Anyone interested in the Samsung Chromebook Pro?

Glad I didn't purchase the HP G5 touch chromebook. Hopefully this one from Samsung will not have any issues with the battery.
  • 12.3-inch touchscreen display with a screen resolution of 2,400 x 1,600 and an aspect ratio of 3:2
  • ARM 2 GHz hexa-core processor 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
  • up to 10 hours of battery life
  • weighs 2.38 pounds and is 0.5-inch thin
  • stylus

The only negative is the slight premium of $499 USD and storage seems to be eMMC and not a faster SSD.

Good Morning
Hmmm, a lot of it seems like overkill.

I got my elderly mother a Chromebook to replace her old HP Windows laptop and I've been getting less questions and help requests, as all she does is browser news sites, sport sites and Youtube. It's fast and all she really needs.

For the price, its too close to a tablet which some people may find more useful. Still a interesting product.

Guessing it'll be $650 Cdn, I may consider once it drops to $500 tax-in. There are people who are willing to spend $500 on a Chromebook, but $650 + tax is a bit too much for me I think

too much screen, a bit too little CPU/RAM. I don't know if I'd need a pen. Never use one before. The new Asus Flip 2 seems a much more balanced fit for me: m3 Skylake CPU, 8GB of RAM, 1080p screen.

^700 euro (speculated pricing) is too much though
