1 of 60,000 - Chrome OS

Such a cool box!
I am not sure how I got to be one of the lucky, select few to receive one of the notebooks running Googles new Chrome OS. Perhaps I was just fast on the draw, perhaps it was because I scanned the QR code during the event and registered from the resulting url? I didn't have to fill out the justification that others did, just my name and address. Regardless, it is here now (amazing how fast them can get these things shipped and distributed), and I am drafting this post on my new laptop.

Despite the already considerable amount of time I spend online, in the clouds, I am a bit nervous about a laptop that I cannot install any applications on. Its just me and the Internet on this machine, and I am pretty excited to see how well that combination really works.

I plan to post a number of videos, pictures and comments about the new device and how it works out for me. I will say that the hardware is very nice for what amounts to a free computer for me to use. It is going to take me a while to get used to the touchpad.  I am not sure I have ever had trouble adjusting to the touchpad on a new PC, but this one is giving me some issues.

I really cannot thank Google enough for selecting me, however it actually happened.
