The two chromebooks, which are identical save for their respective sizes and the fact that the 13.3-inch model has a 1920x1080 display resolution (as opposed to the 11.6-inch model’s 1366x768) and a slightly better 8.5-hour battery, feature a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor (2.1GHz, 2MBL2 cache), 4GB DDR3L-1600 RAM, and 16GB of onboard storage in the form of eMMC iNAND embedded flash drives.
They also both feature a 720p HD webcam; HDMI, USB 3.0, and USB 2.0 ports; microSD multi-media card reader; and a headphone/mic combo jack. For reasons unknown, Samsung opted for a pleather-stitched look on the lid of the devices.
We’re never fans of bloatware, but Samsung is shipping the chromebooks with what it says is $100 worth of software that could potentially be quite attractive, including Air Droid Premium, Wunderlist Pro, and LittleBridge.com.
The 11.6-inch version is available in black or white while the 13.3-inch Samsung Chromebook 2 comes in gray. Both will be available starting in April for $319.99 and $399.99, respectively.
