New Samsung Chromebook 2 officially announced, prices start at $319.99
Samsung today announced two Chromebooks, both part of a refreshed Chromebook 2 series. The new Samsung Chromebooks come with an “elegant stitched design” - which, as revealed yesterday, means that they have the same faux-leather styling that we can see on Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO tablets.

Developed with students and teachers in mind, the new Chrome OS-based Samsung netbooks come in two sizes, one sporting a 11.6-inch display (1366 x 768 pixels), and another one offering a larger 13.3-inch screen (Full HD, 1920 x 1080 pixels). Both feature HDMI, USB, MicroSD card reader, 720p web cameras, 4GB of RAM, and 16GB iNAND Flash drives. The 13.3-inch Chromebook 2 is powered by a 2.1GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor, includes a battery that can last up to 8.5 hours, and is "optimized for Google+ Hangouts messaging and video calling" - since it boasts high-power speakers with enhanced audio quality, plus a "noise reducing array microphone". The 11.6-inch model has a 1.9GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor and a battery good enough for up to 8 hours of work.

Both the 11.6-inch and the 13.3-inch Chromebook 2 will be released in the US in April. The small model comes in white and black, and has a suggested retail price of $319.99, while the 13.3-inch one will be a bit more expensive - $399.99 - coming in “luminous titan gray.”
