The premium Samsung convertible Chromebook is barely four months old and price cuts are already in effect. Originally launched for $1000 USD, Amazon is now offering the model for $200 less.
Allen Ngo,

After offering cheap and affordable Chromebooks for years, Samsung finally upped the ante by introducing a high-end luxurious Chromebook worthy of the Galaxy brand name. The ultra-thin 13.3-inch Galaxy Chromebook convertible would launch in April 2020 with a 4K UHD AMOLED touchscreen, Core i5-10210U CPU, 8 GB RAM, and 256 GB of storage to be more powerful and eye-catching than most any other Chromebook out there.

The initial launch price of $1000 USD likely turned off most users as this was twice the price of a typical Chromebook. However, the new $800 price point should be more palatable for travelers and business users alike who prefer the security and cloud features of Chrome OS rather than a full-on Windows laptop.

The catch is that the deal applies only to the Mercury Gray color instead of the Fiesta Red color that Samsung uses for most of its promotional material. Chromebooks are supposed to be low-key anyway, so we prefer the gray option over the bright red all things considered.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
