Google’s New Year’s present to owners and potential owners of Chromebooks is the announcement of a new pair of Chromebooks from Samsung. These are the Samsung Chromebook Pro and the Samsung Chromebook Plus.

What Google hopes will make the ultra-thin Chromebooks stand out and be well-received by consumers is because they’re the first built from the ground up to run millions of Android apps from Google Play store.
