Samsung Chromebook Pro gets backlit keyboard one year later

Laptops are made for typing and Chromebooks are really no different, be it traditional, convertible, or even detachable. But typing on the go doesn't always happen in the most favorable conditions and you might find yourself fumbling in the dark for the right keys. So it was terribly baffling when Samsung launched its Chromebook Pro last year without one critical feature: a backlit keyboard. And now just as baffling, Samsung has very silently sneaked in a new Chromebook Pro model that adds exactly that but at an unsurprisingly higher price.
