Google Chrome OS netbook has specs possibly leaked The IBTimes, a small UK tech site, is reporting today that the Google Chrome OS netbook has had its specs leaked, however it may just be another rumor based on some facts and a probability game.
According to the site, the highly anticipated (but unofficial) netbook will include the following specs (via Crunch):

* NVIDIA Tegra platform with ARM CPU
* 10.1-inch TFT HD-ready multi-touch display
* 64GB solid state drive
* 2GB of RAM
* Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, Ethernet, USB ports, webcam, card reader
* Subsidized at less than $300, sold directly to consumers by Google


The RAM, the processor and the standard goodies (3G, Wi-Fi, etc) are more than likely but the pricing, the SSD and the screen are still likely rumor, especially since there is no chance that a multi-touch display could sell for under $300, unless the wireless carrier subsidy is very heavy.

Ugh...an ARM processor. Might as well be a cell phone.

Ugh, sounds like Apple. "Our OS will only be on this hardware!" Only difference is that the source is available, and they aren't AS pissy.

Yadda, yadda, yadda! Netbooks suck, anyway...and Chrome OS isn't even really a full-fledged 'OS.'
