Samsung Series 5 black

The Acer AC700 isn’t the only Chromebook getting a price drop. Samsung has introduced a new version of the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook which is available for $350.

Samsung is continuing to offer the Chromebook in white or silver for $430 and up, but the new model comes in “piano black.”

Like the other models, the laptop has a 12.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, Chrome OS operating system, a 6 hour battery, and the ability to start up in less than 10 seconds.

The laptop has a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N570 dual core processor,16GB solid state disk, 2 USB ports, a webcam and mic, and SDHC card slot.

In other words, aside from the color, it’s exactly the same as the Samsung Series 5 Chromebooks that went on sale this summer. It’s just a lot cheaper.

The new model includes WiFi, but not 3G wireless. You can pick one up from Amazon for $349.99.
