Google Chromebook ordering starts 15th June
Google has announced the first Chromebooks from partners Samsung and Acer. These are not typical notebooks. The company says with a Chromebook you wonít wait minutes for your computer to boot and browser to start. Youíll be reading your email in seconds.

Thanks to automatic updates the software on your Chromebook will get faster over time. Apps, games, photos, music, movies and documents will be accessible wherever you are and you won't need to worry about losing your computer or forgetting to back up files.

Chromebooks will last a day of use on a single charge, so you donít need to carry a power cord everywhere. And with optional 3G, just like your phone, youíll have the web when you need it.

Chromebooks have many layers of security built in so there is no anti-virus software to buy and maintain. Even more importantly, you won't spend hours fighting your computer to set it up and keep it up to date.

At the core of each Chromebook is the Chrome web browser. The web has millions of applications and billions of users. Trying a new application or sharing it with friends is as easy as clicking a link. A world of information can be searched instantly and developers can embed and mash-up applications to create new products and services. The web is on just about every computing device made, from phones to TVs, and has the broadest reach of any platform. With HTML5 and other open standards, web applications will soon be able to do anything traditional applications can do, and more.

Chromebooks will be available online June 15 in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Netherlands, Italy and Spain. More countries will follow in the coming months. In the U.S., Chromebooks will be available from Amazon and Best Buy and internationally from leading retailers.
