Google Chrome in Pictures

Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) is being very modest about the Chrome notebook computers it launched Tuesday, but there's no question this is the company's bid to remake the personal computer.

At yesterday's press event in San Francisco, Google officials stressed that they're just trying stuff out, starting from scratch to build a computer engineered for a Web-driven world.

They wouldn't say that this will do anything like topple Windows. But executives had no problem saying they hope this changes the world, whether or not it's Chrome OS that becomes the dominant force. And they did their best to make a big deal out of this launch.

I have to admit, the thing is really fast. The demo you want to see isn't one full of video or graphics -- it's the downloading of a 100 page PDF.
