Samsung Chromebook 4 deal
The Samsung Chromebook 4 looks exactly like you'd expect from its low price. With curved edges and a silver hue, the Samsung Chromebook 4 looks a lot like the many MacBook copycats we've seen over the years. Its aluminum top feels a little nicer than we expected, but the laptop's price shows in the plastic body.
Samsung also says the Chromebook 4 passed multiple MIL-STD 810G durability tests (including transit drop, vibration, high temperatures and freezing, humidity, blasts of dust and low pressure).
The Intel Celeron 3000N processor and 4GB of RAM driving the Samsung Chromebook 4 provides decent power for multitasking, especially at this price. When we split the screen between 12 Chrome tabs, including ones for Giphy, a Google doc and a 1080p YouTube video, we saw lag only when I moved back to the Giphy page. The Google doc, with notes about the system's performance, stayed responsive.
