Google announced Chromebooks and they became available on June 15 in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Netherlands, Italy and Spain. Chromebooks which come in Acer and Samsung models, are a barebones computer that runs Google Chrome OS. Chromebooks are built and optimized for the web, so you get a faster, simpler and more secure experience without all the headaches of ordinary computers. Chromebooks boot in 8 seconds and with long battery life, they can work an entire day on a single charge.
Chromebooks allow users access to documents, movies, photos, music, and apps stored in secure Google servers accessible vis Google’s Cloud technology from any place in the world, provided you have Chrome OS and an internet connection.
The main mission for Chromebook is to offer an alternative to businesses and schools that might otherwise purchase PCs. The main issue for many is the price: $499 for the 3G Series 5 is frequently cited as too high. Chromebooks are more expensive than Windows-based netbooks, and in a market dominated by $500 iPads, it remains to be seen what consumer demand for the comparably priced but lesser-equipped Chromebook will be.
