Samsung recently released the Chromebook 3, which is a portable laptop with minimum display size. The laptop will be useful for school and college students and individuals who travel a lot. In this article, we will be reviewing whether the device is the right fit for you or not.
Samsung Chromebook 3 features an 11.6-inch LED display with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels. With an overall brightness of 220nits and aspect ratio of 16:9, you will be able to experience a real laptop display experience.
Samsung Chromebook 3 Specs and Features
On the specifications front, the Samsung Chromebook 3 sports an Intel Celeron processor, 2GB RAM with a maximum memory capacity of 4GB, 16GB internal eMMC storage and dual Stereo speakers.
Unlike other similar devices, the Chromebook 3 offers one USB 3.0 coupled with another USB 2.0 and a full HDMI port. The laptop also includes a separate USB port, primarily aimed for charging external devices.
Samsung Chromebook 3 packs a dedicated touchpad featuring a water-resistant keyword with 74 keys. The 4,400mAh battery integrated into the laptop is capable of delivering a backup time of up to 11 hours.
Even though Chromebook 3 only offers Intel Celeron processor, you will be able to perform all major tasks just like any other laptop. Moreover, Samsung has infused security features into the device, which enables you to protect your data from viruses and malware.
Samsung Chromebook 3 mobility
As far as mobility is concerned, users will be able to carry the device easily, since the Chromebook weighs only 2.54 pounds, featuring a slim and lightweight structure. The laptop has been designed in such a way that you will be able to view calls, messages and app notifications from other Android devices, which will be mirrored to the display of the Chromebook 3.
The Little Bridge included with the laptop enables kids to improve their English language including the ability to design their own fun characters and challenging activities.
Regarding pricing, the difference between 2GB and 4GB variant is only $50 and hence if you require a faster and future proof Chromebook you should definitely opt for the 4GB variant.
Should I buy it?
If you are looking to run advanced software then Samsung Chromebook 3 is not for you. You should buy the device if your requirement is browsing, email and word processing. You will not be able to install Microsoft Office and other practical pieces of software, so, in that case, you should consider investing on a proper Windows laptop.
