Bottom Line

The Samsung Chromebook Plus XE513C24-K01US is a powerful Chromebook that is perfect for all of your college classes. The included pen will make taking notes much easier and will allow you to save them as digital copies.

The Samsung Chromebook Plus XE513C24-K01US is a bestselling Chromebook that has been praised for its sleek design, USB 3.1 Type-C ports, bright Quad-HD display with Gorilla Glass 3, 2.38-pound weight and for its built-in pen. However, it runs an OP1 Cortex processor instead of an Intel based CPU which generally offer better performance. You also only get two USB 3.1 Type-C ports that will require adapters in order for you to use standard size USB devices, luckily Samsung have added one in the box. Designed for out of the box thinkers, the Samsung Chromebook Plus XE513C24-K01US can be folder 360-degrees, which will allow you to easily draw and work with Chrome OS and the pen.

    Samsung’s Chromebook Plus is the first of a new generation of Chromebooks running Chrome OS, and it's shipping next week for $449. It’s one of a pair of Chromebooks that Samsung is releasing in the first half of the year. The other is the Chromebook Pro, coming in April and costs $100 more thanks to a more powerful Intel processor.
