Google Reveals the Cr-48, the First Ever Chrome OS Laptop!

Google has announced its first Chrome OS laptop called the Cr-48! This laptop is currently unbranded and will be distributed through its Chrome OS Pilot Program. This is sort of a public beta, but Googe is most likely interested in businesses which will provide feedback back to Google and comment on it’s quality. There doesnt seem to be a way to pay for one now though.

The current specs for this laptop are:

  • 12.1-inch screen.
  • Full size keyboard.
  • Oversized clickpad.
  • Qualcomm Gobi 3G chip for Verizon data in the US, your carrier of choice internationally.
  • 802.11n dual-band WiFi.
  • 8+ hours of active use.
  • 8+ days of standby.
  • Webcam.
  • Flash storage.

The Chrome OS is basically just web applications that were aimed for simplicity
and it doesn’t seem to have any function keys, but a full row of Apple-Keyboard style actions. The capslock key has been replaced with a search button. This laptop is assuming to be not that big of a deal yet because it hasn’t even been branded yet, but it will improve. Even though it is still in beta stages, is is currently being worked on. Although people might think this laptop isn’t that great, I say it’s pure awesomeness.
