Were you still hoping to get your hands on one of Google's experimental Chrome OS laptops? Sad news: Google's VP of Product Management sent out a quick tweet saying the supply of Chrome OS CR-48 laptops has run out; but the public can expect partner devices to arrive by mid-year.

Albeit, a less useful black MacBook. But anyway! A hacker decided to toss Mac OS X onto the Google's Chrome OS laptop, the Cr-48, and mostly everything works. Well, except sleep, QE/CI and the trackpad is kinda wonky. Check it out.
If you're clued-up on math equations, lend your eye to Google's video down below, and see what it took for chancer Sylvain to win one of the CR-48 laptops. Flunked math? Nevermind, you should watch it anyway!
"Is that the Google notebook? Wow, I really like it!" That's what everybody's who's seen the Cr-48 Chrome prototype says. It's not because they love the software.
A: A man in a hazmat suit comes out nowhere and gives you another CR-48. Then he'll freeze that notebook in nitrogen and drive a spike through it. But don't fret: he'll have a third laptop waiting for you. [Google]
This is the first Chrome OS laptop. It's called the Cr-48, comes unbranded, and isn't for sale. That's because the Cr-48 is a test notebook that's part of the Google Chrome OS Pilot Program. Too bad, I'd buy one of these.
