The first generation of Google's Chrome notebook, the Cr-48, is a sleek, black, unbranded web-ready device that boots up in just 10 seconds.
It runs on Google's Chrome operating system - which is essentially just a feature-rich version of Google's existing Chrome browser.
The Cr-48 comes with built-in WiFi and 3G for any time, anywhere web browsing, a webcam, a 12in LCD screen and a full-sized keyboard and over-sized touchpad for comfortable web browsing.
"Chrome notebooks are designed to reach the Web instantly," says Google in a blog post.
They are "easy to share among friends and family, and simply by logging in, all of your apps, bookmarks and other browser settings are there. Setting up a new machine takes less than a minute. And even at this early stage, we feel there is no consumer or business operating system that is more secure."
