Samsung’s first ever Galaxy Chromebook is wafer-thin and damn powerful

Almost as tasty as the chocolate

Samsung has lifted the lid on its first ever Galaxy Chromebook ($999) at CES 2020, and it’s quite the looker. The striking 2-in-1 device is the thinnest Samsung Chromebook ever released at just 9.9mm thick, but despite its wafer-thin form should be able to withstand the wear-and-tear of working life thanks to a durable aluminium shell that comes in vibrant ‘Fiesta Red’ or the more subtle ‘Mercury Gray.’ It’s no slouch in tech terms, either, and packs a 13.3in 4K AMOLED touch screen display, the latest 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, Wi-Fi 6 support, up to 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD at the top end. A built-in pen, fingerprint scanner, and a pair of capable stereo speakers add a little more premium gloss, and should making handling certain tasks that little bit easier.

I’m a freelance games and technology journalist currently mashing my keyboard in the name of fine institutions like Stuff, where you'll usually find me waxing lyrical about the latest mobile morsels. I've also been known to cook up some decidedly delicious reviews from time to time, and was once dubbed 'the games industry's answer to Nigella Lawson' by someone probably somewhere.
