Samsung Galaxy Chromebook convertible brings beauty to Chrome OS, now shipping with 4K AMOLED and Intel 10th gen Core i5 for $999 USD
Unveiled earlier this year at CES, Samsung and resellers like Best Buy are now shipping the Galaxy Chromebook to customers in North America. The 13.3-inch convertible is notable for having a 4K UHD AMOLED panel, Comet Lake-U Core i5-10210U CPU and an integrated pen recess all in a super-sleek 9.9 mm-thick chassis design. In comparison, most other Chromebooks are visual eyesores powered by slower Celeron or Pentium processors.
The biggest drawback is price; expect to put down $1000 for the fancy Samsung to be about twice as much as the average Chromebook. You'll have to really value the ultra-slim form factor and portability of the machine to make it worthwhile. Fortunately, Chrome OS has evolved quite a bit over the years to include Android Play Store compatibility which will help boost the longevity and functionality of the hardware.
