Images and videos come alive on the laptop’s 11.6-inch, HD (1366x768) display. High-powered speakers, along with enhanced low range round and high definition audio, make it even easier to enjoy crisp, clear multimedia on the Chromebook 2.


For maximum on-the-go connectivity, the Chromebook 2 offers up to nine hours of battery life, so users can stay powered all day without needing to seek out a power source.


Brilliant Screen Quality

In addition to HD resolution, the Chromebook 2 features anti-reflective technology resulting in a display that looks great in any light, both indoors and out. The 1366x768 resolution provides high quality images on the laptop’s LED screen. To complement the advanced visuals, the Chromebook 2 also includes enhanced sound and camera features, with two 2 watt speakers, an internal microphone and a 720p HD web camera certified for exceptional use with Google Hangouts.


Striking Design

Weighing just 2.6 pounds and measuring half an inch thin, the Chromebook 2 can effortlessly be carried anywhere. The build is nearly seamless, supported by a strong metal frame from top to bottom and covered with a leather-like case, giving the Chromebook 2 the look of an expensive briefcase. In addition to adding a premium design, this material adds functionality by making the device easier to grip and hold – especially important for students and children.


The Samsung Chromebook 2 is equally impressive once the lid is open. It features an ergonomically designed keyboard with curved keys, resulting in a more comfortable, faster typing experience.
