Google have just launched their latest Chrome OS-based notebook, which is a Samsung made 11.6-inch Chromebook. The new Chromebook is an ARM-based, 0.8-inch thick, 2.43 pound portable machine with 6.5+ hours of battery, boots in under 10 seconds and supports 1080p video playback - not bad for just $249.
Pre-orders are open right now through Amazon and PC World, with the $249 including Google Now integration through Google Drive and includes 100GB of free storage for two years. The Play Store will also feature this new Chromebook, as well as retailers like Best Buy.
Inside the new Samsung Chromebook, we find a dual-core A15-based Samsung Exynos Dual (5250) SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal flash-based storage, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, an 11.6-inch 1366x768-pixel display, one USB3.0 port, one USB2.0 port, combo headphone/mic jack, an SD card slot and a "full-size Chrome keyboard".
