Xolo Chromebook, which was launched in India last month with much fanfare, is now available to purchase via Snapdeal. At the time of filing this report, the e-commerce store is offering a slight discount against the MRP of Rs. 12,999.
The Xolo Chromebook comes with 11.6-inch display of 1366×768 resolution with 200 nit brightness and is powered by a Rockchip 3288 quad-core processor with speeds up to 1.8GHz clubbed with ARM Mali 760 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Featuring 16GB eMMC storage and a microSD card for expansion, the laptop includes a 720p HD resolution webcam for recording videos and video chatting.
Connectivity options on the Xolo Chromebook include two USB 2.0 ports, SD card reader, HDMI, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Xolo claims that its Chromebook can run for up to 10 hours on a single charge. The laptop measures 290x205x17.9mm and weighs 1.15 kgs.
The Chromebook of course runs Google’s own Chrome OS, which means users need to sign in to the laptop with their Google ID to get access to Chrome OS apps, which are essentially Web-based apps. The Xolo Chromebook comes with 100GB of Google Drive space free for two years.
At the Xolo Chromebook launch in Delhi last month, Google had also announced the launch of another Chromebook laptop, called the Nexian Air Chromebook. Google had said at the event that in the coming months new Chromebook laptops from Asus (including the Chromebook Flip and Chromebook C201) and Samsung will also be made available in India.
