Google’s latest revolution: fixing the ‘broken’ PC

Google has hailed its new laptops as a “completely new model of computing” where users don’t need anti-virus software, firewalls, backups or even to install updates.

In throwing down the gauntlet to Apple and Microsoft, Google argues that the world of computers today is “broken” and that it’s come up with the solution.

The new web-centric PCs made by Samsung and Acer – dubbed “Chromebooks” – were announced at Google’s I/O event overnight.

The computers, which boot in seconds, will be available in the US and Europe next month and Samsung confirmed today that its model will launch in Australia in the second half of this year.
