Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 now available for purchase

If you need to buy a new Chrome OS laptop, I have some exciting news. Starting today, you can trade your money for the all-new Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 360. This convertible notebook can transform into a makeshift tablet, and with Android app support, that will be very much appreciated.

While the Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 is powered by a rather anemic Intel Celeron N4500 processor, you can opt for a respectable 8GB of RAM rather than the 4GB of memory that comes with the base model. Sadly, regardless of which storage capacity you choose — 64GB or 128GB — you only get a sluggish eMMC drive. Thankfully, you do get USB-A, USB-C, 3.5mm audio, and a micro SD card reader. You can configure with option LTE wireless connectivity too.

“Sleek, stylish, and weighing less than the average textbook, we designed Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 with students in mind: it’ll go wherever they’re headed, fitting comfortably in their backpack. But ultra-portable doesn’t mean small. Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 comes with a bright, high-resolution 12.4-inch WQXGA touch screen with a thin bezel, delivering immersive viewing experiences whether students are in the classroom, on the school bus, or trying a new game. And the 360-degree hinge gives them even more versatility to use their Chromebook as a laptop, a tablet, or something in between,” says Samsung.

The electronics-maker adds, “This take-anywhere design is matched by fast connectivity and ample storage. Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 is Wi-Fi 6 compatible, giving students the fast, reliable connection they need for school and work. Plus, with an integrated 720p front-facing camera, they’ll always be prepared for virtual classes, clubs, and study groups. Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 is available with 64GB and 128GB storage options, so they’ll have the space they need no matter their project.”

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 does not have impressive specifications, but it does have something to make it worth considering — a low price. You see, the base model can be had for just $429.99, making it quite affordable. Since the target market is education, the reasonable starting price is very important. It should be available here very soon.
