The new Chromebook from Samsung will feature a 32GB or 64GB of SSD storage for the OS and will have a slightly better battery with over 7 hours of battery life (1 hour longer then the previous Samsung Chromebook). The price is expected to be between $250 and $300. I don’t think we should get our hopes up for an announcement at CES 2014, since Samsung previously mentioned
“We are planning to unveil no laptops during the CES 2014 period”
Chromebooks have been a huge success this Christmas holidays beating Mac Book Pro’s, Mac Book Airs, Windows tablet and Android tablets, chromebooks accounted for 9.6% of the combined laptop and tablet markets from January-November 2013 data from NPD shows. The cheap laptops powered by Google’s Cloud based operation system are a success due to their low prices and increasing storage capabilities.
