Chromebooks sold out at Best Buy, Amazon and Google Play stores

Google sells out of Chromebooks, with retailers like Best Buy and Amazon sold-out

Google's Chromebooks have reportedly sold out at all online retailers who sell the device, with Amazon and Best Buy now out of stock. Not only are the two big retailers out, but Google's own Play Store is out of stock, too.




There's no numbers on just how many were sold, which is unfortunate. The new Chromebook seems to have taken off considerably quicker than its predecessor, which is a great thing for Google. Previous Chromebooks were priced comparable to normal notebooks, even though they were less feature rich.


The new model sports a price tag of just $249, which could be the reason for them selling out, and that would make a hell of a lot of sense. The new Chromebook sports a dual-core A15-based Samsung Exynos Dual SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in flash storage, the usual Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth. The Chromebook features an 11.6-inch 1366x768-pixel display, is 0.8 inches thick, weighs less than 2.5 pounds and sports HDMI, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, an SD card slot, and a SIM card slot.


Google also throws in 100GB of free space on Google Drive, too.
