The Cr-48 is the test notebook Google 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.
The pilot program is available at: http://www.google.com/chromeos/pilot-program.html
The CR48 runs Google's Chrome Operating system. None of your files are stored on the PC, they're all stored in the cloud.
To keep it synced with the cloud, it includes a wifi connection, and a verizon 3G modem (which comes with 100MB/month for 2 years, for beta testers).
