Google's Chromebook

Out of curiosity, has anyone had some hands on with one of these?
I am looking at possibly getting one for my wife (because, heck that is cheap for a laptop). However I don't want to sink an investment in if the unit is garbage.


I haven't personally, but guys around the office haven't been overly impressed with the limitations the Chromebook has. Do Best Buy, Futureshop, etc, not have them on display to at least play around with?
