|The Samsung Model|
Day 2 of the Google I/O Developer Conference and we receive the news and plans for Google Chrome on netbooks.
We were not disappointed in day number 2.
There will be 2 Chromebooks, one from Acer, the other from Samsung.
They have come up with a way for students and businesses to purchase the netbooks on a monthly fee basis. The program called Chromebooks for Businesses and Education allows businesses and educational institutes to pay Google a monthly fee in exchange for a supported, updated Chromebook. Businesses will pay a monthly fee of $28, while educational institutes will pay a $20 fee. Businesses and the educational institutes will order their Chromebooks directly from Google at the following link address beginning June 15, 2011.
All Chromebooks will have some of the following basic features including instant booting, all day battery lives, and most importantly built in security. They are not the CR-48’s, but closely resemble them. The Samsung model has a 12 inch display, 8.5 hours of battery life, dual-core Atom processor, HD webcam, 4 in 1 card reader, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and mini VGA. It will be sold in WiFi and 3G models starting at $499. The Acer model 11.6 HD display, 6 hours of battery life, a dual-core Atom processor, 2 USB 2.0 ports and a full HDMI port instead of VGA unlike the Samsung. It will also have WiFi and 3G models starting at $349. These Chromebooks will be available on June 15th, 2011.
