Last year Samsung launched the Chromebook Pro laptop which is one of the higher-end Chromebooks in the market today. However there were some gripes that some reviewers had with the laptop, such as the travel distance on the keyboard and also the fact that it wasn’t backlit.
These are not necessarily deal breakers, but would have been nice if Samsung had thought about that during the development process. The good news is that it looks like they might have because Samsung has since announced a slightly updated Chromebook Pro that comes with a backlit keyboard.
Unfortunately that’s where the “update” ends because apart from the addition of the backlit keyboard, the rest of the Chromebook Pro’s specs remain identical to last year’s model. This means that users can expect the same 12.3-inch 2400×1600 display, an Intel Core m3 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
However if you are looking for a new Chromebook, especially if you might have need for one with a stylus, we suppose at $599 it’s not that tough of a pill to swallow. For those who are interested in getting their hands on it or to learn more, you can head on over to Samsung’s website for the details.
