lSamsung's New Chromebook Plus And Pro Should Make Microsoft and Intel Nervous

The new Samsung's Chromebook Plus and Pro, announced at CES 2017, were a clear reminder that Samsung has backed this whole Chromebook thing all along. In fact, the company produced the first Chromebooks way back in the year 2011. All the competitor and PC manufacturers have jumped on board since then, but Samsung’s remained to be the best option.

Samsung's New Chromebook Plus And Pro

According to Wired, both the Samsung Plus and Pro are two flavors of one device, but it’s difficult to say what kind of device that is. The 2 device feature full-size keyboards and trackpads, super-high-resolution 12.3-inch screens and Micro SD card slots. Also, both offer 4 GB of ram and 32 GB of internal storage.

Samsung's New Chromebook Plus And Pro weigh approximately 2.5 pounds. With the said features, both Chromebooks makes them a bit like laptops, right? The answer is yes, except for the featured pen that slides out of a slot on the right. It really looks exactly like the Samsung Note 5’s old stylus, together with the touchscreen and the 360-degree hinge.

Difference Between Samsung Chromebook Plus And Pro

The Plus and Pro have the same 2,400 x 1,600 display. They have the same ports, same battery, same keyboard, same touchpad, same stylus. The New Samsung Chromebooks are almost the same, the only real difference between the two is their processor and, of course, their price.

The Samsung Chromebook Plus uses a mobile chip while the Samsung Chromebook Pro features a laptop-grade Intel silicon. The Plus costs $449 and it will be available in stores in February. The Pro arrives this spring and Samsung doesn't have the announcement about its price. But expect to pay more than $449, the cost of Samsung Chromebook Plus. According to Digital Trends, Samsung admits that the Chromebook Plus will lag the Pro in multi-tasking and certainly demanding workloads.
