My friend has a cr48

and from what he told me, the agreement he had to sign off on requested at least 2 years of feedback, so I would assume that they will be fully functional and get software updates for at least that amount of time.

People have been selling them on eBay since the Pilot program started. I have been checking out the eBay auctions for about the last 6 - 8 weeks and I have seen them sell from as low as $200 to as high as $450 ( I think that one had Windows 7 installed on it).

Maybe I am missing something here but....Why would people who were so lucky and privileged as to be chosen to help test (for Google, mind you) the Cr-48 (for free, mind you), turn around and place their Cr-48 up for auction on eBay??? Is it just me, or is that completely rude, ignorant, and ungrateful??? I would have been thrilled beyond belief to partake in such an honor (a making in history, mind you) and to hear that people are actually selling their Cr-48's on eBay kinda gets under my skin. And what about the 2 years of feedback they signed off to give (according to Cyclesoflife)???

Cr-48 might be cheaper than the newer books, but it has half the CPU horsepower. Given the 'cool factor' of them being the prototype and their very limited availability, I doubt they will be a cost effective choice for regular use.

If I had one, I sure wouldn't be selling it! I agree with Mindy, though... there is something wrong with people agreeing to give feedback for two years and then turning around and selling the unit after only a few weeks, or months.
