Google Chrome Laptop for Student Rental to be announced Today
At the end of last year Google released a limited number of Chrome OS netbooks that you had to sign-up for to get for free. Today, according to Forbes, Google is launching another Google Chrome OS device at the Google I/O. The CR-48 Chrome OS netbook could be the basis for the new offering, but with more performance. The CR-48 had a 12.1" display, "oversized clickable touchpad", world-mode 3G, 802.11n dual-band WiFi, 8+ hours of use and 8+ days of stand-by.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
