Google has announced several updates to the Chromebook products. The first update is for the software itself. We updated our Samsung Series 5 Chromebook this week and noticed only a few minor tweaks, nothing earthshaking.
The biggest change is the price drop. Both the Acer and Samsung models have had their list price cut to $299 and that should help sales. The original prices were $429 to $499 and they seemed to be over priced compared to competing Netbooks.
Personally I have developed a real love for these quick little Netbooks. If you haven't tried one yet you're in for a treat. They do what they do, which is surf the web, very well and that's exactly what I want them to do.
