If there has been one almost universal complaint about the Samsung Chromebook Pro, it has been the lack of a backlit keyboard. Many felt, me included, that for the price point of $599, it should have had this simple feature. It would see that Samsung has listened. Over the weekend, the product page for the Chromebook Pro on the Samsung site was updated and it highlights that it now comes with a backlit keyboard.
The price of this slightly updated Pro is $599, the same price as the original when its as released last year. Based on the specifications listed on the product page, it appears to be exactly the same device as the first generation Chromebook Pro, just with the keyboard backlighting added.
