I saw the Acer and Samsung Chromebooks at Best Buy two months ago. Really impressed. As you should be using the cloud, do these at least have a few USB ports? If so, you could alway add a nice 500G mini-USB drive for $60-80 for all the traditional storage needs. Could you then watch downloaded movies on it? Run iTunes or Netflix on it? Trying to get my wife into one as she is a real basic Internet user. Would love to hear from users? I'm quite happy with my old ASUS Eee netbook on 2G ram and 10" screen.
