Chromebooks have a few key differences that separate them from your average cheap laptop — mostly that they’re low maintenance and store almost everything in the cloud rather than in internal storage and memory. Those who fear losing their files in a catastrophic PC failure will love this.
Its 2,400-by-1,600 resolution is probably the nicest screen you’ll find on any Chromebook. The S-Pen is included and works with Chrome OS, as Google partnered with Samsung to make both the Samsung Chromebook Pro and Plus, which were two of the first stylus-integrated Chromebooks.
Comparing Samsung’s Chromebook Pro and Chromebook Plus, the real differences reside in the hardware: The Chromebook Pro features an Intel m3 processor, which will have web pages loading about twice as fast as they do on the Plus. It’s only about $ 100 more for double the power.
With 32GB of storage, the Pro actually has more than most competitor’s 16GB (the Google Pixelbook has 256GB, but it’s $ 1,000). If you’re actually looking for a device with decent storage (like, over 32GB) or a heavy-duty processor, you should check out our roundup of the best cheap laptops.
Regularly $ 549.99 (or $ 599.99 on Samsung.com), you can save $ 70 and get it for $ 480.
