Summary: UPDATE to previous review:: I purchased the chromebook in December of last year. Since I was going to be traveling all around the United States, I needed something that could update reliably and directly onto a cloud. The chromebook was a perfect candidate, and indeed measured up to my expectations. Granted, this chromebook is effectively a paperweight with internet-access, I had found it a relatively reliable paperweight until last week.
Summary: product worked great. factory reconditioned but worked as well as a new unit and looked very clean. great for second computer or for someone not very experienced with computers.very easy to use and no routine maintenance required
Just right for watching streaming video on your TV

Summary: I bought this laptop so that I could watch streaming video of online sporting events on my TV, by connecting DVI and audio cables between the two. I'd been having trouble using my desktop for the same purpose, because my video card would not give me a full-screen picture, but instead cut it off in a letterbox format, which it would not expand to full screen even when I'd made all the correct adjustments in the control panel.

Summary: I'm writing this on the above unit. I bought this used but still had the 100gb of cloud storage available for free for the next two years. After that, subject to price change, is less than $24 per year and if you don't pay, you don't loose anything already stored there, you just cannot add anything new. Don't know about modifying what you already have there. I did lots of research, particularly via YouTube on Chromebooks before purchasing.
Summary: super fast, light weight and efficient. i love it! be aware it works on the Google chrome system, so is different from windows. This can take a little getting used too but all in all i love it!
