Having recently told you about a Samsung Chromebook that comes with the latest version of Wimdows here is their Chromebook offering that was released at the same time. So here you get a Chromebook that can also allow you to get mobile data to keep you in contact while out of the office and as it has its own SIM so no nicking mobile data from your phone.

The Chromebook Go is very much a mixed bag. Using the keyboard is enjoyable, the audio is good and there is a decent selection of ports and connectivity options. If you’re looking for an LTE compatible Chromebook, then there isn’t a lot that offer that feature, so the Go can certainly put that among its boasts. Sadly, the main downside is the lacklustre display, which not only lacks brightness but also has poor viewing angles, colour and resolution. With Samsung marketing the Go as a student device, I can’t see too many being happy with streaming video that is difficult to enjoy, especially if doing so with other people. If you’re looking for a simple, reasonably affordable writing machine for documents, spreadsheets and research, then it’s a decent choice. But, anything outside of that will most likely leave you wishing you’d gone for a different device.

Reviewing the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go has been something of a rollercoaster. A simple one, with one big lift hill and a very quick drop. To the naked eye, if you can ignore its hulking bezels, this looks extremely well-appointed. It has a 14-inch screen, something you don't always see in the generally-smaller world of Chromebooks. It has a classy black inner and a stock silvery outer case. There are plenty of ports, one of which allows you to slot in an LTE SIM and get online wherever you might be. We started our time with it pretty excited. What could there possibly be to complain about? Hitting that point of inertia and rolling over the peak of the hill means hitting the power button, and reveals the true drama of this ride. There's a 14-inch screen alright, but it's 1366x768 and so low on contrast, color, brightness and even sharpness it disappoints in every respect other than size.

There are a few worse and weaker Chromebooks than the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go, but there are many far better ones. Its performance is in the dictionary under "torpor," and its screen not only has the 1,366-by-768 resolution we thought we'd long since relegated to 11.6-inch Chromebooks but is dimmer and harder to view than they are. If you watch retailers for sales, you can find superior deals. (It was a Black Friday price, but at this writing Best Buy offered a 14-inch Lenovo Chromebook with a 1080p touch screen and twice the storage for $100 less.) The Galaxy Chromebook 2 at least has its QLED display to recommend it, but the Go reminds us of General Motors' attempt to sell the Chevy Nova in Mexico—no va in Spanish means "does not go."

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Celeron N4500: Low power dual-core SoC from the Jasper Lake series for inexpensive notebooks. Runs with clocks between 1.1 - 2.8 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter with 16 EUs and up 750 MHz. The CPU cores are smaller and slower than in the Core CPUs (e.g. Ice Lake) but manufactured on the same 10nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

Samsung: Samsung Group is the largest South Korean conglomerate and was founded in 1938. Samsung Group employed 489,000 people in 2014 and is one of the world's largest companies in terms of revenue and market strength. The name Samsung means "Three Stars" in Korean and represents the three sons of the company's founder. The company was founded in 1938 as a grocery store. With its subsidiary Samsung Electronics, founded in 1969, Samsung took up the production of electrotechnical items, focusing on consumer electronics and household appliances at an early stage. Other branches in which the large corporation is active include mechanical engineering, automobiles (Hyundai), insurance, wholesale, real estate and leisure. Samsung manufactures a wide range of electronic products, including smartphones, televisions, home appliances and semiconductors. The company's Galaxy line of smartphones is one of the most popular in the world. Samsung is also a major player in the semiconductor industry, making memory chips and processors for many other electronics manufacturers.


69.5%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
