Bottom Line

Although released almost two years ago, the Samsung Chromebook 2 XE503C32-K01US does well to compete with the new crop of Chromebooks. A unique design, decent screen, and promising performance contribute to a great product for the Chromebook lover at a very fair price.

The Samsung Chromebook 2 XE503C32-K01US is a late 2014 flagship release from Samsung that received positive reviews for its unique and attractive design, which made it one of the best-built Chromebooks around. Reviewers were pleased with the screen quality which is great considering the product’s price tag. The battery life was also praised, which at 8 hours and 30 minutes was placed above many competitors. Users expressed concern over the Chromebook’s performance, with noticeable lag being experienced with even light multitasking. The 16GB storage aboard is also small for long term file storage. All things considered, the Samsung Chromebook 2 XE503C32-K01US remains a solid innovation that promises great value for the money.
