    Absolutely not. Get a "real" laptop instead...

    So, does it come with Knox-Bootloader and do you need Odin to install it?😁

    @olback I bought a real laptop for $800, then added $300 of hardware. So for same price I got 24GB ram, 1TB SSD, and i7-8750, 1050 to run my games.

    Why buy overpriced garbage when you can have overpriced TOP garbage? Buy Apple.

    @electrineer It was last year. I dunno.

    The next step up was like 300 or 400 more at that time.

    Looks stylish but it runs chrome OS. Why is chrome OS a thing? Just use widows if you want user friendliness, don't downgrade it to just a browser and mobile apps, come on

    @shoop maintenance on Chrome OS and Android is way better. Would not buy it though (just like I won't buy a $1000 phone) OS support probably ends in 3 to 4 year

    Who would buy one? Only people with more money than reason.

    I'd prefer my 'hello world kernel.img' over ChromeOS anytime.

    @nitwhiz Samsung also got an military department, you know

    The only positive about this is that SAMSUNG did not try and push their own OS through. Remember Tizen, anyone?

    @nitwhiz Samsung build awesome 9 series laptops. They stepped it the PC business a few years back.

    1000$ for a chromebook? You'll get a decent laptop for that much money.

    @nitwhiz @namnbyte @hjk101 Samsung has been making PCs since 1983 and laptops at least since 1996. Source: https://news.samsung.com/global/...

    @ddephor @olback @JFK422
    You guy's do understand that it is a real laptop right.
    Also Chrome OS is not just a Linux kernel that only runs Chrome.
    Besides Chrome apps you can run Android apps and Linux apps (it runs reamlessly in a secure containerizated environment out of the box).

    Maintenance is a dream. Expiration is a nightmare.

    @hjk101 sure, you can run Android apps and some Linux distros. But it's crazy overpriced. Plus, not all chromebooks can run Android apps.

    @namnbyte would make sense since they're literally one third of s. Koreas economy

    @Ranchu it's the OS Samsung created, was used on their earlier smart watches and many of thier smart TVs
