Looks like someone from the pilot program already got their hand on a Chrome Notebook and put up an unboxing video on youtube:

Interesting to see that the Caps Lock button is a Search button. As annoying as it is when I hit the Caps Lock by accident, it might be just as annoying to accidentally start a new search mid-sentence.

Anyone else get one?

The nice thing is they let you change the behavior of the search key in the settings, you can make it a CAPS lock key as well if you wish.

I received one on Thursday. I like it so far and have been using it exclusively since I got it. I haven't missed the caps lock key at all. I've already learned to use the search key to open a new tab instead of ctrl-t. I'm worried that it will create a new problem when I go back to my MBP: I'll start hitting caps lock to open a new tab.

I'll post some overall thoughts in a bit.

It has been a bit frustrating to me. Often a domain will just stop responding. I can open a new tab and surf other domains just fine but sometimes anything on single a domain [say google.com] will just stop loading. I have to wait it out and eventually it will or restart the computer to get it back. It happens so often it makes me not want to use it. Otherwise, it has been a pleasant experience, a little claustrophobic feeling not being able to get out of the "browser".

This experience has been on WiFi, haven't used 3G much.

I'm not having this problem at all. Have you tried it on different networks? If it's still doing it I would submit a bug report.

Yeah, I have submitted a bug report about it. I don't have the issue with any other computer on my home network which consists of two PC's a laptop and two smart phones. :/
