Well, that was unexpected!
Last week I was awarded a book for my activities on the forums over at IT Knowledge Exchange. I had expected that I would be receiving my prize in the mail soon. So, when I arrived home and saw a box on my porch, I figured that it was my book. Well, that is, until I picked it up…that was one heavy book! When I opened the rather nondescript package, I was quite pleasantly surprised by what I saw: instead of my book it was a brand-new Google CR-48 notebook computer! I had signed up with Google last year to review one of these beauties, and I never heard anything more about it. Suffice it to say that I had totally given up on ever getting one in the mail.
I have taken plenty of photos as I unpacked it, and now I am waiting on the battery to charge. Expect to see the photos posted soon for your viewing pleasure!
As a developer and web designer I am quite interested to see how well the CR-48 handles my needs. In addition to that, my son uses a home school curriculum delivered via the Internet. With those diverse needs, I plan on giving this little Chromebook a thorough test!
