A 3G model... he, he, that will burn through your monthly data allowance in about 1 hour. Good luck with that!
The Chrome OS idea is good, but just way ahead of the times... It needs internet access so redundant, it's virtually free. Until then, not gonna happen.

I think the 3G streaming is more for business and people that rely on their chromebooks to access their email, calendar schedule and documents. Lightweight things compared to youtube videos.
I am a student and I would gladly pay for one of those and use the 3G whenever I need to do some work outside a wi-fi hotspot.

Not with the Atom crap please, minimum a AMD Fusion Ontario or maybe the new Fusion Z series, same power as Ontario with half the power consumption.

Dual core 1Ghz C-50 + HD6250 5.9w Fusion Z / Ontario 9w (same specs)

Why Fusion? It's a waste of GPU, consider that Chrome is more of a web browser than a full fledged OS. I doubt that Flash 10 requires such graphics horsepower.

[citation][nom]daship[/nom]Note to Acer, Netbooks are dead. People want the touchy feely tablets.Epic Fail!!![/citation]
Note to commenter, tablets are a fad. People want computers they can actually do stuff with, not oversized smartphones that can't make calls.
