There’s no denying (at least for us) that Chromebooks are amazing machines. I mean, this Google laptop can do so much! With such an amazing online experience, mixed with a plethora of awesome apps, extensions, and themes, this is one laptop many people should own. But that’s where not everyone is so fortunate. As fate would have it, Chrome laptops don’t reach the whole world. One such place is South Korea, which hasn’t been able to experience the magic of the Chromebook. However, there’s still time for that to be made reality. In fact Samsung has already taken charge.
Back on the 18th of August, Samsung announced that they would be bringing Chromebooks to South Korea. Surely the citizens of South Korea are excited. And if they aren’t, they’ll soon see for themselves why they should be. These Samsung Series 5 Chrome laptops are priced at approximately W639,000, which converts to nearly $596 in US dollars. Well, that’s for the WiFi-only model, at least. But in South Korea, where so many places are wired for internet, that should be enough.
And it’s no secret that South Korea loves the internet. The fact that several towns have high speed cables running directly through them, just to allow every citizen to have internet, tells that much. Many South Koreans are even avid players of online video games, namely the StarCraft series.
Whether you’re American, Brazilian, or South Korean, nothing should keep us all from owning a Google laptop of our own. Samsung realizes this, and so they want to bring Chromebooks to the rest of the world. And now that South Korea is taken care of, they’re one step closer to making that a reality.
