Just yesterday we showed you Google’s and Samsung’s most recent product, the 2012 Samsung Chromebook that costs just $249.99 to own. For that price you get an ARM-based machine that will offer you access to Chrome OS and all of its goodies.
But what about those Chrome OS fans that want to use the device while on the go? The good news is that Samsung has build a 3G-enabled version of the 11.6-inch laptop that will sell for $329.99.
Unfortunately there’s some bad news to go with that too. The 3G version will be tied to Verizon’s 3G network for two years, and traffic is limited to 100MB per month. That's not going to be enough for a product that basically runs an OS based on an Internet browser.
When it comes to specs and features, the 3G model will pack the same internal components as its Wi-Fi-only brother. As a refresher, the tablet will offer a 11.6-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution, 1.7GHz Exynos 5 Dual processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of memory, Wi-Fi, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, HDMI, 3-in-1 card reader, VGA camera, 4,800mAh battery and Chrome OS under the hood.
Are you buying a Chromebook this year?
