What do you get when two tech giants team up to build a laptop? What you get is a beautifully crafted Chromebook for the next generation. The next generation Chromebook from tow of the world’s biggest tech companies is here—the Chromebook Plus and Chromebook Pro. Both products are designed to present consumers with the best Chrome operating system experience ever.

Flexibility is a common feature of both products; the Chromebook Plus and Pro are designed to be flexible—to allow you transform the “Chromebook on demand.” Built with a 360-degree rotating touchscreen performing both as a notebook, and an ultra-mobile premium tablet; consumers are in for one of the most advanced laptops that can be found anywhere.

The Chromebook Plus is the cheaper of the two products, and uses an ARM processor. The Chromebook Pro on the other hand, features an Intel Core MR processor; and are both very fast.

Both laptops share a lot of similarities; having 12.3-inch displays with 2,400 x 1,600 screen resolution. Memory shouldn’t be much of a problem because four gigs of RAM and 32GB of internal storage is something to give you some cheer. The battery life too isn’t something to worry about; at eight hours rating, you can relax and do a lot of things comfortably.

Both the Chromebook Plus and the Chromebook Pro come with a built-in pen, which is embedded on the side of the device for secure storage and easy access. This built-in pen offers a lot of comfort and flexibility; including ability to easily take notes and capture on-screen content. According to Samsung; “the pen is ready to use out of the box with pre-installed Google Keep for notetaking and Samsung ArtCanvas for drawing. The newly developed pen has a 0.7mm pen tip and pressure sensitivity for precise screen capturing.”

The new Chromebook is more than just a laptop; it offers you an unforgettable experience anytime you are using it. It connects you to a world of rich experience including apps, games and media; all accessible via the Google Play Store. With a stunning Quad HD 2400×1600 resolution display made of durable Gorilla Glass 3, with a 3:2 aspect ratio, you can do a lot of things including work, game or binge-watch.

For enhanced connectivity, the Chromebook has now been upgraded with two USB-C ports. This is great for 4K video streaming; enabling it to produce high quality video and gaming from the laptop’s connected 4k displays.

Chromebooks are very easy to handle; explaining the reason why they are so popular and the second most popular PC operating system in the US and in Q1 of 2016, topped Macs in overall shipments. It has virus protection and automatic updates are built-in, so you don’t have to manage your computer.

Starting at $449, the Chromebook will be available at major retailers in February 2017.
