Design of the Samsung Chromebook

The Samsung Chromebook comes with a 12.1-inch LED Backlit display, and the screen is an anti-reflective one. It is rightly called the SuperBright display with the LED being 40% brighter than normal. The left side has a USB port and other side has a USB port, the charger slot and a 4-in-1 memory card reader and a 3.5-mm jack for headset.

The keys on keyboard are dug-in to make the base look flat from the side, and this mimics the larger laptops from Samsung. The touchpad is buttonless and the bottom of it can be pressed to click and the touchpad supports multi-touch.
