Samsung Chromebook

Quite a few eyebrows were raised when Google initially announced their plans to bring up their own web based OS in the form of the “Chrome OS” but after a while things started to cool down and this idea never actually got implemented practically till now. Apparently Samsung Electronics have launched their version of  the Chromebook which runs wholly on the Chrome OS which for many would be an entirely new and unique experience to say the least.

The WiFi-only Samsung Chromebook briefly which went on sale today in the Google Play Store, was apparently met with great demand. After only a few short hours, the $250 netbook is now officially sold out, with a “notify me” option taking the place of the “add to cart” button.

One of Chromebook’s distinguishing features include its super fast boot times. Believe it or not but this little piece of wonder does indeed boot in just a meager 8 seconds and resume instantly. It loads your web pages and applications with lightning speed so whether you need to send an urgent email or catch up with the latest news online, all you need to do is turn on and go. As far as security is concerned, Chromebook runs the first consumer operating system designed from the ground to defend against the ongoing threat of malware and viruses. The device uses the basic principle of “defense in depth” to provide multiple layers of protection, including sandboxing, data encryption, and verified boot. Other features can be found in the specs section below:
