Ok, so I'm about to order the new smasung chromebook because it's beauty and sunshine and it's affordable.
The google chrome OS is, however, a clusterfuck to me because I use the net mostly to like download walking dead and game of thrones etc and then watch them on VLC, I don't know if I could do that in chrome OS.
But one of the google engineers made ubuntu run on it and samsung is saying they will open source some stuff...
are you all buying that? I would hate to buy a computer and then be locked into a operating system.
I'm thinking about it, esp. since it uses the Mali T604 GPU, which hopefully the Lima driver will support someday. Could end up being a great, fully-open platform. Does anyone know how the T604 would compare to a desktop graphics card? Would it be comparable to something like an ATI 4650 or closer to something like an NVidia 9400M?

Reason: Expanded graphics question
the acer has a better cpu but worse overall design plus you could only buy it with windows 7
The problem with buying that asus is that I can not buy computers in germany, for you see, the only difference between our keyboards and american keyboards are pretty much the cedille but the german ones you have a bunch of strange keys that are alien to me.
I know I could buy stickers and configure the layout etc...
Any chance that sweet asus will be on sale in america this coming month??? do they even bother selling computers without windows in america?
