It announced earlier this week that Walmart has made the newest Acer Chromebook, which has a 16GB Solid State Drive (SSD), available in approximately 2,800 stores across the U.S., selling for $199. Over the weekend, Staples also began selling Chromebooks from Acer, HP and Samsung to every store in the U.S.--more than 1,500 in total.
In the 10 other markets worldwide where Chromebooks are sold, availability in national retailers continues to expand. In addition to Dixons in the UK, now 116 Tesco stores are selling Chromebooks, as well as all Media Markt and Saturn stores in the Netherlands, FNAC stores in France and Elgiganten stores in Sweden.
In Australia, all JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman stores will be carrying Chromebooks for their customers as well.
"We're working hard to bring Chromebooks to even more countries later this year," David Shapiro, Director of Chromebook Marketing, wrote.
