Samsung has been updated Galaxy Chromebook 2 It came out last month and brought more practicality and savings to the luxurious, expensive Chrome OS device than ever before. The laptop usually starts at $ 49 but now both Samsung and Best Buy have called for an extra $ 100 from the machine. The Intel Salaron version is on sale for 44 449 and the Core i3 (and the one we recommend for most people) is selling for under $ 599.
Paying over $ 1000 on a Chromebook is a tough sale, and Samsung seemed to have learned it with the previous Galaxy Chromebook. This new Galaxy Chromebook 2 removes some unnecessary features from the previous model and focuses on being an attractive and efficient machine. We love the overall design of the Chromebook 2 – it weighs 2.2 pounds and has a relatively light yet premium look. If the attractive “Fiesta Red” color is not your style, then the mercury gray model is also for sale and not so indifferent.
Arguably the most noticeable difference between the previous model and the Chromebook 2 is the display – the latter forgets the 4K panel and opts for a 1080p QLED touchscreen that may not be as high-end, but is nice to use. And it doesn’t even tax the machine’s battery – we’ve only been able to use the Chromebook 2 for 12 hours.

Overall, if you are looking for a fairly premium Chromebook with adequate style, power and battery life as your main machine, then the Galaxy Chromebook 2 is a great option, especially at this sale price.
