Do you use Google Chrome? Then you might have noticed a neat little message when you opened a new tab:
Apparently, Google is looking for beta testers to pilot their new Chrome-OS-powered netbook, the Cr-48. It’s just like all those “Click here to try out the NEW iPHONE 5!” advertisements you see all over the internet, except its real. I hope.
At any rate, to apply, open Google Chrome and run a new tab. Or just click here. You’ll need to supply your name, address, phone number, and email address.
The laptop itself is really sexy, if I do say so myself. It looks like its rubberized (like most phones are now). Based on screenshots and articles, here are some specs:
- Solid State Drive
- 12″ LCD Screen
- Large trackpad
- 1 USB port
- SD Card reader
- 1/8″ headphone jack
- 8 hours of battery, 8 days of standby
- 10 second boot, instant wake
They left out “Spinning disks, caps-lock key, function keys, and lap burns,” according to the site.
