3G Samsung Chromebook on Amazon

Google unveiled its new, MacBook Air-like Chromebook on Thursday. Priced at $249, the 11.6-inch notebook costs less than a lot of tablets — let alone almost all notebooks — and comes packing an ARM-based Exynos 5 Dual processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. But there’s another model Google didn’t tell us about.

We were led to believe the new Chromebook, which is manufactured by Samsung, would be Wi-Fi only. However, you can now pick up a 3G model from both Amazon and Samsung for $329.99. This model comes with 2 years of free data, up to 100MB per month, courtesy of Verizon. That’s not bad for an extra $81.

Apart from the addition of 3G connectivity, the 3G Chromebook is identical to the sibling unveiled by Google on Thursday — both inside and out.

Will you be paying the extra $81 for 3G connectivity?
