Chromebox Samsung makes its debut alongside the new version of ChromeOS
Google continues its effort to have equipment that is 100% Internet-dependent, launching new chromebooks coming this time from the hands of Samsung. Also making its debut on Chromebox 3 Series, the first desktop OS to use Chrome as the default operating system.
The teams are on sale in the U.S. and Britain today, while other countries will come “in the coming weeks,” according to Google. The Series 5 Chromebooks cost from USD $ 449.99 while the party Chromebox USD $ 329.99.
The computers come with the newest version of Chrome OS , which is not so much like a browser, adding a taskbar, desktop and window management. Although the windows Chrome still windows can be administered in the same way they function in Windows or Mac, allowing move, resize, etc..
Applications are also open in windows Chrome – Google Docs, YouTube, etc, because they are on the web – but added options to open in full screen without border, which makes them feel like a native application even if they are . There are also some applications that work partially without the Internet, although not the strongest of ChromeOS.
Google Drive becomes a key feature in the operating system, allowing files to the web store to be available from anywhere using your account. Google plans to integrate more deeply into the next version of OS.
Even with the changes, Chrome OS remains heavily dependent on the Internet to function well, which will remain its special mark, and in some cases, your big problem.
