  • Samsung's Chromebook Plus (V2) gets turbocharged with an Intel processor

Dubbed as Chromebook Plus V2, the device comes with a price tag of $499.99 (approx Rs 33,975) and it will be available starting from June 24 at Best Buy online and offline stores.

New for 2018 is an Intel Celeron 3965Y, replacing the ARM processor Samsung previously used.

The second-gen Samsung Chromebook Plus runs Chrome OS out-of-the-box, and sports a 12.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) touchscreen display with a peak brightness of 300 nits. The Chromebook Plus V2 also features a 39Wh battery. It's a little heavier than its predecessor at 2.93 pounds, but it comes with the same slim design.

Paul Manafort Is Going to Jail
When Manafort was first indicted, the White House said the charges had nothing to do with the president and the 2016 campaign. Manafort was led out of the courtroom by security officers. "It is not about the conduct of the Office of Special Counsel".

As you may recall, Samsung announced the original Chromebook Plus-along with the physically identical Chromebook Pro-about a year and a half ago.

You can't detach the display from the keyboard base, but the Chromebook Plus (V2) is technically a 2-in-1 convertible computer capable of folding into a tablet mode... of sorts.

The Chromebook Plus V2 doesn't stray too far from the original Plus model, including a built-in pen and a screen that can flip over to tablet mode, while inside it has the same 4GB RAM and 32GB built-in storage. There are stereo speakers built in to the Chromebook Plus V2, and the curved cap keyboard can withstand spills up to 60cc. That content-consumption-biased panel still has a fairly high pixel density at 181 PPI, but it nevertheless represents a downgrade from the old model's 2400x1600 screen with a more productivity-friendly, Surface-style 3:2 aspect ratio. Write a note, sketch out an idea, edit a document, sign a document, or even use the pen to magnify small text and capture carefully cropped screenshots.

Trump puts 25% tariff on Chinese goods
China would also cancel agreements it had reached with the USA during previous discussions over the penalties, it said. In response to Trump's decision, the Chinese government said it would levy tariffs against US products and services.

The new Samsung Chromebook Plus will cost $499, $50 more than its predecessor.

The stylus can handle the pressure up to 4,000 level of sensitivity. While some may only think of low-priced entries when they hear the word Chromebook, devices like Google's own Pixelbook show that there is a market for premium devices running Chrome OS.
