I have one! (chrome netbook)

Filed under

A few days ago, I ordered a book for my classes next quarter on Amazon. Came back home today thinking that it might have arrived, and found a package on my doorstep. I quickly opened it up to make sure it was the right book, and, wait... what is that?

Well, that's some interesting packaging... let's see if the book is still in there... wait... WHAT?

Oh my. That's one of those fancy Cr-48 "Pilot" notebooks. On my doorstep. And in my hands.

A little backstory: a few days ago, I noticed a small banner on the top of Chromium, asking if I wanted to help test out Chrome OS. "Sure," I thought, "why not." Filled out a quick developer application and submitted, not thinking much of it. Never did I believe I'd actually have one in my hands.

Let's dive in.
