The Google Chromebook. A New Kind of Netbook

Google recently announced the new generation of netbook, the Google Chromebook. It is a netbook that runs on their Chrome operating system for laptops. The new netbook will be different than those in the past, it will be a web only run netbook. Everything that you do on the Chromebook will go through the web. The operating system is based from the company’s popular browser the Chrome browser. Google has created their Chromebook with the newly formed partnership with Acer and Samsung. Each of these companies will make their own version of the Chromebook.

The Acer Chromebook

The Acer Chromebook will have an Intel dual-core Atom processor, 6 hours of battery life, weighs around 3 pounds, has an 11.6 inch HD display, and will have Wifi or even 3G capability. The starting price for the Acer Chromebook will be around $350. Another neat process with the both versions of the Chromebook, it’s instant on capability. The computer will boot up instantly instead of loading a time consuming operating system that takes an eternity to boot up.

The Samsung Chromebook

The Samsung version of the Chromebook will have pretty much the same internally, however, the display will be a larger 12.1 inch HD display, and the battery life will be 8.5 hours. For storage on both models you will have the usual SD card slots and USB slots. The Samsung Chromebook Wifi version will be $430, and around $500 for the 3G version. Both will be available at Amazon.com and BestBuy.com around the middle of June.
