...and it appears he works at Google, because I just had a Cr-48 ("Mario") netbook show up on my doorstep! [Beard of Peter Gabriel!]

It runs Chrome OS, which means it's basically a full-screen Chrome browser. As I've standardized on Chrome as my default browser across my other computer systems, it's familiar. Facebook, Evernote, YouTube, and Pandora were all immediately accessible, and I'm looking at other things like HootSuite (a Twitter client).

Meanwhile, I have at least one friend who is JEALOUS AS HELL. [Big Grin]

not to be snarky, but what is so great about a cr-48.

And shouldn't you wait until christmas to unwrap or "unbox" your christmas presents from santa?

Well, the Cr-48 cannot be bought. You have to apply for it, then Google sends you one if they think you're worthy.

And it didn't SAY "Do Not Open Till Christmas," silly person. :-) (In fact, I didn't know what it was or who it was from till I opened the outer carton. It didn't say "Google" on it or anything.)

It has nice graphics on the box, but I don't think I'd want one.

I'm very tempted by the tiny macbook air though.
