On Monday, March 3, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. revealed the soon to be released new Chromebook 2 series. The new model Chromebooks are a direct improvement on the recent and popular Samsung Chromebook line with increased performance, extended battery life, and a slim, lighter build. The new products are an extension of the popular Chromebook line, which led the market with just over 60 percent of the overall share.

"Samsung has been the top selling consumer Chromebook brand for the past three years and we'll continue to grow our leadership position in this space with the launch of the Chromebook 2 Series," said Mike Abary, senior vice president of consumer IT product marketing at Samsung Electronics America.

Many of the new changes are targeting the educational markets where inexpensive and reliable products have helped Chromebooks muscle into the market, taking one in every four devices sold in K-12 schools.

"We've designed our latest models with students and teachers in mind, including features like rapid start times, longer battery life and an easy-to-grip design," said Tod Pike, senior vice president at Samsung's Enterprise Business Division.

The Samsung Chromebook 2

The new Chromebook 2s are offered in two display options: an 11.6-inch display and a 13.3-inch, 1902 x 1080 full HD display. For the most part, the two options are identical in other specifications, with only the dimensions, battery life, and processor speed differing.

Internally, the new Chromebook 2 will include an Exynos 5 octa-core processor, which is an upgrade over the previously released Exynos 5 dual-core chip in the Series 3 Chromebook. Both versions will also include 4 GB of DDR memory along with a 16 GB embedded flash storage system.

Both Chromebooks weigh in at over 2 pounds with the 13-inch version topping out at just over 3 pounds. However, each version is exceptionally thin with nearly identical 0.65" and 0.66" widths.
