Who signed up for the Google Chrome CR-48?

Who signed up for the Google Chrome CR-48?

Barely two days after Google unveiled their very first generic notebook powered by the Chrome OS and people are already getting some test units after signing up in their Pilot Program.

Not much has been revealed about the laptop except that it’s a nameless 12.1″ unit with an Intel Atom processor inside. WiFi, 3G and Bluetooth connectivity is present and Google claims up to 8 hours of battery life.


We have a limited number of Chrome notebooks to distribute, and we need to ensure that they find good homes. That’s where you come in. Everything is still very much a work in progress, and it’s users, like you, that often give us our best ideas about what feels clunky or what’s missing. So if you live in the United States, are at least 18 years old, and would like to be considered for our small Pilot program, please fill this out. It should take about 15 minutes. We’ll review the requests that come in and contact you if you’ve been selected.

This application will be open until 11:59:59 PM PST on December 21, 2010.

You can still sign-up here.

Update: It’s actually just for US residents. However, I still tried applying via the MyUSMailBox service I hold.

    Dati ko pa ‘to nabalitaan… muntik na akong magsign-up e pero nabasa kong pang US residents lang ito. BTW, itong post na ‘to ay para lang ata dun sa mga taga-US na nagbabasa ng Yugatech blog.

    @rob, @avid0n3 – just so happened I also have a US shipping address. Use MYUSMailBox.

  9. Wayne says:

    For US residents lang pala to, sayang naman.

    Nakalagay sa terms and coditions:

    “I understand that Google will only ship the device to a US-based address and cannot send this device to a P.O. Box or address outside of the US.”

    I did, I even got an email (before even signing up) that I’m eligible for a Chrome Notebook :) Waiting for shipping :)

  12. Mark says:

    Nobody from the Philippines, that’s for sure.
    It’s only open for US residents only.

    I still find it odd that Google replaced the CAPSLOCK key with a search key (hotkeyed to google)

  18. JKisaragi says:

    Wanted to sign up upon seeing the invitation email. Alas, after reading “So if you live in the United States”, I knew I was SOL.

    Good for those with US shipping addresses. Hope you get your Chrome Notebooks. :)

  19. neo says:

    i think chrome os is free coz its a linux derivative (opensource).. but incase its paid cheaper un.. lalot may xandros os rin na paid.

    pero ung chromium os (from google rin pero iba nag mamaintain) libre lng may mga builds na na pwede gamitin sa laptop yata.

  20. Benchmark33 says:

    The laptop looks like yung mga binebenta sa V-mall na brandless laptop…yep it looks like Macbook talaga.

    Ayus! They are giving away this just to test the software. Heheheh ayus ha!

    I think the laptop cost around 14k at Compex…if yan nga yung unit ne benta nila…well sympre NO CHROME OS pa yun hehehehe

  21. Adrian says:

    Wow. Ask ko tita ko to buy for me. Thanks for the link.

  22. Subarium says:

    No HDMI? No, thanks. I think i’ll pass on this one even if it’s free.

  23. lolipown says:

    someone doesn’t get the point of this notebook here lol.

  24. Subarium says:

    i do get the point of that notebook…it’s for testing purposes. i just want to get something extra for getting free and there’s no hdmi. of course, there will be times that you want to hook that small notebook onto a bigger screen.

  25. Jaypee says:

    I signed up for it. Hope I get one. :D

  26. Patrick says:

    I did. Pero I used the address of my cousin in SFO.

  27. jenner says:

    i think hindi toh papatok sa pilipinas..
    chrome OS is web based software. hindi lhat ng place sa pilipinas free wifi compare sa singapore or hongkong.
