There are plenty of reviews of the new Cr-48 Chrome notebook running Chrome OS. I’m not going to duplicate that. I’ve found that some of the major tips on how things work are a bit scattered, so I thought it would be good to compile them into one place. This guide is designed to get you productive on the Cr-48 quickly.
After two weeks living in the cloud as part of the Google’s Pilot Program for its Chrome operating system and the Cr-48 laptop, I find the whole thing dull; that’s a good thing though.
Inside I saw the Cr-48 box I had seen in a YouTube unboxing video and you guessed it, a Google ChromeOS Cr-48. Oh the magic of Christmas, long gone since my childhood, had returned to my warm my heart once more.
No doubt a lot of you have read negative reviews on the Cr-48 running the Chrome beta. it’s odd that tech sites would write things like…
Brad Caris, one of the members of our Chrome OS Forums shared with us a ton of pictures showing his dissection of the CR-48 Chrome Notebook.

More and more users in our forums are beginning to receive their CR-48 Chrome Notebooks. It’s as if manna is falling from heaven! One user though (InlineSkate) wrote a short and sweet review of his personal experiences with his Chrome Notebook. He goes through all the major issues from the device’s build quality to a look into the usability of the current Chrome OS Beta.

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.
Just a day after Google announced the release of the Chrome OS Beta and the CR-48 Chrome Notebook, it seems like a lucky individual has already received the device this morning! There was a lot of disappointment when many Google fans found out that the CR-48 was only available for those in the USA. Even for those based in the USA it may not be that easy to get one of these babies; Google is only having 60,000 of these devices manufactured. If you are interested in getting one (and if you are in the USA) you may apply here.

With Chrome OS and the Web Store almost complete; I’ve received a number of emails from various web developers and companies eager to show off their Web Applications. A few days ago we took a look at Cloud Canvas (a cloud based image editing tool). Web Applications like these will become integral to the success of both Chrome OS and the Chrome browser.
It’s been a couple of months since I wrote about the progress of the Google Web Store. Back then I showcased a number of Web Apps which were still in their early stages of development. Ever since then, a lot has changed; Web Apps have ‘evolved’ and are now ready for the imminent release of the Google Web Store and the much anticipated Chrome OS.
