Google has just launched a new version of its Chromebook. It’s an 11.6-inch screened 17.5mm thick laptop manufactured by Samsung and will retail at £229 in the UK. You will be able to buy the new Chromebook at PC World and Currys as well as online from the Google Play store starting next week.

The specs are as follows:

  • 11.6” display at 1366 x 768 pixels
  • 17.5mm thin and 1.1 kg
  • Dual-core Samsung Exynos 5, A15 based ARM CPU, requiring no fan

Sundar Pichai from the Google Blog says:

“The new Chromebook is a great computer at any price, but it’s an incredible computer at $249. It’s one of the lightest laptops on the market. You can easily carry it around all day – its 2.5 pounds, a mere 0.8 inches thick, with more than 6 hours of battery life for the typical user. And with 100GB of free storage on Google Drive*, you can get to all of your stuff anytime, anywhere.”
