
I think it's just a shoehorn to get a device out there that will work when they merge android and chromeos
