Samsung announces new 13.3", 11.6" Chromebooks

If you thought that the Galaxy Note 3 was about as far as Samsung would go with faux leather, than you don’t know Samsung. The company today announced its new Chromebook 2 that has the stuff slathered all over its display lid.
The 13.3” Chromebook 2 has a full HD display, and is powered by a 2.1GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor that is paired with 4GB of RAM. Other features include 16GB of onboard storage, an HDMI port, two USB ports (one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0), a 720p webcam, and a microSD reader.

Samsung says that the new 3-pound Chromebook 2 is good for 8.5 hours on a charge, which is about mid-pack when it comes to Chromebooks.
For those that prefer a slightly smaller device, there is also a 2.43-pound 11.6” model that will be priced at $319. According to The Verge, this model will use a slightly downclocked version of the processor used in its big brother, will feature a 136x768 display, and will have 8 hours of battery life.

The 13” Chromebook 2 will be available in white and black; the 11” model will only be available in grey. Both models will ship in April.
