Samsung Series 3 WiFi Chromebook Overview

We’ve got smartphones, tablets, bigger tablets, netbooks, notebooks and ultrabooks; do we really need another portable device? The answer would be no, but luckily, the Chromebook is not “another portable device”, but rather a different type of ultrabook.

The Samsung Series 3 Chromebook still fits in the ultrabook category because it comes in an ultra-portable form; with an 11.6-inch display and weighing only 1.1 kg, it’s one of the most portable machines out there. What really sets it apart from other devices is its operating system: Chrome OS. There’s a lot of controversy around it, as it’s an operating system that relies heavily on an Internet connection, but after all, that’s the whole purpose of having an ultrabook – carrying around and accessing the Internet from everywhere. On the bright side, a major advantage of Chrome OS is that it is very light, being far less demanding than Microsoft Windows, which results in lower hardware requirements and thus lower power consumption.

Speaking of hardware, the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook is powered by an Exynos 5250 Processor, 2GB of RAM and a 16GB solid state drive. Normally, these specs would be far from impressive, but due to the lightweight nature of Chrome OS, the Chromebook runs incredibly fast, everything being smooth and cursive. The solid state drive has a huge performance impact, allowing the device to start or shut down in only a few seconds. Battery life is more than decent too, lasting up to 6.5 hours on a single charge.
