Electronic dealer Kogan has launched the Agora – the first Google Chromium OS powered laptop.
Ruslan Kogan, founder and CEO of the Australian retailer said: “We’ve been able to beat the rest of the world to bring the first commercially available laptop running Google’s Chromium OS.”
As you may know, the Chromium OS is an open source version of Google’s Chrome operating system and is still in development.
The International Business Times reports: “The low-powered laptop comes with 1GB of RAM and a 30GB SSD and is powered by an Intel Celeron M ULV processor, with a display of 11.6-inch (1366×768) and 3 USB ports. Battery life is of about 3.5 hours.”
“Samsung and Acer announced Chromebooks based on Chromium OS last month, but we’ve beaten them to market. Kogan is the most agile consumer electronics manufacturer in the world. We react faster to market trends than anyone else,” said Kogan in the IB Times report.
