Google has officially unveiled the Cr-48, the first Chrome OS laptop. But the only way to get one soon is to be a member of the upcoming pilot program.
Before everyone gets excited, know that this is defintiely a business-focused notebook. Application data will be saved to a cloud rather than the Cr-48. And as Google asserts that buyers "can spend less on hardware" with Chrome notebooks, expect a reasonable price tag but a no-frills machine.
Not everything has been revealed about this portable computer so far, but the following specs have been confirmed:
- 12.1-inch display
- 10-second boot time
- Flash storage
- 802.11n Wi-Fi
- Built-in 3G
- Integrated Google Apps
- Full size keyboard
- Oversized click pad
- Battery life: Up to eight hours of active use; up to eight days on standby
