+ - Hands On With Samsung Series 5 Chromebook

Submitted by adeelarshad82
adeelarshad82 (1482093) writes "Amongst some of the coolest things revealed at Google I/O, Samsung unveiled one of the first Chrome OS notebooks called the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook. Priced at at $429 for the 3G version and $499 for the Wi-Fi/3G option, the 1280 x 800 display notebook is said to carry dual-core Atom N570 and a battery that supports 8.5 hours of active use. Unlike the Cr-48, the 480p and even 720p video plays back decently on the 1280 x 800 display, thanks in part to improvements in Flash and the faster chip. Also unlike the Cr-48, the touchpad doesn't require jamming it down to make it work. While no official confirmations were made about what's inside the Series 5; there's clearly a GPU and a solid-state disc (SSD). The notebook also includes 802.11b/g/n which is complemented by a two-year 3G subscription to Verizon with 100 MB/s per month for free."
