Google pulls the curtain of its Cr-48 Chrome notebook

Posted on Wednesday, December 08 2010 @ 14:44:28 CET by

Google officially unveiled the Cr-48, the company's first Chrome OS laptop. The system is equipped with a 12.1" screen and features a full-size keyboard, oversized touchpad, integrated 3G from Verizon, 802.11n dual-band WiFi, a webcam, and flash storage. The search giant promises a battery life of over eight hours and a standby time of more than eight days. The Cr-48 will be distributed through Google's Pilot Program, in the first half of 2011 Chrome notebooks will be available for sale from Acer and Samsung. Other manufacturers will follow.
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.

The Cr-48 is available exclusively to participants in the Pilot program.
