Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook2 360

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 is one of the best value Chromebook laptops you can purchase for less than £500, with a high-resolution display that makes it ideal for watching video. But its Intel processor underwhelms for both performance and battery life.

With a slightly faster CPU and double the RAM, I’d probably be telling you the Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 is the best small-screen Chromebook out there, particularly if you want a convertible clamshell rather than a tablet. As is it, it’s still a fine option – well designed, comfortable to use and with an impressive high-res screen. Just be aware that performance isn’t up there with the best mid-range Chromebooks and this might limit how you use it as time goes on.

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.
The same applies to tablets in this size range.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
