The laptop measures 11.6″ x 8.6″ x 0.8″ and weighs 3.26 pounds (This may not be accurate, as Google says the Acer Chromebook weighs 2.95 pounds). It’s expected to sell for $349 and up.
The Samsung Series 5 Chromebook will run $429.99 and up. The base model features a 12.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, 1MP camera, 16GB SSD, and Intel Atom N570 processor.
The Acer notebook will be available in black, while there will be black, white and silver versions of the Samsung Chromebook.
Both companies will also offer 3G capable models which connected to Verizon’s wireless network in the US for up to 100MB of free data. You’ll have to sign up for a subscription if you want more data.
Amazon has already set up a Chromebook Store where you can find details on all available (or soon-to-be-available) models, as well as videos exploring the features that make Chromebooks stand out from ordinary laptops.
