Google Has a New £229 Chromebook, Which Is Completely Great

By Kyle Wagner on at

Google's having a rough day, but here's some good news: It has a new Chromebook, and this time it's £229. That's pretty amazing news.

Chromebooks are an overlooked part of Google's arsenal, but they really shouldn't be. If you don't need specific programs, and just need a computer to work on docs on and browse the web, Chromebooks are pretty much the best inexpensive laptops you can get.

Here are the full specs on the new one:

11.6'' (1366x768) display
0.8 inches thin - 2.5 lbs / 1.1 kg
Over 6.5 hours of battery 1
Samsung Exynos 5 Dual Processor
100 GB Google Drive Cloud Storage2 with Solid State Drive
Built-in dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n
VGA Camera
1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0
HDMI Port
Bluetooth 3.0™ Compatible

But the real spec you care about is that £229. Well, and "it works real good," too, if that can be a spec. [Google]
