Cr48 Google Notebook

Postby THCAndy » 22 Feb 2011, 12:56

With the release of the new Chrome OS, Google also made a Notebook specifically used for the OS.

The Cr-48 is the test notebook we designed for the Pilot program. It's the first of its kind.

It's ready when you are, booting in about 10 seconds and resuming from sleep instantly. There’s built-in Wi-Fi and 3G, so you can stay connected everywhere, and a webcam for video chat. The vibrant 12-inch LCD display, full-size keyboard and oversized touchpad let you enjoy the web comfortably. And at just 3.8 pounds with over eight hours of active usage and a week of standby time, it’s easy to take along for the ride.

What did we leave out? Spinning disks, caps-lock key, function keys, and lap burns

If you don't get the reference from "no spinning discs", they're saying that there is no hard drive. What this means is that all of the info that is normally stored on a hard drive, is now stored on a cloud. A cloud is pretty much a remote server that holds all of the files. Pretty much everyone uses a cloud without even knowing it.

You know the little bar at the bottom of your emails inbox that shows how much % is full?
That's just saying, your cloud only has the capacity of XX Mb, and you currently are storing XX Mb, on your cloud.

This only furthers my suspicion that you are secretly running realultimatepower.net.

Are laptops like this going to become standard for Chrome OS users?
