We first told you about the new Samsung Chromebook a couple of days ago, and then yesterday we had the more information on the price and specs for the US. Now today we have the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook UK price and release date.
Patrick Goss over at TechRadar is reporting in an article that the new laptop will be arriving in the UK on June 24th. If you want the Wi-Fi only model it will cost you £349, and by adding 3G it will cost you £399. There does seem to be some surprising difference in pricing compared to the US though.
In the US as we reported yesterday the Wi-Fi only model is priced at $429, but with today’s exchange rates that’s almost £100 difference. The Wi-Fi and 3G version converts to around £305 at today’s exchange rate.
This will anger many consumers who want to purchase the device, but has a big mark up compared to the US. It will be available online at Amazon and PCWorld. The device should also be available in brick and mortar stores as well when it is released.
Will you be getting the new Google Chromebook?
