Samsung’s new octa-core Chrome OS laptops are now available for pre-order for $320 and up. The notebooks should start shipping in late April.

Update: Make that late May.

The Samsung Chromebook 2 is powered by an 8-core Samsung Exynos 5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. It comes in two models. For $320 you can get one with an 11.6 inch display, while $400 buys you a 13.3 inch model.

The extra money for the 13.3 inch model also gets you a faster CPU, a higher-resolution display, and a few other perks. But that model is also a bit heavier.

  1. The SOC in the 13.3″ version should be the Exynos 5422 (at least I have never heard of an Exynos 5800)

      1. I see. Possibly, they have changed numbering since the new Octas can actually run 8 cores simultaneously.

        It is in fact more logical to name it 5800 with the 8 cores than 54xx.
