Google has just introduced two new sub-$250 Chromebooks, which are now available for purchase online in India. Manufactured by Nexian and Xolo, these Chromebooks will offer consumers an inexpensive alternative to other low-cost laptops available in the country.
Both new devices feature essentially the same specifications, with an 11.6-inch TFT display with a resolution of 1366 x 768, a 1.8GHz quad-core Cortex-A17 processor, a Mali-T764 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, a 4200mAh battery and a 1MP 720p built-in webcam. Of course, both Chromebooks also have expandable memory and come with 100GB of Google Drive storage space for two years.
The Nexian Chromebook will normally retail for ₹13,499 ($212), though it’s currently available on Amazon for the sale price of ₹12,999. The Xolo Chromebook is now available through Snapdeal for just ₹12,999, as well.
Google also explained that more budget-friendly Chromebooks will be available in India sometime soon from manufacturers such as Asus, Samsung and a number of other Indian hardware makers.
