Google Cr-48 Chrome notebook teardown

Keyboard and trackpad

The Cr-48 Chrome notebook has a full-size keyboard, but with some notable exceptions. For example, there is not Caps Lock key. Instead, Google has included several webcentric keys, such as Forward, Back, and Reload.

A standard trackpad rounds out the machine's built-in input devices.
