On this page you will find Chromebooks for sale. At the moment there are only two companies that make them Acer and Samsung. They were first released in June last year and Chromebooks are basically computers similar to netbooks but use the Google Chrome operating system, which is just a web browser. This means that very little data and software is actually stored on the computer instead it stored over the internet in a cloud type system.  This means you need to have continuous access to the internet to be able to use most of the programs and access data. There are advantages to this as most things are stored off the computer over the internet it makes things more secure and Google’s multi layered security architecture eliminates the need for anti-virus software.

From reviews from people who have purchased a Chromebooks it seems it takes a little while to get used to the operating system and doing everything over the internet. However once that initial period is over they seem to get on well with using it and the fact that it boots up and resumes from standby really quickly giving you nearly instant access to the internet is a positive.

The two options you have if you want to buy a Chromebook are an Acer AC700 Chromebook or Samsung Series 5 Chromebook. In the UK the Samsung Chromebook seems to be more widely available and you can get it Wi-Fi only or 3G enabled as well. Prices seem to range from £299 to £350 depending on whether you want 3G. They all come with the same specifications of Intel Atom Dual Core 1.66 GHz processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB SDD storage and 12.1 inch LED backlit screen. The Acer Chromebook model also has the same specifications; a connection etc. but comes with a slightly smaller screen at 11.6 inches. The Acer Chromebook is also slightly cheaper with prices starting at around £279. It is however harder to get hold of an Acer Chromebook with only a few retailers selling it. Both Acer and Samsung Chromebooks have a similar weight of 1.4kg for the Acer model and 1.5kg for the Samsung.
