Samsung Chromebook 3 XE500C13-K02US 11.6-inch

The Samsung Chromebook 3 is the follow up model of the bestselling 2014 Samsung Chromebook 2. The new Chromebook 3 has received positive reviews for its stylish lightweight design, its Anti-Glare display and its great battery life. Boasting more RAM and a newer processor than the Chromebook 2, the new Chromebook 3 offers a flawless browsing experience for users who are after a solid performing laptop running Chrome OS. The newer processor has a slower clock speed, but the lower voltage, larger l2 cache and smaller size mean better performance, better battery life and less heat. While slightly more expensive than other Chromebooks, it still comes equipped with a 1366×768 display rather than a Full-HD display.
