Think I'll still wait for the 4gb version, can't stand the wait, so I bought a Acer 720 to hold me over... It is driving my 24" monitor well but crashing tabs too often for my taste...(I run about 12 open on average and they are heavy and lots of extensions)
 
My final Chromebox setup. ASUS with 8GB RAM, Apple Keyboard, Logitech t650 touchpad, Blue Snowball Mic, Logitech c615 camera, 3TB external drive. I am set and it works extraordinarily well.

Nice setup. Still kind of a overkill for ChromeOs

Just picked up the Acer C720 using an old XP machine as trade in at Best Buy,  Net price $135.16 with tax and trade-in. Pleasantly surprised at the snappiness.. Was concerned that it only has 2GB but does not seem to be an issue, way faster than my old Samsung GIO version...

Still holding out for a 4GB Asus Chromebox... :-)

YouCompleteMe - A code-completion engine for Vim http://valloric.github.io/YouCompleteMe/

YouCompleteMe is a fast, as-you-type, fuzzy-search code completion engine for Vim. It has several completion engines: an identifier-based engine that works with every programming language, a semantic, Clang-based engine that provides native semantic code completion for C/C++/Objective-C/Objective-C++ (from now on referred to as "the C-family languages"), a Jedi-based completion engine for Python, an OmniSharp-based completion engine for C# and an omnifunc-based completer that uses data from Vim's omnicomplete system to provide semantic completions for many other languages (Ruby, PHP etc.).

could be very helpful to me, I run too many machines...
 
You know I'm a big fan of the chrome APIs, so today I've written a modest Sync Clipboard Chrome App which acts as a clipboard that is synced across all my chrome desktop sessions.

When you press <Ctrl>+<Shift>+X in Chrome (or globally if you're on Dev channel), your current clipboard is automatically synced and pops up a notification in your other sessions you can click on to grab it.
One cool thing is that it works with text and also images.

If we take a magnifying glass, we can see that this Chrome App is just a simple combination of the APIs:
- commands¹ to handle keyboard shortcuts, 
- syncFileSystem² to back up your clipboard on Google Drive, 
- notifications³ to display large images notifications,
- fileSystem⁴ to save your clipboard images locally

And obviously, the source code⁵ is available for everyone. Have a look, you'll see how simple this to write a Chrome App.

Sync Clipboard is available now on the Chrome Web Store at

I knocked up a quick clipboard sharer a while back, and still find it very useful. Might be worth a look: https://github.com/sje397/Clint

about to release version 0.3 which requires *no special permissions* and has a little bit better performance.

Find Out Where Any Image is From
It's true, Chrome is a great browser... apparently it now has integrated reverse image search. Upload image... find internet tree.
