The Google laptop is here!

Finally, the long awaited Google computer is here. It is time to find out how Chrome does on a "custom-made" machine.

At the time of going to press, Google is distributing the laptop on its pilot program (You have to apply to be on the program apparently, but I have not investigated that yet). Coming with a fancy name "Cr-48",it will only be available to the public come mid 2011.

The specs of the new laptop are as follows

1. Webcam

2.Flash Storage

3.12.1- inch screen

4. Full sized keyboard

5.Oversized clickpad ( I love that)

6.Qualcomm Gobi 3G chip for Verizon data in the united States and other carriers are accommodated internationally.

7. 802.11n dual-ban Wifi

8. 8+ hours of active use-An interesting point for mobile computing.

9. 8+days of standby.

The laptop looks like it is down to do the work, though some changes to the key board might be a source of discomfort for those who do not like such changes.

Looking forward to how this will do technically and see if it will rattle the market in any way.
