Acer & Samsung come with Chrome OS laptops!
So google came with it's own operating system called Chrome OS and their own laptop, the chromebook Cr48. It's mainly designed for internet usage.. But now Acer and Samsung have come with their own Chrome OS based laptops. They announced this during the Google I/O 2011 event.
Both the Acer and Samsung laptops only need 10 seconds to boot! They're also equipped with long-lasting batteries and options for 3G connectivity.
The Samsung series-5 laptop is with 12.1 inch SuperBright display a little bit bigger and it has a battery that lasts 8 hours. It also feautures dual-band Wi-Fi and a Core 2 Duo N570 1.66GHz processor. The prices are
$429(only Wi-Fi) and $499(3G).
So whould you buy one of these or would you rather go for Google's Cr48? Btw, I'm installing Chrome OS after this. If you too want to try Chrome OS out, here is a tutorial with a download link:
