Gilt Groupe First to Sell Google Chromebook

Posted by on June 2, 2011 at 2:12 pm

I’m sorry it’s too late, they’re all sold out. I got the email early yesterday morning, was busy all day and you wouldn’t have been able to get one unless you got the email so don’t blame me for late news. I wouldn’t have bought one anyway and not for $500, what are they smoking? Anyway Chromebooks officially go on sale June 15th but today Google put up the Samsung Series 5 on Gilt Man.

The Specs

  • 12.1″ (1280×800) Display
  • 3.26 lbs / 1.48 kg
  • Up to 8.5 hours of continuous usage*
  • Intel Dual-Core Processor
  • Built in dual-band Wi-Fi and World-mode 3G**
  • HD Webcam
  • 2 USB 2.0 ports
  • 4-in-1 memory card slot
  • Mini-VGA port
  • Fullsize Chrome keyboard
  • Oversized, fully-clickable trackpad

Anything special? Well Google said you get a super special sleeve (pictured) but that doesn’t really justify $500. Well what do I know I sold my Cr-48 because I never used it…
