Samsung’s Galaxy Chromebook Go is now official for $ 299

Samsung’s new entry-level Chrome OS laptop, the $ 299 Galaxy Chromebook Go, is available to buy now from Samsung’s website and other retailers. While only the Wi-Fi model is available on Thursday, Samsung plans to offer an LTE model in the coming weeks, which should be a nice perk for web browsing on the go.

The modest price of Galaxy Chromebook Go seems to be reflected in its characteristics. It has a 14-inch 1366 x 768 HD display, a definite step down from the 4K OLED panel that shipped in the $ 549 Galaxy Chromebook 2. It’s also powered by an Intel Celeron N4500 processor and 4GB of RAM, which probably won’t set the world on fire, but it should be enough for casual Chrome use.

Samsung claims that 5480 mAh battery The Galaxy Chromebook Go should last 12 hours on a single charge, which compared to the Chromebook 2’s roughly seven-hour battery life (in our tests) is excellent, but is also likely related to differences in display and processors between the two models. The internal storage comes with 32GB (expandable if you have a microSD card on hand) and the Chromebook Go includes a USB-A 3.2 port, two USB-C ports, a headphone jack, and a microSD card reader.
