Summary: Probably the best justification for this model C720 over the Haswell models or 2 GB models is the desire to run Linux alongside ChromeOS via 'crouton'.

Summary: I absolutely love this Chromebook. I got it on Prime Day for 200$ and man what a steal! This works perfectly as a tabletish machine. I use it for media consumption(youtube and netflix) along with some light working in google docs. It starts up in seconds and has battery life for days.

The only caveat is the you cannot print directly from the Chromebook to a printer; it prints from the cloud and you need to have a printer that can be hooked to the internet.
Summary: By far the most bang for the buck I've gotten on a laptop. Used this for about a year and a half. Still use it every day. Pros: - Super quick boot up. - Lightning fast web browsing, Youtube/Netflix playing, document editing/productivity.
