In January, at the CES 2016 event, Samsung took the wraps off the “Chromebook 3” notebook. As the name implies, the third-generation laptop is powered by Chrome OS.
Design-wise, the Samsung Chromebook 3 looks similar to the predecessor. But then, under the hood, Samsung has replaced the ARM SoC with the new Intel Braswell generation Celeron chip.
Apart from guaranteeing better performance, this CPU will apparently provide better battery life when compared to the previous generation models. While the predecessor lasted only for 8 hours, the Chromebook 3 can provide up to 11 hours of heavy usage battery life, after a full 1 hour re-charge, Sam Mobile reported.
Spec-wise, the Chromebook 3 comes with an 11.6-inch display and 1,366 x 768 pixels screen resolution. This notebook is backed by 2 GB or 4 GB of DDR3 RAM. It features a metallic body and weighs 2.5 pounds. An ergonomic keyboard is also part of the device bundle.
