Gilt gets early Samsung Series 5 Chromebook deal

Gilt claimed an unusual technology edge Wednesday by starting sales for Chromebooks. As of noon, the luxury offer house has been giving early adopters access to the Samsung Series 5. Most details are unknown, including whether or not it's the 3G or Wi-Fi version, but it will ship with a limited-run Rickshaw sleeve case.

The system is the larger, more advanced Chrome OS notebook of the two shipping out and has a 12-inch screen, a dual-core 1.66GHz Atom N570, and an 8.5-hour battery. Both use stock software and are officially unlockable to let owners load up their own code if they like.

A Series 5 normally costs $430 for Wi-Fi or $500 for one that adds 3G as well. Normal buyers can get the Series 5 and the smaller, $350 Acer model through online sales on June 15.
