Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Chromebook 2 earlier this year during CES 2021. The company’s latest Chrome OS-based laptop went on pre-orders last month in the US, and now, it is available for purchase from Best Buy and Samsung.

Compared to last year’s model, the $1,000 Galaxy Chromebook with a 4K AMOLED display, the new laptop is quite affordable. The Galaxy Chromebook 2’s pricing starts at $549.99 for the Intel Celeron variant and goes as high as $699.99 for the Intel Core i3 variant. The laptop is available in two colors: Fiesta Red and Mercury Gray.
