We all knew when Chrome sprang for the loins of Google that it was only a matter of time before the OS started to pop up in cheap netbooks and nettops all over the place. Google has plans for its own Chrome netbooks and the specs have been leaked for one of the first machines.
Google is said to be talking to a few sources to build the netbook and that options on the table will sell for under $300. As for specs, rumors have a 10.1-inch machine packing an ARM processor and the graphics handled by NVIDIA Tegra.
A multi touch panel is also rumored to be in the works along with a 64GB SSD, WiFi, 2GB of RAM and 3G connectivity. Bluetooth, Ethernet, a webcam, 4 and 6-cell batteries and optional GPS are also said to be coming. I don't see a SSD that large in a netbook selling for under $300 unless the other hardware is dirt cheap.
