Video: Samsung Chromebook Series 5 Reviewed


Has the Samsung Chromebook gotten better with age?

That was the question for the CRN Test Center, which looked at the second generation of Samsung's Chromebook Series 5. The latest Chromebook, which runs on Google's Chrome OS, features a 1.3GHz dual-core Intel Celeron 867, giving the affordable notebook more horsepower.

There are more improvements as well, including twice the amount of memory – 4 GB – as the first-generation Chromebook. The new Chromebook also comes with better video quality, thanks to Intel's HD graphics processor. The OS itself also comes with some new and improved features, such as enhanced multitasking.
