Samsung Chromebook: Presented Minimal Notebook
Google has introduced the Samsung Chromebook the latest version of a minimal notebook for in-house operating system Chrome OS. With a purchase price of $ 250, it is much cheaper than the alternatives Chromebook goes on sale. Heat is a killer of all Fujitsu fpcbp136 batteries and high temperatures cannot always be avoided.
However, the hardware of the mobile computer for the prize was also heavily customized: The 11.6-inch display has 1366 x 768 pixels, 16 GB main memory and 2 GB available for data ready, WLAN and Bluetooth are used to connect to the Internet and other devices. An SD card slot allows buyers extend the main memory. Google donated buyers of the new Chromebook additional 100 GB of cloud storage in Google Drive. In addition, there's two USB ports (1x USB 3.0) and an HDMI port. As a guideline, each 8°C (15°F) rise in temperature cuts the life of a sealed lead acid fpcbp196ap battery in half.
The first Chromebook comes with ARM processor from Samsung and based on Samsung's Exynos 5250 with two Cortex-A15 cores are clocked at 1.7 GHz. With a 11.6-inch display (1,366 x 768 pixels) and 6.5 hours of battery life, the Series 3 Chromebook brings only around 1.08 kilos. The same fujitsu lifebook t4220 battery would desist after 2½ years if kept at a constant desert temperature of 41°C (106°F).
Samsung equips the device with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB eMMC memory, which is supplemented with 100 GB of free cloud storage. The device supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n, radioed to say both in the 2.4 and 5 GHz.But expects the Chromebook is not a conventional x86 CPU, but uses a Exynos dual 5 - a Samsung processor, which was at clock speeds up to 1.7 GHz actually intended only for use in smartphones and tablets. Once the Fujitsu fpcbp155 battery is damaged by heat, the capacity cannot be restored.
While Google itself the Chromebook with the phrase "For everyone." advertises, we would not agree really: Chrome OS is sorely limited in its functions. If you want to take a look: We'll show you how you can easily try out the Google OS. (Mas) The life of a battery also depends on the activity and is shortened if the fujitsu lifebook t5010 battery is stressed with frequent discharge.
However, the new Chromebook will be resold in the U.S. and in the UK. When and if Google, the new devices in this country offers is unclear. In the U.S., the Samsung Chromebook Series is sold 3 for $ 249, in the UK it can be ordered for 229 pounds
