SAMSUNG AND GOOGLE INTRODUCE THE WORLD’S FIRST CHROMEBOOK –
SAMSUNG SERIES 5

Samsung creates another industry-first device.

SAN FRANCISCO — May 11, 2011- Samsung Electronics America Inc., a
subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, today announced its stylish Series 5
Chromebook, the world’s first Chromebook built on the principles of speed, simplicity
and security.

“With the creation of the Series 5 we are again pushing the boundaries of innovation
by introducing an entirely new product category to the notebook market,” said Scott
Ledterman, director of mobile PC marketing at Samsung Enterprise Business
Division. “This partnership has allowed us to combine Samsung’s design and
engineering expertise with Google’s simple, secure software to provide consumers
with a revolutionary notebook to fit today’s web-centric lifestyle.”

"Samsung's reputation for innovative design and hardware development
makes it a great partner to introduce one of the first Chromebooks," said
Caesar Sengupta, Director of Product Management, Google. "We look forward
to bringing a much better computing experience built around the speed,
simplicity and security of Chrome."

Elegant Design, Power Performance
With its elegant shape, slim 0.79-inch body and simple Titan Silver or White finish,
the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook embodies fashion and function.

The 12.1-inch Super Bright display is both anti-reflective and anti-glare for a
consistently vibrant visual experience across a variety of light conditions, from
outdoors to dimly lit environments. The Series 5 display’s 300nit brightness brings all
forms of media alive in vibrant color.

Today mobility is a deciding factor for consumers. The Series 5 weighs 3.3 lbs. and
has a battery life of up to 8.5 hours, including five hours of video play for all-day use
without the need to recharge. The Series 5 battery has a lifespan up to 1,000 cycles,
three times longer than conventional batteries, which reduces the need for
replacements. *

The Samsung Series 5 packs power with an Intel® Dual-core processor, giving you
the versatility and performance you need for a one-of-a-kind web experience.

Simple, Secure User Experience
Google developed the Chrome operating system with three key factors in mind:
speed, simplicity and security. The average out-of-the-box laptop starts up in 45
seconds. By contrast, the Series 5 starts up in less than ten seconds. When waking
from sleep, a user simply opens the lid, and it’s ready to go. This means that
wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, your computer won’t slow you down.

For a secure experience, Chromebooks run the first consumer operating system
designed from the ground up to defend against the ongoing threat of malware and
viruses. They employ the principle of "defense in depth" to provide multiple layers of
protection, including sandboxing, data encryption, and verified boot.

The Chromebook has also reduced concerns about security and data loss by moving
everything to the cloud. If the Chromebook is ever broken or lost, all of your files are
saved online.

Web-centric Entertainment, Unrelenting Workhorse
The Series 5 enables today’s digital entertainment lifestyle by simplifying browsing,
social networking, application usage and multi-media viewing. An optional VGA
adaptor can connect to a second monitor or television, while audio inputs connect to
a microphone, headphones or external speakers. The HD Webcam completes the
Series 5’s audio-visual package.

When there isn’t time for entertainment, the Series 5 can get down to business.
Productivity is enhanced with the Chromebook’s stylish and comfortable island
keyboard, which delivers performance that can’t be matched by a virtual keyboard.

Connectivity
Samsung Series 5 will connect you to your data anytime, anywhere through 3G,
WLAN and a 4-in-1 Card Reader. Verizon Wireless has partnered with Samsung
and Google to provide 3G connectivity for the Series 5 in the U.S. Verizon will
provide up to 100MBs per month of Mobile Broadband service included with device
for two years. Simple and easy additional data packages are also available for users
requiring additional space.

The Samsung Series 5 will launch in the U.S. June 15, 2011 from Amazon.com and
BestBuy.com. The Wi-Fi + 3G model will retail at $499.99, and the Wi-Fi only model
will retail at $429.99.

Key Specs:
● 0.79-inch thin case designed for comfort and mobility
● Full-size Chrome keyboard
● Oversized multi-touch trackpad
● Intel® Dual-core Processor
● 16:10 resolution
● 12.1-inch SuperBright Display – 36% brighter than standard display
