Samsung Chromebook Plus XE513C24-K01US Review – The Enhance Version With Better Features

I have still remembered on how I was seeing this Chromebook in the CES event of 2017. The company shows this machine in of their showcases and it makes lot of people interested to test it and see how it looks. At that time, I was so surprised that consumers are interested to test of Chrome OS since almost all of them are into with Windows. I have tried to ask them and they said they do not mine as long as the system runs fine. This is also maybe the right time for you to take a look into it.

Samsung has released their line up series few months ago and the one that really makes me interested is this device. Both of design and features are blend perfectly with nice finishing. The body itself is made from magnesium alloy and could be swapped easily to the tablet or standard mode. For people who still wondering if it’s worth or not for the price, you are going to find it soon.

That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to talk about it further on this article. To make it easier for you to understand, let`s we jump into the article.


The design is very minimalist in my opinion where it does not have too many things to show up. These cases are happened on the both of Plus and Pro version. Here, there are two different models which only different in processor and nothing more. The aluminum chassis is not that wide in comparable with most laptops and you probably need to get used with for a while. The lid itself is very simple or plain and there is only rounded edges and monochromatic logo that placed here.

As I get inside to the interior, I found that the screen is very unique for some reasons. It uses of 3:2 ratio rather than using the standard one with 16:9. As the result, using it in the tablet is so comfortable and what we get is only the display. The keyboard is coming in full size and it feels so comfortable when I was typing my documents on it. The keyboard is only pushed to the jam little bit, but not of a big problem on this case.

Display And Ports

I am pretty sure that you are not going to find any problem on sticking with for many hours thanks to the display. With the resolution of 2400 x 1600 in 12.3 inch display, I have seen it as one of the best among the Chromebook. The screen is really sharp and colorful. Streaming the 1080p video in tablet mode runs smoothly with so many details in color. These colors are so accurate and results of 376 nits for the brightness.

As for the port, there are not much choices here and you might have to depend everything on cloud. Here, you would find three USB type-C ports and one of them is used to hold the stylus. So, you only have single USB to use when it’s charged. For the rest, there are audio jack and micro SD slot. Not much to find, but at least they already give us 3 USB ports.

Chromebook Pro 3This is probably the biggest features to show up. It comes with embedded stylus that can be easily taken on the right side slot. The pen itself is very identical to the S Pen that we got in the Galaxy smartphone or tablet. When you pop out the stylus, the special menu is showed up and you are given chance to start note or capture the screen. Taking note is much easier here and I often do it.

The note is connected into our Google account and means we could access it anywhere and anytime we want on Chrome or Android. Google said they put of machine learning where it will learn many things from us. So, when you use it too many times, the machine would recognize what we are going to do and instantly do it for us. This feature is considered as nice and very useful.
