Yay, only problem is... that thing that NZ doesn't have, good internet.

2mb/s down 100kb/s up with 12gb of data isn't really going to go that well with this.

really good if the internet is good, next chrome needs to re-design the internet. that's a bit rusty too

Note, the above was in relation google's OS

I'm sure Linux and even Windows will still support the old BIOS for a long time yet.

That's normal. Everything lasts 5 minutes with hardware. So what? Better not to be the guinea pig anyway, wait till it's mainstream and all the bugs ironed out.
