Google Cr-48 Chrome Laptop

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

I was browsing around and came upon an article about Google’s new Chrome Netbook. I have been looking around for an image to load up on my Acer Netbook, as it would probably run a little smoother than Windows XP, besides, all i ever used that Netbook for was playing music, watching videos, and facebook.

Anyways, back to business, I included a small insert for you to quickly read, then you can decide if you want to check out the whole article.

The Cr-48 may look like just any other laptop, but we can tell you right off the bat that it feels considerably better than most of those plastic netbooks sitting on store shelves right now. The entire body (that means the lid, edges, and the underside) is made of a soft, rubber-like matte black plastic — in fact, it feels a lot like the back of the Droid, though it feels a bit less rubbery. Overall, it looks a lot like the old black MacBook, including a magnetic latch with a split spot for getting your finger in and lifting the lid and a sunken screen hinge. We’re obviously pretty taken with the hardware design look and feel, but the laptop itself isn’t going to turn heads or win any beauty contests, and that was clearly intentional on Google’s part — remember this one isn’t for consumers, but more for those less stylish developers and early adopters.

As promised here is the article from Engadget.

Enjoy!
