Reviews for the Samsung Chromebook XE503C32-K01US

Samsung Chromebook 2 Review: Sleek But Pricey
Source: Notebooks.com English Archive.org version
Buyers will enjoy the Samsung Chromebook 2 if they don’t mind the price. At $399.99 from Samsung and most online or physical stores, it’s one of the most expensive Chromebooks available. If Samsung put in an Intel Haswell processor, we’d not even mention the price on our list of Cons above. The Samsung Exynos 5 Octacore processor doesn’t run as fast as the Intel Haswell processors that most manufacturers were using in the previous generation of Chromebooks.

70% Samsung Chromebook 2 13-inch

If you just hate the low resolution screens in Chromebooks and want something with a bit more style, then the 13-inch Chromebook 2 from Samsung is going to be the one to look at thanks to its 1920x1080 resolution screen and faux-leather trim. The design even features an excellent keyboard and long battery life but you will have to live with some inconsistent performance compared to other Chromebooks and a price that puts it close to a full blown laptop.

With a starting price of $319, the Samsung Chromebook 2 is a logical choice for someone looking for a basic, portable laptop for web browsing, streaming media, checking email, and working in Google Docs. The Chromebook 2, like all Chromebooks we’ve seen to date, is the epitome of “good enough.” If you don’t need to do much on your laptop, then a Chromebook is “good enough.”

The $399 Samsung Chromebook 2 looks slick, boots quickly and has everything you need to make the most of Google's budding Chrome OS. Its full-HD display puts it a step above many Chromebook competitors, and its lightweight design and 9.5-hour battery life make it an ideal companion for the road.

Also, bear in mind that Google’s OS has come on a lot in recent times: it allows documents and spreadsheets to be edited offline, for example, and some apps and games can be installed locally. At the same time, the amount you can get done online has increased. If you haven’t considered a Chromebook before, the Samsung Chromebook 2 13.3in might make you think again.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.
