Samsung Chromebook is one of the best sellers on Amazon in the US and UK. The sleek form factor coupled with a low price tag is a good option for customers who spend a lot of time browsing the web.

The Samsung Chromebook runs Google’s Chrome OS, rather than Windows or Linux; much like other Chromebook siblings. It features an 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels. It weighs 1.1 kilogram and measures 17.5mm thin.

The Samsung Chromebook offers up to 6.5 hours of battery life (active use). It is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos 5 Dual processor alongside 2GB of RAM.

The Samsung Chromebook packs 16GB of SSD (Solid State Drive) space and in addition comes with 100GB of Google Drive Cloud storage, which is valid for 2 years, starting on the date the Drive offer is redeemed.

Other features include a built-in dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, 3G modem (which is optional), VGA webcam, one USB port and one micro-USB port, HDMI port and Bluetooth 3.0 compatible.

Much like other Chromebooks, it also includes preloaded Google products like Search, Gmail, YouTube, and Hangouts. Chrome OS supports ZIP, TXT, PDF, HTML, MP4, M4V, M4A, MP3, OGV, OGM, OGG, OGA, WEBM, WAV, and most image file types.

External drives can be read as well, with Ext2, Ext3, Ext4, FAT, UDF, HFS Plus, ISO9660 (read only), and NTFS file formats supported.

The Chromebook is recently launched in India. Google also announced the launch of the Acer C720 Chromebook and HP Chromebook 14 in India few months back.
