Google slashes prices on Chromebooks Samsung and Acer have slashed prices on their Chromebook models, and Samsung has introduced a new Series 5 netbook, as well.
In conjunction with Google, the Chromebooks have been dropped to $299 and the new Series 5, which is black (and removes 3G) will sell for same price.

The devices previously cost $350 and $429, respectively.

Additionally, Google has updated the ChromeOS operating system that runs the computers, adding a cleaner login screen and easier access to the file manager.

"We've also been working closely with our partners to continually improve the overall Chromebook experience while making them even more affordable," added Venkat Rapaka, Senior Product Manager.

So used to, you'd pay an extra $79 to remove a feature and get it in black?

And now you can pay the same price, but remove a feature and get it in black?

I'm lost...
