What I miss:
- the TrackPoint pointing stick. I've been using Thinkpads since 1998, and I've been through like six of them. I'm used to a TrackPoint and prefer it over a touchpad.
- the screen size. I like a high-res screen, so I miss the 1440x900 resolution.
What I love:
- the battery life on this Chromebook is a revelation. I can go a whole day at work and the battery is still at ~50% when I get home. It's crazy. With my Thinkpad, I could eke out 2-2.5 hours before I was looking for power.
- the Chromebook is much lighter and faster to boot and resume.
I'll let you know how things turn out after 30 days.
More serious(ish) answer: If people are like me there is some residual Facebook (and Buzz) induced reservations about what personal data might be used for. I also think the early-adopter character is view it a bit like google does as a beta platform to see what it does rather than use it immediately as a tool. And some of it is going to be how people came onto the platform - mostly through friends who are tech savvy also inviting tech savvy friends. I agree with Jordan that the design might be something to do with it but then FB is also pretty regimented and professional to my eye (and anything has got to be better than MySpace and the design car crash that is). All of these might be factors or I might have it completely wrong - just a few thoughts, although a smiley always makes it a social post. :-)
