Samsung graciously invited us to check out their new S5 Chromebook last night and we have to say it was pretty impressive.  It may not be as thin as their S9 series (or MacBook Air) but at $429-$500, this is a solid laptop.  The trackpad is much improved over the Cr-48 and the screen is much brighter as well.  The shell is both significantly thinner and rounder.  Running heavy Flash was still a slight bit laggy but again, much improved.  The Google engineers promise improvements on a weekly basis.

I would have had the video up earlier but I had a red-eye after the event and Gogo wasn’t having the Youtube upload.
