Google Classroom-ready, just in case
We're all hopeful that the next school year will be live-and-in-person from Labor Day will the start of summer. But after this pandemic, it's hard not to appreciate a laptop that's set up for remote learning should the need arise. Teachers and students know how much easier it is to be prepared.
The sleek, incredibly thin Samsung Chromebook 4 is Google Classroom–ready with an HD camera for Google Chat video calls, a USB-A and USB-C port and an impressive battery life of up to 13 hours.
"...This Chromebook is perfect for work or school," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "It's super fast and it also looks great. I love the size — it's small and light, which allowed me to work in bed or on-the-go...I would definitely recommend it!"
Powerful and fully loaded
A true workhorse with a brilliant 11.6-inch HD display, 4GB of memory and 32GB of on-board storage (plus 200GB of Google One storage included), this SamsungChromebook has the strength of Intel's mighty Dual-Core Celeron N4000 Processor behind it.
It runs the latest version of ChromeOS, so you know you'll get speedy results. And unlike Windows 10 or macOS laptops, with long loading times and complicated app downloads, this SamsungChromebook is easy to use. You just log in to your Gmail account via Google Chrome and you’re good to go. This Chromebook can even access and download ChromeOS and Android apps if you like.
"...I needed a computer with quick access to the internet and a computer that my kids can use for school, and I decided to go with the Chromebook," said another five-star reviewer. "I am very happy with it! The speed is very fast and it loads any website very quickly..."
If you need a simple, reliable, easy-to-use laptop, it has arrived — at a price that can't be beat. The Samsung Chromebook 4, down from $230 to just $129, is a steal. Grab it before word gets out — and give yourself a little "back to school" thrill, no matter how many years out you may be.
