Samsung Chromebook

During the second day of Google I/O, the company announced two new Chromebooks that will be coming to market on June 15. The Samsung Chromebook and Acer Chromebook will come in 3G and Wi-Fi models, but they also have different price points. The Samsung Chromebook will start at $429 and the Acer Chromebook starts at $349. We now have the proper specifications for each device.

You have to remember that Google’s Chromebooks aren’t meant to be powerhouses. They aren’t running Windows and they aren’t meant to perform actions that are very processor intensive. Chromebook’s strength lies in the cloud. That means everything you save will be stored on Google’s servers. There is no desktop to store content on. Google designed the Chromebook this way so it could have a boot time of only 8 seconds. All the updates are done automatically and there’s no antivirus or malware programs to worry about. What you’re getting basically has the same power as a high-end tablet these days.

Here are the specs for each Chromebook.
