I'm currently developing a collaborative music score editor available for Chromebooks and I'd be delighted to have your feedback about it!
Flat lets you write sheet music with your friends in realtime with a nice music notation editor.

Chromebooks, the speedy cloud-reliant laptop PCs designed by software icon Google, are dropping in price to below $200 per unit as the market expands and competition grows among hardware developers. Falling prices will energize Chromebook consumers, especially cost-conscious public schools, but challenge market leader Acer as it sticks to a higher-price, [...]

New Lenovo Chromebox already ready to pre-order, and it has one of the new Intel Broadwells in it!  Core i3 also available for 100 bucks more. These are the same processors that are in the new Acer Chromebook 15.
 
All new specs & details uncovered on new Lenovo Chromebox!

And that's not all.  Several retailers are already taking pre-orders.

In a Press Release from Lenovo last month we learned that the company would be releasing it's own line of Chromeboxes.  However, what was not released was what would be "under the hood" powering the device. After a little detective work, I now know. I believe two of the models will be powered by one of the new Intel 3205u Broadwell processors and two will run on an Intel Core i3 5005u processor. Both models will be offered with either 2 or 4 GB of RAM. All machines will come with 16GB of SSD storage which to the best of my knowledge will be upgradeable by the consumer if needed.  

In a previous post I mentioned that  the available ports on the device would include:  4 USB 3.0, 1 HDMI, microphone/headphone combo jack, integrated DisplayPort, Ethernet.  Prices for the Lenovo Chromebox will start at $199.  What I find most interesting is that the 4GB RAM variations only seem to be about $10 more than the 2GB RAM models. If so, that makes one decision very easy.

So who is going to be the one of the first to try one of these new models out?

I really like my Chromebook for web browsing, but I must confess I find the "store" to be a joke.  I mean are there really any "apps" that DO anything other than just direct you to a website?  I can't name one thing I can do on a Chromebook I cannot do better with an Android (phone) app, with the exception of web browsing.  Can anyone name ONE "app" that would really blow my socks off?

What blows your socks off generally? As an existence proof in answer to your question, see the Zed HTML editor, for example. There are apps that are not just browser windows, but yes the store is kind of bleak.

My Haier? arrived today. For what it's worth because I have no idea what any of  it means, the Octane is 6256 and the Sunspider is 646.   Complaints? I really don't have any.  As with Mr. Thomas, I'm not experiencing any lag, although if I tried hard, I suppose I could make a complaint about the keyboard, which feels cheap  - I hate that word - to touch maybe plasticky and the glossy surface.  Other than that, I'm enjoying my new  chromebook, too.

Nice price for all that power
 
Acer Core i3 Chromebook now at lowest price to date $279.99!

$100 off!  Acer C720 with an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of SSD storage. This model retails for $380.  This is the lowest price I have seen on the Core i3 Acer model since it was first introduced. This unit would be the most powerful Chromebook you can buy under $300. Be quick, if interested, prices on Amazon can change on a dime. This is a brand new Chromebook and not a refurbished model.

Cool. News to me but maybe old news to a lot for you
 
#Google allows you to search by image. A really fast way to do that in #Chrome is move your cursor over the image, hold down the S key, and press the right mouse button.

The date mentioned was July, but the review is from India so that may not be what the US sees.
