Since the announcement at CES 2017, the Samsung Chromebook Pro is finally ready for purchase from today. The new Chromebook Pro is much more powerful over two Chromebooks announced in January. The Chromebook is powered an ARM chip. In terms of processors, the Chromebook Pro features the Intel Core M3 processor, which is paired with 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM. Although there is no upgrade about the RAM memory, 4GB of RAM is plenty enough for multi tasks with Chrome OS. In storage deparment, there’s 32GB of flash (eMMC) storage. Finally, the Chromebook Pro comes with a 12.3-inch display with 2400×1600 resolution display, the brightness up to 400 nits, and a 3:2 aspect ratio.
The Chromebook Pro is indeed a convertible device, as you can also use it as a tablet if you wish as it supports the touchscreen. With a different 3:2 aspect ratio, it helps you browse the web more easily. There is also a stylus included in the device so that you can make quick notes, draw in different apps and many more. There’s a silo on the right-hand side to store the stylus when it’s not in use. The Chromebook Pro does have Android app support, the process is still in beta, so it will not be as stable as your expectation. To use the Android apps, you just need to switch your Chrome OS channel to “beta” and you’ll be able to access Google Play Store.
