Samsung’s new Galaxy Chromebook 2 is no longer on pre-order. It went on general sale this morning for a starting price of $549. Announced at this year’s CES, this Chrome OS-powered machine has a much more reasonable price than the original, but still offers plenty of features to complete your web tasks.
The specs for this device include a 13″ QLED touchscreen with support for the S Pen, a basic specification with 4 GB of RAM and an Intel Celeron processor, and 64 GB of storage. If you need a little more power, which wouldn’t surprise me since 4GB of RAM is pretty ridiculous, there’s a $699 model with an i3 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. That’s a little more respectable in 2021.
If I liked Chrome OS more, I might go for this machine, but yes, I need real programs to edit photos and videos.
