CR-48 Chromebook


The CR-48 was the first Chromebook ever built. The web-based computer was designed by Google as a reference device to see how well the platform could take off. It was given away to many test volunteers across the US and was never available for purchase, but one can say it opened the doors to what Chrome OS has become.
