Acer Aims to Bring Chrome OS to Netbooks Before Anyone Else

The Chairman of Acer has stated that his company will be the first to release a netbook running the Chrome OS from Google. The netbook is set to be released in the second half of next year, following the projections from Google. However, Acer has been working on the netbook for a few months now and could have a head start on the competition. Dell has already made a custom build of Chromium OS for its mini10v, which users can get for free. There are several other companies that will be releasing their own netbook based on Chrome OS, so consumers will have a wide array of choices.

Good for them! They better have a solid 3G carrier to go along...

the 32 bit w7 i have installed on my rinky dink netbook works but seems a bit cumbersome at times so it just seems like a nobrainer to go with an os that has a smaller footprint and needs less resources to get the job done. i'd like to see this happen

How is that netbook working for you?
