Samsung’s latest Chromebook is powered by an Intel chip

37 sec read

Samsung may have bowed out of the European laptop market but it is not giving up on North America as yet. Earlier this year the company launched its Chromebook 2 and it came with Samsung’s own Exynos 5 Octa chipset. Now Samsung has made available a revised version which is powered by an Intel chip. The 11.6-inch Intel-powered Samsung Chromebook 2 model is available for purchase for $250.

Chromebooks continue to explode in the laptop market, which has certainly caught the attention of chip giant Intel. With many of these dirt-cheap Chrome OS notebooks being powered by ARM-based processors, there’s been thought that this new niche could threaten Intel’s bottom line. While ultimately we won’t know the impact for some time, it hasn’t stopped Chromebook makers from embracing the company’s CPUs along with ARM processors. Just yesterday, two major manufacturers dropped new Chromebook configurations featuring Intel inside. Samsung shouted the news far and wide that its Chromebook 2 will include a Celeron processor, though Dell was more discrete about adding a Core i3 version of the Chromebook 11 to its lineup.
