Samsung Galaxy Chromebook vs. Pixelbook Go: Which should you buy?

Samsung surprised us at CES this year with the Galaxy Chromebook, a high-end convertible Chrome OS laptop whose thin, angular body is awfully reminiscent the original Pixelbook. It's on sale today.

If you're on the hunt for a premium Chrome device, these two should be high on your list, but which should you buy? Let's discuss.

At last month’s CES event, Samsung came out with the Galaxy Chromebook, which David thought could be a worthy successor to the 2017 Google laptop. The Samsung convertible is now headed to the US, according to an online listing, but it won’t get an LTE variant.

LineageOS is the most popular custom ROM in existence, and the project prides itself on bringing newer versions of Android to unsupported devices.

Samsung is reportedly disappointed with S20 sales, and that has manifested as a new "buy-back" program available to buyers of the Galaxy S20 series. If you pick up a Galaxy S20, Samsung promises to buy it back for 50% of the full retail price if you send it back within two years.

Samsung extends warranty on all of its consumer products through May 31 in India

It's also possible to pick up a pre-booked Galaxy S20 at a later time.
