  • Good processor
  • Generous amount of RAM
  • Anti-glare screen


  • Less competitively priced
  • Low resolution display

Bottom Line

While being priced slightly higher than its competitors the Samsung Chromebook 2 XE500C12-K01US makes up for it with its above entry level specs and anti-glare display, although it does have a slightly lower resolution.

The Samsung Chromebook 2 is an 11-inch bestselling 2014 laptop that received positive reviews for its stylish looks, lightweight design, anti-reflective screen, a more powerful processor and higher amount of RAM when compared to its competitors, and great battery life. It is, however, more expensive than its competitors and the screen resolution is very low compared to the 13-inch Chromebook 2. Although not quite as powerful as standard entry-level laptops, for users who want flawless browsing throughout the day, the 11-inch Chromebook 2 is one of the most powerful, high-endurance chromebooks available.

    Samsung’s new Chromebook 2 features solid construction, a nice keyboard, and improved battery life. However, we wish it had 4GB of RAM.
