While we didn't take this exact laptop for a spin, we reviewed the previous-gen Samsung Galaxy Chromebook. We found its breathtaking QLED display, razor-thin chassis, and speedy performance most impressive. The review unit we tested had a 10th Gen Intel Core i5 CPU which never wavered in performance. Even with 20 Chrome tabs, four of which played 1080p YouTube videos, it chugged along without a hitch. We expect the laptop in this deal to be on par performance-wise for seamless day-to-day multitasking.
Like its predecessor, the Galaxy Chromebook 2 boasts a razor-thin gorgeous, aluminum design. Colorways include Fiesta Red if you want to stand out from the crowd or Mercury Gray if you prefer a low-profile machine. As for ports, you get two USB Type-C ports, a MicroSD slot, and a headphone jack.
With a weight of 2.7 pounds and measuring 12 x 8 x 0.6 inches, the Galaxy Chromebook 2 is on par with its 2-in-1 competitors. It's a hair thinner than the HP Spectre x360 13 (12.1 x 7.7 x 0.7 inches, 2.7 pounds) and lighter than the Asus Chromebook Flip C434 (12.6 x 8 x 0.6 inches, 3.1 pounds).
