My friends know about the CR-48, otherwise known as the "Google Laptop." The question I get most often is "How did you get it?" My answer to that, is... I don't know, I don't know how Google evaluates who deserves such a cool and probably expensive (at least in my mind) piece of hardware. I applied and got a laptop. Right now, I noticed a curiosity toward the device among my friends, they ask, "...what is it? What is it like?" It's a piece of hardware dedicated to a browser.
It's a great appliance for doing the web stuff that I need to do. I even hooked up the CR-48 to the TV and it worked just fine. Flash may have been a bit choppy, but it was tolerable because the tv was so large.
It was decent enough. A curiosity of a thing. The allure of something free. I don't know if they are truly interested in the product, in the Chrome OS, or what it does. I think it's a curiosity to them because the concept of a browser as an operating system is just strange.
What do you think about the Google Notebook?
