Samsung backtracks on $1,000 Chromebooks with cheaper Galaxy Chromebook 2

CES 2021 is subsequent week, and bulletins are beginning to hit the wire. Final 12 months, Samsung launched the Galaxy Chromebook, a premium $1,000 Chrome OS laptop computer that felt like a successor to the Google Pixelbook. Similar to Google, after experiencing the gross sales of a premium $1,000 Chromebook, Samsung has determined to tone down the premium-ness in subsequent variations, and at present’s “Galaxy Chromebook 2,” is a less expensive follow-up.

Final 12 months’s Galaxy Chromebook featured a headline-grabbing 13.3-inch 4K OLED show, however this 12 months, Samsung has hacked and slashed on the spec sheet to get all the way down to a cheaper price. As an alternative of a 4K OLED, we have got a 1080p LCD. The laptop computer is slower, thicker, and heavier than final 12 months’s, with much less storage, fewer cameras, and fewer RAM. All this cost-cutting has practically lower the worth in half, although: it now begins at $549.

For the beginning $549, you get a 13.3-inch 1920×1080 (16:9) LCD touchscreen; a 1.9GHz, 14nm, dual-core Intel Celeron 5205U; 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM; 64GB of eMMC storage; and a 45.5Wh battery. For $699, there may be an upgraded mannequin with an Intel Core i3-10110U, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.
