A few days ago, Google intro'd a new entry to the ChromeOS family: the 11.6", Exynos 5-powered Samsung Chromebook. At $250, this dual-core ultraportable isn't going to break the bank, and for users who don't normally venture outside of the web browser, it's a pretty ideal solution. And starting today, you can grab this little guy directly from Google Play.

Just to avoid confusion, this does not run Android. It runs ChromeOS.


This new Chromebook is the first non-Android device to make its way into Play Store, which is clearly going to be Google's new storefront for future hardware sold directly by the company.

The Samsung Chromebook features an 11.6" 1366x768 display, dual-core Exynos 5 processor, 2GB RAM, a 16GB SSD, HDMI out, 1x USB 2.0 port, 1x USB 3.0 port, an SD card reader, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and "up to" 6.5 hours worth of battery.
