Netbooks Powered by Google’s Chrome OS Expected to be in the $300-$400 Price Range

April 20, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

Not long ago, Eric Schmidt was seen in a video talking about how the Google Chrome OS-powered netbooks will be sold at notably low prices – and even though the video can be pretty hard to find nowadays for some reason, it turns out that the promise is more or less true, as we’re now getting word on some of the first laptops featuring Google’s OS.

Several manufacturers have shown interest in manufacturing laptops based on the operating system, including Dell, ASUS, Lenovo, Medion as well as Acer – which will make the decision a bit difficult for Google, surely, but we’re sure they’ll pull through with a good one in the end.

The main point is though, that because manufacturers aren’t being charged with software tax, they can afford to sell their laptops in the $300-$400 price range. Which, if it turns out to be true, will be a fantastic deal for people on the lookout for efficient budget laptops – so keep an eye out on Google’s Chrome OS as they release it during the second half of this year.
