Pre-order new Samsung Chromebook Plus for $450

If you live at the intersection of ChromeOS, Google Play and like to use a digitizer pen for your photography (and other hand-input) needs, Samsung’s new “ChromeDroid” Chromebooks have been unleashed at CES 2017, and right now you can pre-order the Samsung Chromebook Plus (model XE513C24-K01US) for $450 at Amazon by Amazon itself. The release estimate is mid-February 2017.

This has some pretty good specs (considering it is not running Windows), 12.3-inch, 2400 x 1600 resolution, 4GB RAM, 360-degree hinge, digitizer pen included, two USB-C ports, microSD slot, and such. I would have liked to see more RAM and full SD and USB slots but I suppose there’s only so many things they can stuff in a thinner device and a $450 price.

The $450 model is using an ARM processor. The “Pro” model will use an Intel Core m3 processor but details on that will come in the future.
