Elevate the Google Experience with Samsung's First-Ever Galaxy Chromebook

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today introduced Galaxy Chromebook, a premium 2-in-1 device that sets a higher standard in mobile computing. This new entrant to the Galaxy Computing portfolio redefines what a Chromebook can be. As the thinnest Samsung Chromebook ever released, it combines the best of Samsung technical innovation - such as an AMOLED display and built-in-pen support, offering users new ways to take advantage of Chrome OS experience that is simple, fast, and seamless.

"The notion that we do everything stationary at a desk is a thing of the past, and people need premium devices built for our new reality," said Alanna Cotton, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Samsung Electronics America. "By offering a seamless, premium user experience, Galaxy Chromebook helps you effortlessly switch between streaming, creative projects, word processing, and more."
Galaxy Chromebook is a laptop that users can be proud to show off, whether they're in a classroom or the office. Available in a stunning Fiesta Red, or more subdued Mercury Gray, its premium aesthetic design is sure to draw eyes wherever life takes you. Measuring just 9.9 mm thick, Galaxy Chromebook is made to withstand the everyday wear-and-tear of life on the move, built from durable aluminium.

Offering a cinema-like viewing experience, Galaxy Chromebook boasts a stunning AMOLED display—the first ever featured on a Chromebook—that delivers 4K UHD resolution for incredible picture quality, right in your hands that can be taken with you on the go. Coupled with a near-infinite screen and slim 3.9 mm bezel, this device offers true-to-life visuals for immersive gaming and crystal-clear photo viewing and editing. Available later this year, Galaxy Chromebook will soon come with HDR400 that delivers high-contrast graphics, along with Ambient EQ capabilities, so you get a viewing experience that's vivid and easy on the eyes, so that you never walk away from your computer feeling strained.

Performance that Powers Productivity
As a premium device, Galaxy Chromebook comes packed with productivity tools to help you get more done. The built-in pen lets you write, draw, and navigate Galaxy Chromebook quickly and efficiently—so you can share your brilliant creations on-the-go. Plus, with Google Assistant, time and energy is never wasted so you can focus more on the things that matter most. Co-engineered with Intel as part of the Project Athena innovation program, the Galaxy Chromebook passed rigorous testing to achieve the program's experience targets and hardware specifications, ensuring it consistently delivers the responsiveness, instant wake, and battery life that ambitious people need to focus from anywhere. The speed and efficiency of Galaxy Chromebook is powered by the latest 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor along with Intel Wi-Fi 6, so everything you do is fast, smooth and uninterrupted.
A Seamless Experience, Run on Chrome OS

Building on Samsung's Galaxy Computing vision, Galaxy Chromebook elevates the computing experience, bringing the best mobile features into a PC form factor with the power to enhance productivity. Thanks to Google Drive functionality, files automatically sync across Android devices, so you can access all your documents, all the time—and never have to worry about being away from your computer or leaving your phone at home.

And with the Click-to-Call and Messaging apps, you can use all your favorite Samsung smartphone features directly on your laptop. With Instant Tethering, boot times as fast as six seconds, and automatic updates that run in the background, Galaxy Chromebook is always ready for action, even when you're running on tight deadlines.

"For years, students have come to love Chrome OS in classrooms around the world—but today, Chromebooks are being used for so much more, by the younger generation and working-professionals alike," said Kan Liu, Senior Director of Product Management at Google. "As we see the demand for premium Chromebook experiences rise, we are investing more and more with partners like Samsung to build the next generation of flagship Chromebook product innovations and offerings."

Availability
Galaxy Chromebook will be available in Fiesta Red and Mercury Gray in Q1 2020, starting at $999.99.

I guess we'll soon see if this will work as well for Google as it did for Apple with their school classroom marketing campaign a couple decades ago. Which Google happily and quickly took over.

Wth, I paid $799 for my laptop and $199 on top of that to replace the HDD with a 256GB SSD. So you see, $999 for a Chromebook will never be a good deal for me.
