I got home from work today to find a surprise from the UPS man. Apparently I was selected by Google to receive a Chrome laptop. There was no warning email and at the same time there was no email telling me that it was not coming so I had not given up hope yet. I have been playing with it for about 2 hours now and so far so good. The hardware it’s self reminds me a little about of the black macbooks that came out a few years ago. I do not mean that it is dated in it’s design but that it is cleanly designed. It has a matte black finish and a very solid feel. It is thinner than one of those previously mentioned macbooks and like the macbooks it is heavier than you think it is going to be at first glance. I will be interested tomorrow to see how long the battery lasts. The screen is remarkable bright and crisp looking. Hopefully someone will get online soon so I can test out the camera to see how it works on video chat. That is about it for now, hopefully I will have more to post tomorrow. I am still in shock a little bit that I was chosen to get one of these. Hopefully I can use it and provide the feedback that Google needs to make it worth them sending it to me.
