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.

Think of the Cr-48 as a reference design for future retail Chrome OS laptops. Here are the Cr-48's specs:

ā€¢ 12.1-inch screen
ā€¢ Full size keyboard
ā€¢ Oversized clickpad
ā€¢ 3G/Wi-Fi/Flash Storage
ā€¢ Webcam
ā€¢ 3.8 pounds
ā€¢ 8 hours of "active" use and 7 days of standby
ā€¢ Has a search button instead of a caps lock button

I love the unbranded look of the Cr-48 and can't help but think I'll be disappointed when the retail Chrome OS laptops (from Acer, Samsung) roll in around mid-2011. [Chrome OS Pilot Program]
