Perhaps the best reason to buy Samsung's first Galaxy-branded Chromebook is that, well, it's a "Galaxy" Chromebook. That name means it's the biggest, best, most premium version of what Samsung has to offer.
The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is literally one of the most beautiful laptops we've ever seen, potentially the best Chromebook money can buy, and seriously just a stunner in that bright red color option, or the grey. It's ultra-thin and weighs just 2.2 lbs, packs a fingerprint scanner for security, a built-in stylus, and a 4K AMOLED display.
This thing doesn't just have a typical screen like most Chromebooks. No, it's a 13.3-inch 3840x2160 native 4K resolution AMOLED screen using Samsung's best technology. If you want the absolute best screen in any Chromebook, this is it.
Basically it's not just the display, but the entire design that should make you want this thing. It's incredibly slim with a flexible 360° hinge so the Galaxy Chromebook works as a laptop, tablet and everything in between. Yes, it's considered a convertible or a 2-in-1 laptop.
In our testing, we were blown away by the screen, keyboard, and hinge design on this $1,000 laptop.
