The newest member of the Samsung family is being Galaxy Chromebook 2. The convertible laptop is the world̵
In addition to the new 13.3-inch 1920 x 1080 QLED display, this is also the first Chromebook to provide quantum dot panels. This should provide the ability to display brighter, sharper and more vibrant colors, which makes sense given the way Samsung uses quantum dot technology in many of its other new products this year. The only real concern is Samsung’s choice to use a dated 16: 9 aspect ratio instead of 16:10, but it honestly still makes a fair bit of sense for a Chromebook.
The base model of the Galaxy Chromebook 2 offers an Intel Celeron 5205U chipset, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, which is great for students and casual users. You also have the option to spend an additional $ 150 for a 10th Gen Intel Core i3 processor and double the amount of storage and memory.
Samsung is also pushing its new Smart Amp feature, which boosts volume and makes it up to 178% louder than the average amp. This makes it perfect for getting immersed in movies and lightweight games. The lattice keyboard has wider keycaps and bright backlighting, making typing easier. It also supports Universal Stylus Initiative (USI) pens, with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, in case you want to use one.
The Chromebook 2 is designed with a predominantly aluminum frame and has a pleasantly thin profile of just 13.9mm. You can opt for the eye-catching Fiesta Red finish or, if you’re looking for something a little less flashy, there’s also a quieter Mercury Gray option. It weighs 2.71 pounds and has support for Wi-Fi 6. The 720p webcam is a bit disappointing, but that’s still HD, so it’s enough.
The computer runs on ChromeOS, which gives you easy access to your Google Drive files and other Google apps, such as Meet. It also has a built-in Google Assistant so you can get answers to your questions and your smart home appliancesand manage your calendar hands-free.
The price of the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 will start at $ 549.99 once released in Q1 2021. You can sign up for the latest updates on it, including how to get a $ 80 credit when you reserve and pre-order the 2-in-1 laptop for yourself.
