Samsung Chromebook Plus Up for Pre-Order, Available Next Week for $449

The Chromebook Plus from Samsung is now listed in the Google Store, as well as other retailers, but isn’t quite ready for purchase. If you can hold out just a couple more days, though, it should be available starting February 13, priced at $449. 

For specs, the Chromebook Plus features a 12.3″ LED touchscreen display (2400×1600), ARM OP1 hexa-core processor (designed specifically for Chromebook machines), 4GB LPDDR3 Memory, 32GB e.MMC hard drive, 39Wh battery (around 8 to 9 hours of life), 720p webcam, two USB Type-C ports, SD card support, S-Pen stylus, and access to Google Play for using all of your favorite Android apps.

Should you want to wait for the Chromebook Pro and its Intel Core M3 Processor 6Y30 ($549), you will have to hang tight as Samsung hasn’t yet confirmed an exact release date.

If waiting to order on the Google Store is no good, you can also preorder the device through various retailers, such as Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg, and others.

Who is picking one up?

  • I got it today. I don’t want it for games just business productivity while in meetings (taking notes, using microsoft office). I have an iPad Pro but I am an Android guy. I am on the fence about it. Its a great device but wonder if I should just suck it up and keep using my iPad Pro.

      The thing about the iPad Pro is that it is amazingly fast. I have a Macbook Pro 2015, and my iPad Pro at certain task just blows away my Macbook Pro. Web browsing and video streaming is so smooth and fluid on the iPad Pro. I often have video lagging and dropped frames on my Macbook Pro. I experienced this same lag on every Chromebook I’ve owned as well as every Surface Pro I’ve owned (Surface Pro 2, and 3). The iPad Pro is really the only device where this sort of lag is non existent.

      So is this device going to be as smooth and fluid for web browsing and video streaming as an iPad Pro? That is the question for me.

      • I doubt that it will be lag free or as smooth as the iPad Pro. So at least for me the choice comes down to have iOS devices in my sea of Android Devices or just sucking it up and putting everything under one umbrella, Android. With that I know its accepting lag and non-fluid performance. Sad that you have to accept trade-offs in todays mobile electronics. Apple is just the king of optimization and performance. I am yet hopefully that Google will get the equation right. The Pixel XL that has been my daily driver gives me hope that Google is capable of mastering the optimization and performance equation. But we also know that Google has ADHD.

    Ordered the asus c302 yesterday. Best buy finally got the m3 64gb version. Very excited. Was torn between the two but ultimately the backlit keyboard and 64gb storage won me over. I think the Asus looks better too.

    • Lawrence_Hart

      FYI the pro has neither a backlit keyboard or 64 GB storage.

      The Asus C302 is the best deal in the price range.

      • tu3218

        Yeah I know, which is why I chose the Asus.

        • Lawrence_Hart

          Of.course. That is why I plan on getting g a c302.

  • Orlando aka Pixel XL

    I wish they could have used a snapdragon 835..

    • SpadeX

      That would probably run awfully with desktop version of Chrome and Chrome apps.

    • I have made 104,000 thousand dollars previous year by working online from my house and I was able to do it by w­o­r­k­i­n­g part-time f­o­r several hours on daily basis. I used a business model I stumbled upon from company that i found online and I am so thrilled that I was able to earn so much extra income. It’s beginner friendly and I am just so blessed that i learned about it. This is what i do… http://statictab.com/gpfvgtj

  • Droid22

    Hopefully Chrome app support

  • Cowboydroid

    Still would like to know if it can power a 4K monitor.

  • AJA0

    I wish this could run Windows apps, because the built in stylus is exactly what I need for signing PDF’s.

    • ASYOUTHIA✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Then download Adobe’s Fill and Sign app on the Chromebook

  • iluvthesoftsoft

    The Plus has an inferior processor. Yes, it’s better than the Rockchip in the Chromebook Flip from 2 years ago. But if you could spend $50 or $100 more for either the new Asus Chromebook Flip or the new Samsung Pro (both have the m3 processor) why would you buy this one?

    • Orlando aka Pixel XL

      I don’t know but if u buy a product with the intentions of keeping it for a few years and out of the box it’s underpowered.

  • agsnapadmin

    FYI no GPS in this.. disappointing because the rest of this looks awesome

    • tu3218

      Are you really going to use a laptop for a GPS? Just use your phone.
