Chromebook 2 review (11-inch, late 2014): Samsung's entry-level laptop returns with longer battery life

 

Samsung's entry-level Chromebook isn't perfect, what with its washed-out display, limited RAM and lack of a full-sized SD slot. Despite those shortcomings, though, it's still a solid choice, thanks to its premium design, comfortable keyboard and long...

Stylish design, relatively thin and light ; Comfortable keyboard and trackpad ; Decent battery life ; Fast 802.11ac WiFi

Lack of a full-sized SD card reader will be a disappointment to some shoppers ; Display offers limited viewing angles ; Other Chromebooks offer twice as much RAM

I wouldn't say the new Samsung Chromebook 2 is the best Chrome OS device you can buy, but that's mostly because it's just one of several good options at this price. In particular, it has a more premium design than its rivals, along with a comfortable...

Samsung Chromebook 2 review

 

Samsung's new Chromebook 2 features solid construction, a nice keyboard, and improved battery life. However, we wish it had 4GB of RAM.

With a solid build, improved battery life, and good audio for an 11.6-inch laptop, the Chromebook 2 XE500C12 is a very solid entry into the now-crowded sub-$300 Chromebook market. If your budget is tight, note that Asus’ $200 Chromebook C200 has 2GB of...

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

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 still aren't for everyone: There will always be people who need stronger performance. Who need full offline access. Who need to install Skype. If that's you, no Chromebook will do, even if it is wrapped in fake leather. For a certain kind...

Review: Samsung Chromebook 2

 

If your top priorities in a Chromebook are price, speed, and battery life, you should consider Samsung's latest Chromebook 2.

A solid, well-built chassis give this Chromebook a more serious feel (faux leather, not so much). Impressive battery life means you can leave the cord at home. The price is right

2GB of RAM. Really Samsung? Really? TN display just barely qualifies as HD. Lack of standard SD Card slot means you’ll need an USB adapter

Samsung Chromebook 2 a stronger Chromebook in more ways than one

 

Though the 11.6-inch laptop looks the same as its earlier Chromebook 2, Samsung made some changes inside and should you need help, it's now just a click away.

The Samsung Chromebook 2 with Intel Celeron offers sturdier construction than your average Chromebook with good performance with more than 7 hours of battery life, a responsive touchpad and a comfortable keyboard given the 11.6-inch size. Live video...

The display quality is disappointing even for an inexpensive laptop. Memory is fixed at 2GB.

Samsung keeps the nice-looking design of its previous 11.6-inch Chromebook 2 while making it a little more durable and puts live support help just a click away, making it a noteworthy update to the company's Chrome-computing lineup.

Samsung Chromebook 2 11.6-inch, Intel Celeron

 

The lid does have the same leather-like treatment to as the earlier model, though, making it look and feel a bit nicer than the lids of other Chromebooks. The new version also has the same 1,366x768-pixel-resolution, 11.6-inch LCD, the same wide,...

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...

Simple, usable design ; One of the best screens of any Chromebook ; Good keyboard and trackpad

Too slow to really get anything done

Samsung got almost everything right. Almost

Samsung Chromebook 2 coming in April in two screen sizes, faux-leather trim, 1080p option (hands-on)

 

Samsung joins the Chromebook makeover party with two new models -- an 11.6-incher that will retail for $319 and a 13.3-inch model that will hit for $399.

Samsung Chromebook 2 Review

 

The 13-inch Samsung Chromebook 2 delivers long-lasting battery life and a strong build. The device is capable of providing a basic computing experience on-the-go, but experienced users will be disappointed in the performance.

Exceptional typing experience ; Very quiet and stays cool ; Good battery life

Slow performance ; Poor display color and contrast
