Post Posted: Thu Dec 16, 2010 2:00 pm   Post subject: Test Drive Chrome OS with your FREE Cr-48 Chrome Notebook Reply with quote Back to top  

We're all ears

Quote:
The Chrome operating system is a work in progress. We’re looking for the right users to try it out and tell us how we can make it better.

Each participant in the Pilot program will receive a Cr-48 Chrome notebook; in return, we'll expect you to use it regularly and send us detailed feedback.

Sound interesting? Please note:

Chrome OS is for people who live on the web.
It runs web-based applications, not legacy PC software.

The Pilot program is not for the faint of heart.
Things might not always work just right.

The Pilot program is open to individuals, businesses, schools, non-profits and developers based in the United States. Learn about Chrome notebooks for business

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. We'll review the requests that come in and contact you if you've been selected.

Apply Now


[Edit]
Update: Apparently, I am 100% web-based >.<

They are giving away 2,000 notebooks a day for 30 days, and they started a few days ago. Shipping is by ground, and you can track shipments to your city or ZIP code here. You have no other advance warning if you are chosen, it will just arrive...

Submitted. The form itself has pretty limited canuck love, so it will be interesting to see what happens.

It let me register today.

I wasn't sure if I should have put myself down for Individual or Business. My employer as started to transition to Google Apps for Business. Wasn't sure if I chose business if I would have a better shot. I just chose individual then put in the comments about our companies transition. Hope I get one. If you choose business it asks how many netbooks you want.
