Google Unveils $249 Samsung Exynos 5 (Cortex A15) Chromebook

Back in April, we already knew Google was working on a Chromebook codenamed ‘Daisy’ based on the latest Samsung Exynos 5 Dual Cortex A15 processor, and finally, Google officially announced their first ARM based Chromebook yesterday.

The specifications of the new Chromebook are as follows:

  • SoC – Samsung Exynos 5 Dual Core Cortex A15 Processor @ 1.7 GHz with Mali T-604 GPU
  • System Memory – 2 GB DDR3L SDRAM
  • Storage:
    • 16 GB SSD
    • SD Card slot
    • 100 GB Google Drive Cloud Storage (Free for 2 years)
  • Display – 11.6″ LED panel (1366×768)
  • Video Out – HDMI
  • Connectivity
    • Dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n
    • Bluetooth 3.0 compatible (But Bluetooth does not seem to be present in the device)
  • USB – 1x USB 3.0 and 1x USB 2.0 host ports
  • Camera – Front VGA camera
  • Battery – 6.5 hours typical use (No capacity info)
  • Weight – 1.1 kg

There’s no Ethernet contrary to what we may have been led to believe earlier this year. This netbook is completely silent, and it does not have any moving part, not even a cooling fan.

The new Chromebook (which strangely does not have a proper name yet, but is sold as model number: XE303C12)  can be pre-ordered in the US and the UK for respectively $249 and 229 GBP.  Further details and links to online shops can be found on Google website.
