Turns out, Samsung really does love faux leather.
The company has slathered it atop its refreshed Chromebook 2 series, an update to its Chrome OS line of laptops. Think Galaxy Note 3 comes to Chromebook.
The Chromebook 2s are comprised of an 11.6- and 13.3-inch pair, both with displays that jump ahead of the previous generation. The 11.6-incher runs with a 1366 x 768 resolution and the larger with a Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen.
Both ship with 4GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage. A microSD slot also brings up the memory.

Samsung has equipped the Chromebooks with an otco-core processor, akin to the one found in the Galaxy S5. However, just because it has eight cores doesn’t mean all will be kicking all the time.
The 11.6-inch model is said to have up to 8 hours of battery life, while the 13.3 model can last half an hour longer.
The Chromebook 2 line is on the thinner and lighter side; the smaller version weights 2.43 pounds and it’s bigger sibling a still-measly 3.09.
Samsung has thrown in Air Droid Premium as well as Wunderlist Pro. Look for the pair to arrive in April for $319.99 and $399.99, respectively.
