Thanks I ordered one. I was so mad. I ordered one a few days ago and they canceled it out of no where. I called and was so angry. They gave me $100 credit to use on my next order so I will call once shipped and have them apply it.

The way chrome is going, I would want a touchscreen and possibly a 2-in-1 form factor. Probably one of the best chromebooks, but as others have said, for this kind of money I'd rather have a windows machine.

For a lot of people including myself, we want a chromebook because it's not a windows machine. If the Chromebook does 99% of your daily computing activities, why would you choose a device that has malware/spyware/ransomware, shorter battery life, higher performance requirements and still a very slow update process?

I'm not claiming Chromebooks are malware/spyware/ransomware/virus-proof but the nature of the OS makes it far less susceptible to those attacks. And to those that give the tired argument that Google is spying on you: I'd much rather it be Google than some Russian hacker trying to hustle some bitcoin...

Very well stated... I was going to say that google bit, but you beat me to it. I actually like chromebooks myself, nothing against them at all... just at $550 you could essentially get 2 really good chromebooks that would give about the same performance, namely the Dell CB 13 and the Toshiba CB2. None the less, this does have some perks that you don't get on those 2 and I guess $550 is not too bad.

This HP is definitely at the top end of Chromebooks. It was designed with Google's help. The only thing that it is lacking from the Pixel is a touchscreen. The processor, USB type C definitely future proof it. It is probably going to be one of the first non touch devices to get Android apps.

I thought at least people choose Chromebook due to the cheaper price.
