Great gift for daughters!

By SamShel from Miami, FL, USA on 09/09/2015


Pros:

Bright Display, Inexpensive

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought two Samsung Chromebooks for my daughters, ages 7 and 10. They immediately took a hold of the technology and use them to advance their studies. Highly recommended as they are lightweight, portable and easy to use.

I love my decision to get a chromebook

By Comwarrior from Buffalo, Ny on 09/02/2015


Pros:

Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Durable, Bright Display

Cons:

A Bit Under Powered

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have work in the computer industry for a while, and always relied on a laptop. My switch to this chromebook took a lot of consideration. I have used chromebooks before, but never owned one. This is a durable device that survived daily use by my 3 and 6 year olds. It offers decent performance. But overall it was a great value for me.

get the warranty if you plan on purchasing

By vthurmond from Undisclosed on 08/05/2015


Pros:

Durable, Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Lightweight, Bright Display

Cons:

Did Not Meet Expectations

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

To be on the safe side get the warranty because mines broke down two maybe three months after purchase. If it wasn't for my warranty I would have been very upset because a part had to replaced. It's not a bad product though depending on your computer needs and wants.

New Chromebook

By Geeeeesh from United States on 07/25/2015


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Many Accessories, Realistic Color, Bright Display, Durable, Lightweight, Inexpensive

Cons:

I Found The Touch Pad Very Frustrating

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not much trouble adjusting to an OS system using Chrome. Fairly intuitive. The machine does exactly what it says it will do, and rather quickly. I'm 70 years old and did not want to relearn, retrain or readjust for it, and I did not.

Great mobile solution for the price!!!

By Brosef from Oak Hill, OH 45656, USA on 06/12/2015


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Awesome Accessibility To Your Mobile Life..., Bright Display, Durable, Realistic Color, Lightweight, Inexpensive

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Chromebook took just a little to get used to where it is a Linux based system and not running on windows like all my previous laptops and netbooks. The integration of Google and their applications makes the experience all the better, Overall, it is a pretty powerful piece of equipment that will not break the bank...

Decent for what it is

By jkwalker111 from VT on 06/08/2015


Pros:

Inexpensive, Bright Display

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

For basic web based activities this is totally sufficient. I also watch movies from my NAS server and that streams well. The only real negative has to be the built in Bluetooth which has trouble connecting to headphones. My Tab3 connects in a snap but the Chromebook is quite finicky. I've tried several sets of headphones which all have this problem. You must disable/enable Bluetooth while turning headphones off/on at just the right time to get them to connect. For the money, however, this device works quite well.

WiFi connectivity failure "bad Password"

By Brendie from NZ on 04/06/2015


Pros:

Inexpensive

Cons:

Wifi Connectivity

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I just purchased my first Chromebook, but after some initially getting it connected to my fully functioning WiFi network at home it dropped off. I played for quite some time and managed to get it reconnected only to have it drop off, never to connect again. Every time I add the correct password for the WiFi router it comes back with the error message "bad password". I went online only to find that this appears to be a common problem that users have been confounded with for the last couple of months and it may have an incompatibility with a Chrome OS update. Arrrrrg. Because you cannot connect to WiFi you cannot get any updates that may resolve the issue.

This product is fine

By melanie7596 from Miami, FL, USA on 03/17/2015


Pros:

Durable, Realistic Color, Bright Display, Lightweight

Cons:

Poor Quality, Did Not Meet Expectations

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Samsung Chromebook is fine but not great. The device is great but the problem in my opinion is the Chrome. Personally I prefer Windows. No really to many options, I can't downloand my University Ebooks because the "ascm" is not supporting, for example. So the computer is great but not the format. After this experience hope come back to windows soon as posible.

Great alternative to a full size laptop.

By gnomeone from Undisclosed on 02/26/2015


Pros:

Inexpensive, Realistic Color, Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I chose my Chromebook because it is light weight and gives me a faster way to access the internet than my Windows based laptop. The display is bright but did give me the slightest bit of glare. (Adjusting the angle of the display did not make a difference, but moving away from the lamp did.) Boot time is minimal. Much faster than any other laptop I have owned. When Google makes printing documents a little more easily done, this Chromebook will be a perfect laptop. I like the power on as I open the laptop a very nice time saving feature. The small speakers give a big sound. Overall I am very pleased with my Chromebook.

Great product

By JJT3 from Dunedin, FL, USA on 02/23/2015


Pros:

Lightweight, Inexpensive, Durable, Ease Of Operation, Realistic Color, Bright Display, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

None

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Was pleasantly surprised with the quality and ease of operation of this lightweight Chromebook. It is everything one needs to communicate with the outside, surf, play music, compose, print, video contact with friends and family and a plethora of other features. I easily added a wireless mouse without any software, just plug in and go. Was even able to download all my email contacts from my PC and print from my kitchen to my office in the rear of the house. Can't wait to take it on my next plane trip. I think there is a big future in the partnership of Google and Samsung.

Poor Durability

By msakroiua from Undisclosed on 02/17/2015


Pros:

Bright Display, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

Poor Quality, Unrealistic Colors, Did Not Meet Expectations, Not Durable

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This version of the Samsung Chromebook is not durable at all. I am a student and I have to use the Chromebook everyday. This device must be supported with a case. Otherwise scratches and dents will become often. The laptop is surrounded by cheaply made plastic that can crack when being put into a bag surrounded by books. Dead cells appear on the screen often and apparently that is normal, which it should not be. The screen itself cracks easily. In terms of the actual software, it lacks in features. It does not stream all of the videos I want to watch due to not having Java. Google drive also runs slow and it is not as effective as Microsoft Word. Overall, this laptop is not something a student or someone who runs around a lot with the laptop should buy.

Excellent Small Chromebook

By Andy50220 from Chiang Mai, Thailand on 02/02/2015


Pros:

Lightweight, Inexpensive

Cons:

Small Screen

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Over the years I have purchased many of the most expensive ultrabooks, I like to travel with a small and lightweight notebook that has great battery life but there is always the worry of loss, damage or theft. I bought this as a cheap alternative on the basis that if I lose it or damage it I can simply replace it and suffer no data loss. In the 18 months that I have owned this it has grown on me, and I love the OS so much that I bought a Chromebox for use at home. Now I'm finding the screen a bit small as I'm 50+ and my eyes are not what they were, but I'd recommend this to anyone.

Great performance! Great value!

By Fletchman from Ohio on 01/29/2015


Pros:

Lightweight, Inexpensive, Love The Chrome Os!, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display

Cons:

I Have Absolutely No Cons To Speak Of!

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Have had it for 3 weeks now. I am loving the Chrome OS!! I cannot see me ever buying a conventional Windows laptop again. This Samsung Chrome laptop is super fast, has good features and a super bargain. I bought mine at the "Big Box Store", you know the one :). I am not a gamer so can't offer a review on that. But, for web browsing, facebook, google, photo sharing, email and google doc's it is perfect! Buy one, you will LOVE it!!!

I was scared at first to buy this since it was so cheap and I wasn't sure what my limitations were going to be. I was surprised to find out that I can still do A LOT with this, even when I am not around wifi. There are a lot of apps that you can still access when you are offline.

still getting used to differences

By nanaj from Undisclosed on 01/17/2015


Pros:

Inexpensive, Small Size, Lightweight

Cons:

No Access To Google Play, Extensions Rapidly Drain Battery

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

overall the chromebook works as I expected based on prior research, however, it does take some getting used to as there are several differences between chromebook and windows PC- but the help menu is pretty good for information. I find that I still do not like that I cannot access the google play store- only the chrome webstore which has far more limited offerings, and I do not like that several extensions drain the battery so quickly- what was billed as 5-7 hours has never yet lasted that long- that said, I much appreciate the smaller size and lighter weight, but find that I still must use a combination of chromebook and windows based pc ......

SD Card Slot Failed

By LS1049 from Texas on 11/19/2014


Pros:

Lightweight, Inexpensive

Cons:

Early Sd Card Slot Failure

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

One month into ownership the SD card (Transcend SDXC 64 GB) card became read only in the Chromebook SD card slot. Up to that point I could read/write to the card, no problems. One day it worked the next day it was read only. Unfortunately I was out of the country and needed this to work; very disappointing. I have tested the SD card itself on my desktop PC (Win 8.1) and it reads/writes perfectly. So I formatted the SD card, under Win 8.1, and still is read only on the Chromebook. The lock switch on the SD card is in the unlock position. I finally super glued the lock switch to unlock, just in case. Still read only on the Chromebook. Works fine on the desktop. It looks to me like the SD card slot, or some other hardware failed early. I can find no references to the issue online. I can find no support for this.

I love this Chromebook however

By Heraton from Sedona AZ on 10/12/2014


Pros:

Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Lightweight, Realistic Color, Inexpensive

Bluetooth Having Problems, Too Slow ... Should Have Better Wifi Modul ...

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Two aspects are not satisfying my needs ... I have a problem with my Bluetooth devices ... just stops playing the music as soon as connected ... and it does not connect as good to wifi ... it is a bit too slow and it should have a stronger wifi receiver ... my HTC phone picks the signal up much better ... this are the reasons why it is just average for me ... a pity because if this would be doing fine it certainly would get five stars ...

I love mac. Hate PC. Don't have deep pockets. This machine was the answer for home use/travel. If you are a coder, play 3d games, etc, this is not for you. I browse the web, watch movies while traveling (sometimes using a flashdrive to make up for the limited memory when traveling so I have more options to choose from to watch), do light doc work using google docs/spreadsheet. Easy to then sync up on my iMac at work, because I live on chrome. In fact, I prefer the simplicity of chrome docs to MS office (every time MS "upgrades" their software they just add more confusing buttons) - and chrome docs are compatible w/ MS (and there is the free web version of MS too), so I will NEVER buy MS software again!! I dropped this machine from a height of 4 feet onto a hard wood floor (by mistake - NOT to test it) over a year ago - not even a mark on the case! Been loving this machine since 6/26/13 (writing this review on 10/9/14). Very good battery life, a decent screen and an excellent keyboard and trackpad (didn't skip a beat going from my imac keyboard to this one). I also have an old imac at home - it sits on my desk gathering dust. Did a lot of research on cheap windows machines before buying this - sure they may be more "powerful," but I'd rather have the lightening fast boot-up, battery life, simplicity of operation, LIGHT-weight package and NO viruses any day over being able to brag that "I could design a Mars landing module while pretending to save the galaxy from space invaders."

Hard to use

By JLou from Undisclosed on 10/08/2014


Pros:

Bright Display, Lightweight, Inexpensive

Cons:

Difficult Functionality, Did Not Meet Expectations

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This computer is sleek and a great size but once you open it up and login it's difficult to use. Requires certain apps to download certain file types. To me it's just a pain! Would not recommend.... Huge disappointment.

Works for me...

By Snake2561 from Kentucky, USA on 09/15/2014


Pros:

Boot Time, Bright Display, Lightweight, Inexpensive

Cons:

Doesn't Do Peripherals

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Boots in less than 15 seconds and connects pretty quick to WIFI. I use it mostly for online video and email, which is perfect for this. Almost no devices connect to it other than mem sticks, but I don't run a lot of peripherals. Works exactly as I bought it for.

Very convenient and portable

By Cromer from STL on 09/13/2014


Pros:

Durable, Bright Display, Inexpensive, Lightweight

Cons:

Need A Manual

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really like the size and the ability to take it anywhere but you must have a Wi-Fi connection. There are a few things I haven't figured out. An installed manual or at least one to download would be nice. I should have paid more attention to the tutorial when I started it up.

Entry level chromebook

By melanchete from Elyria, OH, USA on 08/12/2014


Pros:

Lightweight

Cons:

Easily Show Wear, Did Not Meet Expectations

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

While the design and layout of the Chromebook are current, the materials used could be better. Easily shows signs of wear when lightly used. Google offers 100gb of storage with the purchase of the chromebook, but there are people out there that purchase and return the Chromebooks just to get the 100gb of cloud storage. The next person that purchases the Same Chromebook is penalized and denied the storage. Google needs to change this policy

Great value - small and light - easy travel companion

By Nick49 from Oregon, USA on 08/04/2014


Pros:

Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Inexpensive, Long Lasting Battery Life, Lightweight, Durable

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The main drawback to a Chromebook is limited use without a good wifi signal. You can listen to your music and watch videos from your USB drive, but without Google services, you are limited in what you can do on an airplane - unless of course, the airplane has wifi. Also, my USB drive comes with encryption software to protect my important files. You will not be able to access those files on a Chromebook because the software requires one of the other two operating systems to work. As Chromebooks go, though, the Samsung is a great value and a well-made product.

Great little Chromebook. Lightweight and boots up quick. Easy to set up - everything with my Google account automatically transferred over. No difficulties at all.

A Waste

By NowAChromebookHater from Undisclosed on 07/10/2014


Pros:

Realistic Color, Inexpensive, Durable, Built-in Speakers, Lightweight, Bright Display

Cons:

Did Not Meet Expectations

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

In hindsight, I wonder why I never immediately returned this next to useless product I received as a gift within the first 30 days. If you're looking to connect via the 3G cellular modem, good luck in: 1) finding a signal and keeping it up if you move the Chrome book 6" away from where you last by some miracle connected, and 2) Trying to manually force this unit to look for a 3G signal and connect. A touchpad that seems backwards to every one I've ever used before this, thank God I can plug a USB mouse in the back. Now I have to carry around a mouse to be able to use this with any degree of functionality When I can't reach Google drive I can't get to my data, so why bother using this? If I'm already in a WIFI area I can use my laptop so this is a redundant waste of money

Great Hardware limited by Chrome

By Tabnut from Oregon/Washington on 07/03/2014


Pros:

Bright Display, Durable, Overall Quality, Realistic Color, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Found a great deal on this Chromebook and wanted to give it a try. This is a great computer with plenty of features, good looks, and workable performance. Being a Google/Android/Chrome fan, I had high hopes for Chrome OS. It is certainly acceptable for web browsing, if that's all you want from an operating system. It quickly made me appreciate Windows. Anyway, I can always put Windows on this laptop if I really need more... for now, it's doing just what I need.

Maybe it was because I bought this chromebook refurbished but it was awful. The hard drive failed after less than a month of using it. You really can't do much with it. If you want to just access the internet, it might be good as that's pretty much it could be used for

I love our Chromebook. We took it across the United States last year, and then to Alaska on a cruise. We were able to stay in touch with our family while we were gone. It had a problem this year and all we had to do was send it back and have it repaired rapidly. We use the Chromebook every day. Our 5 year granddaughter is able to use the Chromebook without any difficulties. Thank you for this great little machine.

Perfect laptop for my usage

By SphnxRnch from Caliente, CA 93518, USA on 06/17/2014


Pros:

Lightweight, Inexpensive

Cons:

Not Easy To Get Hardware Fixed

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It has everything I need and nothing I don't. Only problem I have had is a pinched display cable which intermittently screws up the display. No place local will fix it and it is not worth sending to Texas, so I pulled off the panel by the hinge and just thumbnail the offending cable to get it to stop shorting. But the software is great, plenty of apps, and a very good value. Speakers could definitely be better, but this is not my main sound system.

The Chromebook Rocks

By liv2cycle from cycling usa on 06/17/2014


Pros:

Bright Display, Netflix Friendly, Easy To Use, Hangouts Friendly, Lightweight, No Hard Drive Issues

Cons:

If You Need Windows This Is Not For You

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We first saw the Chrome book at a continental breakfast while on a trip! A fellow senior traveler was using one so we stopped and asked her about it. Perfect for using on a car trip to look up places to stay, routes to take, places to eat, watch our Netflix and of course stay in contact with friends and family. I also use it to do some volunteer work online. I just sent it in for repairs and found out I was still under warranty! have already fixed it, updated it and they've sent it home! I was carrying it on my touring bike because we are crossing the country but I picked up a tablet which is even lighter to carry up the hills! My chrome book will be ready and waiting for me at home!

A great product for a great price

By KMihe from Undisclosed on 06/13/2014


Pros:

Lightweight, Durable, Bright Display, Inexpensive, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As a college student, I needed a highly portable device that I could take around campus with me to take notes and pass time between classes in the library. The battery for this netbook lasts all day for me--through online shopping, note-taking, and watching videos. The only downside is because the netbook is web-based, sometimes there is connectivity issues with google docs that can be a hassle when trying to keep up with lectures. Also google slides sometimes is incompatible with my powerpoint slides, which can be fixed through using a separate site. Overall, I've had a positive experience with my product, I've had it for a year now and haven't had any issues. I've accidentally dropped it a couple of times and there's no serious damage to the casing or any hardware. Also the adaptation to the Chrome OS did not take very long at all--from going from Android and Windows products.

Winning combination!

By howmad44 from Vernon, BC, Canada on 05/27/2014


Pros:

Bright Display, Inexpensive, Excellent Wifi Antenna, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Although I like tablets the Samsung Chromebook is my preferred choice due to the dedicated keyboard. Its very light weight, blazing fast start up and super low price makes this unit a no-brainer. The unexpected bonus, for me, is the WiFi antenna. I have two tablets that cannot stream video, without buffering, when the signal is marginal, but it's no problem for the Chromebook. Downloading speed test apps on all devices confirmed the higher efficiency of the Samsung.

Not worth the money

By Newdad12345 from Undisclosed on 05/26/2014


Cons:

Poor Quality, Did Not Meet Expectations, Bad Value

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Purchased this until we were able to buy a Mac. We were told when we bought it that it could easily handle all of the things we normally did on our old laptop by the best buy salesperson. Turns out that the chromebook could not handle word, netflix or spotify, which are the only things we wanted it to do. Within the first year the screen ended up breaking, and the mousepad stopped working. We will never make the mistake of buying this product or another chromebook again. Ended up just letting our 5 year old use it for her games until it just breaks beyond use.

I think this product was well thought out.

By wardblvd from Wisconsin, USA on 05/24/2014


Pros:

Durable, Bright Display, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Realistic Color

Cons:

Weak Speakers., Function With Tv Could Be Better.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Originally I felt the lack of a correction key would be very difficult, but I have found that with the arrow keys and backspace key I get along quite well. The screen is fine and light enough to see except in bright sunlight, but I think they all have trouble with that. The only difficulty I have found is when connected to the TV I haven't figured out how to adjust the picture size to fit the TV screen. The instructions are quite vague and don't seem to do what is supposed to happen. Otherwise does everything I have wanted of it. The only other thing that brings the rating down at all is the apps. I noticed that google is including apps that only take you to another web site that has an app that only works on other OPS, not Chrome. A waste of time I would say for Chrome users. Good product, good value. I recommend it. Oh yeah, the speakers could be louder.

Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Durable, Inexpensive, Lightweight

Cons:

Not High Def

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is the first chrome book I've owned and I'm very impressed. It boots really quickly and navigates quickly once online. The selection of apps available from the chrome store is getting better allowing to rely more and more on the Samsung chrome book. Battery life is about 5-5.5 hours, light weight and easy to carry around, and more durable than I had initially thought.

Better than the underpowered semi-computer I expected

By 1durianman from Washington, DC on 05/21/2014


Pros:

Lightweight, Inexpensive

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought the Samsung Chromebook just to fill in a gap for mobile computing. I was also looking at tablets with separate keyboards and ended up buying the Chromebook. I was expecting very little, so for the first several months I owned it, I used it very little and didn't explore everything it could do. When my home computer got moved and I temporarily didn't have wireless access to it, I started using the Chromebook heavily and finally looked up all the commands you can use for browsing, document editing, etc., and found that it's really a lot more than the toy I thought it was. True, you have to be connected to do many things, but it's not as limited as I thought. In fact, once I figured out saving files on it (or a thumb drive) and bought a printer that uses Google Cloud printing for occasional print jobs, I found it to be pretty agile and a full member of my technology team. It would have been nicer to have been able to print using wifi or a usb cable, but that's not possible. It's definitely not for everyone, and I'm not sure it could serve as someone's main computer, but it might if you're satisfied with google docs and don't need other apps on your computer. It's definitely serving a niche for me, so I'm generally pretty positive about it. It developed a mousepad glitch that was clearly a hardware problem, but I called and sent it in for warranty service, so Samsung will stand behind it.

This is great

By tngerin from Undisclosed on 05/21/2014


Pros:

Realistic Color, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Durable, Inexpensive

Cons:

Need Larger Print

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I really like this Chromebook and all the features. I can access my email fast, and look up whatever I need plus if I look something up again, it is there. I can also see when the last time i accessed a site. I only have 2 problems with it, and that is when I have read a book, and leave it for another day, the page I left the book on does not appear again so I have to page forward to find the last page I read. Also when I access some features the words overlap each other and it is impossible to read anything on that account page.

Schools

By IT4School from New Jersey, USA on 05/20/2014


Pros:

Inexpensive, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Off To On And Surfing Is Quick

Cons:

Power Pin That Plugs Into Back Could Be Fragile

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We recently deployed a hundred of these Samsung ChromeBook units for our school as a first wave of ChromeOS devices (with more on order). The low cost of the devices has allowed us to deploy a higher count of equipment that fits our needs than we could have with other options. The staff and students love these Samsung ChromeBooks. From off to on they're logged in and surfing the net very quickly allowing more time on task for the students. On the IT side, if you are Google Apps for Education (GAFE) and you get the console license, you can push settings out to the devices from a central console which makes management a breeze. No antivirus install needed on them, no blue screens, low power consumption, great fit for schools especially when budgets are tight. We recently bought matching Samsung printers to handle our printing needs for these Samsung ChromeBooks using their Google Cloud Print features built into those printers.

Bang for your buck

By techi23 from CT on 05/20/2014


Pros:

Lightweight, Inexpensive, Durable, Bright Display, Camera

Cons:

Takes Getting Used To, Have To Be Connected To Internet

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The chromebook is overall an excellent device, once you get used to the interface you can do anything you did on your old laptop/desktop. It does take some getting used to which can be frustrating especially when you're not connected to wifi, or have a bad wifi signal. However used in home or dorm the device works well, its lightweight and durable. I've dropped mine several times and it still works perfectly.

Design needs a little boost!

By Xaviers10 from Columbus, OH, USA on 05/20/2014


Pros:

Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Wide Screen

Cons:

A Little Difficult To Open

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

To open the lap top takes about three seconds. But a little redesign by putting outer lip for the fingers to grasp (like a half circle) would be more comfortable. And to attach a DVD player for movies which is comparable because I have an LG multiread and player that does not work with it.

Chromebook could be the future

By Staeph from Amsterdam, The Netherlands on 05/20/2014


Pros:

Realistic Color, Durable, Inexpensive

Cons:

Poor Compatibility

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

All the applications and the Chrome OS are great. A big improvement would be a Chrome version of Office (which one can REALLY work with) and video/music player effective with more formats (.mkv, .flac ...). Even pcgame compatibility would be nice. Nontheless it is perfect for a non extensive use and for regular surfing.

Pros:

Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers, Durable, Realistic Color, Plays Videos Off-line., Bright Display, Lightweight

Cons:

Can't Complete And Save Pdf Forms When Off-line

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The main feature that sets it apart from products that run Windows is the speed at which it starts. Ten seconds and no longer. Can play videos and show pictures without being connected to the web. HDMI port makes excellent connection to TV's and projectors. Very light, easy to carry. Only problem is inability to complete PDF forms and save when off-line. Otherwise excellent product.

Samsung Chromebook XE303C12-A01US

By Timerider from Bellevue, NE, USA on 05/19/2014


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Bright Display, Lightweight, Inexpensive, Good Battery Life, Durable

Cons:

Did Not Meet Expectations, Google Need To Have More Apps Available

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This Chromebook is very quick to boot, with good battery life. It is very light and easy to take on trips, even on a motorcycle. I prefer a book device like this to a tablet for the keyboard, which also protects the screen when closed and packed. I widh ther were as many apps and comparable apps for Chrome as there are for Droid devices. Rumor is that Chrome OS will e upgraded to run Droid apps in the future versions, and that wood be a really great improvement!

LOTS OF BANG 4 BUCK

By captgeb from Melbourne, FL, USA on 05/19/2014


Pros:

Lightweight, Bright Display, Inexpensive, Durable

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I got so tired of my windows based computer getting crippling email trojan and internet viruses. I would say 95% (or more) of what I do can be safely accomplished from my Samsung Chromebook. The Samsung Chromebook is lightning fast, turns on instantly, offering portability and convenience at a LOW price. I use it all the time, especially when I travel. Once and a while I return to my infected windows based computer to make a greeting card with adobe photo shop. If google comes up with a decent graphic editor/greeting card app, I may give up the old brick completely. Samsung has done it right with their chromebook. I highly recommend giving a try.

Worth The Money

By TofuMaster from Silicon Valley on 05/19/2014


Pros:

Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Lightweight, Bright Display, Customizable With Apps, Light-weight, Durable, Inexpensive

Cons:

Compatibility To A Download Certain Things

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The first impression that others will have on their face when they see you with this product is, "Is that a MacBook Air?" All the design elements are similar in comparison with the MacBook Air, but considering that this chromebook is not up to that level, there are definitely a few drawbacks to take in. 1) Not compatible with ITunes For all you iPhone users out there, I'm sorry. I know that listening, switching, and adding to your music is what you guys do, but please consider this before you buy a chromebook. However, there is Google Play Music as a rough alternative, just like in similarity with Spotify. NOTE: DO NOT EXPECT TO CHARGE IPADS BECAUSE THIS LAPTOP WILL NOT HAVE PROVIDED ENOUGH WATTS OF POWER TO FULLY CHARGE AN IPAD. 2) Cannot freely download games, etc. Because these chrome books only have so much limited space on their hard drives, you can only download a few number of things. It's not like a PC where you can have microsoft word on it. Google has not developed enough compatibility support for the chromebook for it to allow these things, so you are restricted with what it has. The ideal objective of a chromebook is to use everything online, where it won't waste any space on the hard drive, can be shared instantly, and can access mostly everything offline (you need to download apps for those). 3) No DVD Disk Drive Insert You will not be able to insert any DVDs into your chromebook. BUT there's an hdmi cable where you can connect it to your tv. But... 4) Very durable! As long as you take care of your chromebook and keep it in good condition, then you should be fine. I have accidentally dropped it numerous times from 4 ft and it has not scratched whatsoever. 5) Long lasting battery, depending on how you charge it... What I love is that the battery will tell you how much time you can have until the battery drains out, it changes every so fluently depending on what you're doing, so it's best if you check it every so often. For example, if my battery is at 75%, the chromebook will tell me that I have 5 hours and 35 minutes (5:35 will appear on the screen), and that saves me time figuring out what I should do to keep the battery at a good level. Sometimes it will say 4:50, then 6:40, 7:50...don't worry bout it! It's only doing that because since you're opening, reopening, closing different tabs with different websites on them, the chromebook has to recalculate how much battery it will consume DEPENDING IF you will consistently do those same things. 7) Open your laptop, and it automatically wakes up No button to press after opening, just waiting for your chromebook to start. Love to see this when opening my laptop, and plus, after it's started, just enter your password to your gmail account to unlock your chromebook! You can choose to turn off that setting though. It's automatic though from the beginning you buy your chromebook so no worrying bout any set up. 8) great for school, business, etc. It's great if you need to get a paper done in a rush, or calculate money using various spreadsheets. It's all there, and plus you get 100 GB FREE when you buy one after using your gmail to hook it up to your laptop. You can even enable offline editing, so if you're on an airplane and you need to fix a document but you don't have wifi, you can still edit your files, and when you reconnect to it, it automatically saves for you, time saver indeed. 9) THERES A MEMORY CARD SLOT If you don't like to deal with cords when trying to Import photos off of your camera, just use the memory card slot reader and insert your camera's memory card in. Something that some MacBooks don't have. 10) fast web browsing Depending on your wifi, there's very fast internet browsing. At most, it will take 10 seconds or more to open up a page, and if it's really bad, then maybe just restart your chromebook and try again. The more unnecessary tabs you have open, will surely slow it down though.

Nearly perfect!

By CalOwl from Granada Hills, Los Angeles, CA, USA on 05/19/2014


Pros:

Lightweight, Looks Fantastic, Bright Display, Long Battery Life, Inexpensive

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

First off, ANY Chromebook has to be acknowledged for what it is - not what it is not! Chromebooks are not "full fledged" laptop computers designed to work whether connected to a LAN or WAN or not. A Chromebook has limited functionality when disconnected from the internet, so that is a limitation of the intent of the product, not a limitation of an individual product's execution. That said, if you do your homework and decide that a Chromebook is what you want, you cannot go wrong with this Samsung XE303C12-A01US. Starting with the external appearance, this Chromebook is as sexy as it gets. It is as thin and light as you could possibly want - it rivals the macBook Air for "first look" appeal. Two USB ports provide more connectivity than one will probably need. The HDMI port works like a charm to extend the desktop to a TV or other external screen. The SD card reader makes the Chromebook a roadworthy companion for traveling photographers - offload to the SSD drive and you have a clear card for the next day or project. The Chromebook can pass files to Google Drive, Dropbox, or some other storage location later. Opening the case turns the Chromebook on. Within seconds, the user is prompted to log in. No more waiting around for the computer to boot up. Chrome starts up after a successful login. The Chrome browser might have detractors in some camps, but I have yet to find a site that fails to load or loads strangely. The display is bright and has a matte finish. Colors look great and images are very sharp. It may not be the best display available in the laptop or tablet market, but it impresses for the price. A chiclet style keyboard handles the alphanumeric entry chores. Keys are not backlit, but they are nicely sized and spaced. Chromebooks modify the typical laptop keyboard layout, but there isn't too much to complain about. I found it easy to get used to the layout changes as the Chromebook became my day-to-day internet surfing device. The star of the device may be the trackpad. It made a "no buttons" convert out of me. It is very responsive, but not prone to phantom touches. It isn't overly sensitive, but appropriately so, If one is in the market for a Chromebook - and be sure to do some homework beforehand to know if the device's niche is where you want to be - then the Samsung XE303C12-A01US is THE BEST option in the marketplace. Samsung deserves major kudos for creating a Chromebook that distinguishes itself on a shelf of lookalike products.

I like the screen, my shots come out true color or back and white every time no adjusting. There is no messing around with updates, and there are a lot of good editing programs available for it. Definitely worth the price and I have recommended it to several friends.

I purchased the Chromebook after my laptop monitor broke. Because my home and work are both strong in wifi, I am able to use my Chromebook most places. Without internet I can still use it to read documents. The cost is ideal, but be careful with the laptop. I dropped it once and the corner plastic broke off. I also had a problem early on about the screen whiting out and freezing, but quickly sent it to Samsung and they had it back in 3 days for free.

This is the future

By kiko66613 from Iligan, Philippines on 05/19/2014


Pros:

Inexpensive, Bright Display, Realistic Color, Lightweight

Cons:

Limited Offline Apps, I Fear Breaking The Pastic Casing

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

From the time my brother purchased the Chromebook for me, I was saddened because when he opened it, somebody already took the GDrive additional free storage. It was on standby for a few weeks because of that disappointment. But when I started using it, and realized that I can do some minor tweaks to it, I was overwhelmed by the power it holds. I realized that most of my work and transactions and even schooling activities are done online, and this device is just exactly what I needed to do all them. From simple tasks like word processing, spreadsheets and presentations, to programming and photo editing. I could not believe I could do them with this device. I have been recommending it to my friends and co-faculty members of my school (MSU-Iligan Institute of Technology). Sadly, the Chromebook device is not yet available here in Philippine shores, but I can see that many of them are convinced to use this device. They are telling me that when it becomes available here in Philippine stores, they will go for it, the very affordable price and the powerful specs what attracted them most.

An excellent cloud computing device

By Anonymous from Minneapolis on 05/19/2014


Pros:

Lightweight, Durable, Bright Display, Inexpensive

Cons:

Speakers Not Durable

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this Chromebook because many online apps have improved along with the Chrome OS. For the price, you can do nearly everything that any other computer can do. The display is far larger than a netbook and the keyboard is spacious. I like the quick start time and the ease of use with Google Drive. The only issue I have had is that I chromecasted music from my chromebook and somehow they connection broke, leaving my laptop blasting music. It blew my speakers. So a word to the wise, keep your volume low when chromecasting. The only thing that would make this device perfect for every use is if it had a larger hard drive and had Android OS integrated with it. Then you could install apps on it like a tablet. Otherwise, it gets the job done overall. I'm looking forward to future improvements between Google and Samsung on their computers.

I am a first time computer user and this chromebook helped me get over my 'fear' of technology. It is easy to learn and the best part is no worries about upkeep or updates. This has opened a whole new world to me. Other computers are intimidating because they expect you to have knowledge of how to use and maintain the system. With my chromebook it is as easy as turning it on and looking for what you want. Thank you for making the scary world of technology accessible to everyone.

Great for beginners

By NogNog from Colorado, USA on 05/19/2014


Pros:

Lightweight, Inexpensive

Cons:

Poor Quality

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This product like any other chrome product is mainly best for kids who are starting to learn about the web. Its price range is reasonable enough you won't scream at your kids for beating it to submission. It is good for web research and browsing.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Big fan of the chromebook however when opening the chromebook make sure you dont do it from the corners. Tried doing it that way and the glass cracked easily. Under warrenty and it was fixed but a bit flimsy in that area. Otherwise a great little laptop.

Not Good For a Student

By Megan1985 from Saint Cloud, MN, USA on 05/19/2014


Pros:

Inexpensive, Lightweight, Bright Display

Cons:

Does Not Run A Compatible Operating System, Did Not Meet Expectations

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I'm a graduate student and I needed a computer to email, listen to music, peruse the web, and type papers. However, the operating system does not allow for useful programs for students, like Microsoft Office, to be installed. Therefore, I could not complete my homework in a timely fashion and to the extent that my professors expected of me. As a result, I had to return the Chromebook and buy a used laptop,

Fantastic

By Tenedorr from Undisclosed on 05/19/2014


Pros:

Durable, Realistic Color, Inexpensive, Bright Display, Lightweight

Cons:

Not High Def

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've owned this for two years almost and it's never let me down. It's always really fast and never have to deal with virus' or anything to that effect. Outstanding web browser. The only downfall is you cant have Itunes on it. Also been dealing with issues connecting it to an external monitor via usb but whatever just get chromecast and problem solved. Overall value is great and when/if this ever dies I'm getting another one. Totally would recommend it to anyone.

Samsung Chromebook 11.6" (16 GB, Samsung Exynos 5 Dual, 1.7 GHz, 2 GB)...

By GregTech from Undisclosed on 05/19/2014

Durable, Bright Display, Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Lightweight

Cons:

Slow Processor

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is an amazing computer I can't stop telling people and friends about how much I enjoy my samsung chromebook. however there are a few issues that has been corrected with the samsung chromebook 2 so I feel no need to mention them what so ever this product Is great for and dose what is says it will simple fast portal to the internet. I love it but I also love runescape and html 5 and I will be getting the samsung chromebook 2 with an octa core and 4gb of ram ASAP! If samsung has any deals feel free to inform me, anyways back to the review I highly recommend if you need something light and fast but you hate the wrist cramps that tablets give you. don't expect to game on this thing as even cut the rope freezes due to the dual core inside but videos music,muti-media and seemingly all non- java, unity and some html 5 applications and games work flawlessly(which is java programs that do not need access to your computer small html 5 games and apps and every flash and shockwave game and application!) so my verdict a 4 outta 5 if it can do exe, unity java and alest some mid end gaming the samsung chromebook 2 will get a 5 out of 5 and with linux and chrome it already has

Good but Flimsy

Pros:

Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive, Lightweight

Cons:

Not Durable/strong, Poor Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I LOVE my chromebook, however the SD card slot and the headphone jack plastic has broken off. I am not rough with it so it disappoints me that it broke so easily. However I never notice lag, and I love the "Macbook Air design". When I bought it it was the lightest chromebook available. It is SUPER light and can be held easily with one hand (Unlike most laptops/devices). I would recommend this to anyone, especially those who use a Google Ecosystem (google docs).

I like it but do not love it

By lourdgoogoo from Undisclosed on 05/19/2014


Pros:

Inexpensive, Battery Life

Cons:

Not High Def, Underpowered

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this machine primarily to supplement my existing Windows laptop and desktop. For that it has been excellent. When I need to just browse the web I prefer it to any of my other devices (phone, tablet, laptop, PC, etc.) I can flip it open and be surfing in less time than it takes to browse on my phone. The battery lasts all morning, then I charge it at lunch and use it the rest of the day. I love the low price. The keyboard and trackpad are much better than I expected. The screen is view-able from many angles and is anti-glare. I like the lack of a hard disk and the security of the OS. However, there are 2 significant downsides. My main complaint is that while the physical size is okay, the 1366x768 resolution is just too low. I would have paid a little extra for a 1440x900 display. Some pages and forms just need a few more vertical pixels. The screen is wide enough, but I often need to scroll up and down much more than I would like. The second issue is that at times it is a little under powered. When I have many tabs open or pages use a lot of flash, it tends to bog down. It could use a tiny bit more memory and CPU power. For my purposes, it is not a substitute for a full fledged PC or laptop. There are certain things that it does not do well, but I can live with the shortcomings. The power adapter is a bit flimsy. I would have liked the ability to charge from a USB port. Additionally, the video on some websites does not play. Overall, it was just a good value for the money. I use it much more than I thought I would when I bought it. Hopefully future models will have better displays and more memory at a still reasonable price

This Product is excellent for someone on the move.

By TechGeek42014 from Weymouth, MA, USA on 05/19/2014


Pros:

Inexpensive, Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Anyone who wants fast start-ups and free applications will love the features of the Chromebook. You need access to WiFi so you need to use it where there is free service or buy your own Portable Hot Spot which will have a monthly service fee but will be more secure than a free unsecured network. All in all a good buy!

I love my Samsung Chromebook due to the fact that for less than half the cost of a windows tablet I get a nice display and a standard keyboard. Tat' not all; Google gives you everything you need to communicate personally or professionally and you don't have to buy the software!

Good but not great

By Johnnythegeek from Mount Morris, IL 61054, USA on 05/18/2014


Pros:

Inexpensive, Lightweight

Cons:

Exynos 5 Cpu

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Set your expectations low enough on a $250 notebook and you will be happy with the Chromebook. But make no mistake, its not without compromises. I have owned two, my first lost WiFi so I sent it in and Samsung service depot lost it. Best they could tell it went to someone else?? I got a refund from the retailer on Amazon. I waited a few months before buying another. I like the Samsung but its ARM processor the Exynos 5 while being cool and not needing a fan and providing good battery life are all positives. It quickly loses steam with multi tabs open. This hardware truly is not anything to brag on for performance. I have no problem with Chrome OS. It is a very light OS with limits, but that really helps the weak hardware. Keyboard is fine, touchpad is OK but needs more settings. Speakers are worthless mounted on bottom, and headphones help but volume still seems weak? Display is just OK and is not bright enough for outdoor work. For an inexpensive web access device. I find it more enjoyable over a tablet.

If you know what you're buying it is terrific

By Commuted from San Jose, CA, USA on 04/24/2014


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very happy using it for internet, banking and mail. It can be wiped and logging out protects your account. Just log in with a new machine and everything is back if it's lost or stolen. Google Docs is pretty good. The spell check works out obscure things like movie titles that are misspelled intentionally. There's a way to put Linux on it too. I've been thinking of getting a 2nd Chromebook for Linux. If you don't know what you're buying you can make a mistake. There are some issues. Some Google features don't work. You cannot upload music to Google, but it plays very well and you can buy music OK. It's not clear if the Bluetooth works with mice. The Samsung Bluetooth mouse is not included as an accessory option. Because the USB ports are in the back, adding a wireless mouse (works great) can wear out the connector when the unit is tipped up. The screen capture is built in so don't use an app. Learn the shortcuts, it's worth it.

Click a Nerd - Gives 2 Thumbs Up - Great Product

By ClickaNerd from Texas on 04/11/2014


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Durable, Lightweight, Awesome Keyboard And Touch-pad Design, Bright Display, Inexpensive, Realistic Color

Cons:

No Light-up Key Board

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We have purchased thousands of computers over the past 25 years. This Chromebook is the best value without any performance trade-off, hands down. Our remote technicians all use the Chromebook. The operating system is flawless and it boots at lightning speed. The button design is very useful as compared to the usual F1,F12 keyboard layout. If it had a light-up keyboard it would be perfect. Samsung hit a home-run with this model.

Best On-Line device I've Ever Owned

By Anonymous from Exeter, NH, USA on 03/12/2014


Pros:

Lightweight, Chrome Docs Accessible On Other Equipment, Realistic Color, Inexpensive, Durable, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I wanted a light laptop I could take around with me. I was planning to spend a grand + on an airbook. Then I saw the Samsung Chromebook which has all the characteristics of an airbook at a quarter the price. I've owned this now for about 3 weeks and let me tell you, when you open it, it is ON. No waiting for software to load. As nothing but Chrome is running on the hard drive it can't get viruses. It's rugged, beautiful and weighs about 3 lbs so not only is it easy to take to a coffee shop but I can work with it anywhere in the house or the garden too. The keyboard is fast. You can tap easily into any open network. The battery life is about 6 hours on a charge, better than any other computer I've ever had. I'm a writer and the Google docs works just like Word plus anything I write on the Chromebook is accessible on my desktop computer through the cloud with no additional steps. The two-way camera is great and you can edit pictures on the Chromebook too. If you're editing video, or audio, or maintaining an mp3 library this may not be the only computer you'll need. But if you primarily answer email, use Facebook or Twitter or Linkedin or Google, pay bills and shop on line, you really don't need anything but a Chromebook.

Bottom Line:

The Samsung Chromebook has got to be the best computer I've got my hands on! It really doesn't look like much with only two gigs of ram, a dule core processor and a sixteen gig ssd, but this thing really, really, rocks! What I really love about it is that I can use it with a screen reader right out of the box by using just one keystroke.

Cons:

Don't let the price full you -- you get more than your moneys worth with the Samsung Chromebook. I bought this in December,2013 for my wife as a Christmas present. she was impressed with weight, how fast it boots up, battery life and how easy it was to learn its features. She has only two complaints (1) wishes screen was larger but understands that it would increase the weight and (2) that I keep stealing it from her.

I love how easy it is to carry around school My main objective was that I had a regular laptop,super havy, I had to carry around campus. I bought an Ipad but felt the need to carry a wireless keboard half the price of this pupp. I use my chrome book for school and the price on it has left me a ease to bring it to school everyday and use the most of it. I am just beyond excited with all I can do with this baby. I write on my google doc. everytime i have papers due and just transfer them to the school system by copying and pasting !! Great job Samsung.! love it so much I might buy my boyfrined one, because they are suppoer affordable .. Also I just ordered my chromecast!

Not a bad machine for the price.

By cactusmoe from Twin Falls, ID on 02/15/2014


Pros:

Inexpensive, Lightweight

Cons:

Accessing Printers Can Be Difficult., Small Screen

I needed to get a new laptop for work. While waiting for a salesperson to help me I noticed the Samsung Chromebook. The price is what first attracted me and the design. The screen is a bit small, but I love how light it is. I didn't really understand the whole concept when I first saw it and I thought I had made a mistake after I purchased it and started using it at work. But I quickly caught on and I love that I can easily retrieve documents from my phone and tablet. The only drawbacks are needing to go through a Windows computer to access the printer. Occasionally, I can't print until I re-add the printer to my Google profile. The second one is the small screen. Though I am able to mirror my information on a larger screen fairly easily. This comes in handy when I have clients.

Going completely Chromebook

Pros:

Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Durable, Inexpensive

Cons:

Could Use More Ram, Slight Lag From Time To Time

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this Chromebook to see if I could function with nothing but a Chromebook. After a couple of months of use, I was easily able to live without my Windows laptop easily for my personal life. My work life required some Windows specific applications, however those things are about to not be in issue as we move most of our operations to the cloud. Since I basically live in Chrome as a browser on all my computers - personal and work - making the transition to a Chromebook was easy.

Samsung Chromebook

By lovingnononsense from New Orleans on 02/03/2014


Pros:

Inexpensive, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought the Chromebook for my husband after a friend had showed us his Samsung Chromebook and told us how much he liked it. Admittedly, I partially bought it for myself, because I don't have a keyboard for my tablet. I have enjoyed using it myself. The Chromebook's size and lightweight design make it convenient to carry around and use. The sleek design is attractive. The keyboard is simple and makes sense. I like that the designers changed a couple of the keys to reduce clutter - I feel I use all the keys and what they did made sense. Of course, the ability to play Netflix and use HDMI are great features. The speakers sound great. It boots up fast and seems to have a strong connection with the wifi. It fits my husband's needs perfectly - no nonsense features, including keyboard, quick start-up, fast internet search, portability, cloud capabilities and all for a no nonsense price.

Best computer ever

By bendgirl from Oregon on 01/19/2014


Pros:

It Always Works, Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Durable, Realistic Color, Inexpensive, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've owned many desktop computers and laptops and tablets. This is the most frustration-free and useful computer I've ever owned. Everything works just like it should, every time! I manage two websites, and that is easy on this device. I browse all day, watch Netflix a lot, email, write and access Google Drive documents and share them with others...I can't think of anything I'd use a computer for that I can't do with this one. It's fast. There's no waiting for endless updates. It's simple. (My 93 year old mother has one and it works great for her also.) It's light. The price is excellent. I really can't find any drawbacks to this computer and I while I have another laptop I kept as a backup when I first got this Chromebook, I never use it. A great product.

Pros:

Lightweight, Bright Display, Durable, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive

Cons:

Nothing At All

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best purchase I ever made, although it did take some getting used to. Once you get over the fact that you are not using a traditional laptop you will love this thing. Boot times are super fast, web page load times are fast, battery lasts more than 6 hours, and really you never need to reboot this thing. Its light and the small form factor makes it very easy to travel with. I definitely recommend this Chromebook.

Pros:

Portable, Bright Display, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Durable

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love my Chromebook! It is so light, fast, and portable. I have a protective sleeve to slip over it , then it just fits in my bookbag and I'm ready to go. Battery life seems great. My old laptap never has done well running on battery, but the Chromebook does great.

I love this product for what it is. If you're thinking you're getting a full laptop, this product is not for you. But if you do know what you are getting then I would definitely recommend this chrome book.

Highest Compliment - Kids are Fighting over it

By Brontegirl509 from Chicago, IL on 11/03/2013


Pros:

Inexpensive, Lightweight, Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Gives Kids A Reason To Learn To Type, Durable, Realistic Color

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My husband and I both have Samsung phones and love them so we already knew that Samsung makes quality products. When my eldest daughter's school went to this model for one to one computing and to replace textbooks for the lower class men, I researched this piece of technology because I thought we might have been required to purchase one. She wound up not being part of the group that uses one to one computing since she is a senior this year. The school chose to phase them in with freshmen and sophomores. Turns out that my middle child, a 12-year old, already uses this type of device in school. He had been trying to lay his hands on my husband's laptop for school assignment. (They use google docs.) My husband didn't like to have to give up his laptop so I got our son a Chromebook, just like what he will need in high school. When I opened the Chromebook, my son knew just how to use it for his school projects. I'm the one who made him charge it overnight before he could use it and he was raring to go. I only had to show him a few setup items on it but it works fine. He is learning how to touch type better and likes not having to write his reports out on paper first. He says it saves him a lot of time. We also have a 7-year old who is using the chromebook for some of her school enrichment assignments. I can't seem to wrestle the thing away from either of them. I like that the keyboard is a little smaller than a standard keyboard. It seems to fit younger and older hands equally well. The battery lasts the whole day and we charge it at night. I liked the fact that this is half the price of a laptop computer and that I wouldn't have to constantly make sure they update virus packages and such. I also bought a protective cover for this because I was concerned about durability and scratches on the finish. This model has so many third party options for covers and that is another nice thing about it. Our 7-year old's school buys several subscriptions that work well on the chromebook. She can read books on Raz-kids and complete her reading logs. There are several more websites and apps that she uses. Samsung has got us though but in a good way. When your kids are practically fighting over something it means they like it. We will be buying another one for our 7-year old since they are seeming to both want to use this tool at the same time. The best return on my investment was when my son brought his report card home. All As and Bs and I think helping him with his access to educational tools was a big part of it.

Perfect College Computer

By CollegeStudentUB from Bridgeport, CT on 10/28/2013


Pros:

Bright Display, Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers, Cloud Storage System, Long Battery Life, Lightweight, Realistic Color

Cons:

Easily Scratches

Perfect for college in which your constantly moving from class to class and taking notes. Great battery life, starts up in a few seconds, and have rarely had issues in which I could not use it due to lack of internet connections. Great for the price and exactly what I need for college. No need to carry around a heavy laptop, and have yet to have to switch to a desktop. If your looking for a tablet, this is not for you, but if your looking for a laptop that has the portability of a tablet, the chromebook has the best bang for its bucks.

Fantastic value in a well built Chromebook

By SFCHROMIE from SF Bay Area on 10/25/2013


Pros:

Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color, Durable, Inexpensive, Good Looking Attention Getter, Bright Display, Lightweight, Nice And Thin

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had the Series 3 Chromebook for almost one year. It has been very reliable and fun to use. Also, very productive as Google has made improvements to Chrome OS during the period I've owned it. It delivers on the promise of getting faster. It crashed once during the first week of use but has been problem free ever since. Note, I have only been on the Stable channel. Keep up the good work Samsung !!

Impressive Performance for the Price

By tmcclelland47 from Undisclosed on 08/27/2013


Pros:

Inexpensive, Bright Display, Incredible Speakers, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers

Cons:

Plastic Body, Not High Def, Display Isn't The Best

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

For the price, you simply can't go wrong. Some spots get hot when you're pushing it, though. The battery lasts quite a while, the display is decent, and it performs well. Sometimes it can't squeeze out enough performance and it slows down, but not bad. The display isn't the best, and sometimes I can see lines going across the screen especially with text near the edges of the display. The brightness can range from off to retina-burning. And for the size of the speakers, the sound is INCREDIBLE. Overall, this is a great notebook for most high school/college students, and works great and is pretty fast.

Great Value!

By Tgerb from California on 08/23/2013


Pros:

Lightweight, Inexpensive

I bought the chromebook to travel with and it's so light and portable. I love the minimalistic keyboard. I used it for class and you can almost do everything you would need from a regular laptop. Browsing, movies, and music works great. I had some trouble with the SD port (it kept freezing). It doesn't preform incredibly fast but you shouldn't need to do much heavy computing on this thing. It's a little flimsy, but for the price you can't beat it.

This may be the best computing device I've ever had!

By Steev0 from Jersey City, NY on 08/20/2013


Pros:

Bright Display, Excellent Quality, Built-in Speakers, Durable, Realistic Color, Lightweight, Inexpensive, Great Battery Life, Super Fast

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this device on a whim through Amazon based on the many positive reviews that were posted. I was in need of a new laptop and was really not impressed with any of the current Windows offerings, yet didn't want to shell out tons of money for a high end device. I'll admit, I was a bit apprehensive with cutting the cord from the folks at Redmond but what really did I have to lose with the price of this device. When I received my machine I was more than impressed with the build quality. Although it is mostly plastic, this machine is solid. The keyboard is excellent and can honestly be compared to that of a Mac Book Air (seriously.) The battery life is super impressive and the lightness of the laptop is truly a feat in itself. The Google Chrome OS environment is something in itself. The speed of the web applications are great and provide a plethora of applications one would need for normal day to day computing. Word processor - check! Spreadsheets - check! Mail - Check! Super fast browser - Check! Chrome Remote Desktop works superbly, especially when having to connect to my work laptop (which unfortunately is using Windows.) If you're using LogMeIn, that works exceptionally well too. I know I sound like a fan boy right now, but I've honestly never thought I would be a Chrome OS convert. This device has everything I need and Samsung seals the deal with building a great device. Thank you Samsung and Google for changing the world of computing! This is the future folks, don't get left behind!

Great little machine

By ocbro13 from Undisclosed on 08/20/2013


Pros:

Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers, Lightweight, Durable

Cons:

Not High Def

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

For the price this is the best computer for traveling considering all you want to do is surf the internet and watch movies. I usually throw a bunch of movies on a thumb drive for the plane ride. Recently I had to buy another Chromebook because mine crashed, I just sent it in to be serviced so we will see how Samsung's warranty works out. My second one I bought restarts randomly while trying to use it which is really annoying, but with a practically instant boot time its not to bad. I feel that my bad luck with my 2 Chromebooks is rare and would recommend this product. Hopefully Samsung comes through with my warranty issues and I will raise to 5 stars.

Pros:

Durable, Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive, Insane Battery Life, Bright Display, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this at my local best buy. I was looking at this or the HP Chromebook. Don't waste your money on the HP!!!!! This thing even though made of plastic feels amazing. Keyboard is better than a Mac. 2GB of ram on this thing are all you really should need for your everyday browsing. Google's alternatives to on board apps are amazing. If you are a more modern computer user this is all you need. This is coming from a student. This does everything I could ever have expected and wanted it to. And then a lot more.

I love this chromebook! I'm actually typing with it right now and it is amazing! The only bad thing about its design is that it gets scratched easily i had it for a day and put it in my bag but by the time i pulled it out it was scratched. But that shouldn't stop you from getting this laptop. It really is fast and really light! The keyboard is great, and overall this is a great computer!

By dngpsu from Pittsburgh, PA on 06/22/2013


Pros:

Solid Battery Life, Lightweight, Inexpensive

Cons:

Display Is Serviceable-at-best

My wife purchased the Chromebook as a Father's Day/Birthday gift. So far I have been pleasantly surprised by the device and how much I like to use it. Great for entertainment and web surfing while on the couch. The wife likes I can still be with the family while going on a computer. I have found it to be much more productivity-oriented than I would have anticipated.

Battery is garbage

Pros:

Lightweight

Cons:

Battery Is Dead After 3 Mos

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've owned my Chromebook since Mar 2013 and it is now Jun 2013 and the battery is no longer working. Nothing gripes me more than to have to take everything down to the Post Office and send this garbage back to the Samsung repairman. The battery needs to be removable, especially if you are going to have problems with it. Battery has decided that it will no longer recharge and it is slowly dying day after day.

Pros:

Bottom Line:

I purchased this Chromebook back in November. After using it for only a short period of time, I ditched my Netbook, laptop, and tablet. It boots fast and runs just as fast. The battery life is excellent - I take it to work and don't bother bringing the charger. It gets more than the advertised 6hrs (unless I am watching video). I don't think you can get a better computer for the price.

She did not know anything about computers before this. But she loves this one. Very at ease with it. She is getting along with this just great. Easy for her to use. I have been testing it and using everything I can and can't find anything wrong with it. I love it better than my Laptop.

I have only had this for 4 days, but so far I love it! I was looking for something to replace a Netbook and this is it! I wanted something light weight and slim design. Couldn't ask for more with the Chromebook. After seeing Ipads, this product is lighter, despite having a larger screen, and you have a full keyboard! Win Win! As a Chrome user to start, this product just makes everything all that much easier. My phone, my laptop, desktop are all exactly the same. All my information is at my fingertips right out of the box! No set up. No installing software. Everything is just there and ready to use! Chromebook starts immediately upon opening the cover. Battery life is amazing. Once it is fully charged, after using it for over 2 hours, my battery life was still over 85% despite it not being plugged in. Awesome! Screen is very easy to look at. I had read that some folks were having trouble with the viewing angle. I use this on my lap, and have moved it around and no matter where it is (on my lap) I have had no trouble at all with viewing. If it is not plugged in, the screen does become a bit dimmer..just an FYI, however, I didn't find it bothersome. The keyboard is easier to use than my laptop or netbook. It is much like a desktop keyboard. (I do need to learn some of the shortcuts, like caps lock as there is no capslock key.) I have always had a problem using trackpads. I tried using a wireless mouse with it just to see how it worked., and it was a bit sluggish. However, I really am not having any issues with the trackpad. It is very large, so it is easy to use. The number and selection of apps are great, and they are all free!!!! Were I pressed to find an issue with this? It would be that I'd rather see the AC input on the side, rather than the back of the unit so that it wasn't 'in the way'. But since the battery lasts so long, you don't need it to be plugged in that often! For the money, it is amazing. I plan on selling both my laptop and netbook. I really cannot say enough good things about the Chromebook. Excellent product!

Probably the Coolest Thing You Will Ever Find In This Price Point

By vw1991529 from Topeka,Ks on 03/12/2013


Pros:

Realistic Color, Bright Display, Lightweight, Durable, Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Being a frequent SAMSUNG user and having all of the google apps on my android devices made the decision to buy this an easy one. The computer looks very small on display but once you sit down with it you can seamlessly adapt to its extremely well laid out keyboard and large responsive track pad. My only wish is that it had a caps lock button as it has been replaced with a instant search button. Also I would advise anyone who purchases it to be sure you have a "cloud ready" printer. The OS seems to have a long list of problems with old fashioned printers.

Hands down, best laptop.

By alexklptrck from Newport, Oregon on 02/09/2013


Pros:

Durable, Realistic Color, Apps, Lightweight, Bright Display, Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers, Battery Life

Cons:

Netflix

I just recently got this computer and by my expectations, it is great. I have had such horrible luck with computers in the past, I didn't know what to think. I had to look everywhere for one and you just about couldn't find them in any store. They could just be ordered online, so I thought "Great, here I go again. Ordering something that will become completely useless.", I then got the computer in the mail. It is hands down, one beast of a machine. It powers through everything it is told to do. The apps that you can get for it are something else. I never thought a computer could be this quick. Normally when researching something I look it up off of my smartphone but now, I find myself reaching more and more for the chromebook. It is lightning quick, takes 3 seconds for mine to power on. Sure I have hit a few speed bumps. like Adobe Flash Player not working but I quickly fixed that one. The other thing is not being able to use Netflix off of this awesome device. That is the only thing that I see wrong with the computer and when that gets fixed, this will be by far the best computer I have ever owned. Sure all the reviews that are on the internet say that the chromebook will be a great secondary computer, I think it is so much more than that and if get one you will see how right they went with this product! The main reason why I got it was because I needed a computer, not a "secondary device" as people call it, like it's a luxury. I needed something quick and I needed something fast so I decided the chromebook was the way to go. I have read so many bad reviews about the Samsung chromebook and I have came to the conclusion that they have either gotten a bad lemon out of the batch or they just didn't know what they were getting themselves into, I think that chromebook is great. In my opinion, if you are thinking about buying one. Just go out and get it. You really won't go wrong and your wallet will thank you!

Best value and functionality ever.

This has been my number one device since I bought it last October. So easy, fast and not complicated. Love it. In light of such enthusiasm, just purchased the top of the line Series 5 Chromebook by Samsung. Will have to do a comparison soon. Anyhow I would recommend Samsung products very highly and a chromebook or 2 to really enjoy a connected lifestyle without any complications. Device has comparable if not better business and work related applications. Love the idea of the cloud access too.

Chromebook Is a Great Value!

By GalaxyFan05 from Evansville, IN. on 01/28/2013


Pros:

Syncs Seamlessly With Googles Products., Great Value For The Money., Lightweight, Bright Display, Start-up Time, Inexpensive

Bottom Line:

Very good laptop for the money. This little device does it all but the distinguishing feature that sets this Chromebook apart from all others is boot time. In less than 8 seconds I'm up and running. Love it! Getting two years of 100 GB of storage was a nice gift from Google as well. Very portable computer with no cumbersome cord to remain plugged in all the time.

The build quality is top notch, very light and love the smoothness of the texture. The keyboard is one of the best keyboards for a chromebook. This is a pretty speedy device, which I like. There maybe a few hiccups, but it doesn't bother me too much. Overall, this is a great buy for anyone who is always online.

By stupidpeoplemakememad from Undisclosed on 01/24/2013


Cons:

No Accesories

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My girlfriend bought this computer for school. It amazes me that Google and Samsung would spend millions on making and selling a product and not making extra parts for replacements. There is no way to acquire a charger for this computer if damaged. you have to send the whole computer back just for a charger. they did not make the chrome book compatible with any other charger they make. if i would have none that i wouldn't have recommended. And for that i give it one star.

Value and OS

By tdellava94 from Undisclosed on 01/17/2013


Pros:

Hdmi Port, Durable, Lightweight, Bright Display, Realistic Color, Built-in Speakers, Inexpensive

Cons:

Netflix Does Not Work On It As Of January 2013, Webcam Not Very Good

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

If you are coming from any OS other than Chrome, there is a big difference. Most obvious is that you can't install software like you can on a PC or Mac, but the advantages are huge. The computer powers up in about 10 seconds, the keyboard is really easy to type on even with large hands, the battery life is astounding, and the HDMI port is a great bonus. Also, the hard drive space, while not large, is not a problem. Everything is backed up to a 100GB online cloud drive so you will never run out of space and if you happen to run out, you can just pick up an external hard drive. The computer also comes with an anti-virus that Google pre-installed and it isn't a trial, it is a full anti-virus. All in all, the benefits that come with the computer are too many to list and greatly outweigh the cons.

Non-techie offering praises

By ResLife4Life from Rhode Island on 01/12/2013


Pros:

Inexpensive, Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Realistic Color

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Chromebook is fast and light. Open the lid, and it begins starting up. Within 10-20 seconds, you are at the log on screen. You log on with your Gmail account and connect to a wifi internet signal (there is no ethernet port on this model). The Chromebook automatically updates your computer to the newest version of the Chrome operating system, so you do not have to worry about buying and upgrading every few years like you might with Windows et al. Also, you are protected by Google's virus protection, which is also updated, so you do not have to buy your own. You are now ready to roll. Surf the internet using Google Chrome, check your Gmail or YouTube accounts, and launch other Google applications right from the bottom of your screen. There is no other pre-loaded software (nor is there a CD disc drive to add some on this model). There are two USB ports, one HDMI port and one SD port (for camera memory cards). This is not a laptop designed to replace your computer with word processing, presentation and other software. But if you are comfortable using Google Drive (formerly Docs), then you do not need the newest version of Microsoft Office. There is an option, which I have not tried yet, to connect your Chromebook remotely to another computer's desktop and allow you to work on that computer while using the Chromebook. If this works the way I think it does, I would not need anything but my Chromebook with me, and my other computer(s) plugged in and connected to the internet somewhere in the world. This is a great, cheap computer to get on and off the internet, which I think most people use their computers for these days. I am not sure how big the hard drive is, but most stuff will be stored in the cloud, anyway. It has very few applications to bog it down, so it runs fast. The USB drives are handy for connecting external devices, if you want/need them. The battery lasts a good long time. To shut it down, just hold the power button for four seconds. I have only encountered two problems so far: 1. I work on a college campus, and their internet protocols are wacky. I could not figure out how to connect to the internet, and had to take it to the IT department. They were stymied a short while, as they had not had exposure to the Chromebook yet. Once they figured it out, though, I have not had a problem since (the IT people also commented that they were impressed with the device). 2. There is a bug affecting many Chromebooks that if you shut the lid without powering down, or if you let it go into sleep mode, it will not come back on without you having to "hard reset" the Chromebook (hold the power button ten seconds). The designers are working on a fix, and once found, it will be automatically installed to all affected Chromebooks. I like my Chromebook, and look forward to many years of using it. I am still using my old laptop for word processing right now, but if the remote desktop works, I will exclusively use the Chromebook.

Best money i have ever spent!

By CCS2014 from Undisclosed on 01/09/2013


Pros:

Good Battery, Lightweight, Inexpensive

Cons:

Ate My Headphones

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

If you are looking for a laptop for a high school or college student, there is no better bang for your buck than the Samsung Chrome book. I was looking for something that was lightweight, had decent battery life, and could perform basic tasks such as web surfing and word processing; this thing fits the bill perfectly. It is important to know that most of the applications for this product are currently web based only (more will be available offline as time goes on) and internet access is needed for them to work; this was no issue for me because i am a college student and i have a constant WiFi connection around campus. I was amazed at how simple this device was to set up and use. The Chrome OS is extremely simple; if a person has never owned or operated a computer in their life, they will still have no problem operating a chrome book. For the small size, this device has a great keyboard that is very comfortable. The mouse pad is a bit different than usual, but an instructional video explains everything upon booting up for the first time. I have so far not had any major issues with this device, but there is one thing that i found a bit odd. All of the ports on my chrome book feel a bit tight. I had a bit of difficulty putting in a flash drive the first few times and i broke a pair of headphones off in the chrome book because it pulled the pin of the headphones off when i tried to unplug my headphones. I don't know if the headphones were just cheaply made and worn out from use or if my chrome book is just defective somehow but i am very delicate with my electronics and this has never happened to me before. Even though my chrome book ate my headphones, I would still seriously recommend this device for students; it fast, lightweight, and could perform all of the tasks needed to succeed in school. This would again also be a great first computer for someone because it is so simple and easy to use. I hope this review helps convince people to give chrome books a chance, I'm glad i did.

Constantly Locks Up

By Buster67 from Indianapolis on 01/05/2013


Pros:

Inexpensive

Cons:

Did Not Meet Expectations, Poor Performance

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We bought this product for our 11 year old daughter. We are completely disappointed so far with it. The mouse continually locks up and she has difficulty loading her favorite websites and watching YouTube. If we don't get resolution soon it will go back to the store for another brand. We went with Samsung because we have been impressed with the 2 Galaxy Tabs and S3s that we own, so we stuck with the brand, bad idea I guess.

I was very surprised by how well the Chromebook ran applications and sped through webpages. This was my first experience with a Chromebook device and I would highly recommend it to anyone. The boot time is incredible, and the mouse pad is very responsive. The way the Chromebook is designed with the hunch at the back can make it a little awkward to put in my bag sometimes, but besides that I am very happy with this device, the hdmi works flawlessly, and I have had not connectivity problems with Wifi. Great product!!!

Ive had Samsung produts in the past and I waited until this became avaible cause it always sold out where ever I went, no I can see why. Its very light and boots up very quick, the screen LED is bright and the management system is very simple to use. If your a heavy user of Google then this ChormeBook is for you!!!

Chrome Rocks

By techlove13 from fort collins, co on 01/02/2013


Pros:

Inexpensive, Lightweight, Realistic Color, Bright Display, Built-in Speakers

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Technological advances accelerated in a multitude of venues in 2012, including hybrids of netbooks and cloud computing. The Samsung Chromebook retails at an affordable amount, and provides multiple opportunities for users to become more acquainted with cloud computing. I needed to choose between a tablet and the Chromebook. I went with the Chromebook because it gives me access to documents, music, movies, and more. I can watch online classes, and type papers/notes at the same time. The keyboard is laid out well, and I appreciate the visual cheatsheet of shortcuts one can access. i don't like the noise from the trackpad clicks; it becomes annoying after awhile. However, this can be worked around with a usb wireless keyboard and mouse combo. The Chromebook comes equipped with three ports: HDMI, USB 2.0 & 3.0. It also has a SD card slot. It boots up quickly, and is easy enough to navigate. Those unfamliar with Google Chrome may need some additional time to learn how to navigate; however, it will not take very long. Audio is a bit muffled as the speakers are on the bottom -- not exactly well thought out in my opinion. I would have preferred the speakers on the keyboard side. However, there is a headphone jack so external speakers can be plugged in as well. The only drawback some may find is that one cannot download software and things of that sort like one does on a laptop and desktop computers. A user can use the Chromebook offline, including write emails and use Google Docs. Once a user finds wi-fi again everything will sync up. If one does not have reliable access to wi-fi for long periods of time, one may become frustrated. Overall, I would recommend this product.

The Samsung Chromebook is an great web-browsing computer, with truly long battery life, an excellent keyboard, and beautiful aesthetics. It's a cloud-enabled laptop alternative that's maintenance-free and easy to use. I've recommended it to friends and family and use it on a daily basis, since it bridges the gap between a conventional desktop PC and tablet perfectly.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am so pleased with my Chrome book. I have had lap tops before and hated them. The chrome book is perfect. The size, the weight, the speed and ease of use. I enjoy using it daily even though I have a desk top. The chrome book is fun, I can take it anywhere.....I Love it.

Another Great Google Product

By AustinChromie from Undisclosed on 12/17/2012


Pros:

Ssd, Automatic Background Updates, Lightweight, Boot Time, Inexpensive

Cons:

No Spotify

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Does require internet connectivity for full functionality but once connected it blazes through your web browsing experience. The 8 second boot time is legit. The speakers are not the greatest, but this is corrected through use of good headphones. You can enter developer mode and learn to operate/build programs on linux. Overall, I have been pleased with my ChromeBook, its a really cool product with tons of possiblities

Exciting product category

By Kaushlesh from Undisclosed on 12/05/2012


Pros:

Inexpensive, Built-in Speakers, Lightweight, Bright Display

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I fell in love with the device as soon as I got it. I always wanted an instant on device. I tried several builds of Linux, Splashtop etc. But this is amazing as its supported by Google. Being a fan of Google products, its cool product to have. I have now completely kept my 6 pound laptop at office and I just carry this around. When I need a serious productivity application, I just remote into my laptop. with a great battery life, its perfect for a whole days. Another great thing is that its inexpensive and can be used by people who dont now much about computers and mostly use PC for internet.

Great Price

By bajans from Undisclosed on 12/01/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Lightweight, Inexpensive

Don't expect any power usage out of this device, but at this price point, if all you need to do is web browsing and light office work, this is a great option.

Keyboard Seals the Deal

By ChrisON from Undisclosed on 11/30/2012


Pros:

Chrome Apps, Inexpensive, Keyboard, Lightweight

Cons:

None

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is really a great device. It is so light, gets you connected, and has a keyboard that fits your hands. It also has offline capabilities for email and google docs and other items so you are not stuck if there no wifi around. Meanwhile, most 4G smartphones are now able to be their own hotspot, so you can use that in a pinch. It is so light it can go anywhere, but just don't drop it. Mine fell from a chair to a carpeted floor (not very far) and cracked the screen.

best price performance ratio

By laptopspecialist from New Holland on 11/14/2012


Pros:

Lightweight, Built-in Speakers, Bright Display, Durable, Inexpensive, Realistic Color

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We bought the chrome in the UK , because it is not (yet) available in the rest of Europe. Everyone who sees this says, "I want one", When does this wonderful laptop becomes available in Europe !! We want to use this within big enterprizes /government. We also want to use it in our own private cloud (besides the google cloud) , so load it with ubuntu 12.04 on ARM ourselves. The only thing lacking is an ARM supported smartcard reader for strong authentication .

I love it! Super travel machine. Great value.

By 45Hugs from Northern VA on 11/13/2012


Pros:

Bright Display, Built-in Speakers, Durable, Realistic Color, Inexpensive, Lightweight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I preordered the new Samsung Chromebook and it was delivered 2 days before leaving on a 7 day trip. I downloaded an ebook and read offline on the planes and throughout trip. I got free Wi-Fi connections at both airports. The 11.6" Chromebook fits on the aircraft tray table perfectly. I love the very fast start/resume/shut down. Free Wi-Fi at the resort kept me in close contact with email and wesites for election news. We watched Boardwalk Empire on HBOGO at the resort. Even though their Wi-Fi signal was weak, with limited bandwidth, the video played smoothly with only a few buffering pauses. I am looking forward to Netflix support for the ARM processor. I've been using cloud services for years and so far the new Samsung Chromebook has done everything I need or want it to. It's replacing a (relatively) heavy 15" notebook around the house and is much more convenient and comfortable on my lap. The keyboard and trackpad are the best I've ever used. So far I haven't found the need to fire up a notebook or use my home office desktop for anything. Since I have multiple Windows PCs available at home and always have a smartphone on travel, the Wi-Fi only aspect of the new Chromebook will not be an issue for me.

Requires a different mindset... But well worth it!

By tigjimmy from Columbus, OH on 11/10/2012


Pros:

Great Keyboard, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Solid Mousepad

Cons:

Limited Functionality Offline

I've had my chromebook for about 3 weeks and love it. I've been using it at night around the house as a 2nd computer (4 kids makes time on the home computer a little tight) and it is perfect for this use. I've also used it around my office in meetings to take notes instead of in a notebook. Offline google docs works great for this. Only 4 stars on the "features" because you're really limited if offline... But this is rather infrequent so its not a big deal for me. Definitely worth a try!

Excellent as cheap laptops go

By cjbnc from Raleigh, NC on 11/08/2012


Pros:

Quiet, Lightweight, Inexpensive

Cons:

One-button Touchpad

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I wanted a livingroom web browser, my old windows laptop is dying. The chromebook is much better, lighter, longer battery life. My only complaint so far is the touchpad doesn't do right-click very easily. I wish it had two buttons (left and right) like most pads.
