Google Chrome Laptop Now Comes With Stickers

One of the worst things about getting a new PC laptop is that it comes with all those tacky branding stickers sit on the palm rest. (Though we're sure that some people may love them since they can reassure the owner of just what brand of CPU and GPU are inside, as well as what kind of operating system is showing itself on the LCD display.)

The lack of branding made the Google Chrome OS Cr-48 notebook a breath of fresh air. It was stark like a black MacBook, but it didn't come with any kind of glowing logo in the back.

For those who just love the stickers, Google is now including a sheet of the sticky things in with each of the latest Cr-48 shipments to testers.

Luigi Montanez got his notebook, which was exactly like ours, except for the stickers. He blogged about it, which lets us know exactly what we're missing.

    A bit like making your own computer and getting the stickers to your components.

    A step in the right direction I say.

    Google if you don't send one of those to me in Australia (stop piloting on one land mass!), one day you'll regret it! I'll come knocking on your door with ideas and I won't tell you them!! And people tell me I have good idea's.

    Too bad the pilot program is limited only to the U.S.

    A real pilot program for a company this size should be carried out on each continent, as I'm sure different usage habits will occur thus providing a much better picture to Google.

    This being said... I want my Chrome Notebook!!!!

    Not as bad as I do, I applied for the pilot program even though I don't live in the U.S.

    Maybe they would be generous enough to give me one (I wish, too bad U.S only), I make video's and reviewing a chrome notebook would really help me get my views up.

    I'm not too crazy about the stickers. Looks like something for children.

    It's kinda funny how Google has such great public feedback on everything they do. When the Chrome notebook first surfaced here at Tom's, I read many people praising its design. It was a plain black notebook. Now they praise the colorful stickers. I can't help but imagine that people wouldn't have that reaction if the same product was released by, say, Acer. It's the google magic.

    We now live in an age where 'the latest thing' really is the must have, must comment, must praise item. Doesn't matter if it doesn't offer anything at all new (Google laptops) etc, it only matters that as individuals, we're cool, have the latest tech and love it no matter what.

    Then again, I must admit that Sony, Fujitsu, Acer, Asus, Dell, HP etc aren't exactly setting the world on fire and are, to a certain poiint, damn lazy.

    Either way, it sickens me what we're becomming. Remember boys, that hot blonde that you see every single day probably isn't bothered of you like the latest Android device, but she might be bothered if you can fix her 'windows' machine. :)
