90% Samsung Chromebook Pro review

The Samsung Chromebook Pro skews a little too heavily towards being an Android tablet. Regardless, it’s a solid hybrid that brings us one step closer to the perfect marriage between Chrome OS and Android.

79% Samsung Chromebook Pro review: One misstep spoils the show
Source: Engadget English
If you're the type of user who is more interested in a great display or S Pen support, the Pro is definitely worth a look. It can do double duty as a stylus-driven tablet and a solid laptop better than the Chromebook Flip. But for the average computer user who wants a comfortable laptop that can last all day, the Pro comes up just a little short.

This is the perfect Chrome OS device for users needing an Android tablet for 70 to 90% of the time that flips back into a traditional laptop for writing emails and the odd article. If your use case is the same, this is the hybrid you need.

Samsung Chromebook Pro: Early Hands On

I’ll be straightforward: I wasn’t crazy-excited about the Pro showing up. Don’t get me wrong, I was happy to get one for review and happy to take another look. I just wasn’t excited like I was back in January.

Samsung Chromebook Pro and Plus Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Samsung Chromebook Pro and Plus are the first Chromebooks to include an embedded stylus and support Android apps as soon as you log in. The lightweight, aluminum chassis and crisp, vivid display also help define these machines as premium 2-in-1s. However, if you don't need the stylus or premium screen, Asus's Chromebook Flip C302CA costs $50 less, has a much better keyboard and offers more internal storage; it does not come with Google Play preloaded, but you can easily get it.

80% Samsung Chromebook Pro review – One of the best
Source: Techno Buffalo English
I love my Chromebook Flip and I didn’t think I was in the market for an upgrade. I take that computer with me when I want something really light, or if I’ve forgotten to charge my iPad Pro. When I really need to get work done, though, I still rely on my MacBook Pro or Surface Book, both of which cost well more than twice the price of this Chromebook Pro.

Samsung's Chromebook Pro is the best Chromebook yet
Source: Yahoo English
See, Google has programmed the Plus and Pro to understand how most people write. As a result, the Chromebooks are able to predict how fast you’re jotting something down, and all but eliminate the kind of lag that makes writing with a stylus feel unnatural. The Plus and Pro’s displays are also pressure sensitive — so if you press hard while writing, you’ll see a wider, darker pen stroke.

Samsung Chromebook Pro review: Finally a great option from Samsung
Source: Android Central English
The only question for me is whether or not the Chromebook Pro's Intel Core m3 processor is worth the $100 bump in price over the Chromebook Plus model with an ARM chip. Assuming that performance holds up on the Plus, this hardware is even more enticing at just $450. Either way, this line is an excellent one-two punch that brings Samsung back into the conversation of lust-worthy Chromebooks while also diversifying Google's overall Chromebook market with two more great choices.

The Samsung Chromebook Pro isn’t perfect, but it is a step in the right direction. The combo of firm, thin, aluminum body with a mesmerizing screen simply hasn’t been done this well in a Chromebook up until now.

Review: Samsung’s Chromebook Pro will change the way you look at Chrome
Source: BGR English
As for pricing and availability, the Samsung Chromebook Pro will be released sometime in late April for $549. Of note, the Google Play store for Chrome will exit beta around the same time. Samsung’s more affordable ARM-powered Chromebook Plus can be preordered right now for $449 on Amazon or on Samsung’s website, and it will start shipping this Sunday, February 12th.

Review: Samsung Chromebook Pro brings touch computing up a notch
Source: Computerworld.com English
It is not inexpensive for a Chromebook -- it will be priced at $549 when it ships at the end of April (the Chromebook Plus, which will be available this coming Sunday, will list at $449). But for a good looking and performing Chromebook with a durable metal frame, comfortable keyboard and excellent touch display, along with the included stylus, you may find it worth the cost.

We started off this review likening the Samsung Chromebook Pro to Microsoft's original Surface Pro tablet, and after putting the system through our spate of benchmarks and plenty of real-world use, we find ourselves right back to that notion. There's a lot to like about the hardware Samsung has created, including the stunning screen and slim, premium-feel design.

Samsung's premium Chromebook Pro is one of the first chromebooks to run Android apps. But it's likely only a matter of time before less expensive models roll out with the same functionality.

Samsung Chromebook Pro: First look
Source: It Pro English
Tim Baxter, president and COO of Samsung Electronics America, kicked off the keynote by admitting 2016 had been a "challenging year" for the company. He later said the company would "very soon be sharing the root-cause report on the Note 7", having spent the past couple of months working with third-party experts and the company's own engineering teams to work out what had caused the supersized smartphones to overheat.

Comment

Model: Chromebooks are not quite as prolific as one might think. It begs the question if it is suitable for a casual blogger or even users who just wants to stay connected. While the specification may not seem earth shattering, it is worth mentioning because it will play a role in one of the chromebook’s key strength, which is battery endurance. So, what exactly does the Samsung Chromebook Pro XE510C24-K01US sport? It is powered by an Intel Core m3-6y30 processor with 4 GB of RAM and a 32 GB eMMC-based SSD. If the storage capacity seems disappointing to you at the first glance, it means you are not the target audience. For its given target audience and price it is quite nice to see that Chromebook’s out there sport high resolution displays. The Samsung Chromebook Pro XE510C24-K01US features a LED QHD 2400 x 1600 pixel screen, which is quite impressive. It is reasonably bright and vivid. Due to its aspect ratio users can get more vertical space when viewing photos or reading web pages. However, when watching videos, which are usually 16:9 or 21:9 formatted, this might feel claustrophobic due to the letterbox effect. If you are able to get used to it, this should be a minor gripe.

Another thing to mention here is its chassis design and quality, which is quite impressive for its price. The all brushed aluminium chassis looks and feels premium. It seems that Samsung that no expenses were spared. Even so its weightage is quite impressive at only 1.088 kg, which is as good as a kilo. Overall Samsung made sure the Samsung Chromebook Pro XE510C24-K01US remains light and robust to frequent travelers, who may pocket it with them. The way the Samsung Chromebook Pro XE510C24-K01US is sized means that the keyboard is will to be cramped. The distance between keys is normal, but the actual height of the individual keys is reduced, which can be annoying since you might press the wrong key. Worse still if this keyboard is targeted at bloggers, one might end up with many hours of correcting mistakes due to it. In terms of key travel, it is quite shallow. With only 1 mm of actuation it feels like there are times you might second guess yourself if you had actually pressed the key. Although on the trackpad side of things, things are a wee bit better. Tracking on the trackpad feels accurate enough.

Because the Samsung Chromebook Pro XE510C24-K01US is somewhat designed as both a notebook and tablet in mind, it includes a built-in stylus, which can be useful for note taking or even some light sketching although users shouldn’t expect much from the stylus as it lacks pressure sensitivity. Finally, battery life has to be mentioned for a device of this class, with the Samsung Chromebook Pro XE510C24-K01US scoring up to 8 hours and 43 minutes, which means the display actually ate into its battery life as expected. However, when compared to its competitors the Samsung Chromebook Pro XE510C24-K01US actually fared better. The gorgeous looking screen compensates for its slightly reduced battery life. The Samsung Chromebook Pro XE510C24-K01US performs well as a regular notebook as well as a tablet without sacrificing important features. However, it would have been somewhat better if its storage was at least 64 GB.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
