In January, at the CES 2016 event, Samsung took the wraps off the “Chromebook 3” notebook. As the name implies, the third-generation laptop is powered by Chrome OS.
Design-wise, the Samsung Chromebook 3 looks similar to the predecessor. But then, under the hood, Samsung has replaced the ARM SoC with the new Intel Braswell generation Celeron chip.
Apart from guaranteeing better performance, this CPU will apparently provide better battery life when compared to the previous generation models. While the predecessor lasted only for 8 hours, the Chromebook 3 can provide up to 11 hours of heavy usage battery life, after a full 1 hour re-charge, Sam Mobile reported.
Spec-wise, the Chromebook 3 comes with an 11.6-inch display and 1,366 x 768 pixels screen resolution. This notebook is backed by 2 GB or 4 GB of DDR3 RAM. It features a metallic body and weighs 2.5 pounds. An ergonomic keyboard is also part of the device bundle.
This device comes equipped with 16 GB of native storage space, along with a microSD card slot to facilitate expansion. It features HDMI and USB 3.0 ports.
The U.S. retailer Adorama recently listed the Chromebook 3 for preorder with a cool price tag of $199.99. Currently, the site says the device is “Temporarily On Backorder.” But then, a note on the page says: “Although this item is temporarily on Backorder, you can order it now and it will ship as soon as it arrives. Your card will only be charged once item is shipped.”
Here is the lint to purchase the Samsung Chromebook 3 notebook computer. Upon ordering the device, buyers can avail free shipping service from Adorama.
