We told you that Google was giving away 60,000 Chrome OS Notebooks (http://www.chromeosforums.net/forum/chrome-os-news/33-worried-you-wont-get-google-cr-48-netbook-think-again.html) and they are still sending them out. If you haven't signed up, I would suggest doing so. You can find out a bit more about signing up here (http://www.chromeosforums.net/forum/general-chrome-os/35-how-apply-free-google-cr-48-netbook.html). We also told you about how to see if your city has received one (http://www.chromeosforums.net/forum/chrome-os-news/99-web-app-tracks-google-cr-48-chrome-os-netbooks.html) of the notebooks... just to satisfy your curiosity of who might be getting one near you even if you don't get one. Now thanks to the author of CR-48 shipment calculator (http://www.chromeosforums.net/forum/cr-48-chrome-notebook/66-cr-48-tracker-17.html#post3354) we bring you.... the top 10 cities you should be jealous of. The top 10 list shows the cities who've received the most Google CR-48 shipments. So who are they? Well, here's the top 10 list!


San Francisco, CA - 556
Mountain View, CA - 482
New York, NY - 271
San Jose, CA - 233
Seattle, WA - 206
Sunnyvale, CA - 158
Chicago, IL - 150
Los Angeles, CA - 138
Austin, TX - 136
Brooklyn, NY - 131


Glad to see my hometown of Austin, TX up there on the list but it's heavily dominated by California for sure. Here's to hoping that you still receive yours before the new year!

How do they figure where you live? I don't remember entering my mailing address...


EDIT:
NVM. I guess I wasn't paying attention... Lol.

None since the 17th to my zip. 5 in my zip, 6 in my city. I entered to the Dev part, because I have created some personal extensions for Google Chrome, and I am sure the basic functions remain the same between the OS and the Web Browser themselves... :)

1 in my town on 12/09, but the chances of getting another one here in "fly over" country are scarce

You never know!

They have to read each one and determine if they are worthy of one. Google likes uniqueness. And being where you are and how scarce it is to get one makes it all that more likely that, if you applied, you just might get it. :)

I'm always right. Lol.

On the bright side, there are only 15,024/60,000 shipped. I seriously doubt 60,000 people signed up...

Do you think I could sign my wife up for one too? Or would they disqualify me because the address is the same? (Maybe I could use her parents address and have it sent in her name???) She needs a notebook of her own. But I can't afford to buy her one right now. Lol. Maybe I could work the system.

I've looked at numerous states, and it looks like nothing has gone out since the 22nd. Probably because of the holidays. They'll probably pick it back up again after the New Years...

Just because you signed up does not mean you're not gonna get a notebook they select people at random and ppl hoo they think would be good testers but i signed evrry one up hoo lives with so hopefully all of us who would actually test the note book will get one plus theres still 35000 left so cross ur fingers plus live in ny ,ny

Either they're being really picky about who they want to give these to, or not enough people signed up. I'm hoping that not enough people signed up so I can get one. =D

It should be... They extended the date because they didn't have enough signups. I just checked some of the major cities, and no one has gotten anything since the 21st. However, I am think the tracker (http://www.addicted-gamer.com/cr48-tracker/) was designed to stop on the 21st, when the original date for it to end was set. Now that they extended it, I don't know if it's updating anymore...

I signed up after Christmas (maybe the 26th or 27th). Haven't gotten anything. I'd love to test it out if they send one... if not, oh well...

Yup. Still no word on them yet... Any word from the developer of the tracker, and what the deal is with it?

Last I heard from him was on 12-26 and it was discouraging news, for me at least


Also, for those of you that don't understand how the package to your ZIP in the tracker wasn't yours... The tracker has been visited by over 140,000 unique IP addresses... And, my guess is that is a relatively small number compared to the number of people that applied. So, only 1 in 9 people checking the tracker is getting one. Yikes!

Yep, I don't know what to think, last I heard they sent out less than 20k and extended the sign up because they didn't have enough applicants, but here I sit... empty handed

http://addicted-gamer.com/cr48-tracker/ the tracker is down indefinitely:(((((((((((((

That's disappointing, but it could mean that it will come back soon if Google decides to start shipping again. Maybe they're still waiting for more people to sign up so they can mass ship the notebooks out.

good luck. I hope I get one too, but don't have too much hope.

Just FYI for everyone else: The tracker is down! Per thechromesource.com "Sadly, the resources used to keep the tracker running (both the hardware as well as my time) are being re-tasked to a commercial project (i.e. $$$), so this little pet project of mine ($i.e. no $$$) won't be up for much longer."
