Chrome Plated Notebook
What looks like a notebook, runs like a notebook but uses Google’s Chrome software? It’s the latest Samsung Series 5 ChromeBook laptop, which is 0.8 inches thick, weighs just 3.3 pounds and offers a full day battery. The ChromeBook is based on an Intel N570 dual-core Atom processor and 12-inch screen. The best part is that the WiFi-only model with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of flash storage will cost $429, and be available to schools with soft5ware for as little as $20 a month, making it cheaper to get than many netbooks. Expect to also see ChromeBooks from Acer costing less in the next month.
