LAPTOP Magazine

  • Summary: The $399 Samsung Chromebook 2 looks slick, boots quickly and has everything you need to make the most of Google's budding Chrome OS.

  • Summary: Samsung's revamped Chromebook 2 is a comeback winner
  • Pros: Spiffy looks, Thinnest yet, Decent HD screen, In a sea of nearly identical plastic Chromebooks, Samsung's laptop is a uniquely thin and attractive option.

  • Cons: Annoyingly sluggish at times, Slightly shorter battery life, While you can finally multitask with this newly implemented Bay Trail processor, the part unexpectedly chugs.

17 September 2014
  • Summary: Samsung slapp sin første Chromebook i 2011, en maskin på omlag tre kilo som ikke slo spesielt godt an hos forbrukerne. Likevel fortsetter selskapet å oppdatere og selge oppdaterte modeller. I sommer kom Samsung Chromebook 2, i to modeller med forskjellig skjermstørrelse og -oppløsning.
  • Pros: Behagelig skjerm (fra rett vinkel), god størrelse,  behagelig tastatur, lav vekt.
  • Cons: Svært treg, dårlig ytelse, «krever» nettilgang, høy pris, mangler berøringsskjerm, rotete webstore for applikasjoner, mye reklame og lite personvern.

Test: Samsung Chromebook 2 11.6” (XE503C12)

  • Summary: Samsung Chromebook 2 är en välbyggd Chromebook med bra prestanda. Det går lätt att navigera med styrplattan och användningen flyter på bra. Mindre bra är de små högtalarna och skärmens dåliga betraktningsvinkel.
