Google on Monday took a pair of steps to revitalize Chrome OS. A new black Samsung Series 5 Chromebook is launching in the US The Wi-Fi only model is identical to the earlier version but drops down from $430 to $350, making it Samsung's first Chrome OS system under the $400 mark.
Google's Chromebooks may have been non-starters on their arrival in June, PC field reports alleged on Thursday. Between arrival and the end of July, Acer's Cromia 700 shipped just 5,000 units, Digitimes' tipsters claimed. Samsung's higher-priced Series 5 would have sold less than that.
Google marked its official step into desktop operating systems Wednesday by shipping the first Chromebooks. Both the Acer Cromia and Samsung Series 5 are on sale today both through Amazon (above) and Best Buy's online shop. France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK can get it as well but will have to turn to local retailers.
Google's Chrome OS partners made good on promises on Thursday after the two both started pre-orders for their respective Chromebooks. Both the Acer Cromia and the Samsung Series 5 are available to order early from Amazon and Best Buy less than a week ahead of their official June 15 ship dates. Tthe 3G and Wi-Fi versions are ready at the same time.
