If you can’t wait for a Chrome tablet, then you can put your hands on your very own Chromebook, now you have the chance. Acer and Samsung Chromebooks are up for pre-order on Amazon and Best Buy, with shipment due on June 15th. For now, the netbook is available only in the US, but other countries will soon follow.
There’s the Acer Cromia, which sells for $379.99 for the Wi-Fi version, and $449.99 for the 3G model, and the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook, which is available for $429.99 (WiFi only) and $499.99 (3G), in both silver and white color options.
Advertised as being “built and optimized for the web”, with a boot time of only 8 seconds, the Chromebook stores all your data “in the cloud”, so you can access it anytime, from any other Chromebook. It also updates itself automatically and is very well protected against malware and other possible threats. Check out Amazon and Best Buy if you want to get one of your own.
