Google is trying to win more converts to a computer operating system revolving around its popular Chrome Web browser with new lightweight laptops built by Samsung Electronics.

Tuesday's release of the next-generation Chromebooks will give Google Inc. and Samsung another opportunity to persuade consumers and businesses to buy an unconventional computer instead of machines running familiar software by industry pioneers Microsoft Corp. and Apple Inc.

The upgraded laptops have high-definition video and run even faster than the original line of Chromebooks introduced a year ago.

The price: $449 for models that only connect to the Internet through Wi-Fi and $549 for a machine that connects on a 3G network. They go on sale online in the U.S. Tuesday followed by a Wednesday release in the United Kingdom.
