Ideal for students or mobile workers, Samsung has released two new Chromebooks in Canada: the Chromebook 4 and the Chromebook 4+.
Both devices are light and compact, with no visible screws. The Chromebook 4 has an 11.6″ screen and weighs just 1.18 kg and the Chromebook 4+ comes equipped with a larger 15.6″ screen and weighs 1.7 kg.
Featuring military-grade durability for withstanding drops and bumps, the 4 boasts up to 12 hours of battery life and the 4+ up to 10 hours, which is long enough for a typical workday or day at school. Recharge it quickly when needed via a USB-C charger. Options include up to 32GB of storage, 4GB memory, and an Intel Celeron processor N4000.
The Chromebook 4 lineup is also equipped with Gigabit Wi-Fi capabilities, allowing you to stream high-definition content, load webpages, and transfer gigabytes of data as needed. The high-speed data transfer rate is up to 5Gbps, and you can connect either to a 4K monitor and switch to Ultra HD for presentations, gaming, or streaming movies and TV shows.
Loaded with Google goodies, you’ll get access to the Chrome browser and can download apps from the Google Play Store. You also get Google Assistant built-in for controlling the device by voice to do things like update your calendar, reply to a message, make a note, check the news, and more. Just say “Hey, Google” followed by your command to get started.
The Samsung Chromebook 4 starts at $360 and comes finished in Platinum Titan, while the Samsung Chromebook 4+ comes in Satin Grey and starts at $460.
