It’s been roughly three weeks since Samsung quietly unveiled the Galaxy Chromebook 2 360, and the company is now ready to add this new notebook to its lineup in the USA. Samsung announced that the Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 will go on sale in the United States today, April 15, for a starting price of $429.99.

Samsung is touting the Chromebook 2 360 as a companion fit for students. Thanks to its 360-degree hinge, the laptop can double as a tablet. Samsung claims it had tested the Chromebook 2 360 in a wide range of environments, so it can “withstand the unpredictability of student life.”

According to Samsung, the Chromebook 2 360 is “built to be sturdy, durable, and shock-resistant.” At least compared to the average Chromebook. It’s not like Samsung’s device has an IP rating or MIL-grade protection, but the company seems confident in its design. The keyboard is spill-resistant, though only according to Samsung’s internal testing, so no additional warranty applies in case of water damage.

Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 spec overview

Samsung has equipped its new Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 with an Intel Celeron N4500 CPU featuring Intel UHD graphics. Customers have two memory options: 4/8GB LPDDR4x; 64/128GB e.MMC.

The device features a 12.4-inch WQXGA (2560 x 1600) LED touchscreen. The bezels are relatively thin and accommodate an HD 8MP (720p) camera.

Samsung’s new 360 Chromebook offers Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity, with optional LTE capabilities. It’s powered by a 45.5Wh battery and ships with a 45W USB-C adaptor.

The notebook is lightweight and tips the scales at 1.28Kg. Ports include 2x USB-C, 1x USB 3.2, 1x microSD slot, 1x 3.5mm headphone port, a Nano Security Slot, and a Nano-SIM slot. The latter is reserved for the Galaxy Chromebook 2 variant with LTE connectivity.
