It's a Chrome OS laptop and an Android tablet, and it's currently at its lowest price ever. You can get the recently-released Samsung Chromebook Plus from Amazon for only $379 while the deal lasts.

Chromebooks are already known for being generally inexpensive, yet it's nice to be able to shave a few bucks off one every once in a while. Currently, Samsung is offering a nice deal on one of its Chromebooks, the Samsung Chromebook Plus. It's a laptop that can flip into a tablet, and it runs Chrome OS (of course) but can also handle your favorite Android apps.

The thin and lightweight Chromebook Plus isn't a powerhouse by any means, but it can still get mainstream tasks done. Still, if you really want to know what specs it packs inside, here is a quick rundown:

  • 12.3-inch 2400x1600 LED touch display
  • OP1 2 GHz hexa-core processor (in a Dual ARM Cortex-A72 and Quad Cortex-A53 big.LITTLE configuration, w/ a 1 MB L2 cache)
  • 4 GB of RAM
  • 32 GB internal storage, expandable via micro SD
  • 720p front-facing webcam
  • 2x USB-C ports
  • A microSD multi-card reader
  • 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity
  • A 5140 mAh, 2cell Li-Ion battery
  • Chrome OS w/ support for Google Play Store apps

It's good enough for browsing the web and streaming HD videos, creating documents and reading books, drawing (it comes with a built-in stylus) and maybe even playing less graphically-intensive games (or those that support changing the graphics settings). And it runs a bunch of the apps available on the Play Store. At $379, it's not a bad deal by any means. You can check out the discounted Samsung Chromebook Plus here.
