Samsung Launches the Galaxy Chromebook 2 360

Samsung has announced its latest convertible Chromebook, the Galaxy Chromebook 2 360, which starts at just $430.

“Sleek, stylish, and weighing less than the average textbook, we designed Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 with students in mind,” the Samsung announcement post notes. “It’ll go wherever they’re headed, fitting comfortably in their backpack. Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 comes with a bright, high-resolution 12.4-inch WQXGA touch screen with a thin bezel, delivering immersive viewing experiences whether students are in the classroom, on the school bus, or trying a new game. And the 360-degree hinge gives them even more versatility to use their Chromebook as a laptop, a tablet, or something in between.”

      <p>You never met my sophomore Astronomy (at which point it uses calculus) textbook. 1990s era IBM ThinkPads were lighter than it.</p>

    <p>These acronyms for resolutions have to end. WQXGA? It’s painful. Almost as painful as USB these days.</p>
