Samsung Chromebook 2 review: A $400 laptop never looked so good

Chromebooks will never be for everyone, but assuming you're game, the 13-inch Samsung Chromebook 2 is the one we recommend. Its sharp display, stylish design, long battery life and comfortable keyboard make it worth the premium over competing models.

Pros
  • Stylish design, relatively thin and light
  • Sharp display, especially for this price
  • Comfortable keyboard and trackpad
  • Long battery life
Cons
  • Pricier than other Chromebooks
  • Performance likely weaker than soon-to-be-released Core i3 Chromebooks
  • Lack of a full-sized SD card reader will be a disappointment to some shoppers
  • Viewing angles aren't very good
