The first Chromebooks are now available for purchase.

Devices from Acer and Samsung are currently available via Best Buy and in the U.S. and at various online retailers in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands. The Chromebooks run Chrome OS and are optimized for the web.

Pricing starts at $379.99 and goes up to $499.99. When Mashable‘s Charlie White reviewed the Samsung Chromebook Series 5 3G, he said it “could change the world of computing.”

We do wonder, however, if the Chromebook’s value is lessened due to the availability of devices like the iPad and Asus’s Eee Transformer. What do you think?

Below, a look at the Samsung Chromebook Series 5 3G:
