    “Chromebooks are built and optimized for the web, where you already spend most of your computing time. So you get a faster, simpler and more secure experience without all the headaches of ordinary computers.
    Order yours on June 15th ”

    “The Samsung model--the Samsung Series 5--will feature a 12.1-inch display, Intel Core 2 Duo N570 processor (1.66GHz), up to 8.5-hour battery life, full-sized keyboard and oversized multi-touch touchpad, and come in 2 colors. The Series 5 will also boast a thin 0.79-inch case. As for pricing, the WiFi model will be $429 and the version with built-in 3G will have a $499 price tag.”
    “A smaller Acer mode will also be debuting on June 15. The Acer Chromebook will feature an 11.6-inch screen, 6.5-hour battery life, and full-size keyboard starting at $349.”
    All the models are listed on amazon currently: http://www.amazon.com/gp/browse.html?node=2858603011&tag=tec06d-20

    None of the models will come with a hard drive in them, they all will have a 16GB SSD. The Samsung models have a 4 in 1 card reader as well for storage, the Acer models do not seem to have a build in card reader.

    The Samsung models have screen resolutions of 1280x800, the smaller Acer screens are 1366x768.
