Google has teamed up with Samsung to bring us a fast, light and cheap laptop.. assuming ‘us’ and ‘everyone’ are limited to those in only certain countries. Currently you can purchase the Chromebook directly if you are in the US, UK, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, South Korea and the Netherlands.. but not here in Australia.
Shame because it doesnt look so bad:
Runs on Chrome OS
Just over 1kg
Over 6hrs Battery Life
100GB space using Google Drive (Free for 2 years)
Under 10s boot up time
11.6 inch screen
Built-in dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n
1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0
Bluetooth 3.0™ Compatible
I’m sure there is a load more stuff but since I’m in Australia and my $249 is pretty useless, I can’t really dive into it. But you can read the official Chromebook product page here or watch the promo video below.
