Chrome OS has awesome, awesome potential.
The Cr-48 trackpad is one of the worst things I’ve ever had the privilege of using.
It should surprise absolutely no one that they’re not actually releasing this product. But it is surprising just how many people, namely press, that they’re sending it to. You can say “ignore the hardware” all you want, but it still is the crucial entry point. It almost ruins the entire thing. They should have just sent out Chrome OS loaded on some Eee PCs.
All that said, the battery life appears to be amazing. Better-than-MacBook-Air-amazing. Need to test it out more though. More to come on TechCrunch, I’m sure.
