Google CR-48 Chrome Notebook – Pictured
The first user submitted photo’s of the CR-48 Chrome Notebook are beginning to trickle in as a number of people have began to receive the device in the post. We have already shared with you the latest video unboxing of the device. It seems like Engadget was lucky enough to receive these first few pictures.
From what I see from the pictures (and the video here) it seems as if Google did a good job telling Inventec exactly what they wanted. The device seems very well designed, no glossy plastic and flimsy bits hanging off as we often see in many netbooks. I remember writing an article about how important build quality is a few months ago and it seems like Google has done well in this.
Even so, the device is reminiscent of the Macbook look. This may be a positive thing for some but one would have expected more innovative design, after-all this device is running what is arguably the most innovative operating system ever. Even so, we have to cut some slack for Google and their partner Inventec. The device is just for beta testing and it would be superfluous to go into all the negative aspects of it.
Check out the pictures below. What do you think?
