Samsung launches the Galaxy Chromebook Go, LTE version coming soon

Samsung has announced another new Chromebook as part of its portfolio: the Galaxy Chromebook Go. This is an entry-level Chrome OS-powered laptop, and it’s significantly more affordable than the Galaxy Chromebook 2 it launched earlier this year.

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go features an Intel Celeron N4500 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of eMMC storage. It has a 14-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution. That’s not the sharpest out there, but it’s par for the course in this price range. As for power, there’s a 42Whr battery, which Samsung claims will last you 12 hours on a charge.

You also get all the basics: a 720p webcam, stereo speakers, and a built-in microphone. For ports, you get two USB Type-C ports, one USB Type-A, an SD card reader, and a 3.5mm combo audio jack.

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go comes in two flavors: Wi-Fi-only or LTE. The Wi-Fi model costs $299.99 (excluding any trade-in discounts), and you can buy it right now from Samsung’s website. The LTE model will be available in the coming weeks from AT&T and Verizon, but pricing hasn’t been announced yet.

    That Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go features an Intel Celeron N4500 processor along with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage. It has stereo speakers and it runs the lightweight Chrome OS, making it a good option for younger students.

On that note, AT&T also announced that it will carry the Samsung Galaxy Book Go 5G. This is a version of the Galaxy Book Go that’s already available, but it actually has a big advantage. While the Galaxy Book Go runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2, the 5G version comes with a Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2. That gets you 5G connectivity, of course, but also much better performance overall.

Based on our experience with the Galaxy Book Go, it’s a very compelling product for its price. It has a Full HD display and a decently powerful chipset. Plus, having an ARM processor has advantages like instant wake and always-on connectivity, which you can’t get on Intel-based PCs at this price. However, we don’t yet know how much the 5G version will cost when it’s available. If you’re fine with just the Wi-Fi variant, you can buy it right now from Samsung’s website.
