The Acer Wi-Fi Chromebook shares the distinction of being the first commercial Chromebook with another model by Samsung. The Acer Wi-Fi Chromebook will sell for $349 while the Samsung model will sell for $429 (Wi-Fi) and $499 (Wi-Fi and 3G capable). I have been testing the CR-48 Chromebook for the last five months. During this time I have come to see the positives and the negatives of this device. The Acer Wi-Fi Chromebook will feature an updated Intel Atom processor which should function quite nicely.

I do think that most people will be happy with this device as long as they understand a couple of things:

1. This will not replace your Windows or Mac machine completely. If you use any programs like Photoshop, then you will still have the need for your PC or Mac.

2. You are probably better off buying the Wi-Fi version and using your smart phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot or buying a Wi-Fi Hotspot from a provider like Verizon or Sprint. That way you can use the web on multiple devices instead of just paying for 3G access on your Chromebook.

Here are some Pros and Cons to consider:

Pros

1. Lightweight
2. Extremely long battery life (I typically charge mine every other day)
3. Pretty fast. On the web I find that the Chromebook loads up really fast.
4. Angry Birds - Yeah, they have added an Angry Birds Chrome web app that lets you play Angry Birds.
5. Sandboxing - You can Google this, but just think of it as a added level of web security.
6. Saving on the Cloud - All your files, etc. are linked to the cloud so you are not having to back up your laptop regularly.
7. Regular updates. Google releases updates to Chrome OS about every 2-3 weeks keeping it stable and secure.
8. HDMI output.

I've been using one of the laptops that Google distributed last year in order to test Chrome OS. As the idea behind Chromebooks is new to some, I thought I'd focus on the operating system, though I've covered the hardware to a point.
I'll try to make this in-depth without it being too technical.

If you're looking for a quick idea of whether or not this is for you, jump to the bottom and read the summary.

The Concept

The premise on which Chrome OS is based is that almost everything you do when you use your computer happens in your browser, so Google have built a system that makes that experience as fast, as simple and as secure as they can. That simplicity also leads to an 8-hour battery life, which very few laptops can offer.
This simpler approach means that you don't have to deal with software updates(with one exception, see below) or worry about anti-virus software.
This also means all of your files and media is stored on other computers, on the internet. Some people aren't ready for that and if you're not, Chromebooks aren't for you.

Applications and Limitations

As you might imagine, just the web means no Windows, Mac or other typical software applications. Because of this, there's no CD or DVD drive in a Chromebook.
Though `just the web' may sound extremely-limiting, you can do a lot in your browser; multimedia editing(including video), as well as voice and video chat is all entirely possible on a Chromebook, as is the creation and editing of documents, spreadsheets and presentations. This software is available all over the web and there's a selection of useful tools to be found in the Chrome Web Store, with free and paid solutions.

Previous to this I was using a HP laptop as my sole computer. The hard drive finally failed on it. I read the reviews on this, everyone saying it was NO replacement for a primary computer. Theyre right. Its not. I thought I might be able to swing it. I couldnt. Of course, it depends on what you use your primary for. Some of the things I realized I wouldnt be able to do with this:

upload to google music
torrenting
anything other than simple saving to an external drive/sd/usb
any kind of major photo editing
easily taking photos outside of a social network profile picture upload
thats pretty much it

A few other drawbacks/cons:

-keyboard takes some getting used to. No caps lock, end, del, pg dwn, buttons. In the place where the capslock usually is, is a search button. Press it and a new tab pops up ready for you to search. Once youre used to it, I can see how that might be handy, esp on THIS unit and what youd primarily be doing with it. However, I still sometimes press it out of habit when typing, forgetting its not the caps lock. Which opens a new tab, and throws me all of for a second. Not that much of a biggie though. Also, the keyboard button sizing is a little bit different. so where my fingers are used to being able to press the shift key for example, is a little off, that took a bit to get used to as well, but it wasnt a huge problem.

-sometimes it gets a little buggy, and you have to log off, turn it off, and turn it back on. Only when youve had a lotta tabs open, been doing a lot, as you would kind of expect. HOWEVER, because this thing boots so freaking fast, you can do that in under a minute. literally. Its pretty freaking awesome.

-The track pad sometimes bugs out, it almost completely stops working.
