This new 11.6-inch Chrome OS-powered laptop has the Intel Celeron N3050 processor under the hood, next to 2 GB memory and 16 GB internal storage, and retails for $199.99 USD.

Samsung unveiled the affordable Chromebook 3 back in January at CES, and now this Intel Braswell-powered portable is already available for purchase. The Chrome OS-driven, 11.6-inch Chromebook 3 is only available with 2 GB of memory for now, but a 4 GB version should also hit the market soon.

Samsung Chromebook 3 uses the Intel Celeron N3050 SoC, helped by 2 GB of memory and 16 GB of eMMC internal storage and a microSD slot. Its matte display has 1,366X768 pixels while the list of connectivity features includes WiFi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI, as well as USB 3.0. The Chromebook 3 weighs 2.5 pounds, is 0.7 inches thick, and promises to offer up to 11 hours of autonomy.

Although its price is just $199.99 USD, this Chrome OS portable has a sturdy magnesium frame designed to go handle drops and to withstand spills as well. For now, it is only available on backorder via Adorama and the shipment date is not displayed yet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
