Celeron powered Samsung Series 5 Chromium Netbook

While a slew of laptop companies released Celeron powered Windows notebooks last year, none released a Celeron powered Chromium netbook – until now. Samsung has released an Intel Celeron based Series 5 Chromebook. This new budget processor powered netbook replaces the Atom N570 dual core chip that was used in the previous model.

Low powered Celeron processors typically have TDP of around 17 watts, which is almost triple of Atom CPUs. However, I am sure that Samsung must have done a lot of customizations to make sure battery life runtimes are not affected much. Other than the change in processor, it now features a new matte lid instead of glossy one as found in the old model.

There are no other changes. It still has the 12.1 inch display, 16GB flash storage, 802.11n Wi-Fi, optional 3G and would sell for 400 dollars for the Wi-Fi only version and 450 dollars for the 3G verison. Expect it to become available in Q2 2012.
