Google says “‘Tis the season for Chromebooks!”. Just in time for the upcoming Holiday season, Google announced a new lower price on their Chromebook, as well as a new streamlined interface.

First, let’s start with the Chromebooks from both Acer and Samsung that will be available starting at $299.

Google says, “We’ve also been working closely with our partners to continually improve the overall Chromebook experience while making them even more affordable. So, we’re excited to share that beginning this week Acer and Samsung Chromebooks will be available starting at $299. The updated prices will be available through our online retail partners.”

Here’s a video clip (don’t blink) about how to set up your Chromebook.

In order to simplify things, Google has created a super clean login experience.

The tabs page was also revamped and sports the apps, bookmarks and most visited sites center stage. They also added some shortcuts to the File Manager and Music Apps and Games in the Chrome Web Store.

Will you be adding a Chromebook to your Holiday wish list?

    The new pricing and other improvements should make Chromebooks even more attractive to businesses and schools. Ericom has an offering that can extend the benefits of Chromebooks by providing quick and easy access to Windows applications and virtual desktops. Ericom AccessNow is a pure HTML5 RDP client that enables Chromebook users to connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server (RDS Session Host), physical desktops or VDI virtual desktops – and run their applications and desktops in a browser.

    Ericom‘s AccessNow does not require Java, Flash, Silverlight, ActiveX, or any other underlying technology to be installed on end-user devices – an HTML5 browser is all that is required.
