Chrome Notebook: Initial Boot and Reaction

Eight seconds. That's how long this little beauty takes to power up (to fully functional computer). A little over a second to resume from standby.

My initial reaction is that the Chrome notebook does not disappoint.

Now that we've taken our friend out of the box, let's take a closer look! This is all about the physical layout.

Chrome Notebook: Included Literature

Some of the included literature with the Chrome notebook is very fun to read, and not just for hardcore geeks.

Chrome Notebook: The Unboxing

I've been getting various packages (Christmas gifts, 'tis the season) delivered the last few days, from eBay and Amazon and such, so I wasn't surprised to see an unfamiliar name and address on the return label of this box. I opened it and then paused, thinking that perhaps my wife had bought me something special and I was seeing it prematurely. But no, she had no idea where it had come from. Then I remembered... I had signed up for the Chrome OS beta testing program, some time ago.

Holy cow. I was one of the 64,000 lucky recipients of the brand spanking new Chrome OS Notebook!
