A pair of new Chromebooks from Samsung

Laptops
I'm Dan Ackerman, and we're here taking a look at the Samsung Chromebook 2. You know, the current generation of Chromebooks, a lot of them look the same, same features, cost about the same. How do you stand out from the crowd? Well, Samsung says that it's the Chromebook 2. And the first thing you notice, they actually look pretty different. Both the 11-inch and 13-inch sizes have this new design that's kind of leathery-looking and feeling even though it's not. It's got a-- it's got a little stitch around the edge, and that really is kind of a different look than a lot of the other low-cost Chromebooks that we've seen. Inside, there are a couple of changes, as well. They both have the Samsung Exynos 5 processor, slightly a different version. It's an upgraded one in the 13-inch, but different than the Celerons you see in a lot of the other Chromebooks. They've upgraded the RAM to 4 gigs, which should be nice. They still have the same kind of small 16-gig solid-state hard drives, but the whole idea of a Chromebook is you're putting everything on the cloud, you don't need to store a lot of stuff locally. What I'm most excited about is the fact that you have a larger 13-inch version. We've only seen one 13-inch Chromebook before now. And this guy actually has a 1920x1080, a full HD screen, which is something I don't think we've seen on a Chromebook-- at least in this price range. The 11-inch version still has the regular 1366x768 screen. Now, they're gonna cost a little bit more than the least expensive Chromebooks out there, the 11-inch. This is gonna be $319, which sounds like it's gonna be $299 at stores to me, and $399 for the larger 13-inch one. And they should be out a little bit later in 2014. With the Samsung Chromebook 2, I'm Dan Ackerman.
