FETC 2013: Small, Light and Chrome

Chromebook 5Samsung’s Series 5 ChromeBook may look like a notebook and act like a notebook, but it can do much more in the classroom. Rather than Mac, Windows or Linux, it uses Google’s ChromeBook software, which starts up faster and reduces maintenance expenses compared to the typical classroom computer. It weighs 3-pounds, carries a 12.1-inch WXGA screen and uses Intel’s 1.3GHz Celeron 867 processor. Because it stores most of its programs and data in the cloud, the ChromeBook 5 only needs 16GB of on-board solid-state storage space and costs $450. Booth 1215.
