Samsung Chromebook 2

 

The Samsung Chromebook 2 boasts a sleek design, sharp HD display and impressive battery life, but it's not the fastest option.

Sharp full-HD display; Long battery life; Sleek lightweight design; Useful software selection

Slower performance than Intel Chromebooks'; Bottom runs warm; microSD card instead of full SD card slot

Samsung Chromebook 2 review: A $400 laptop never looked so good

 

Chromebooks seem to be having a moment. Which is odd, because for a while there, nobody seemed to be giving them a chance. Since the first Chromebook

Stylish design, relatively thin and light ; Sharp display, especially for this price ; Comfortable keyboard and trackpad ; Long battery life

Pricier than other Chromebooks ; Performance likely weaker than soon-to-be-released Core i3 Chromebooks ; Lack of a full-sized SD card reader will be a disappointment to some shoppers ; Viewing angles aren't very good

Chromebooks will never be for everyone, but assuming you're game, the 13-inch Samsung Chromebook 2 is the one we recommend. Its sharp display, stylish design, long battery life and comfortable keyboard make it worth the premium over competing models.

Samsung Chromebook 2 review

 

Two years ago, Samsung made the first great Chromebook. It was thin, and light, and had good battery life, but most of all it was a different kind of computer. Chrome OS wasn't like Windows, which can do absolutely everything on earth including a...

Simple, useful design ; Good keyboard and trackpad ; Cool and quiet

Just can't keep up with complex uses ; Display is pixelated and washed out ; Everything's a little cramped

Not worth the money you save over the larger Chromebook 2

Samsung Chromebook 2 review

 

Samsung's revamped Chromebook 2 is a comeback winner

Spiffy looks ; Thinnest yet ; Decent HD screen

Annoyingly sluggish at times ; Slightly shorter battery life

The Samsung Chromebook 2 is also one of the first laptops sporting a Bay Trail processor, which affords its unique fanless design. Unfortunately, packing in this new Celeron CPU isn't a simple flat upgrade.

Samsung Chromebook 2

 

Samsung has long been a champion of the Chromebook. Since releasing the very first commercially available model back in 2011, it's been steadily trickling out new models, despite a lukewarm reception from consumers. The Samsung Chromebook 2 is the...

A classy Chromebook with a price that's a little on the high side

Excellent product!

 

Fantastic machine - if you aren't sure if you would like a Chromebook, try using ONLY Chrome on a device for a week or so to see if it's something you would genuinely be able to enjoy and utilize. Not sure about Chromebook? ***If you do not actively...

I hate the Chrome book

Consumer review by:

Great as a 2nd computer

 

Ordered it Wednesday at noon it arrived Thursday at 3pm -I was worried that the white might discolor, but after unboxing it appeared that the materials are very nice and would be easy to clean were that to happen.

Great battery (Advertised 8 hrs, more like 7 in real life) ; Build quality is stellar. Solid parts, track pad and keyboard feel smooth and controlled ; Quiet/Cool (No moving parts at all) ; 100gb of Google Drive storage with purchase ; Boot from cold...

power cable is strange (large/bulky) ; viewing angle on the screen is worse than most screens but not terrible. For everyday web surfing it is good

It runs very quickly

This should run quickly. The OS it comes with is honestly just a web browser with a desktop. You can't install anything except for what is in the google app store. This product isn't garbage. But the OS on it absolutely is
