Samsung is making a Chrome OS Netbook

Phil Newton, of Samsung, recently stated that a 10-inch Chrome OS netbook is on its way, later this year.

Hardware:

  • 64GB of flash storage
  • 12 hour battery life
  • 3G
  • Wi-Fi
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 1.5 GHz Snapdragon Processor

You’re probably thinking, these specs are awful for a computer. For a Windows netbook, yes they are, but for Chrome OS the specs will work fine. Chrome OS is for speed. It is an OS that runs in a browser that allows you to connect with the cloud. Since it is a browser the specs listed above, will be really fast, for a cheap price. Many people complain it doesn’t have a lot of the functionality like Windows or Macintosh does. Personally, I don’t think this OS is meant to be your main OS. It is meant for¬†portability¬†and speed on the go.

The Netbook is on its way next year.
