Innovatively designed to go as long as you can, the Samsung Chromebook Series 5 lets you spend the whole day surfing, streaming, and working on the web on just one charge. With less than 10-second booting and an amazing 8.5 hours of battery life, the light and sleek Chromebook Series 5 gives you the ultimate web experience that you won't find on any other laptop.
The Chrome-based operating system features a streamlined user interface, making it easier for you to navigate the web--where you already spend most of your computing time. All your apps, documents, and settings are stored safely in the cloud. Every Chrome notebook runs millions of web apps, from games to spreadsheets to photo editors. And the Samsung Chromebook uses advanced technology to help prevent malware and viruses from accessing your data without you ever having to lift a finger.
This Samsung Chromebook in White features a 12.1-inch LED-backlit display with an anti-reflective screen. It's powered by a next-generation, dual-core Intel processor, which combines performance and energy efficiency to provide new levels of support for applications like games, as well as Adobe Flash technology for improved access to multimedia sites such as YouTube and BBC iPlayer. Weighing in at 3.3 pounds, the ultra compact design provides maximum portability without compromising on functionality and optimal performance
You'll be able to connect to ultra-fast Wireless-N networks in your home or office, and it includes two USB ports, a 4-in-1 memory card reader, buttonless touchpad with multi-gesture support, and a 1-megapixel webcam for video chats and snapping pics for social networking sites.
The Samsung Chromebook gets you on the web as quickly as possible. It boots in less than 10 seconds and resumes instantly from sleep. Open the lid, and you're back on the web so you don't miss a beat. And Chromebooks are designed to get faster over time as updates are released.
Every Chromebook runs millions of web apps, from games to spreadsheets to photo editors. Thanks to the power of HTML5, many apps keep working even in those rare moments when you're not connected. To try the latest apps, visit the Chrome Web Store or just type in a URL. You can easily create shortcuts on your new tab page to launch your favourite web applications, so that you can enhance your online experience. No CDs required.
Chromebooks keep your apps, documents, favourites and settings safely in the cloud. That means you can login to a friend's Chromebook and access your profile without disturbing theirs. Or, if you lose or break your Chromebook you have nothing to worry about. Just get another and login, you will be back up and running in minutes like nothing happened.
Your Chromebook gets better and better over time, unlike a traditional PC. When you turn it on, it updates itself. Automatically. All of your apps stay up-to-date, and you get the latest and greatest version of the operating system without having to think about it. Annoying update prompts not included.
Chromebooks are easy to share with family and friends. They can log in to experience all of their own Chrome settings, apps and extensions, or use a Guest session to browse privately. Either way, no one else using your Chromebook will have access to your email and personal data.
Chromebooks run the first operating system designed from the ground up to defend against the ongoing threat of malware and viruses. They employ the principle of "defence in depth" to provide multiple layers of protection, including sandboxing, data encryption, and verified boot. Websites load quickly and smoothly and all your apps, documents, and settings are stored safely in the cloud.
The anti-reflective 12.1-inch LED display has a mirror effect and produces the sharpest images with 300-nlt brightness, which is up to 40 percent brighter than normal laptops. Get outstanding picture quality and text readability, even when you're outdoors. Enjoy the web longer without straining your eyes.
It's easy to get connected to the Web with built-in Wi-Fi, which is compatible with ultra-fast Wireless-N networks (802.11n) as well as backward compatible with older networks (802.11b/g). As your Chromebook boots up, it quickly connects to your favourite wireless network so you're on the web right from the start.
Make the most of the web by using a keyboard that's designed for it. Your Chromebook comes equipped with a dedicated search key, a new row of web-enabled keys, and a comfortable, full-size layout that doesn't cramp your fingers so you can get more done and make fewer errors.
Samsung's intelligent battery charging technology enables the battery to keep 80 percent of its original capacity for up to 1,000 recharges--more than 3x longer than a typical battery. This makes our batteries more economical and environmentally friendly since fewer batteries need to be replaced over the lifecycle.
