Chemistry, anyone? You might probably be thinking of a Chromium isotope. Well, you’re right. The Cr-48 is an isotope of the element Chromium. But for Google, it’s more than that.
Cr-48 is the first notebook or laptop to run the anticipated Chrome OS announced last year.
Google Chrome OS is still unfinished though; however, the first notebook to run the OS is set to be released mid-2011.
Have a quick glimpse of Cr-48 notebook in action.
Though the unit is not for sale, you may want to check the specs and features below.

Interesting. I wish Samsung, Acer, and among other manufacturers will release their Chrome OS notebooks at a more reasonable price next year. What do you think?
