The new Samsung Chromebook arrives in Australia – the lightweight computer for everyone.

Samsung Electronics Australia has announced the availability of the new Samsung Chromebook, a lightweight, portable and easy-to-use laptop built on the Google Chrome OS operating system. The new Samsung Chromebook has a fast wake up with a great battery life in a small and light form factor, it’s a notebook that you can easily carry around and use.

Compact, Sleek Design

The new Samsung Chromebook weighs less than 1.1kg and measures just 17.5mm thin. The full-sized keyboard and large touchpad allows for exceptional convenience and productivity. The 11.6-inch HD LED display has a matte finish, to help minimise nasty glare.

Outstanding Performance 

The Samsung Chromebook resumes from sleep mode and boots up quickly thanks to Samsung’s flash memory. The 16GB NAND memory allows the Chromebook to be responsive, thin, great battery life and also quiet due to having no moving parts in the device – just like a tablet or a phone. 

Simple, Secure and Ever-Improving User Experience

Google developed Chrome OS with three key factors in mind: speed, simplicity and security. With Chromebooks, you can get online in seconds, load web pages with incredible speed and access all of your favorite apps through the app launcher.

Automatic updates mean that Samsung Chromebook users can 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 almost 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 compatible device.

Pricing and Availability

The Samsung Chromebook is now in selected JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman stores with an RRP of $349.
