In the United States, Samsung has released an entry-level ChromeOS laptop for $299. The Galaxy Chromebook Go is now available for purchase on Samsung’s website as well as other retailers.
The Wi-Fi variant is the only one available at the moment, but Samsung expects to release an LTE model in the coming weeks. Both models have a 14-inch HD display with 1366 x 768 resolution, an Intel Celeron N4500 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage (expandable via microSD). Sure, you won’t be doing anything particularly demanding with those hardware, but Chromebooks aren’t exactly heavy-duty gaming machines.
They’re designed for web browsing, watching YouTube videos, checking Gmail, and downloading a jumble of web and Android apps. The Galaxy Chromebook Go is an excellent computer for such purposes.
The Chrome-OS laptop from Samsung also has a 5480mAh battery that should last 12 hours on a single charge. One USB-A 3.2 port, two USB-C ports, a headphone jack, and a microSD card reader are among the ports. This type of hardware is best suited for kids, travelers, and light web browsers, in our opinion. For them, the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go has plenty to offer.
