After last week’s official debut in the US, the Samsung Series 5 Chromebooks will now launch in the UK, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain and Italy.
Starting on June 24th, Europeans will be able to purchase the Wi-Fi model for €399 or the 3G version for €449. Amazon UK has had the laptops on pre-order since the beginning of June (priced at £399 and £349) and set for shipping on July 1st.
Dinesh Chand, Head of Mobile Computing Europe, Samsung, said: “The idea of the Chromebook is revolutionary – it’s about expanding people’s perception of computing. Many people today are living web-centric lifestyles – they’re online at home, on the move and at work. Rather than start with an existing notebook model and adapt it for the web, we’ve designed this from scratch to meet the needs of those people specifically.”
