You remember Cr-48 notebooks introduced by Google? Cr-48 notebooks are the first to have Google Chrome installed in them. Its a sort of beta program where users can get these notebooks by applying. Obviously Google is testing their Chrome OS by the end user involvement. But what if someone tried and succeed to install some other operating system in Cr-48 notebook ????? Previously we have seen Ubuntu installed by some hackers in the notebook. Now some hackers are able to install Windows and Mac OS X in the Cr-48 notebook.

We must appreciate Google that they have launched this testing phase first. Now they will be able to find the solution of such hacks before they made it public.

So know you know a little about the Cr-48 notebook.If you want to know a little more in general then here is a small review by Google from Chrome OS Pilot Program Page:

The Cr-48 is the test notebook we designed for the Pilot program. It’s the first of its kind.

It’s ready when you are, booting in about 10 seconds and resuming from sleep instantly. There’s built-in Wi-Fi and 3G, so you can stay connected everywhere, and a webcam for video chat. The vibrant 12-inch LCD display, full-size keyboard and oversized touchpad let you enjoy the web comfortably. And at just 3.8 pounds with over eight hours of active usage and a week of standby time, it’s easy to take along for the ride.
