Introducing the New SAMSUNG Chromebook
Posted: 19-Oct-2012 [Source: Samsung]

[Samsung announces the second-generation Chromebook built on Google Chrome OS. It weighs in at less than 2.5 pounds and offers a full-sized keyboard along with an 11.6" screen and built-in webcam. MSRP $249.99 and will be available beginning October 22 at various retail outlets and on-line.]

Ridgefield Park, NJ -- Samsung Electronics America, Inc. announced the new Samsung Chromebook, its latest lightweight, portable and easy-to-use laptop built on Google Chrome OS™. The new Samsung Chromebook is fast – it boots up in less than 10 seconds, resumes near instantly and has a long battery life. The form factor makes it one of the lightest laptops on the market, making it an ideal choice for people on the go, families using it around the house and students at school.

“With our commitment to evolving the Chromebook, we will continue our leadership in this exciting category. We’ve closely collaborated with Google to further enhance the experience by adding Samsung’s powerful computing components, thinner design and a beautiful HD screen,” said Todd Bouman, vice president of product marketing at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “There is a lot of opportunity for the Chromebook in areas like education, where customers require solutions that are reliable, easy to manage, and offer a better total cost of ownership than traditional notebook PCs. Our new Chromebook will also resonate with consumers with similar needs – giving them everything they need to stay connected with no-nonsense usability, affordability and unrivaled quality.”

“It’s been exciting to see many people using Chromebooks as the perfect additional computer for their home,” said Caesar Sengupta, Director of Product Management, Chrome OS. “We believe computers need to be easy to use and more affordable so everyone can have access to them. So together with Samsung, we’re excited to introduce the new Chromebook for $249, the computer for everyone.”

Compact, Sleek Design

The new Samsung Chromebook features Samsung’s renowned, sleek design identity. It weighs less than 2.5 pounds and measures less than an inch thick, making it effortless to carry anywhere. The full-sized keyboard results in maximum convenience and productivity, and the 11.6-inch screen is ideal for all needs, from viewing photos and work documents to chatting face-to-face using the built-in webcam.

Performance without Compromises

The Samsung Chromebook resumes from sleep mode in just one second and boots up in under 10 seconds, enabling users to jump into work or play nearly instantly and, unlike traditional computers, doesn’t slow down over time. With a 16 GB*** SSD and 2GB of RAM, users have all the power they need for social networking, homework, watching videos, looking at photos and more. A hardware-accelerated user interface results in smoother scrolling on the trackpad, making activities like browsing the web or playing games even more enjoyable. Battery life of more than six hours** allows for extended computing without needing to find a power source.

Simple, Secure and Ever-Improving User Experience

Google developed Chrome OS with three key factors in mind: speed, simplicity and security, and has improved on these factors since the launch of the first Chromebook in 2011. With Chromebooks, you can get online in seconds, load web pages with incredible speed and access all of your favorite apps in one click through the app launcher.

Automatic updates mean that Samsung Chromebook users always receive the latest functionality, without any hassle. Security features are also built-in and updated to defend against the ongoing threat of malware and viruses, reducing the need for users to install anti-virus software.

Built-in cloud storage with Google Drive enables Chromebook users to access their files securely from anywhere, and sync technology backs up all of your preferences, bookmarks and apps, so you can easily access them from a Chrome browser on another device.

The Samsung Chromebook is now available for pre-order. It will be available at Best Buy, Amazon, Staples, Tiger.com and Newegg.com beginning October 22 for an MSRP of $249.99.
