First Chromebook Launched In U.K., Kogan Agora
Computer manufacturer, Kogan, has just launched the first Chrome OS-powered laptop in Australia and the United Kingdom. The chromebook is dubbed the Kogan Agora and is an ultra portable laptop that runs the Chrome OS on an Intel Celeron 1.3GHz processor, with 1GB of DDR2 RAM. The RAM (memory) is expandable to four gigabytes, and the unit comes with a 30GB solid state drive.
The Kogan Agora features an 11.6″ WXGA HD LED display, featuring a decent 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. Users will be able to utilize the 1.3MP webcam to do some light video conferencing, and will connect through the Internet through 802.11 b/g/n WiFi.
The Agora also has Bluetooth and a 3-in-1 card reader. The Chromebook will be available for pre-order in the United Kingdom for £269 and is set to ship June 7th. For $440 USD, it’s an okay purchase, nothing mind blowing here, except for maybe the SSD and WXGA HD LED display. We’re interested to hear what our UK readers think, does the Kogan Agora pique your interest?
