Chromebook vs Nexus 7 / Nexus 10

I'm thinking of getting either the new Chromebook or one of the Nexus tablets (7 or 10).

The purpose for the purchase is to be able to do internet surfing/emailing/possibly some Excel editing on the go i.e on trains and buses.

Does either the Chromebook or Nexus 7 have any major advantage/drawbacks relative to the other?

Also - am I correct in thinking that there is no 3G version of Google Nexus 10 at the moment? Is there anything similar on the horizon?

And the 3G version of the Nexus 7 is near impossible to get hold of at the moment (sold out on the Google play site) - does anyone know of somewhere that stocks it?

Thanks!

I have just got the WiFi nexus 7. Tethering with my £10 goodybag. Unbelievably easy to set up. Got 32gb storage. Cracking bit of kit. While I was in PC World today I did see a new tablet which is 3g and WiFi too made by Lenovo. May be worth having a look at it as it was only £149. Seemed like a decent bit of kit.

You're right that the nexus 10 doesn't come with 3G version.
