Samsung`s new Chromebook

The Samsung Chromebook (unlike its predecessors, it has no series number) will have a price tag of £229 when it goes on sale in the UK on 22 October. PC World and Currys will carry it in 30 high-street stores, and it can be purchased online from PC World, Amazon UK and Google Play. The online sellers have begun taking pre-orders already.The new Chrome OS laptop is priced lower than its predecessors: the Samsung Chromebook 550 is priced by Google at £379, while the Samsung Series 5 is £299, though both can be bought for less online.
Compared with these earlier models, the Samsung Chromebook is lighter and smaller. It has an 11.6-inch screen, is 0.8 inches thick and weighs 1.1kg
It has also swapped out the previous Intel Celeron chip for a Samsung Exynos 5 Dual, which is based on ARM's low-power dual-core A15 Cortex. It promises to boot up in seven seconds and to provide 6.5 hours of battery life. In addition, it comes with 2GB RAM, 16GB of built-in flash storage, and dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity as standard.
