The third one from ASUS will be available in a couple of months."There will be more Chromebooks in the coming months from ASUS and Samsung," she added.

The Chromebooks are targeted at schools. "Since launching Chromebooksin India, we've been working to ensure that Chromebooks work in an environment where connectivity can be spotty, and many people's first experiences with technology are through a phone rather than a laptop," Hashim said.
