Looking at this super-thin Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2, most people probably wouldn't think it's a Chromebook until they turned it on.

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 is one of the most stylish Chromebooks on the market. It's got a beautiful design, a sharp QLED display, and looks great in both its red and grey colors.

It's also thin and light, meaning it's super portable. Like we mentioned before, this Chromebook is great if you're a student, and you'll appreciate its low 2.3-pound weight if you commute to work. Plus, this Chromebook has the brilliant S-Pen built in, so you'll be able to effortlessly take quick notes and draw on the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook's screen.

Performance is great, too. Our machine didn't stutter or slow down once in our testing, even with a dozen tabs open in Chrome and multiple HD videos streaming simultaneously on YouTube.

The main drawback of this Chromebook is its battery life, lasting about 7.5 hours in our testing. This is fine for casual use, but you may need to carry a charger with you during the day otherwise.
