Sony VAIO laptop with Chrome OS

Google Cr-48 was the first netbook with fully functional Chrome OS. Now, Sony is getting ready to release their own laptop specifically designed for Chrome operating system.

Google Chrome OS is internet dependent using applications, such as: Gmail, Google Docs, Dropbox, etc.

Sony is developing their own laptop under VAIO brand with Chrome OS. Design wise this laptop will resemble Cr-48 with exception of a smaller screen, 11.6-inches. Interesting enough, VAIO Chrome OS will be working on NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip (not Intel Atom like Cr-48), 1GB RAM and 16GB built-in flash-memory. Battery life is expected to last for 8 hours, and this piece weighs at 1kg.

Google stopped manufacturing Cr-48 and is mainly concentrating on working with their partners on commercial release of laptops with Chrome OS. There has been a rumor that ASUS is developing their own $200 dollar laptop with Chrome operating system.
