The cr-48 is the first chromebook that was distributed by google to beta testers beginning in 2010. It features an intel atom processor, 2gb of ram, a 16gb ssd and atheros wifi. All compenents work with free software. I've installed the h20 insyde bios since that is documented but have not attempted to install coreboot as it is undocumented on the cr-48.
