Google destroys 25 Chrome notebooks to highlight the advantages of the cloud

Today, Google’s prototype notebook dubbed the Cr-48, began showing up on the doorsteps of a lucky few. Fortunately, a few of us here were fortunate enough to be a part of that group and we just recently gave you our first impressions.

F**k it, we'll do it live!

Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.

Now that the device is out in the open, Google has posted a pretty entertaining video of the Chrome notebook through their googlechrome YouTube account.

In the video, our host Glen Murphy uses his Chrome notebook to type a note to a friend. His device  is then repeatedly destroyed in several dramatic ways, however, because his information isn’t store on the device itself, he is able to pick up right where he left off.

It’s done really well, just like the notebook.
