- Speed and features The CR48's boot time is incredibly fast. Web pages also load quickly. The lack of the ability to run native application is definitely a setback for power users.
- Design and form factor The sleek unbranded look of the CR48 is definitely a great part of the device. Although the device looks nice, it easily picks up smudges on the entire device.
- Battery life Although I have not done any scientific testing on this device's battery, it seems sufficient. If the battery drains completely, it may cause the device issues.
- Display The display is crisp, and displays pictures well. Unfortunately, the display smudges easily, and sometimes becomes too dark to see, when the battery is too low.
- Durability Although the device looks good, the materials feel a bit cheap. I would be scared to drop the device, as it may not fare too well. A protective case is advised.
- Expandability There's no seemingly easy way to add hard drive memory or RAM to the Cr-48. The Cr-48's insides are pretty full, but a professional may find room for additions.
- Noise Even though the device is fan-cooled, it's completely silent. It would be nice if the fan made a bit more noise, as the device gets a bit warm when it charges.
- Portability (size / weight) The 12.1 inch screen size makes it great for portability, but some may find it too small. I have not had any problems with the weight of the device, at 3.8lbs.
