Wow, $199?  That's what it should have been priced at from the beginning, and glad to see it finally got there.  Chromebooks have a nice use case in a lot of places and this should help sell quite a few more of them.

I'm about to buy one of these and this would have been great except for: over 3.5 hours of battery life I'll gladly spend the extra $50 for 6+ hours that the samsung one offers
Hmm. Only 3 1/2 hours of battery life and Google doesn't specify what processor it has, nor amount of RAM. Then again, what do you expect in a laptop that costs just $199.
Ooh, good eye.  For our use (virus-proof laptops for the kids to use around the house) it's not a deal-breaker, but it's quite a shame...
+Mickey Mellen On the plus side, this is just the beginning. A year or so from now, I wouldn't be surprised to see the $249 Samsung Chromebook drop to $199.
I'm actually waiting for the holiday pricing. I have a feeling that $250 will hit around $200 in a month or so. But who knows
