See the Samsung Chromebook 2 Get Unboxed

unboxingThe Samsung Chromebook 2 goes on sale later this month. But what sort of box does it come in? Will it be padded with styrofoam? ARE TIE CLIPS INVOLVED ANYWHERE??!!

Answers to these questions, and many more, can be found by watching the unboxing video below.

Un-Mocking Videos

Yeah, I know: it’s easy (almost too easy) to mock the blatant gadget pr0n that the humble unboxing video is. Search for a product, however niche it might be, on YouTube and chances are someone, somewhere has recorded themselves opening it up in an act of misplaced helpfulness.

Having watched a fair few over the years, the vast majority are as exciting as they sound (i.e., not very). There’s only so much stating the obvious, excessive description of bubble wrap and blurred close-ups of the leaflets one can take.

But now and then you come across one that gets right to the point, like the Chromebook 2 unboxing video below. While not a review of the device itself, nor offering any insight into performance offered, it gives those looking to pick one up when they hit shelves later this month, an advance preview that’s sure to stoke excitement.
