You Can Do Everything on the Web With New Google Chromebooks; Will You?

“You Can Do Everything on the Web.”

That’s one of the slogans you’ll find inside the video announcing the public, mainstream launch of Google’s Chromebooks–laptops that run Chrome instead of a normal operating system.

And, with 160 million web users already surfing the web via Google’s Chrome browser, the search giant is hoping there’ll be a ready-made market for laptops that require no long start-up times, no software loading, no updates, and no risk of losing all your data if you throw your laptop in a river (Google’s example, not mine!)

The first Chromebooks will be manufactured by Acer and Samsung and don’t look too bad at all!

Want to get your hands on a laptop that runs all day, is virus-proof, and starts at around $350? Google Chromebooks will be available online June 15 in the US, UK, France, Germany, Netherlands, Italy and Spain. More countries will follow in the coming months. In the US, Chromebooks will be available from Amazon and Best Buy and internationally from leading retailers.

Who’s getting one?
