Google Chromebook

Google Chromebook laptops automatically back up files to the cloud with Google Drive.

Google Chromebooks are now available for purchase at Amazon.com. They won’t ship them to non-US locations but if you can’t wait to get one, use a package forwarding service.

If you have been looking to buy a Google Chromebook but for the unjustifiable price, this news might interest you a bit.

Acer has dropped the price of their Chromebook (Wi-Fi) to $299. The product listing on both Amazon.com and Acer.com still mention the old $349 price but once you add the Chromebook to your shopping cart, it uses the reduced price.

Amazon won’t ship these to India but there are strong hints that Google could officially launch Chromebooks in India in early 2012. Samsung had earlier dropped the price of all their Chromebook models by almost 10%.

Here’s a video tour of the Google Chrome OS that powers the Google Laptops.
