9 December 2010 By Varun


Finally after a long long wait, Google has showcased the very first laptop running Chrome OS. This new 12.1-inch laptop from Google is named as Cr-48. Unfortunately, Cr-48 will not be available for final user until mid-2011.

Google has planned to distribute Cr-48 via Chrome OS Pilot Program which will have limited laptops. Retail buyers can head over to Acer and Samsung stores, once the laptop is released.

Key features of Cr-48:

  • 12.1-inch LCD screen.
  • 3.8 pounds.
  • 802.11n Wi-Fi and 3G support.
  • Webcam.
  • Flash storage.
  • Full-sized keyboard.
  • Over-sized touchpad.
  • stand-by time: 1 week, active usage: 8 hours.
  • USB port.

Caps lock key, flash drive, and function key are some of the features that are currently not present in Cr-48. But this laptop is just a prototype, so we can expect some changes after the completion of Chrome OS Pilot Program. If you are ready to test this prototype then register now.
