Google just released a Chromebook that works with Android Apps
I've been contemplating to buy a Chromebook for a while now, I like the fact that it has a really big autonomy and the price is very cheap compared with laptops. A Chromebook might be perfect for my needs, in essence, all I need is the browser, but if certain Android apps can be installed that would be a huge bonus.
Samsung Chromebook Pro and Plus will be the first Chromebooks to have available apps from the Android apps store, they are currently working together with Google to implement all this. Pre-orders might start from February and apparently the starting price will be 450 US dollars.
The price is a little be too much for my taste, I understand this will be some new technology and these Samsung Chromebooks will also have a pen and other nice features but I still think I can buy a better laptop at that price.
Ethier way, I'm sure these will evolve throughout 2017 and other manufacturers will implement the same features and cheaper versions of the Chromebook will be released. If the same autonomy will be present I'm pretty sure I'll get myself a Chromebook this year.
