I'm part of the pilot project for the Google Chrome Cr-48 and they are unique. Now since we use Google mail at work we link to our email accounts that normally we can only access through our firewall. The one issue is when you go to the Chrome store and download stuff some of the stuff trys to install and you get the error unknown format because this isn't running with windows below it. You can only do internet things with it. No writing to a hard drive or doing things locally. Everything is Google and no Microsoft at all.
