    I think it’s also worth noting that only the Arctic White 3G Samsung Series 5 is shipping right now.

    The Silver Samsung’s seem to be backordered as well. The Wifi only version.

  4. Where is my Chromebook? I ordered Samsung-Chromebook / Intel® Atom™ Processor / 12.1″ Display / 2GB Memory-Titan Silver- they say this one is backordered too!

    No info on when it might be shipped.

  5. Did your order your Chromebook from Best Buy or Amazon?
    Amazon orders appear to be shipping on time. I’m not hearing much feedback from Best Buy customers, other than the items are backordered.
