Our Samsung Chromebook just arrived and we’re giving it the first run through.

The device feels great – a bit bulkier than a MacBook Air but the keyboard is fantastic and the trackpad is much improved over the CR-48 (way bigger).  There is a quick trackpad training exercise at the boot up that is more for the computer than for the user.

The OS is considerably snappier than the CR-48.  Flash is also much improved but not yet at full laptop performance.

We’ll have more soon.

In the meantime, check out the unboxing gallery below:
