Fans of the upcoming Samsung Chromebook Plus may soon get their hands on one as pre-ordering of the device has already started.

Of the two Chromebooks Samsung unveiled at the CES 2017, only the Chromebook Plus has been made available for pre-order at some of the major retail stores. The Samsung Chromebook Plus can be booked from Amazon, Best Buy, Google Store, Newegg, and Samsung's own website.

According to Android Headlines, Samsung has the Chromebook Plus in stock and those who order online will get theirs shipped in 1 to 3 business days. Amazon and Newegg supposedly have stocks already as mentioned in the Android Headlines report but both of their websites currently list them as "out of stock."

Chromebooks are cheaper versions of laptops that run on the Google Chrome operating system. That said, not many were initially convinced that getting one was a good investment unless the buyer is looking for something inexpensive that would do the basic jobs. Samsung, however, has managed to spike up interest in the Chromebook with its two new products.

The soon-to-be available Chromebook Plus is poised to give a good account of itself, thanks to its many impressive features. Among its remarkable specs, as listed by Phandroid, are the 12.3-inch 2,400 x 1,600 LED touchscreen display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. It runs on the ARM OP1 6-core processor and sports a 5,140 mAh, and a 39wh battery that provides up to 10 hours. The Chromebook Plus also comes with a couple of USB-Type C ports, an SD card reader, and an S-Pen Stylus. The thin and lightweight Chromebook Plus measures 11.04" x 8.72" x 0.51" to 0.55."  Another impressive feature of the Chromebook Plus is its 360-degree rotating screen that allows owners to use it as tablet especially with the S-Pen.

There is no word yet on when the Samsung Chromebook Pro will be made available but it is expected in spring. The Samsung Chromebook Plus is available for $499.
