"Chromebook is a new category of notebook computers and mobile devices that runs Google's cloud-based Chrome OS operating system. While they lack the processing power and higher-end features of standard laptops, Chromebooks are built primarily for Web surfing and are optimized for this purpose with the Google Chrome Web browser as well as near instant-on and instant-resume capabilities.

"The first retail Chromebooks have been produced by Samsung and Acer and feature both Wi-Fi and 3G capabilities, Intel Atom processors, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB SSDs for storage, and either a 11.6-inch (Acer) or 12.1-inch 1280x800 (Samsung) screen."
