Samsung's newest CES shock is the standard Chromebook three

Samsung's latest CES surprise is the humble Chromebook 3

Oh, what’s that? You thought Samsung unveiled all its new notebooks at its press convention earlier at the moment? Yeah, so did we — both means, Samsung simply introduced the model new Chromebook three with hardly any fanfare, and never a lot in the best way of juicy particulars.

This is what we do know: the Chromebook three packs an eleven.6-inch show operating at 1,366×768, and a twin-core Intel Celeron N3050 chipset. You’ll get one in every of this stuff with both 2 or 4GB of RAM and 16GB of inner storage; simply know it isn’t going to be as glossy as Samsung’s different new laptops. This Chromebook’s waistline is a comparatively chunky zero.7 inches, and one may anticipate a plastic physique contemplating the lappy solely weighs 2.fifty three kilos. Nicely, not fairly: Samsung says the Chromebook three has a strengthened metallic physique, and has crafted to improved grippability. Sadly, my frantic exploratory calls have proved fruitless — Samsung simply is not speaking about pricing and availability for the Chromebook three proper now past mentioning an “early 2016″ launch.

Frankly, it isn’t onerous to see why the Chromebook three did not get a lot as a shout-out on stage in the present day — Samsung’s presser was all about status merchandise, and Chromebooks undoubtedly do not fall into that class. Whereas it won’t be as thrilling as a washer with a sink inside it, we would not be in any respect stunned to see these humble laptops wind up on retailer cabinets — and in lecture rooms — very quickly.
