How well are the Samsung Chromebooks selling? Good question. We’d like to be able to answer that one but it requires information, (still not released) from the manufacturers (Samsung, Acer), vendors (Amazon, Best Buy), and Google.
But judging by the Amazon ‘Bestsellers in Laptop Computers’ category, things look promising indeed.
I had a look at Amazon’s results on July 8th and found that in the #3 spot was the Samsung Series 5 3G Chromebook (Arctic White) selling for $499.
The Samsung Series 5 Wi-Fi Chromebook (Arctic White, $429.99) was in position #14 followed by the Titan Silver model at #15. The #20 slot was occupied by the Samsung Series 5 3G Chromebook (Titan Silver) followed closely by the Acer AC700-1099 Chromebook in position #22 with a $349.99 price tag.
Given the strong competition in laptop sales, we have to be encouraged that all four models remain in the Top 25. And the strong pre-order activity for the Acer model, with the considerably lower price, bodes well for future sales especially since it has yet to be released.
