Its been one month, today, since I first received my Cr-48. So how has the Cr-48 changed my life in the past month? Well, to be honest, I barely use it anymore. It comes with me to work everyday but, due to the limitations of Chrome OS, I find myself almost always going to one of my other machines because I need to do more than the Cr-48 will allow me to do.
The included 3G has been quite helpful. I’ve used it on a few onsite jobs at work that don’t have wireless and its been a big help. Its also a great go-to machine for quickly looking something up or browsing on the go. I used it at the airport while waiting for my brother and his wife to arrive. I used it at the hospital while waiting for my mom to finish an appointment. For these types of situations, the Cr-48 is perfect. But not because of Chrome OS, but because it has an internal 3G modem.
The Cr-48 has its purposes, but, unfortunately, those purposes are still too limited for me to be able to consider the Cr-48 my everyday machine. Whats interesting is I had this same feeling when I originally tried out Google Chrome (internet browser) a few years ago, and now its the only browser I’m comfortable with using. Hopefully, one day, Chrome OS will be perfected enough to be an everyday go-to system.
