Summary: I got one of these refurbished from Amazon for about $139. Great screen, very fast. I have one to a friend whose 10 year old daughter would destroy everyone's computer by downloading or running games. She has had it for 6 months, lives with it, she can not hurt it. I bought another for myself. I do not use it much, but because it works on WiFi I think it's a great thing to take into Starbucks, etc. Fast, good keyboard and screen, and for $139 who cares it it walks away.
Summary: Excellent laptop all through the board! Processes commands quickly Efficient Simple Fast Great value for the money I have to say that I am simply amazed for what I got for the hundred dollars that I paid. I must say I was a bit worried at first considering how cheap the laptop was but when I received it, plugged the charger in & connected to my Wi-Fi, the system was good to go from the start.
Summary: This is a nice laptop. I was looking for a bare-bones machine and found this computer at a discounted price. It's my first chromebook and I'm very pleased with my purchase. As many have mentioned, this isn't a conventional laptop. It assumes that you'll be doing most of your work in the cloud. With a wifi connection, it surfs the Internet and opens files quickly. It also boots up in several seconds. One major drawback of the C710-2856 is its battery life.
Decent for the price would shop around for lower price though

Summary: Pretty decent buy, pretty fast, strictly for internet use, battery life not as good as I was hoping for, really fast start up, would definitely recommend for streaming however you will wind up using the power cable after about 2.5 hrs. no left or right button strictly touch/click pad makes it more difficult to copy and past.
