Samsung's Chromebook Plus (V2) gets turbocharged with an Intel processor

The 16:10 1920 x 1080 panel should be fine, but it's quite a bit different from the 3:2 2400 x 1600 screen on last year's model.

Tipping the scales at 2.91 pounds, the new Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 features a 12.2-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080 resolution) display that effortlessly flips back to transform the system from notebook to tablet to sketchbook (yes, a stylus is included). But now it's based on an Intel Celeron 3965Y processor, making it more of an upgrade of the old Pro. The new Chromebook Plus (V2) features a similar design to last year's model, but it comes with a faster processor and both front and rear cameras.

The V2 looks mostly the same compared to the 2017 Chromebook Plus, but there are a few important changes inside and out that should make it a much better experience for everyone - one of the most notable being the silicon that powers everything. The screen is slightly smaller and lower-res, but the Chromebook Plus V2 did gain an Intel processor, while the previous version had an ARM chip. You'll also find a headphone jack, dual speakers, 13MP camera on the back of the keyboard deck and a 1MP selfie camera mounted above the display. S-Pen support reinforces the notion that Samsung wants this to be your daily driver, as it allows you to do more than you would with a typical Chromebook. Enter the Samsung Chromebook Plus (V2), equipped with a generic built-in pen, just like its predecessor, and priced at a relatively affordable $499.99 and up. That starts with the keyboard, which has been updated with new and improved curved keycaps, as well as spill resistance.
