My Google Cr-48 has arrived: First impressions

ZDNet's Larry Dignan just got his Google Cr-48 and couldn't resist firing it up and taking it through the paces. Here's his early take on the computer.

My Google Chromebook landed via FedEx just about an hour ago. Naturally, I couldn't resist firing that puppy up.

Now this isn't a full-blown review, but immediate impressions of what I liked and areas that are going to take some work to get used to. The ultimate judge of this thing will be to my 7-year-old daughter. To her, the browser is the operating system.

Bottom line: For a long-time PC and Mac user, the Chromebook is almost too simple.

Read my full stream-of-consciousness review of the Cr-48 on ZDNet's Between the Lines.
