Samsung has just unveiled a new Chromebook portable powered by an Intel Celeron processor from the Bay Trail-T family. The 11-inch Samsung Chromebook 2 now has an Intel Celeron N2840 processor under the hood and is already available for pre-order for $249.99 USD directly from Samsung.

Samsung Chromebook 2 will be widely available via multiple retail channels later this week. Samsung only revealed on configuration for now, the NP900X3E-A02US. This Chromebook 2 has the following highlights:

  • Processor: 2.58 GHz Intel Celeron Processor N2840 (fanless design)
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB DDR3L 1333 MHz; 16 GB internal eMMC storage
  • Display: 11.6-inch LED with 1,366X768 pixels and anti-reflective technology
  • Camera: 720p webcam certified for use with Google Hangouts

  • Operating System: Google Chrome
  • Autonomy: up to 9 hours

According to the official press release, this machine has a premium build that "is nearly seamless, supported by a strong metal frame from top to bottom and covered with a leather-like case, giving the Chromebook 2 the look of an expensive briefcase." We will get back to it as soon as it hits retail and more configurations become available.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
