Google Announces A $249 Samsung Chromebook Powered By Exynos 5 ARM Processor
By on October 18th, 2012

Google has out of the blue announced a new Chromebook manufactured by Samsung. The 0.8-inch thick body of the Chromebook from Samsung packs in 16GB of storage space, 2GB of RAM, an 11.6-inch screen, Bluetooth, microSD card slot, HDMI-out port, two USB ports and finally, an Exynos 5 Dual processor!

To keep the price of the Chromebook down to $249, Google and Samsung decided to use an ARM based processor instead of a traditional x86 ULV processor from Intel. Even then, the A15 is no slouch as it was initially designed to power servers before being scaled back for other portable devices.

Google touts that the Chromebook boots in less than 10 seconds, and can easily playback 1080p HD videos without breaking a sweat. The whole UI of the Chrome OS has been GPU rendered as well, which should allow for a buttery smooth UI browsing experience.

All potential Chromebook buyers will also get 100GB of free storage space on Google Drive to where they can keep all their files secured.

The new Samsung Chromebook will be available for pre-order starting from today on Amazon, Best Buy, PC World and other retailers. It will hit the retail stores next week, and can be purchased directly from the Play Store as well.
