Less than a week ago, Google unveiled its new $249 Exynos 5 powered Chromebook. With such a low price and an ARM processor, Google has intelligently positioned the Samsung Chromebook as an secondary laptop for many.
The Chromebook is already up for pre-order in many retail stores and online retailers and should be available in stores by the end of this week. However, beginning from today, interested buyers can directly purchase the Chromebook from Google via its Play Store. As of now, the estimated shipping time is around 3-5 days.
The Chromebook will be the first non-Android running device ever to be available in the Play Store and clearly shows Google’s intention with the Play Store. The Samsung made Chromebook packs in a 11.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1366×768, an Exynos 5 Cortex-A15 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB SSD, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, SD card slot and up to 6.5 hours of battery life.
