I forgot about the company shipping these. If you're not home, they just leave it at the doorstep? No paper slip of re-delivery?


Yep they just leave it at your doorstep. That's how I received mine back in January.

How do you know if you've been selected? Do they shoot you a email or anything?

I've been thinking of listing my CR-48 notebook on here to make some trades and earn a little cash.

They definitely stopped shipping these out back in March.

Just out of curiosity, what were the hardware specs for the laptop? Also any pics that can be posted would be awesome.

Bump!

I had signed up under a "business" use way back while you could. I work in the IT department, and, put in for 3 total (you could request multiples under business).

Well, one showed up a couple days ago! :D I'm on vacation but my coworker called me to let me know. I'll be picking it up today.

Perhaps you can gut it for parts and sell them on craigslist?? Morbid to be sure. BUT EFFECTIVE!

I really would like to test one out. But I'm a sucker for new technology. I sign up for the Beta programs on almost EVERYTHING... Lol

I talked to a Google Tech Rep today. He said, at this point, only those that had signed up under "business" use will even be getting these anymore. (Which is why I got one.)

So, don't get your hopes up (unless you are/were with a business and signed up as such).

And so my small flame of hope is extinguished once again...

Hell I forgot all about this thing till I saw this thread on the front page. Would have been nice to get one just to play around with and give my friend hell about it.
