CR-48

December 10th, 2010 at 02:05 pm

This isn't your every day freebie, but the prospects are quite interesting.

Google is basically looking for test users of their upcoming Chrome OS. To that end, they're giving out as many as 60,000 laptops FREE! This is what they look like:



True, it doesn't look like much, but frankly, I like the clean, untainted look; free from all those annoying stickers and gaudy plastic logos.

The catch?

1. First, you have to sign up.

2. You are not guaranteed of one.

3. If you do get one, you have to be willing to help them test it and send feedback.

If you like technology, if you're online quite a bit, and you don't mind trying something that isn't fully polished and is still in Beta, feel free to sign up!

    Are you still around? I haven't been on the boards much but it looked like you were missing.

  7. Broken Arrow Says:

    Het CCF! I am still around so to speak. Still trucking along. Just haven't been active at all. Hope you are all doing well.

  8. scfr Says:

    Glad to hear you are well! Like ccf, I pulled up your blog thinking I would post a message letting you know you've been missed.

    since filling this out I have made a conscious move to putting more of my docs online with google, and I LOVE it

    I can use any computer in the house (OK so only the kids will share thiers with me) and I can share my docs with anyone with just a few clicks.

    They haven't sent me a laptop, but they did earn me as a google doc customer (well it is free, so they just get to clean my files for ads)

    Sounds like a freaky commercial, but true.

    BTW I miss you too BA Smile

    BA: You have been missed so much here. I love your posts and you just are a big part of saving advice. Miss your singing too. You have an amazing and soothing voice.

  11. Broken Arrow Says:

    Wow thanks for all the really kind words! I haven't forgotten about you guys!

  12. LuxLiving Says:

    I too miss you! And I've been gone a long while myself. Trying to reactivate myself here once again.

    Broken Arrow, I miss you.
