Samsung Chromebook :First Pen-Toting Premium hybrid

samsung-chromebook-2

Samsung Chromebook approach has so far concentrated on the budget-conscious crowd, but it’s about to change in a big, big way. Samsung Chrome Unboxed tipsters have uncovered store listings (and briefly, a landing page) for a Chromebook Pro that would cater to people require a high-end Chrome OS experience. The 12.3-inch system would not only have a Chromebook Flip-style 360-degree touchscreen barring a pen — you could turn this Google-powered laptop into an impromptu drawing tablet. The page refers to a pre-installed ArtCanvas app for creative types, and the pen would no doubt come in usable for promised Android app support.

The stylus wouldn’t be the only selling point. The Pro would come wrapped in a “full metal” case that helps it measure just 0.55 inches at its thickest point. It’d have a very sharp 2,400 x 1,600 display, also. And a six-core, 2GHz ARM processor should both help with battery life (up to 10 hours) and improve compatibility with Android apps.

If the market listings are accurate, you’d have to spend a hefty $499 to get the Samsung Chromebook Pro, which could hit as soon as October 24th. That’s a lot to spend on a Chrome OS device, especially one that doesn’t have the processing power of correspondingly premium rivals like the HP Chromebook 13. However, it might be the machine to know if you’re buying a Chromebook with Android apps in mind.
