Samsung’s Galaxy Chromebook Go is available now for $299

Samsung’s new entry-level Chrome OS laptop, the $299 Galaxy Chromebook Go, is available now on Samsung’s website and other retailers. Only Wi-Fi models will be available on Thursday, but Samsung plans to offer LTE models in the coming weeks.

The modest price of the Galaxy Chromebook Go seems to be reflected in its features. The 14-inch 1366 x 768 HD display is definitely a step down from the 4K OLED panel found on the $549 Galaxy Chromebook 2. It also works with Intel Celeron N4500 processor and 4GB RAM. The world is on fire, but it should be enough for everyday Chrome usage.

The Galaxy Chromebook Go has a USB-C port and a USB-A 3.2 port.

Samsung claims the Galaxy Chromebook Go’s 5480mAh battery should last 12 hours on a single charge. That’s great compared to the Chromebook 2’s roughly 7-hour battery life (in our tests), but maybe it has something to do with the differences in display and processor. between the two models. Internal storage comes at 32GB (expandable with a microSD card) and the Chromebook Go includes one USB-A 3.2 port, two USB-C ports, a headphone jack and a microSD card reader.

If you’re in the market for new lightweight laptops, you can check out our Chromebook guide, but if Samsung’s Galaxy Chromebook Go speaks up (without waiting for LTE), you can get it from the Samsung store right now.
