Samsung 11.6” Chromebook 2 (Refurbished A-Grade)
Optimized for performance and portability, this Chromebook offers the fastest possible WiFi connection for quick downloads and features a web-based operating system that makes a clunky hard drive unnecessary. That means the laptop stays light and thin, easily slipping into a backpack, briefcase, or tote to accompany you almost anywhere.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with about 1 million pixels, the display produces image quality similar to what you’d see on an HDTV with 720p HD resolution. Such sharpness and clarity also make the text on your favorite news and social-media sites clear and easy to read.
Cloud-Based Chrome OS
This Chromebook can forego the components that make most laptops bulky and heavy, thanks to its web-based Chrome OS. Rather than store applications and files on a built-in hard drive, Chrome syncs with your pre-existing Google account to store everything, from documents and spreadsheets to MP3 files and video, entirely online. This system not only saves space on your computer; it makes your files accessible from anywhere you can log into your Google account, such as your smartphone.

In the box: laptop and charger
In the 70 years of its existence, Samsung has grown into an international company with interests spanning from home electronics to skyscraper construction. The company takes its global role seriously, working to improve communities with both its financial support and the expertise of its talented employees. The company’s Solve for Tomorrow competition, for instance, challenges kids to create videos that demonstrate how science and math can be used in new ways to improve their local environment. After screening the videos of thousands of worthy entrants and dozens of confused American Idol hopefuls, Samsung chooses five winners, whose schools each receive $110,000 in technology. Solve for Tomorrow is just one of the company’s outreach initiatives, which align with its philosophy to help build a “better global society.”
