Okay, so this isn’t going to be one of those posts where I make some subjective argument that people will disagree with about how Samsung’s copied something. I’m simply going to show you two photos, then you can make your own mind up about the ‘influence’ the Macbook Air had in the Chromebook.
Exhibit A: A simple, side by side comparison of both devices (via Business Insider).
Exhibit B: A close up of a recent YouTube ad, which features the Chromebook. It appears that Google forgot to remove the trademark Apple buttons in the top left hand corner. Oops.
