I'm not trying to provide a full review on this laptop...
but I decided to keep the Chromebook Pro
Samsung Chromebook Pro On Sale for about $519 - Regularly $549
Samsung Chromebook Plus On Sale for about $406 - Regular about $440
Both computers are exactly alike except: Pro: M3 Processor, Color: Black Plus: ARM Processor, Color: Silver
An important thing for me was... could I find a light-weight "device" that was powerful enough to Design a website using Webflow ON MY LAP... and do some basics tasks like surfing / mail / watching a YouTube video / etc
Both of these Chromebooks did what I wanted them to do. The Plus just a little slower... and some system stutter would occur if I had to many tabs open. Around 10... maybe 15 ?
I haven't seen any stutter with the Pro model... and it remains pretty snappy in speed... with 30+ open.
2400 x 1600 Screen... the screen is incredible. With my eyes though... I have some difficulty seeing this resolution on a 12" screen. Instead, I use the 1800 x 1200 resolution - and it works with Webflow Designer. I had thought Webflow's minimum resolution was 1920... but guess not.
360 degree design... can convert from laptop to tablet... though in tablet - it's not as comfortable to use as an iPad or Surface.
Extremely light. Easy to carry around.
I had some difficulty with Wifi using the Plus version. Have not had 1 issue with the Pro version.
As mentioned... I have 2 laptops... a MacBook Pro and a Surface Pro. They cost about $2000 each.
I purchased both the Plus and the Pro Chromebooks.... I am returning the Plus Laptop... and keeping the Pro version.
If you need a new laptop... you might want to take a look at one of the these. They are considerably cheaper - and very capable. The only issue I came across was editing images... which I can do at home on a different system.
But for travel - this Chromebook worked flawlessly.
The only thing I found disappointing about this laptop... was it come with a back lit keyboard. I'm guessing they will make it back lit in the future.
It comes with a pen as well. I've never really used a pen before... it's a nice feature to have (for my needs).
Apparently it's not comparable to a Surface Pen... and others in that league.
but if just needed it for note taking.... it worked for me.
I'm considering a Chromebook as well. I'm working on a 27" iMac but it would be nice just grab a portable and work at meetings and maybe at clients office, or at vacation like you. I don't know if you are familiar with these online very capable programs.
