Google unveils ultra-portable $250 Chromebook
Google laid out the next step of its Chromebook effort on Thursday by introducing a thin, light, Samsung-built laptop attached to a killer number — $250.
“It’s the best laptop that’s ever been designed at this price,” said Sundar Pichai, who oversees Google’s Chrome browser, OS and product teams. “We assume that you have a Windows machine in your home, or maybe a Mac. This isn’t built to replace those machines but instead be an additional computer.” The same way a tablet or smartphone are for many today.
