ComputerWorld - Hello, Chrome OS. Pleasure to meet you.
Google's new operating system and I don't know each other very well -- not yet, anyway. I just met Chrome OS for the first time this morning, when a demo unit of Google's new Cr-48 notebook arrived at my office. The Cr-48 is considered a Chrome OS test notebook; it isn't a final product, and it isn't for sale. Google is sending the notebooks out to a limited group of people in order to get feedback on the system and get it ready for its public debut.
One of the things in short supply during the pandemic is computer hardware. Everything from PC components and Macs to Chromebooks has been scarce, but what if you could turn an aging computer you already own into a Chromebook?
The company will also bring an update for Chrome OS-powered laptops in March 2021, along with the epic list of Chromebook's features
The bulk of these features could arrive as early as next month, with the most prominent arguably being the new built-in screen recording feature.
