Samsung is offering a new discount on the Galaxy Chromebook 2 in the USA. The device was released stateside a couple of months ago, and it didn’t take long for Samsung to launch the first discounts. Now the company is at it again with a new limited-time discount for the Galaxy Chromebook 2, as well as more attractive trade-in offers that can lower the laptop’s price all the way down to $49.
Samsung is now selling the Galaxy Chromebook 2 with an Intel Celeron CPU, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage for $449, down from the full $549 retail price. Meanwhile, the Chromebook 2 variant equipped with an Intel Core i3 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage now costs $499, down from $699. The new discounts apply to both color options — Fiesta Red and Mercury Gray.
The same laptops can also cost as low as $49 and $99 with select trade-in deals.
Is the Galaxy Chromebook 2 still relevant in a post Galaxy Book world?
Well, yes. We would say that the Galaxy Chromebook 2 has remained as relevant as ever for customers who are looking for a Chromebook specifically. The base Galaxy Book model (powered by Windows 10) is not yet available for purchase, and at $999, the Galaxy Book Pro costs roughly twice as much as the Galaxy Chromebook 2.
Then again, whenever the base Galaxy Book model will be hitting the shelves, it’s rumored to do so at Chromebook prices. Early rumors suggested that this so-called Galaxy Book Go could be released for as low as $349, which might become a problem for Samsung’s Chromebook series.
But for anyone who is actually looking to buy a Chromebook and take advantage of Google’s ecosystem at its fullest, well, the Galaxy Chromebook 2 is Samsung’s best answer. Feel free to refer to the links below if you’re interested in this new limited-time discount.
