Not happy that the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 has lost the functionality of its predecessor and still costs $ 699 with a Core i3? I’m with you on this, given that there are relatively comparable options available for much less. But, a current discount of $ 200 makes it much better value. I would even say that $ 499 sale on the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 is more what the price should be.
This deal was spotted by Chrome Unboxed on Sunday and is a direct deal from Samsung. You won’t find it at your local retailer or big box store. And there is no information on the expiration date of the agreement.
Frankly, this is the best price I’ve seen since the device debuted earlier this year. Plus, at $ 499, it’s a more compelling buy, as long as it meets your anticipated needs, of course. Don’t buy any device just because of a good deal; it doesn’t matter how much money you save if the device doesn’t do what you need.
This superior configuration, however, should handle the bulk of the tasks for a large portion of Chromebook users. Daily navigation, even with a dozen or more tabs, shouldn’t be a problem. Users who want to run Android and Linux apps should also have a decent experience thanks to the amount of RAM.
You get a 10th Gen Intel Core i3, 8GB of memory, and 128GB of local storage, for example. The 13.3-inch display isn’t a 4K OLED panel like the original Galaxy Chromebook, but a 1080p QLED panel with a 16: 9 aspect ratio will still look great. Galaxy Chromebook 2’s battery life is also improved over its predecessor. Just keep in mind that this Chromebook comes with a cooling fan.
The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 doesn’t come with a pen, but it does support a USI stylus if you want to add one. A pair of USB Type-C ports, a microSD card slot, a built-in webcam, and WiFi 6 support complete the package. Overall, it’s a solid mid-range convertible Chromebook at a mid-range price point. At least for now.
