Google has been putting some weight behind its Chromebook line lately, and now it's making them available to a lot more potential customers. The company is announcing that Chromebooks from Acer, HP, and Samsung will now be available in a number of new countries: Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, France, and the Netherlands. Those in the United States will also find it a little easier to pick up a Chrome OS machine, as Best Buy will begin carrying Chromebooks in every location that sells computers. According to Google, that will double the number of US stores that carry the Chromebook line in the US. Whether increased availability will help the computers gain a toehold in the market, however, is another question entirely.
