A video look at Samsung’s Chromebook 2 surfaced earlier in the week, showing off the company’s refreshed Chrome OS(s goog) laptop. Overall, the device looked impressive, handing a YouTube video with ease, even with multiple tabs open including one that was streaming music.
Such performance is important because the chip powering the Chromebook 2 is one of Samsung’s and it’s far more potent than the processor in the company’s original Chromebook. Unfortunately, we won’t be getting our own looks at the Chromebook 2 any time soon. After beginning U.S. pre-orders early in April, Samsung has reportedly delayed availability until late May.
On this week’s Chrome Show podcast we share our observations of the Chromebook 2 video and also share a few new Chromecast developments: MLB.tv and a hack to stream Google Play Music to an Apple(s aapl) TV. Tune in below or download the podcast here for this week’s show.
