The Cr-48 continues to be supported by Google with updates to the OS. For a beta device that was offered for free about a year ago, it's impressive. However, a single-core Intel Atom N455 processor hobbles the speed and the amount of websites you can load up on it. The chiclet keyboard is great to use. The trackpad is decent, two-finger scrolling is possible, but it jumps at times, which sucks when you're typing something and all of a sudden it starts typing elsewhere.The Cr-48 is meant to be used exclusively on the Internet. There is no such thing as an offline for this laptop, which may be good or bad depending on your needs. Google Docs is not a replacement for Microsoft Office though. The web apps may not a be a good replacement to the established software on a Mac or Windows either. However, I see students flocking to this because it has automatic updates, long-term support, and it's cheaper than a Windows and Mac computer, but also stronger than a netbook. The matter material makes it the best feeling laptop I've ever held. Considering that this was a free laptop I received from Google, I have no major complaints towards the laptop itself. It does what it needs to do and it's good at it.
