Chromebook, Computers, Google, Laptops / Notebooks, Tech Digest news

Samsung have become the first company to reveal a Google “Chromebook” netbook computer, the Series 5, running the search giant’s Chrome web-based OS.

The core specs read as:

. CPU: Intel N570 1.66Ghz Dual Core

· Operating System: Chrome OS

· Storage: SSD 16GB

· Memory: 2GB DDR3

· Screen: 12.1-inch WXGA LCD (1280×800), SuperBright (300 nit)

· Resolution: 1280×800

· Security: TPM

· Battery: Li-Ion Polymer 61 Wh, Up to 8.5Hrs

· Weight: 3.2 lbs.

· I/O Ports: 2 x USB, SIM Card Slot, 4-In-1 (SD, SDHC, MMC), VGA Dongle, DC-in

But that only paints half the picture. Running Google’s web-centric new OS, it has the potential to be far more secure than a Windows PC as all programs and definitions are constantly updated from a central location. You also need less local storage as so much info is stored in the cloud, also resulting in near-instant boot times.

Available from Amazon and PC World on the 24th June, the 3G Wi-Fi model will retail at £399 and the Wi-Fi model has a price point of £349. With current exchange rates as they are however, thats roughly £100 more than our US counterparts will be paying. Poor show, Samsung.
