Early Black Friday deals: Samsung Chromebook Plus v2 and Pro discounted up to $150 off

Samsung is already sharing some of its Black Friday deals, which start on November 18 and all of its mid-range Chromebook models are discounted. Sure there are some new higher-end Chromebooks, like the Acer Chromebook Spin 13 and the Google Pixel Slate as options, but those are all starting at $599. With the Black Friday deal, Samsung’s latest Chromebooks start as low as $349.99.

Here are the four options I’m seeing now on Samsung’s Black Friday site:

If your heart is settled on the Pro, then it’s almost a no-brainer to get the backlit model. But it may make sense to consider the Plus V2 for $50 less, which gets you slightly better internals than the Pro model. Aside from doubling up on your local storage, the Plus v2 uses a 7th-generation Core m3 processor while the Plus models use the 6th-gen chip.

None of these models have integrated LTE and one other key difference between the Plus and Pro devices is the screen resolution; you’ll get a 2400 x 1600 touch display for the Pro, while the Plus v2 uses a 1920 x 1080 screen.

Thanks to Eric for the tip; Eric notes that if you’re a college student, you can get an even larger discount on the Core m3 powered Chromebook Plus v2 through Unidays!

    Hi Kevin, checking that unidays discount, it doesn’t appear to be live. Check the sender’s twitter timeline.
