Samsung Chromebook 3 is running Google’s Chrome OS and is a budget product. In fact, this is a very cheap Chromebook, and is also extremely portable. The notebook runs with a very compact 11.6-inch screen, and is impressively slim and lightweight.
This specific Chromebook is used in schools, and it is definitely makes a great model for students, as it is very reasonably priced, along with being convenient to slip in a backpack to carry around – it is 17.9mm thick and weighs only 1.18kg.
The Samsung Chromebook 3 is also firmly built, and is capable of taking a few knocks, which is handy in a classroom environment, or certainly anywhere for that matter.
Battery life: The battery offers up to 11 hours of longevity, and Samsung further claims that the power pack is engineered so the battery capacity does not drop away sharply after a few years of using the laptop.
Hardware spec: The spec of this machine is basic, and comprises an Intel Celeron processor, plus some models have just 2GB of RAM. As Chrome OS is built to be so undemanding, though, the Chromebook 3 is still fine for your everyday light computing usage.
Storage story: As with several bargain basement Chromebooks, there is 16GB of eMMC storage. Chrome OS is designed with low amounts of drive space in mind, and for users to avail themselves of cloud storage as well as the local drive.
If you want a convenient, well-built and logically tough Chromebook for very less money, then you cannot do much better than this Samsung offering. It has some neat features such as a spill-resistant keyboard, and an amazingly decent build quality at this price bracket.
