Chromebooks Now Available In Singapore

Chromebooks [1] have arrived in Singapore and for some reasons, they are only on sale at Courts [2] and not elsewhere like Challenger, Harvey Norman or Best Denki. I guess Courts got the exclusivity rights for the time being.

3 models of Chromebook are available, HP Pavilion Chromebook [3] (S$449), Samsung Chromebook [4] (S$449) and Acer C7 Chromebook [5] (S$369).

For the HP Pavilion Chromebook, you can get it from HP Online Store [6] as well.

In the US, HP Pavilion Chromebook and Samsung Chromebook are retailing for US$249 (S$315) and Acer C7 Chromebook is retailing for US$199 (S$252). I think if you include shipping charges to Singapore from freight forwarder like comGateway [7], it is still cheaper to get from the US if you don’t need the warranty.

If you have the budget, I recommend waiting for the Chromebook Pixel [8] (WiFi: US$1,299/S$1642, LTE: US$1,449/S$1832).
