Samsung Series 5 Chromebook now with Celeron
Samsung is proving that the Celeron brand still has some life in it.
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.
