We first saw Google’s prototype chromebook, the CR-48, a few months back. Google revealed all of the details on its official chromebook at the Google I/O developer conference in May. Samsung and Acer were named the first two manufacturing partners to develop commercially available Chromebooks.
Google tried to develop some more buzz by having a pre-sale of a few chromebooks through Gilt and by also creating an easter egg hunt type game in which consumers searched for clues to have a chance at winning an early Chromebook. Now, both models of the Chromebook are available for purchase at both BestBuy and Amazon.
The Acer model will cost $349.99, while the Samsung model is a bit more expensive at $429.99. The Chromebooks will also be available at different online retailers in the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands. Google’s Chrome OS will bring a cool new experience to the computer market. Chrome OS does not have a desktop and users complete everything through the web broswer.
