Samsung has introduced the Galaxy Chromebook at CES 2020, a $999 laptop with incredible hardware and specs to match. 4K AMOLED screen, 10th-gen Intel processor, a stylus, and plenty of RAM. It’s the nicest laptop we’ve seen in a long time, but that doesn’t mean you should buy it.

$1000 for a laptop that will fall out of updates in five years, plummets in resale value, and only has four hours of battery life? I already got duped by the first Chromebook Pixel. Pass.

The price of this unit is actually quite reasonable when you realize that it is offering a 13.3" 4K AMOLED display which is an industry first for laptops. When these are showcased as demo models at retail stores and people can see the displays in action I can imagine they are going to be constantly out of stock. AMOLED really is that good.

Wow, yet another pointless review of a device that is simply misunderstood. 999 is too much for a Chromebook? Lmao. No, it isn't. Not when I can potentially run android + chrome os + a Linux distro, all on the same machine, with ease. Not to mention it's made with premium parts, so I'm not sure why some mass media channel feels it knows what, albeit somewhat niche, Chromebook users are willing to pay. 999 is insanely cheap for what this device is, and can potentially do. Even with crouton(no dual-botting) running Linux is simple and easy, and I've been doing it since 2013. I did it on my very first Chromebook with no prior chrome os or Linux experience. None. So, no, it isn't difficult, it's just that pandering to the lowest common denominator, technologically ignorant and proud, mass-market media doesn't have a clue what to do with these handy Linux machines. I also love the mentioning of DRM-controlled content, which is in no way worth hitting, as if it were somehow the fault of the device, the manufacturers, or chrome os, itself. That's just the unethical way in which we allow the rich to get richer, while they steal from poor ignorant customers. If I buy a device with a 4k panel, and I stream Netflix through my Netflix account, I should be able to watch content in HDR, because that's what was paid for, right? But, nope. However, there are ways to get around these kinds of issues, and without having to just wait for chrome os to update. If you install & run a Linux distro, like Ubuntu, for example, you can circumvent the DRM issues for the most part, but again, licensing and immoral property rights are not the fault of the product or the os. It's the fault of an ignorant consumer base, a society that unknowingly allowed major corporations like Microsoft to get away with murder because the laws governing the relevant issues are made by shills and altogether technologically illiterate bafoons.

Pretty nice. And it's priced exactly right for what it offers. You can't make something as precision and sell it for less. We pay as much for a Galaxy phone. The wobbly screen might bother some. If the Pixelbook Go screen doesn't wobble, that's a big advantage. Hopefully Google will throw some sales on the Go this year. Will be interesting to see if the Galaxy blows away the Pixelbook Go.
