Google has recently announced its first foray into the world of computer hardware.
They are planning to launch the CR-48 chrome notebook to support the browser-based Chrome operating system. The notebook comes in matte black and will run on an atom processor with a 12-inch display and full-size keyboard.
The device, which is only due for launch at the end of 2011, is set to weigh about 1.7kgs and last eights hours on a single battery.
The software will be based on a cloud system that will run entirely on flash drives, enabling users to work and store all information remotely.
Google is running a pilot programme on the device. It will be sent to interested parties who, in turn, must provide Google with relevant feedback
