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.”
