This year, the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 with a QLED screen appeared. This laptop compromises on some things for the previous iteration while cutting nearly 50% off the price. Better yet, because it uses QLED, the Chromebook 2 should offer longer battery life than its predecessor. According to Kolhatkar, they have designed the Galaxy Chromebook 2 by taking the popular features like specs, design and colour from the earlier design and bringing them to a wider base of customers. And lastly, to power it all, there is a 45.5Wh battery.

The all-new Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 comes in two variants: Intel Celeron and Intel Core i3, priced at $549.99 and $699, respectively. Last year, Samsung basically raided the Galaxy Note's assembly line and added an identical, foldable S-Pen to the Chromebook 1.

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is a handsome 13.3-inch Chrome OS two-in-one with a gorgeous 4K-resolution AMOLED display and a strong Intel Core i5 processor. The Galaxy Chromebook line takes this intuitive Google experience to new heights, offering immersive entertainment capabilities that let you do more with Chrome OS. Powered by Intel processors, along with ultra-fast Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) capabilities, Galaxy Chromebook 2 allows you to multi-task easily. The original started with an i5, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage, but could be maxed out to an i7 with 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. While the company's slim active pen is included with the first-gen model, Samsung removed it in favor of USI pen support. There's also support for WiFi 6 on the new model. There are also two 5W speakers that utilise Smart AMP feature that Samsung state are 178% louder than an average amplifier and there is also a 720p webcam located at the top middle of the display. The laptop packs 10th generation Intel Core i3-10110U processor.

Red Deer unemployment rate dips below 10%
Retailers added 121,000 jobs in December, which may have reflected consumers stepping up spending for the holidays. Companies announced a 18.9% surge in layoffs last month, and a measure of service industry employment contracted.

Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/Yes, Bluetooth and it comes with 2 USB ports (2 x USB 3.0 (Type C)), Multi Card Slot, Headphone and Mic Combo Jack ports.

The Galaxy Chromebook 2 is slated to launch in the first quarter of this year, and we're eager to run it through our tests to see how it stacks up to the best laptops and best Chromebooks out there.
