Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 is finally here

Back in January, we told you about Samsung's Galaxy Chromebook 2, including its specifications. This successor to the original is notable for being much more affordable while still being elegant and beautiful. And yes, Fiesta Red is still available as a color option -- along with the less-fun Mercury Gray.

Today, this Chrome OS convertible laptop with a 13.3-inch QLED touchscreen display finally becomes available for purchase. Pricing starts at just $549, and for a limited time, you will also get a $30 gift card to use on a future purchase, such as a laptop bag, mouse, or other accessory.

There are two models from which to choose; the top model is powered by a 10th Gen Intel Core i3, has 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage, while the lesser version has a Celeron processor, 4GB RAM, and just 64GB of storage.

Which should you buy? Well, the top model is $699 and the lesser costs $549. In other words, there is just a $150 difference between the two. If you can swing it, you should absolutely splurge on the superior model. Not only will you get better performance now, but it should be usable for a longer period of time too.

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 is available from Best Buy immediately. You can get the $549 Celeron model here and the superior Core i3 variant here. Both can be had in the aforementioned Fiesta Red or Mercury Gray.
