Looking for a “starter” Chromebook that won’t bust your budget? Amazon is discounting two Samsung 2-in-1s by up to 31% today, starting at $379.99.
Samsung Chromebook Pro
If you don’t want integrated LTE, Samsung’s Black Friday deals on the Chromebook Plus v2 and Chromebook Pro can save you a bundle. The best deal may be the $449.99 Samsung Chromebook Plus v2 with a newer Intel Core m3 processor than the Pro model.
Samsung has a new Chromebook in the works, but there’s little information available just yet. It could be a refresh of the Chromebook Pro, or perhaps even a new model to compete with recently announced devices from Acer, Dell and Lenovo.
After updating the Samsung Chromebook Plus, it appears the Chromebook Pro is getting a v.2 upgraded with an integrated LTE option and a faster Core m3 processor.
Nothing else has changed since the original model save for a backlit keyboard and it will cost you $599.
The Samsung Chromebook Pro is normally priced at $599 and while you can often find it for less on Amazon, Best Buy is currently discounting the 2-in-1 Chromebook by $100. Even better, this is the model with 64 GB of storage, not the base 32 GB configuration that Samsung sells direct.
Almost every time I tweet about or mention the Pixelbook I purchased a few weeks ago, I inevitably hear that the device costs too much. But Google has always focused Chrome OS and Chromebooks on what it calls the “three S’s” — Simplicity, Speed, and Security — for a range of markets.
