Samsung just released a rugged, compact, and affordable 12.4-inch display. Chrome book laptop aligned students and teachers.
With a selling price of approx $430this new laptop is about $120 cheaper than the 13.3-inch Galaxy Chromebook 2. Despite the difference in name, both laptops have a 360-degree hinge, so they really belong to the same product family.
The price difference stems from a few key factors: the screen size (12.4-inch vs. 13.3-inch), resolution (1920×1080 vs. 2560×1600), CPU performance, and battery life.
This Chromebook 2 360 is powered by an Intel Celeron N4500 and 4GB of RAM, which seems tight to me, but should remain “functional enough” in the context of using the laptop for study. This CPU is typically used in low-cost laptop Windows products.
Normally, the computer should work well with today’s school needs, including video conferencing, thanks to its 720p camera.
There’s 64GB or 128GB (+$20) of storage, but a microSD slot would allow the storage to be expanded if needed. There’s also a full-size USB and USB-C port for further connectivity.
If you can afford the slightly more expensive Samsung Chromebooks, I’m tempted to say that based on the paper specs, they offer better value for the price and user experience.
