“We’re seeing more and more people flocking to Chromebooks as families, students and other consumers seek out easy-to-use, highly portable and affordable laptops as resources for personal use, education and even work,” said Gary Riding, senior vice president, Mobile Computing at Samsung Electronics America. “Samsung recognized that demand when we launched the first-ever Chromebook in 2011. We’re continuing to keep up with evolving consumer needs with this new iteration, which offers even more convenient features that solve consumers’ pain points, like all day battery life and fast charging capabilities.”

The Chromebook 3 was built for mobile use, with features that make it perfect for carrying between rooms, meetings or classes. It weighs just over 2.5 pounds, is comfortable to hold and was designed for improved grip, reducing worry when juggling books, bags or other items along with the Chromebook. A reinforced metal body adds durability against drops and spills, adding peace of mind while on-the-go. For ultimate productivity, the ergonomic keyboard creates a better typing experience, with UL certified curved keycaps, while the display’s 180-degree hinge makes sharing content effortless.
