Samsung has revealed that its new Chromebook 2 devices – complete with faux leather designs – will be available to buy in the UK from the start of May.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
The black 11.6-inch version of the device will be available to UK buyers from May Day itself, but if you wanted a larger-screened model – or a white 11.6-inch model – you’ll have to wait until they reach retailers on May 12. In the US, the devices cost $319.99 for the smaller model and $399.99 for the 13.3-inch unit. We’ve not had confirmation of the UK-specific pricing as yet, but we’d expect them to be around the same figures. (Update: We’ve had the UK prices confirmed by a company spokesperson as £329.00 for the 13.3-inch model and £249 for the 11.6 inch)
Aside of screen size (and overall dimensions/weight), the key difference between the two is that the 13.3-inch model offers a full 1080P display, whereas the smaller model offers a max resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The larger model also has twice as much RAM and a slightly quicker processor clock speed.
