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.
