I like your attitude too. I've started developing a Candidacy page [1]. I 
won't start fiddling hardware or funds until a consensus is reached as to the 
best option.

There's an interesting trend with these ProBooks. In November, when I got my 
chromebook, there was only one ProBook with AMD CPU available IIRC. Now there 
are a number of such models. That may indicate we can expect those to be on 
the market for a while, or I'm just remembering wrong and those have less than 
a year of shelf life remaining.

Anyone has any experience with the AMD ProBooks? Are they built to last, or 
are they crap?
