When it first showed up at CNET's office, we thought it looked awfully familiar. We put it side by side with a black MacBook that Apple shipped in 2007 that we happened to have in-house. For comparison, the Cr-48 notebook is seen here stacked on top of the 13-inch Apple MacBook.
Which is which? The MacBook is on the right, and Google's Cr-48 is on the left. While the hinges look practically the same size, they aren't: 6.5 inches on the MacBook to 6 inches on the Cr-48. And the screen sizes vary slightly: The Chromebook's measures 4.5 inches by 7.5 inches, and the MacBook's 5.25 inches by 8.5 inches.
