Featured: Google’s Done it Again! $250 Samsung 11.6″ Chromebook Unveiled

October 18, 2012 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Today Google unveiled a new Chromebook manufactured by Samsung. It’s an 11.6″ device with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, but we’ll get deeper into the specs in a minute. Take a minute and think about this, Google brought us a quad-core 7″ tablet for $199-$249 depending on storage, and now you can get a Chromebook for $250. If you buy both of them you’ll still have $50 left compared to your friend that bought the Microsoft Surface. Food for thought from Google+. Now onto the specs:

  • 11.6″ display
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB SSD
  • 100GB of Google Drive storage free for 2 years
  • 1.7 GHz dual-core Exynos 5250 chip
  • weighing in at 2.4lbs

There is also a 3G model which will sell for $329. Some pretty good specs on this new Samsung Chromebook, and for the price of $250, you surely can’t beat that. Now a Chromebook can’t do everything a laptop can, but it can do the most of it. And if you’re already deeply in the Google ecosystem, like all of us here at Android Headlines, this is probably a great option for you.

Before you leave, we’ve got a gallery full of pictures of this new Chromebook, which Google is just calling “Samsung Chromebook”. Guess their using Apple’s naming convention for the iPad? Anyways go ahead and let us know in the comments what you think of this new Chromebook.
