Perseverance always succeeds and this lesson was learnt by both Google and Samsung with their Google Chromebook which has climbed to the top of the Amazon’s best seller list. After a 15 month struggle the Chromebook is finally reached the pinnacle of success and has pushed Apple’s 13 inch MacBook Pro to the second place.
The recently launched Google Chromebook emerged as the best notebook seller of all time on Amazon. Check out Samsung Chromebook on Amazon here.
The third position is occupied by the 3G Chromebook and is then followed by 13 inch MacBook Air while the big 15.6 inch Dell Inspiron settles at the fifth position. The latest Chromebook has amazing features which includes a 2GB RAM, an 11.6 inch display, and a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor. There are two variants of the Chromebook – Wi-Fi and 3G/Wi-Fi. Both feature in the Amazon best sellers list
According to Gartner analyst Carolina Milanesi, she is not very sure if price has a role to play in the sales of the Chromebook.
Milanesi feels, “Consumers do not want to choose between apps and Internet; they want both. The $249 is certainly an interesting price point, but consumers have been burned with netbooks and will be cautious and look beyond the price tag.”
Netbooks have failed to impress the consumers. The Netbooks have smaller bodies and costs less but performs poorly in comparison to the laptops which are only marginally expensive. However it must be accepted that the consumers still have faith in Google’s ability to give a great product. The first batch of Chromebook has failed but the next update is performing quite well.
Google has not started the shipping of computers to the retailers; however consumers who pre- order will receive the device in six to ten days.
