Bottom Line

Following the success of the Chrome book 2, the Chromebook 3 offers better performance and almost 30% better battery life for Chrome OS users on the go.

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.

Critic Reviews

  • NotebookCheck March 3, 2014

    Despite its limited scope and continuing overlap with tablets and smartphones, the Chromebook is looking to stay and stand its ground. We take a closer look at the 11.6-inch Samsung Series 3 Chromebook equipped with the same processor as the Nexus 10. Can you go wrong with a $250 laptop?
