To start your Monday morning & work week, how about a great offer from Amazon on the Samsung Chromebook 2. This 11.6″ Chromebook was introduced in October of last year and up to this point has retailed for $249.99. Today you can get it for $185.99, a savings of $64.00, while supplies last. The Samsung Chromebooks have been some of the most highly rated units available for Chrome OS with this updated version of their original product receiving similar praise. Sporting a 11.6″ HD LED 1366 x 768 display, the Chromebook 2 has 2GB of DDR3L SDRAM and 16GB of onboard storage. It is powered by a 2.16 GHz dual-core Intel Celeron processor, has 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi support and has 9 hours of battery life.
One thing you will notice as you look at the specifications is that this unit is about more weight than most Chromebooks. Weighing in at 4.38 lbs, this is nearly double that of most other units. This is because instead of a plastic chassis, Samsung used an aluminium chassis in the Chromebook 2, making it far more durable than most. If you are going to be using your Chromebook heavily, especially while traveling, the Samsung unit is going to be able to take a few more bumps in and out of your travel bag than most Chromebooks.
As with all Chromebooks, when you pick up the Chromebook 2, you will get 100GB of additional Google Drive storage for free for 2 years. If you are already a Google Drive user, you will be able to
go to the Chrome OS Goodies site and add the additional storage to your account.
If you have been looking for a small, compact Chromebook, this is certainly one to consider. At this price point it is hard to beat.
