First and foremost, I have been trying to find a Chromebook to test for ages. Yes, I realize that if I really want to test out the new “Chrome OS” all I have to do is use Google Chrome. Well, I’m using that now. Check. But I wanted to see this “quick startup” in “8 seconds flat” with my own two eyes. And for the life of me I can’t find one to test. I’ve tried Best Buys all over, along with a lot of other big computer distributor companies, and nobody has a one. They can’t be web only, or are they?
I’d like your input on places to find one. I know Google recommends Tiger Direct, NewEgg, and some other company that escapes me.
If they really are online only, then that is a terrible marketing scheme. A lot of people (hence ME) like to try before you buy. I doubt Google plans on sending me one for a test run, but I’d be much appreciative if they did.
