    Default Google Chrome Laptops for Summer 2011

    Google Chrome Laptops are now expected to be on sale to retail customers in Summer 2011.

    Google product manager Sundar Pichai said, Google were still fixing some bugs and improving compatibility with devices such as digital cameras on Chrome OS.

    Google is launching a pilot program giving test Cr-48 notebooks to qualified users U.S. developers, schools and businesses, sign up at: http://www.google.com/chromeos/pilot-program.html.

    The keyboard has no function keys, but a full row of Apple Keyboard-style actions. The caps lock key has been replaced with a search button.

    Inventec has confirmed that it has already shipped about 60,000 Chrome OS-based netbooks to Google, which are expected to be used for testing.

    engadget have published a review and video of the new Google Chrome laptop: "Google Cr-48 Chrome laptop preview (update: video!)" which, to me, looks like a black MacBook at: http://www.engadget.com/2010/12/09/g...aptop-preview/

    Reading this review and a few others on the net, the laptop does not really do much unless it has a live internet connection, I guess it will improve a lot by the time it or a retail version hits the shops!
