Samsung's Chromebook Series 3 came out in late 2012. Two versions are available: a Wi-Fi-only model ($249) and one that adds 3G connectivity ($329). Samsung's Chromebook gets up to seven hours of battery life; has a 14-inch, 1366 x 768 display; weighs 2.42 pounds; and includes an HDMI port, one USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports. It's compatible with Bluetooth 3.0, not the newer, low-power 4.0.
PCWorld gave Samsung's Chromebook 3.5 stars (out of 5). Benchmarks compared it favorably to tablets such as the Google Nexus 10 (which, like Samsung's Chromebook, uses a dual-core ARM processor and lacks a graphics card). The Chromebook's silvery design "looks a lot like the 11-inch Apple MacBook Air," notes reviewer Sarah Jacobsson Purewal.
