it’s over!!! Yeah!!!

Just in case you missed the part where it says:

Data for life: 200MB of free data every month for as long as you own and use your device on T-Mobile’s network

Pass!

No BOC at the end of the Woot-Off?

So I’m not a town crier when it comes to products that do not deliver on promises. Last time this product was offered I purchased an orange one with a lifetime of 200 megs a month through Tmobile. When I went to activate the sim card in the device on my account, I was informed that there would be no data included with the device and adding a device would normally cost $10 month but they would waive the $10 charge for the privilege of buying additional buckets of data when I needed. Am still in RMA limbo with support@woot.com.

2295 would be the 23rd century.

Thanks for that bit of info. It’s a deal killer. Hate being given the run around by any company. Even if the deal is pretty good just for the machine, doing the old bait and switch on you when you’ve made the purchase is not cool. I hope it works out for you.

CPU Benchmark

Sorry to hear this. That should be a pretty simple thing to rectify. I’m out. Now all I need is someone to volunteer to be class rep…

Was hoping this guy would come back around in the woot-off, but this is the next best thing. In for one in blue.

I got the turquoise 16gb model the last time this was offered. Very sleek machine and I get tons of compliments on it. I have installed a side by side linux as well as having set up a virtual machine on a 64gb sd card for all my windows needs.

Surprised to see how far Linux has come since its early elitist code days.

Would recommend for anyone who needs stellar battery life for any type of applications you may need.

Performs like an ultrabook at 1/5-1/10th the cost.

Personally I only use it indoors so I keep the brightness down low but my battery lasts about 9 hours with linux running and almost 11 hours with just browser usage.

Great purchase - no regrets.

Even when (or if) you get that data issue sorted out, you will soon discover how little 200 MB a month is. Streaming anything will chew through that quickly. And, once you’ve used your 200 MB quota, if you can’t afford the charge for more, you are stuck until the start of the next month.

I don’t know why they told you this, it’s incorrect.

Did you go to a store or call T-Mobile? I went to a store, showed them my Chrombook (from a few weeks ago), everyone loved it, and I requested a SIM card. She said I could have the 200MB free no problem or I could upgrade to 1GB and the $10/month would be waived until the end of the year.

So yes, she upsold me, but that’s fine as I am loving it and using it more than I thought. I am about half into my month and at 140MB. That’s with not asking my clients to join their Wifi when on site so I think you could get by on 200MB with basic usage.

Try a store (or different store) and ask again.

Sorry, a quick addendum. I checked my Free promo plan and you need a voice line.

Check out this “good” review over at cnet and a couple of solid reviews over at microcenter.com

Is the T-Mobile 4G network accessible from those other OS’s?

Here is a clear summary for those who (like me) are wondering what you can get done on these offline: http://www.zdnet.com/what-chromebooks-can-do-offline-7000027307/

To summarize, the answer is “basic email functions if you use gmail, virtually NO calendar functions, basic editing of Google Drive documents.”

Included in the OS itself is a basic media player (for audio [unclear whether only mp3], images, “videos” [unclear what formats]) and a file manager, according to the wikipedia article:

I got mine a few weeks ago. SIM card was in the box and fairly easy to set up. Love the quick boot-up. I’ll use mine for simple emails and documents while on the road.
