Back in January during CES 2017, Samsung announced a new laptop in the form of the Chromebook Pro. Then earlier this month the laptop was finally available for purchase, but if for whatever reason you prefer making your purchases from the Google Store, you’ll be pleased to learn that you’ll now be able to purchase the laptop from Google.

Now if you’re wondering why would you purchase from the Google Store when there are other options available, it is because purchasing directly from Google will result in $20 credit being added to your Google Play Store account. This means that you’ll be able to use that credit towards Android apps, movies, music, books, and so on.

In case you’re learning about the Samsung Chromebook Pro for the first time, here’s a quick recap on what you can expect. The laptop will come with a 2400×1600 display and will be accompanied by a custom hexa-core ARM-based processor. We’re also looking at 4GB of RAM, a couple of USB-C ports, an SD card reader, a headphone jack, and of course it will come with Chrome OS.

So far reviews of the laptop have been pretty positive with regards to the design, but the reviews about it running Android apps aren’t that great, with some reviews claiming that running Android apps on the Chromebook Pro felt slower compared to running it on a phone. In any case the laptop is priced at $449 so if you’re interested then head on over to Google’s website for the details.
