Furthermore, real-time status about the display will be available to all users. The laptop will also have modules to track the app usage and consumption.

By introducing a 2-in-1 Chromebook, Samsung has invaded the territory of Microsoft. The Surface Pro tablet can be used only as a tablet. However, if you would like to use it as a laptop, you need to dock the display with an external keyboard type cover.

In the case of Chromebook, you need have to carry any keyboard since users will have a capability to rotate the display.

Moreover, the display is prone to reflections if it is docked with the keyboard separately. The idea of Samsung is an excellent move to tap not only mobile-friendly users but also the general community. Furthermore, the integration of Play Store into a laptop will prove rich dividends in the long term.
