The Galaxy Chromebook 2 weighs 2.711 pounds, which is a bit heavier than the original, but the only difference you will notice is the thickness. It’s just half an inch taller than the crazy-thin one-third of the previous model.
It is still light Most Chromebooks, But it is definitely more noticeable in your bag and harder to hold in tablet mode than the original. Thank you, you To be able to Still use it as a tablet. This new Chromebook holds 2 double-in-o-designs.
There are two versions available, the $ 700 I tested includes a 10th generation Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB hard drive. There is also a Slightly less powerful Galaxy Chromebook at 5 2,550 It uses a 10th-generation Intel Celeron processor and has only 4GB of RAM and a 64-GB SSD.
I got Intel Core i3 chips as a sweet spot on Chromebooks. They provide enough power that you don’t have to worry about how many Chrome tabs or apps you open and they keep the price down compared to models with Core i5 or even i7 chips.
The Salaron version will probably be better but less fascinating. More worrying is the Poultry 4GB RAM – I recommend upgrading to 8GB if you can afford it. This is further future proof investment. Not that websites will do any less ram up tomorrow.
For ports, there are two USB-C connectors, a microSD card slot and a headphone jack.
Now, the million dollar question: how is the battery life? The original Galaxy Chromebook handled just 6.5 hours of our standard battery drain test (playing a looped 1080p video at 75 percent brightness). I managed 12 hours, 24 minutes, happy to report the version as the result almost doubled.
