New Chromebook Blog

We are very proud to unveil a second site to our Chromebook network today with the launch of Chromebook Blog.

Our Chromebook Blog will provide the latest information, reviews, and professionally curated content for everything you need to know to stay up-to-date on the Chromebooks from Google.

As usual, Chromebook Forum will continue to be the place to discuss, ask questions, report problems, and get to the bottom of things in the Chromebook world.

We look forward to continuing the Chromebook revolution - to the clouds!

Sweet! Any chance you will be posting the blog articles onto the forum as well? Or how will you separate the content?
That is great. The chromebook revolution is sure going places. I look forward to knowing more about chromebooks and I am sure a lot more are still to come.
Awesome. I'm looking forward to the pre-launch updates (and hype!).
From all I've read, I'm really excited about the Chromebook. I'm in the market for a new laptop, and I am anxiously awaiting this one to come out! Good thing I don't have too much longer to wait!
I wonder how Australian's managed to get the Chromebook before anyone else.
Not sure if anything legal had to be done to make this happen. I'm thinking Australia might be a "priority" market for google chromebooks. Maybe google see's some great potential for chromebook sales in Australia. I wish America were the first to get it! Oh well it's not that much longer of a wait.

Electronic dealer Kogan has launched the Agora – the first Google Chromium OS powered laptop.

Ruslan Kogan, founder and CEO of the Australian retailer said: “We’ve been able to beat the rest of the world to bring the first commercially available laptop running Google’s Chromium OS.”

As you may know, the Chromium OS is an open source version of Google’s Chrome operating system and is still in development.

The International Business Times reports: “The low-powered laptop comes with 1GB of RAM and a 30GB SSD and is powered by an Intel Celeron M ULV processor, with a display of 11.6-inch (1366×768) and 3 USB ports. Battery life is of about 3.5 hours.”

Starting on Friday June 3rd, customers in the United Kingdom can buy the Kogan Agora Laptop for £269 while the cost to Australian customers is $349.

“Samsung and Acer announced Chromebooks based on Chromium OS last month, but we’ve beaten them to market. Kogan is the most agile consumer electronics manufacturer in the world. We react faster to market trends than anyone else,” said Kogan in the IB Times report
Australia’s Kogan Selling first Chromium OS Laptops Starting on June 3 | Chromebook Blog
It has nothing to do with legal rights.... the fact is that ANYONE can download and install Chromium on a laptop. They just chose to do this for the extra PR.

Within 6 months, I'm sure there will be lots of Chromium laptops. I believe that only if you are Google-certified will they be called "Chromebooks"

Remember folks.... Chromium is open-source.... free and available to anyone.... including Kogan.
I would be curious as to how they sell in comparison to actual Google Chromebooks.
It's a great, nice blog. How come I didn't get to know about it until today? Anyway, well done to the creators and owners of the blog site. Will visit it again.
