Google Chromebooks werden endlich bei Best Buy und Amazon zum Verkauf angeboten

Google Chromebooks werden ab dem 15. Juni bei Best Buy und Amazon zum Verkauf angeboten. Derzeit nur in den USA vorbestellbar.

 

Google tweeted:
“Nothing but the web: Samsung & Acer #Chromebooks now available for pre-order from @Amazon and @BestBuy in the US http://t.co/LpY0jWU“

Since 2009 when the slimmed-down laptops were first announced, many have waited for this day. Google tempted testers and developers with the Cr-48 prototype notebook, but since bowed out to more powerful hardware provided by Acer and Samsung.

There are half a dozen new Chromebooks available, and prices range from $379.99 through to $499.99.

Whether these devices are truly compatible with student — at seemingly such a steep price for little desire from either the hardware specifications or the ‘nothing but the web’ appeal, only time will tell.

Students will be able to buy a Chromebook for $20 per month. It is relatively a sweet deal for those in education; roughly equating to $180 throughout the academic year.

Chromebooks will be launching in six European countries including the United Kingdom, “pricing has not been announced yet” for these regions. The $20 a month price also includes a web console, updates, warranty and replacements, as well as support for central administrators.

Though Chrome OS will be largely cloud-dependent, the devices will have 3G access and offline functionality. ‘Offline mode’ allows users to work on Docs, Gmail and Calendar and other applications while working whilst disconnected from the web.
