Expand your capabilities with the 12.3" 32GB Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Chromebook Plus from Samsung, which features a built-in stylus that you can use to draw, take notes, and interact with apps and games. When not needed, simply slide it back into its dedicated slot so you won't lose it. Powered by a dual- and quad-core ARM processors and 4GB of 1866 MHz LPDDR3 RAM, the Chromebook Plus can efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs. Like most Chromebooks, storage space is limited, and this system is equipped with 32GB of eMMC storage. Should you need more, you can connect external storage solutions using its USB ports as well as its microSD card reader.

Its 12.3" display, driven by integrated graphics, has a 2400 x 1600 resolution for crisp and clear pictures. Furthermore, with multi-touch support, you'll be able to utilize touch gestures and functions to improve its accessibility and your productivity. A 360° hinge provides you with multiple viewing options, allowing you to adjust it to fit your preference or current application. Other integrated features include a webcam, speakers, microphones, and a 3.5 mm headphone and microphone combo jack. The operating system installed is Chrome OS.

Please note that in order to take full advantage of Chrome OS, you will need to be connected to the Internet.

Chrome OS
Using Linux as a base, Google designed Chrome OS to work exclusively with web applications. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, which greatly resembles the Google Chrome web browser. Chrome OS was built for people who spend a majority, if not all, of their time on the computer connected to the Internet. The only application that comes installed on Chrome OS is a special Google Chrome web browser with an integrated media player and file manager. All other applications are accessed by adding apps from the Google Chrome Web Store. Since Chrome OS relies entirely on Google's web apps and access to Google's services, it is highly recommended that you connect to the Internet to optimize your Chrome OS experience.
Write, Draw, and Get Creative
Take notes, draw, and let your imagination loose with the built-in stylus. The stylus doesn't need to be charged and has its own slot so you can tuck it away when it's not in use.
Android Apps on Google Play
The Chromebook Plus comes with the latest Chrome OS and Android apps. You'll have access to messaging apps, games, social media, and much more.
360° Hinge
Whether you're working, watching a movie, or drawing, the 360° hinge lets you adjust the display to a better viewing angle for whatever you're doing.
Thin, Light, and Fully Metal
Measuring 0.55" at the thickest point and weighing only 2.51 pounds, the Chromebook Plus was made to be easily portable so you can take it wherever you go. It's also has a full metal design for additional durability.
10 Hour Battery Life
When you're out and about, you need a device that'll keep up with you. The Chromebook Plus can last up to 10 hours on a single charge and recharges via its USB Type-C port.
High-Resolution Touchscreen
Enjoy high-resolution content with the Chromebook Plus and its 2400 x 1600 Gorilla Glass 3 touchscreen display. It also has a brightness level of 400 nits for crisp and clear viewing day or night, inside or outside.
USB Type-C
USB Type-C features a reversible connector so you can connect cables with either end up. It also supports charging, data transfer, and 4K monitor support.

    12.3" 32GB Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Chromebook Plus is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 66.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best Chromebook today The Samsung Chromebook Plus has finally made other devices unnecessary for me. Because it is thin, light, has a great screen and can run my Android apps, I no longer need my Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. Because of Chrome OS and the ability to be used as a laptop, I no longer need my old Chromebook. It is very well made and is a premium device. The build quality is excellent. I generally type emails, work on documents and play a few games. It does everything quickly. Web pages render speedily. Touch screen and track pad work well. The only thing missing is a back lit keyboard. Still, it is a beautiful laptop/tablet that looks like it costs much, much more than it does.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Chromebook Yet! I have owned many chromebook devices over the past 3 years. I sold my last windows device the surface pro so I could purchase this device. BEST decision I have made. Screen quality is the best I have seen on any laptop. Keyboard is full sized grate key trave, glass trackpad is great. Touch screen is amazing. Pen is useful. Android apps are going to make chrome os a force in mobile computing, That is what this chromebook is so successful at, mobile computing! The 3:2 aspect ratio is great, I am use to 16:9 and I prefer this. The arm processor is really fast and efficient. Samsung Chromebook Plus= Home Run.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not Great This is my first time using chrome book and I must say that being able to use apps from google play makes this thing very useful. I can do almost anything I can do on my android tablet but with a much cleaner interface. The design is top notch and screams premium with all metal body and a beautiful screen. The only thing missing ..... perks of owning other Samsung product. I mean I have a s7 edge but there is no text message syncing, no answering a call from your chrome book when the phone rings, no instant photo transfer between phone and chrome book. I would think Samsung would does something nice like this to stand out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great device for 21st century users Disclaimer - if possible I would have given this a 4.5 overall. Not quite "5".! The physical design is great. I love the screen. Love the flexible 'convertible' design (with some caveats below). The keyboard is not a full-size, mechanical switch keyboard (duh!), but it's certainly sufficient for me. I've been using a Chromebook for a couple of years as a personal device to tote along with my corporate anchor (laptop). That, and the fact that I'm a "Google" user, means that I'm pretty comfortable with the Chromebook as a device. The test was to see if I could use the features of this Chromebook Plus as a primary device. The Android apps are great. I see occasional issues with some of the apps scaling to fit the larger screen, but for the most part they work as advertised. A few of the Chromebook apps don't work perfectly with the touch screen. I haven't really used the pen/stylus much. Overall - I use this Chromebook everyday. I set it up tent-style to read the news while I'm eating breakfast. I use it periodically throughout the day to read email and/or news setup as a laptop while I'm working on my corporate Windows laptop or my personal Linux desktop. In the evening i'm reading with the device in 'tablet' mode. Definitely happy with it. Will probably move my wife from a Windows laptop to a Chromebook Plus sometime in the next few months

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing device, wirth fez downsides I'd been using an iPad Pro until I bought this Chromebook Plus, and I realy loved Samsung + Google option. Talking about the hardware, it's almost perfect: premium design, finish and build quality, better than Macbook's; amazing screen; fast; good battery life achieving maybe more than 8hs on real use; and realy great input devices. The downsides are about the location of the speakets and the audio, that could be a bit louder; there is no auto screen rotation neither auto brightness control; and the pen is not as useful as the Galaxy Note one's at least out of tge box. The Play Store support still a kind of Beta. A few apps are not compatible and many other don behaves well on resized windows. Still a lot of work to do, but by now I think it promises a great future integrating tablet and laptop funcionalits, better than Microsoft or Apple did.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after a month's use. Samsung unable to repair it :( I would strongly recommend NOT BUYING a Samsung Chromebook Plus. I purchased mine new in mid-March. In late-April the video cart went bad. Samsung had me ship it to them and for the past six weeks they have been giving me the run around as to why they haven't fixed it and shipped it back to me. The last word was that they were unable to fix it and would be shipping me a new replacement computer but they haven't been able to tell me when this will ship. They keep on saying that a representative of their Executive Relations Department would call me at a specific day and time and they do not call. Absolute piece of junk from a worthless company.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice product Overall this is a nice product. Love the design and the sleek metal case. Nice and lightweight for using on your lap. I bought it for watching movies/videos, which it is a perfect size for that. I like that I can use it tent style without it falling over. Unfortunately, this also brings up the weakness. The sound doesn't seem very loud or robust to me. I actually have to connect a Bluetooth speaker to hear the sound clearly. One last thing...the Wifi connection is spotty. I am constantly turning it on and off to reconnect, and the signal strength is not as good as my Galaxy tab that I have in the same room.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost there... In short, the device is really amazing for the price you pay. Metal body, great resolution with the perfect productivity aspect ratio, lightweight and durable. The stylus is an amazing addition too, adding some time-passing doodling and note taking to add more productivity and entertainment to the overall package. A bit more in depth. Screen: Compared to other laptops and Chromebooks, this device is NOT of the 16:9 aspect ratio variety. So instead of a rectangular screen, it will be more Square. When watching media, there will be large black bars on the top and bottom, but since the screen is really good, I can look past it. Just needs some getting used to. (The size is close to 1 inch on top and 1 inch on the bottom.) It is perfect for productivity since you have more screen real-estate, it also has a more tablet feel to it because of this. So tablet form and tent form are really good. It is also a touch screen, ChromeOS isn't doesn't really support it yet, but it works fine. Build/Design: Thanks to it's metal body, this device is durable. Not sure what metal it is, might be Magnesium since it is so light as well. So you can be a bit rough with it. The design is very clean and screams quality, so you don't have to be a shamed to pull this out in front of other people. The hinge is also really well build; nice and tight, so it will be a while before it gives out. Not a lot of screen shaking when speed typing. Because of the way the weight is distributed, when you angle the screen after a certain point, screen wobble be more present. Sound: The speakers are really lacking in this device. The placement of is questionable, since it is covered in tablet form, in presentation form the screen prevents the acoustics from hitting your ears properly and in laptop form it is bottom facing. In Tent form, it good because it faces you; but it is still really weak. Speed: The processor is of the ARM variety, so installing Linux will be a bit of a problem due to compatibility issues. It being an ARM processor, it is not as fast the Intel powered Chrombook Pro; that being the case, this processor was able to keep up with undergraduate computer science work. I've experienced no slow downs whatsoever, and that is with a 4 chrome tab, google docs, google play/spotify load, and Chrome Remote Desktop for remote coding. The processor also handles android apps better than the Intel variant. This is because of how android apps are coded, this difference is being patched up by Google and app makers. But there should still be a difference despite that. Keyboard/Pen: I'll say is straight out. the keyboard completely sucks on this device. It is very shallow and the backspace key is small. It is not back-light as well. The shallowness is understandable because of how thin it is, and the back space because of it's small foot print. But I've seen other thin and light laptops that can make a good keyboard, so I can't look past this. The back-lit feature, might be a turn off for some, but for me it is A-OK. So if you really need this feature, be aware this device DOES NOT have it. But all in all, despite the fact that the keyboard sucks; I look past it because of the price of the thing. The pen also has a place to be stored in, so it wont get lost easily. It also has pressure sensitivity, so drawing is bit more fun. But still, since it is a small pen, if you have big hands, it will cramp up quickly when you use it. WIFI: It can detect dual band routers, so speed is there. But the device was known to have some wifi issues before. Google/Samsung said that it will be patched, so the issues might be gone now. Battery Life: As most people already know, the manufacturer's claim for batter life is never accurate. It last me at most 7 1/2 hours with the way I use it. ( Low - Medium brightness, 4 chrome tabs, google docs, and either YouTube/spotify/google play) Ports: There are only 2 ports, both USB Type-C. So charging using either sides are good. But since there are no Type-A ports, using other peripherals will require a dongle. THERE IS a headphone jack and also expandable storage. Webcam: The webcam is decent. The mic is also decent. But it is usable for conference calls and skype interviews. Just don't keep your expectations to high. All in all, this device is so close to being the perfect Chromebook. If Samsung could fix the keyboard drawbacks and weak speakers, then it will be perfect IMO. Well, also if Google fixed the problems that ChromeOS has.
