Google Chrome OS Pilot Program

I am getting a pop up alert for that each time I open a new tab in Google Chrome browser!

So eagerly I clicked on the link to Apply Now. It directs me to the Test Drive a Chrome Notebook application.

Google is distributing a limited number of Chrome notebooks to test drive. So if you live in the United States, are at least 18 years old, and you could be part of the small Pilot program.

I just read the fine print for those selected in the Chrome OS Pilot Program

  • Google will collect anonymous browsing statistics and other usage data for tracking and analysis purposes
  • You agree to participate in all product feedback studies conducted by the Google Chrome OS team for the duration of the Pilot Program and agree to be opted in to the Chrome OS feedback group.
  • Google will only ship the device to a US-based address and cannot send this device to a P.O. Box or address outside of the US.
  • You agree to not sell or transfer the device to anyone else, unless under written instruction from Google to do so.
  • Replacement of broken devices is subject to Google’s review and Google may elect not to replace a non-functioning or broken device, at Google’s sole discretion. In the event that Google elects to replace a broken device, Google will cover all shipping and handling fees.
  • Google reserves the right to contact you about Chrome OS or related Google products by email, phone, post, or in-person upon submitting this application.

You can directly apply for the pilot program from the website also.

Cr-48 Chrome Notebook

The new Cr-48 Google Chrome OS Notebook boots in 10 seconds and resumes from sleep instantly. There’s built-in Wi-Fi and 3G, so you can stay connected everywhere, and a webcam for video chat. The vibrant 12-inch LCD display, full-size keyboard and oversized touchpad let you enjoy the web comfortably. Weighing 3.8 pounds with over eight hours of battery life, it is a winner.

But the best part is – All your apps, documents, and settings are stored safely in the cloud. So even if you lose your computer, you can just log into another Chrome notebook and get right back to work.

    Me too! I saw the same message as the image in your post, but only on December 19 and 20th, then it ended (I’m in the U.S.A., use Chrome browser). It would be wonderful to be one of the lucky ones, and be selected for the Cr-48 test.

    Please write a follow-up post and let us know if you are chosen for the test-drive program!

    I found this just randomly Googling… and immediately disliked the idea. You know, being a British tech-savvy guy.
    I’d love one of these to be delivered to me, but noo…
