Default A Detailed Look at Google's Cr-48 Chrome OS Notebook

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.gottabemobile.com/2010/12/10/chrome-os-cr-48-review-part-1-out-of-box-experience/' target='_blank'>http://www.gottabemobile.com/2010/1...box-experience/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Last night FedEx dropped off Google's first Chrome OS notebook. The Cr-48 isn't going to be sold to consumers, but the story here is software, not hardware. Manufacturers like Acer will likely mix things up in 2011, but for now we have a pretty straight forward device in terms of hardware and software. This is the first part of a multi-part Cr-48 review series."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1292624793.usr1.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><ul><li><em><a href="http://www.gottabemobile.com/2010/12/10/chrome-os-cr-48-review-part-1-out-of-box-experience/">Chrome OS Cr-48 Review Part 1: Out of Box Experience</a></em></li><li><em></em><em><a href="http://www.gottabemobile.com/2010/12/10/chrome-os-cr–48-review-part-2-verizon-3g-setup/">Chrome OS Cr&ndash;48 Review Part 2: Verizon 3G Setup</a></em></li><li><a href="http://www.gottabemobile.com/2010/12/13/chrome-os-cr–48-review-part-3-ports-and-photo-gallery/"><em></em><em>Chrome OS Cr&ndash;48 Review Part 3: Ports and Photo Gallery</em></a></li><li><em><a href="http://www.gottabemobile.com/2010/12/15/chrome-os-cr-48-wont-bu/" target="_blank">Chrome OS Cr-48 Review Part 4: 10 Reasons People Won&rsquo;t Buy This Notebook</a></em></li></ul><p>My friend Xavier did a great job tackling every part of the Cr-48 - the hardware, the software, the overall experience, and some of the challenges that Google has to overcome with selling a product like this. We'll see if the hardware designs by Google's OEM partners are sexy enough to go up against the Windows netbooks on the market - but the biggest hurdle is the whole "cloud" aspect. I know we're moving in that direction, but is the market ready for a device like this? Would you buy one if it was netbook-priced?</p>
