Samsung’s latest Chromebook Pro was a masterpiece and topped the list of Chromebooks released last year. The 12.3-inch display with a resolution of 2400x1600p stole the hearts of many customers. The internals completed it as well. However, one major complaint when it came to the Chromebook Pro was definitely its keyboard. Many have complained regarding the keyboard affecting its portability and the fact that it isn’t backlit. It appears that Samsung has remedied the problem by updating the Chromebook Pro with a new backlit keyboard.
The updated version is known as the "Samsung Chromebook Pro with Backlit Keyboard" and can be spotted under the list of products on Samsung’s website. It appears that only the keyboard has been changed with all specifications remaining exactly the same. The internals are exactly the same which isn’t really a bad thing but it would have been nice to see at least a bump in the CPU considering that the laptop has a Core m3. This means you get a Core m3 with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage in 2018 for $599. A little hard to justify its price point.
It’s hard to recommend the Chromebook Pro even with its updated backlit keyboard. What’s shocking is that it is being offered without a drop in its price, making it not so affordable. Would you purchase the updated Chromebook Pro? Let us know in the comments section below!
