Both the feisty Fiesta Red and Mercury Gray color options are now much cheaper than what they were when they launched a year ago. The model comes with a 10th gen Core i5-10210U CPU, metal chassis, and 4K touchscreen to be better equipped than most other Chromebooks.
Samsung is currently hosting a sale on its original Galaxy Chromebook for $400 USD off the insane original launch price of $999. The new price is much more reasonable when compared to other Chromebooks already in the market.
The Galaxy Chromebook is notable because Samsung marketed it as a high-end classy Chromebook in contrast to the sea of cheap plastic options that normally retail for just a couple hundred dollars. There are certainly very few other Chromebooks, if any, that come with a similar metal chassis, fingerprint reader, convertible form factor, 4K AMOLED display, and built-in pen holder as this Samsung system.
We’ve yet to review the Galaxy Chromebook ourselves and so we can’t offer our personal take on the model. Nonetheless, users should keep in mind that the system on sale is the first generation 2020 model which is a year behind the current Galaxy Chromebook 2 with QLED display.
