We’ve known for a few months that second-generation laptop and desktop computers designed to run Google Chrome OS would use Intel Celeron chips instead of less powerful Atom processors. Now through a series of leaks we have more details.

TigerDirect appears to have accidentally sold at least one Celeron-powered Samsung Chromebox a few days early before removing the product listing. Now the folks at New Technik have uncovered a product page for a new Samsung “Edison” Chromebook at Newegg.

Samsung Edison Chromebook

Newegg has removed the product listing for a product called the Samsung Edison XE550C22-H01US. But Google has a cached version of the webpage… although it will likely disappear soon as well.

The Chromebook appears to be about the same size as Samsung’s first Chrome OS laptop, measuring 11.5″ x 8.5″ x 0.83″ and weighing just over 3 pounds. And like the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook, the new model has a 12.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display and 16GB solid state disk.

But while the Series 5 has 2GB of RAM and a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N570 dual core processor the new Chromebook has a 1.3 GHz Intel Celeron 867 dual core processor and 4GB of memory.

The Samsung Edison Chromebook also has a webcam, 2 USB 2.0 ports, a headphone/mic combo jack and stereo 2W speakers. It has 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet, and support for HSPA mobile broadband.

The Newegg listing shows a price of $549.99 for the Chromebook — but that appears to be for the 3G capable model. A WiFi-only version would likely be a little cheaper.
