Excerpt: Recently purchased a Asus C200 Chromebook and have been pleased so far. Make sure you understand what chrome operating system is before you think of getting a chromebook as a desktop, windows, or mac replacement as their are limitations with the operating system. However, with apps such as chrome remote desktop, I can easily remote into my home PC if need be. I was looking for a secondary, light and portable, device and I believe I have found just that.
Excerpt: I use this Chromebook for web surfing and writing. It does exactly what I expected: It gives me internet access, has basic word processing apps, is lightweight and has incredible battery life. A great deal if you need something basic and don't want to carry around a 7lb laptop all the time.
Pros: Fast, Good Value, Great battery life, Lightweight
Summary: This is my fault really. I wasn't aware of what a Chromebook was. I just thought it was brand name for a laptop. To those of you who know what a Chromebook is I assume it is good. To those of you who don't know what a Chromebook is let me list the issues I have found with it. There is no offline use as I have found. it is built to be an online only product. That means you can't download things onto it.
Summary: fantastic machine. i paid $250 first week of release. now $200. whaw whaw... trying to print something is a disaster. this machine is only for email and surfing the web. all solid state. basically a tablet with a keyboard.
One of the better Chromebooks, excellent at $199, Screen Actually 11.6"

Summary: Much better screen than average - better colors, brightness, viewing angles. YMMV since Asus supposedly uses two screen vendors. I got lucky. Check this out in a bricks and mortar store and make sure you like the one you receive equally well - whether purchased locally or here. Incredible battery life, much better than my other Chromebooks, including ones with the same processor.
Great keyboard. I'm a writer and move pretty quickly ...

Summary: Great keyboard. I'm a writer and move pretty quickly on a keyboard, and this one is terrific. Really good speakers, great sound quality. Legit battery time of 10 hours. Trade-offs for these ++ features: average screen with very limited angular viewing, and sluggish with more than a couple of open tabs. If planned usage is simply email, shopping, and IM, it's decent value for an under $200 laptop.
Excerpt: I bought this because I wanted something smaller to travel with. Simple to use right out of the box. It is super fast once turned on. I wanted a keyboard that was sturdy,and this one sure is. It is different from Windows, so be sure you know what the chromebook does. Love this for emails and web surfing, which is what is used for when I travel.
I can already say without a doubt that it is the perfect computer for me

Summary: I am still learning all the features of my chrome book, I can already say without a doubt that it is the perfect computer for me. I use it everyday and my laptop now seems like a dinosaur. I run my business straight from the Apps and google docs. I could not be more pleased. While some of the Apps are not quit what I was looking for I just delete them and look for something more suitable which I can do easily as there are a ton of Apps available.
Great computer, Chromebooks are the best thing since sliced bread...

Summary: Works great... gotta love Chrome OS - I'll never switch to another OS again, and am switching my entire ~100 person business to Chromebooks... No longer is there a need at my company for a server or network... we are even getting rid of our phone system and instead are using mobile phones too. No reason for an office environment to be wired any more!
