Samsung Chromebook 3

Build and Screen

Samsung Chromebook 3 looks like a notebook you can rely on judging from the build. The body is made of reinforced metal to enable it stand up to rugged, on-the-road usage. In spite of the material used, the laptop is relatively lightweight at slightly over 1 kg.

The Chromebook 3 sports an 11.6-inch diagonal screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is the minimum one would expect on any notebook these days.

Hardware

Under the hood, Samsung Chromebook 3 is equipped with an Intel Celeron N3050 processor, the speed of which is not known at this time. The CPU is paired with 2 GB of RAM, upgradeable to a maximum of 4 GB. The level of performance you should expect with this configuration is entry-level class.

Onboard storage capacity is a measly 16 GB, which means you should not expect to store a lot of stuffs on this one. You will have to rely on a microSD card for your storage needs.

Miscellaneous Specs

As would be expected of this sort of laptop, Samsung Chromebook 3 will run on Google’s free, browser-based Chrome operating system, which in part explains the low internal storage capacity. Its South Korean maker promises an amazing battery life of up to 11 hours on a single charge, just about what the Lenovo 100S Chromebook offers.

The Chrome OS notebook features superfast Wi-Fi 802.11ac connectivity. Bluetooth 4.0 is also available for wireless connectivity. The Chromebook 3 offers a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, an audio jack and an HDMI port.

Samsung Chromebook 3 is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. Samsung Chromebook 3 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N40,000 to N80,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
