It has been released and you can buy now but I can't review the unit I purchased?? A bunch of reviews from people who got the device free but wouldn't they want real reviews from those that paid?? Maybe this answer will be deleted but I will put a little review here. There is an Asus model coming out with similar specs but only full hd panel and no touch screen that is similar. Otherwise there is no competition. Acer basically released an almost identical unit from last year. Intel 11th gen i5 is a game changer in Chromebooks because of the much better integrated graphics. Now you can play Android games with no lag or obvious frame rate drops. If you liked last years unit then this one has all the same strengths and weaknesses but has more storage, is faster, slightly louder. I have been using many types of computers from Android tablets to Linux OS and windows to Mac/ios for about 20 years now and I am starting to like Chrome OS a lot more than in past. It can replace a Mac or Windows pc depending what you do with it. For my work flow this device is easier and faster to use in most cases than my Macbook pro M1. While I love MacOS as the most beautiful OS it actually lacks the touch feature that both Chrome OS and Windows has. So in some cases it is easier to use than a Mac. It is way easier to use and maintain than Windows and this device will be supported until 2029.
