Some of the improvements included in this new model are 4GB of RAM, 500GB of internal storage, and a 5,000mAh battery. It retains the same 11.6-inch 1366×768 display and still runs on a 1.1GHz Intel Celeron processor. It also has a number of extra features — mostly standard stuff on laptops — like 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, HDMI-out, a VGA-port, a built-in webcam, Ethernet, and three USB ports.
As an added bonus, the C710-2605 Chromebook is bundled with 100GB of Google Drive storage that’s good for two years. It’s going to set buyers back $299 a piece, which can be viewed as either good value for money or straight-up highway robbery. You decide.
