I applied to get one, but I'm not one of the anointed. I think you get 
one if you are a popular blogger or tech-related website operator. IE: 
the press.

I read an article that it is not really standard hardware, although 
there is a "developer mode" switch on it to allow running code not 
signed by Google that should make it easier to hack. I thought however 
that it still wants to wipe the disk if you mess with that switch. 
Something like putting it back in "normal" mode will re-install 
ChromeOS. At least I hope it would since it would be real hard to get 
back to using stock ChromeOS without a CD.
