Singapore, 30 May 2013 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced its latest lightweight, portable and easy-to-use laptop built on Google Chrome OS™. The new Samsung Chromebook is fast – it boots up in less than 10 seconds, resumes near instantly and has a long battery life. The form factor makes it one of the lightest laptops on the market, making it an ideal choice for people on the go, families using it around the house and students at school.
Compact, Sleek Design
The new Samsung Chromebook features Samsung’s renowned, sleek design identity. It weighs in at 1.1kg and measures less than an inch thick, making it effortless to carry anywhere. The full-sized keyboard results in maximum convenience and productivity, and the 11.6-inch screen is ideal for all needs, from viewing photos and work documents to chatting face-to-face using the built-in webcam.
Performance without Compromises
The Samsung Chromebook resumes from sleep mode in just one second and boots up in under 10 seconds, enabling users to jump into work or play nearly instantly and, unlike traditional computers, doesn’t slow down over time. With a 16GB*** eMMC and 2GB of RAM, users have all the power they need for social networking, homework, watching videos, looking at photos and more. A hardware-accelerated user interface results in smoother scrolling on the trackpad, making activities like browsing the web or playing games even more enjoyable. Battery life of more than six hours** allows for extended computing without needing to find a power source.
Simple, Secure and Ever-Improving User Experience
Google developed Chrome OS with three key factors in mind: speed, simplicity and security, and has improved on these factors since the launch of the first Chromebook in 2011. With Chromebooks, you can get online in seconds, load web pages with incredible speed and access all of your favourite apps in one click through the app launcher.
Automatic updates mean that Samsung Chromebook users always receive the latest functionality, without any hassle. Security features are also built-in and updated to defend against the ongoing threat of malware and viruses, reducing the need for users to install anti-virus software.
Built-in cloud storage with Google Drive enables Chromebook users to access their files securely from anywhere, and sync technology backs up all of your preferences, bookmarks and apps, so you can easily access them from a Chrome browser on another device.
