Was the $999 price tag too off-putting to pull the trigger on the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook with 4K display? Perhaps a $100 sale will tempt you: Best Buy is selling this powerful 2-in-1 for $899.
Asus doesn’t want the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook to have all the fun today: The company made its $999 Asus Chromebook Flip C436 available directly, although the $799 model is likely enough Chromebook for most people.
As expected, the $999 Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is available today. Should you get one? Based on early reviews, there’s a battery life surprise that you need to know about because it’s not the good kind of surprise.
In February, the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook briefly showed an April 6 release date, which was pulled. Looks like it’s back and this anticipated Chromebook arrives next week.
Best Buy is now showing an April 6 release date for the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook. Interestingly, Samsung’s own product page adds another surprise tidbit: LTE connectivity for this 2-in-1 Chromebook.
Pre-orders for the base model Asus Chromebook Flip C436 are up on Amazon, with a February 24 release date. You can also drop $999 for a configuration that is closer to the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook, due by March.
Additional details on the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook have surfaced including the number of configuration models, support for wideband audio over Bluetooth and more.
After spending 30 minutes with the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook, I think most who part with $999 for it will be happy. Battery life is lower than I thought but the display, design and performance may make up for that.
Announced at CES 2020, the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook pairs high-end hardware with the speed, security and simplicity of Chrome OS. This sleek 2-in-1 has a fingerprint sensor, stylus and 10th-gen Intel inside.
