Google’s Chromebook Model Number

Google is calling its device the “Cr-48”. “Cr” is the chemical symbol for
chromium, which means 48 must be the atomic weight. Looking among the
isotopes of chromium <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isotopes_of_chromium>,
Cr-48 is radioactive with a half-life about 22 hours.

I suppose that’s to indicate it’s a testing-only product with a limited
lifetime.
