A long time overdue: Chromebooks and Chromeboxes are finally going to land into hundreds of retail stores across the US and the United Kingdom – from today. 

The news, delivered at day two of Google’s annual I/O conference, signals the first retail presence for the ChromeOS devices in the US.

American’s will find the Samsung’s recently launched Chromebook and Chromebox gracing the shelves of 100 Best Buy stores.

UK residents will find the same items appearing in the Dixons chain of outlets.

More details will be released by Google in the coming days, which likely detail some form of in-store demonstration area.

For now we’ll remain cautiously optimistic about the cloud-orientated computers chances against cheaper devices boasting native operating systems.
