Google's much-anticipated Chromebooks are finally here. At the Google I/O conference Wednesday, Google unveiled the first laptops to be sold running the Chrome OS--two models from Samsung and one from Acer. The concept is popular: Over a million people requested the Chrome CR-48 prototype netbook, which was not made available to the general public. [Watch a video of the Google Chromebooks announcement.]
Chromebooks are designed to be lean and quick and take advantage of the cloud as much as possible. That means they'll be thin on storage space but will boot up in seconds, according to Google. Both systems will contain dual-core Intel Atom processors. Let's take a closer look.
