Get a Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 for as little as $382
Samsung’s first Galaxy Chromebook wasn’t too successful, thanks to its poor battery life and high price, but the company went in a different direction with this year’s Galaxy Chromebook 2. It arrived at a lower price point with the same striking design, and now it has been discounted further on Samsung’s website. The Celeron model is now on sale for $382.49 (down from $549.99), while the Core i3 variant is discounted to $399.99 (down from $699.99).
The Galaxy Chromebook 2 is a mid-range laptop, with either an Intel Celeron 5205U or Core i3-10110U processor. The Celeron version has 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage, while the Core i3 variant doubles that to 128GB storage and 8GB RAM. With only an $18 difference between the two, there’s not much of a reason to go for the Celeron model, especially given the additional RAM.
Other specifications include a 45.5 WHr battery, two USB Type-C ports (either can be used for charging), a microSD card reader, a 3.5mm headphone/microphone combo jack, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth, and a backlit keyboard. The Galaxy Chromebook 2 also supports any USI stylus, but there isn’t one included in the box.
If you have one of the PCs, tablets, or phones on the trade-in list, you can potentially take hundreds of dollars off the sale price. For example, a Note9 in working condition with no cracks is worth $200, bringing the price of the Core i3 Chromebook to $240 (before taxes).
