Samsung’s high-end Chromebook Professional was once one of the vital higher Chromebooks launched remaining 12 months. The 12.three” 2400×1600 show was once probably the greatest I would ever observed in a pc, and the Core m3 was once a greater than ok bump over the ARM-wielding Chromebook Plus. The one actual court cases I ever heard or had with the units had been associated with the keyboard. Commute was once horrible, and it wasn’t backlit. Smartly, Samsung has simply fastened a kind of issues. 

The day gone by Samsung dropped a fairly up to date model of the Chromebook Professional onto its website online, indexed as “Samsung Chromebook Professional with Backlit Keyboard.” As far as we will be able to inform from the specs indexed, the whole lot is the same between the 2 fashions, save the addition of a backlit keyboard. That is a little disappointing, because it manner in 2018 you get the similar 2017-era Core m3, the similar 4GB of RAM, and the similar 32GB of garage, for a similar $599 value.

We’re going to have to look when we get an opportunity to play with one ourselves, however except the keyboard commute may be considerably advanced, It can be onerous to suggest the up to date Chromebook Professional with no value drop over different units that can release this 12 months. Pushing the similar product for a similar value a 12 months later is one thing I would be expecting from LG, now not Samsung.
