Leaked details on the Google Chrome OS-based netbook have hit the web, and a lot of tech writers like what they are seeing.

According to IBTimes, the unnamed 10.1-inch netbook, expected to be on shelves by the next holiday season, will feature a NVIDIA Tegra chip and an ARM CPU. Along with the HD-ready, 1,280 x 720 resolution touchscreen display, the netbook should include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, a built-in webcam, a multi-card reader as well as 64GB SSD and 2 GB RAM.

Then there's all the usual Google apps, such as Gmail, Maps, Docs, etc. Google Wave might be included too, but no confirmation on this.

Both IBTimes and Netbook News are predicting a price tag under $300, which I couldn't like more! They also predict that it could get tied to a specific service provider with a 3G plan, which I don't entirely like, but is most likely nonetheless.

Anyone excited?
