Google has the ambition of entering practically all the software and hardware markets, but it is hard, especially in the hardware area, where they need to sign all kinds of partnerships. For example, the latest release is the Chromebook, a laptop based in the Google Chrome OS, available with Samsung and Acer. Let’s see the main features of this device that can be considered as a novelty in the world of hardware.
- unlimited storage space
- no virus problems
- data protection
The Chromebook is based on the concept of customizability, meaning that the computer will have no programs, or storage data, therefore all the operations will be made on the internet. In this case, you won’t have to worry about viruses, losing data or storage space.
- good price
- good connectivity
- BestBuy and Amazon
The price for this Samsung 5 series is about 430 dollars, but for the version with 3G connection, the price could go up to 500 $. It might be a little higher that what we are used with, but we are talking about a new concept, therefore it will take a while before the price would be accessible for everyone. On the other hand, it is a good price, considering that the majority of new devices released by other companies have higher prices.
The Chromebook will be available in two colors, black and white, and you can already order it from BestBuy and Amazon.
Technical features of Samsung Chromebook
- Intel technology
- 16 GB Drive
- Wi-Fi and optional 3G
The Chromebook comes with an Intel ATOM processor of 1.66 GHz, with a screen of 12.1 inches, on a maximum resolution of 1280×800. The 16 GB drive is needed to run the current processes of the computer and to store local files. Programs, video and audio files as well as documents will be stored online, eliminating the annoying worry of the user about hard disc space and processor speed.
The Wi-Fi connection will be available as default, but for the 3G connection, you will have to pay more. It has 2 USB ports, a memory card slot and a trackpad. The Weight is about 1.48 kg, which is great for a laptop.
Acer has a different configuration for the Chromebook, but we can’t say that Samsung or Acer has its advantages or disadvantages, and it is up to the user to decide which one is better.
Acer technical specifications
- Intel ATOM Processor
- Good resolution
- HD Webcam
The Acer configuration has a dual core processor N570, which was heralded as reliable and fast. It also has a maximal resolution of 1366×768 which is better than the one of Samsung, and also autonomy of 6 Hrs. the webcam is also good, with HD support and with 1.3 MP, and with a noise canceling microphone and High Definition Audio Support
As it is a new concept, we can’t say if the Chromebook will be a success or not, but it is surely a great idea that will revolutionize the world of laptops and internet.
