The Samsung Plus XE521QAB-K01US is a stealthy laptop model designed for those who want a high mobile friendly device. This laptop comes with a compact 12.2 inch screen which makes a very noticeable difference in the weight of the device compared to a full sized 15.6 inch model. Below we will review some of its key benefits and downsides.
Processor: Intel Celeron
Memory: 4 GB of RAM
Storage: 32 GB eMMC
Screen: 12.2 Inches
OS: Chrome OS
– With a weight of only 2.9 pounds it is almost half the weight of a typical full sized laptop
– It also comes with a flip-and-fold design so you can switch from laptop to tablet modes
– For those looking to change things up from Microsoft or Apple software this device runs Google’s Chrome OS
– Includes a built-in media card reader that supports the MicroSD format
– The specs are minimal with only an Intel Celeron and 4 GB of memory included, luckily Chrome OS does have lower system requirements so it shouldn’t have a huge impact on performance
– Space is limited with only 32 GB of storage available which will most likely force you to use external storage of some sort for all your file needs
– With only a low end graphics card high end gaming will probably be unlikely on this device
If you want something basic for on the go use it is hard to argue with the Samsung Plus XE521QAB-K01US which is very lightweight and while slightly more expensive than some options still feels well worth the money.
