They don’t actually go on sale until June 15, but you can check out their specs (not too shabby, for network-connected devices) and make the decision about which one suits your particular needs.
The (slightly) smaller of the two is the Acer Chromebook, shown here.
The Acer Wi-Fi Chromebook is the smaller of the two, but not by much. It offers an 11.6-in screen, compared to the Samsung’s 12.1-in screen. Otherwise, apart from the Acer’s HDMI-out port (the Samsung has a mini-VGA-out port). Full specs are available at the direct links for the systems.
The larger Chromebook is from Samsung, show here.
This picture of the Samsung Series 5 Wi-Fi Chromebook makes it look a LOT larger than the Acer, but it’s just a trick of the angle of the photo and the screens on the units. TechCrunch was on hand at the Chromebooks launch and got some serious hands-on time with the Samsung Chromebook, which is available in white!
Check out TechCrunch’s mini-review of the Samsung Chromebook, and a whole bunch of photos of the white unit in action.
