Kogan Agora is world’s first Google Chromium OS laptop, ships next week and the 11.6-inch computer has a spec list rivaling the midrange notebooks of 2006, including a 1.3 GHz Celeron processor, 1GB of RAM and a 30GB SSD. The Kogan Agora Chromium Laptop helps you go truly enjoy using your computer and from now your computing is effortless, fast and simple………..
Kogan released the world’s first laptop powered by Google’s Chromium OS, available for sale and ready to be dispatched. The Kogan Agora Laptop powered by Chromium OS goes on sale today for £269 in the United Kingdom and $349 in Australia and ships direct to customers next week. Kogan‘s Chromium OS Laptop is based on the popular Agora hardware, adds a Solid State Drive, lets users operate entirely in the cloud, and boots in 4.5 seconds. Ruslan Kogan said the world-first product was testament to Kogan’s efficiency and agility. “We’ve been able to beat the rest of the world to bring the first commercially available laptop running Google’s Chromium OS. Google’s Chromium OS is an open source project, making it a constant work in progress. This means the system will improve over time and new features and improvements will keep getting introduced by the open source community. While Chromium is still in its early stages, we know the operating system is innovative technology which represents the future of computing. It may take some getting used to for some to operate entirely in the cloud, but the massive benefits for the end user are driving acceptance of entirely web-based services.”
“What we’ve found from talking to our customers is that many of them are already using cloud services without even realising it. They’re uploading photos to services like Flickr, storing all their contacts in Gmail, and even hosting files on DropBox.” Loading up a laptop with Google’s open source software can be strange at first. However it’s clear that everyone from casual users to pros are embracing cloud services with all their personal computing needs. Samsung and Acer announced Chromebooks based on Chromium OS last month, but we’ve beaten them to market. Kogan is the most agile consumer electronics manufacturer in the world. “The first Kogan Agora Laptops powered by Google’s Chromium OS will be in customer’s hands next week and we’re very excited. Our business has already been operating entirely in the cloud for years!” Kogan said.
