Samsung is proving that the Celeron brand still has some life in it.

The budget Series 5 Chromebook netbook shown at CES this year is currently scheduled to relaunch with a Celeron CPU. Previous Series 5 Chromebooks had been shipping with Atom N570 CPUs.

While the Celeron family has been known to be made of low-end processors, they are still generally more powerful than Atom CPUs but with comparatively higher power demands. But, according to Netbook News, Samsung has reassured users that the Celeron-powered notebook will have comparable battery life to its previous Atom-powered models, all the while providing up to three times the performance.

The 12.1-inch Series 5 Chromebook will be launching sometime in the second quarter of this year. It will include a matte display, optional 3G connectivity and a 16GB SSD, starting for $399. As expected, data can be stored on Google’s Cloud to make up for the small local solid-state drive.
