    Google CR-48 Chrome OS "Pilot" Netbook/Notebook in the house!

    Just got mine this morning

    Who else has one? Figured I'd post (from the netbook) and see if anyone wanted me to try anything out or had any questions I could try and answer. Looks pretty badass if you ask me for a cut-down no frills netbook. Perfect for what I will use it for.

    Edit adding bad pics, camera sucks:

    Took some, hook up the camera to the PC. Not sure if it'll work on here...

    suppose I"ll see what happens when I plug it in.

    So I guess Google is still sending them out?

    I guess there is still hope for getting one. I actually feel like I'd use one, if I got it. Seems like the perfect thing for me, since I'd be carrying it around to class to take notes and such.

    Yeah the look, size and finish are great. I love that it has NO branding or writing on it anywhere except the keyboard Need to get a cool 10" wide decal sticker of some sort for the top.

    Thats just it, you won't hear anything. You'll just walk outside to a box on your doorstep. I was surprised when I got one myself

    I seriously want one. It'd make that morning ride on the train oh so much better. Maybe there's still a chance for me too!
