We’re still not quite sure how many people bought a Google Chromebook the first go around but Google is putting some pretty enticing things on the table for the Chromebooks second go-round. Just in time for the holidays, Google has announced that Samsung will be introducing a new black version of the company’s Wi-Fi only Samsung Chromebook Series 5 and that its online retail partners will be dropping the price on both the Acer and Samsung models to $299.
In addition to the new model and the price drop, Google has also unveiled some UI changes for current and future owners.
There is a new log-in screen which is much cleaner then the original and there is also a new Tabs page which now includes some new, highly requested shortcuts and an easier to navigate design.
These all come after Google gave the Chrome Web Store a new look as well.
