Samsung Series 5 Chromebook Now Shipping, Are You In?
Samsung's Series 5 Chromebook is available at Best Buy and Amazon.com, and will set you back $430 if all you want is Wi-Fi connectivity, or $500 if you want the 3G radio. The relatively high price (compared to low end 15.6-inch notebooks) will put Google's Chrome OS to the test.
The Chromebook can best be described as an oversized netbook. It sports a 12.1-inch display, Intel Atom N570 processor (dual-core, 1.66GHz), 16GB solid state drive, 2GB of memory, two USB 2.0 ports, 4-in-1 memory card reader, VGA output, stereo speakers, 1MP webcam, full-sized keyboard, 6-cell battery, and of course the Chrome operating system.
