Samsung Chromebook 2 to have a Galaxy Note 3-like faux leather finish

Samsung Chromebook 2

Google and Samsung are preparing to launch a new Chromebook soon, EVleaks is suggesting. We don’t have all the details yet, but we do know this laptop will have a Galaxy Note 3-like faux leather finish and full HD screen, while getting the power from Samsung’s potent Exynos 5 Octa chip. This in turn should create a device that can work for longer periods of time and one that doesn’t require coolers.

While that sounds cool, we’re still not convinced that an ARM-based notebook can handle the large websites properly. My daily routine involves at least 5 opened tabs, some of which (like GMail and Feedly) are JavaScript-intensive, and I’m not sure this Chromebook will be up for the task. Perhaps I’m wrong, though.

In any case, I’m hoping this to be a 10-inch laptop with a rather affordable price tag. SammyHub says we’ll get all answers in the next few days; stay tuned in the meantime…
