Samsung reveals new ultra-budget Chromebook 4 and 4+

Samsung was one of the first companies to jump on the Chrome OS train, but its latest models have been a bit lackluster. The company's last sub-$300 laptop was the Chromebook 3, released back in 2017, and now it's finally getting a sequel. Or two sequels, to be exact.

And while the company has been stepping up in terms of Chrome OS SD card features, there is one persistent glitch we now know how to fix.

Pixelbook 2 may be an old-fashioned Chromebook coming out as Pixelbook Go

Little has been made of last year's Pixel Slate: an overcomplicated hardware form factor that made using its rather simple Chrome OS somewhat challenging. It made customers contort to buying keyboards and pens. Critics have said Google should've just stuck to a laptop. Well, perhaps the Pixelbook Go may be the laptop you've wanted since last year... from last year.

Chromebooks were mistakenly telling users that their updates were about to dry up

Chrome OS's Dev and Canary update channels bring the latest features before they hit the stable track, but at the expense of bugs and other issues. Many who use Dev/Canary have probably experienced a mini-heart attack upon seeing a "Final software update" message within the past week, but rest assured — it was just an unfortunate bug that's since been fixed.

Too many Chromebooks are dying early deaths - Google needs to step up

Chromebooks have been shaking up the PC industry since the first CR-48 model arrived nearly nine years ago. Thanks to a combination of a custom Linux-based OS and solid state storage, Google managed to hit netbook-like prices while (thankfully) outpacing netbook-like performance.

In the past two years or so, PC makers have embraced Chrome OS as more than just a platform for low-end hardware.
