Summary: Disposable computer with little to no versatility. Spotty java script only allows for ancient apps, no game streaming, poor video quality, Ohhh yeah it and it's display driver WILL burn out in just a few short months. Save your money!!!!
Summary: I bought this to supplement my Toshiba Satellite laptop which I use for Ubuntu and Windows. My Toshiba is big and has great specs but it usually stays on my desk at home. I wanted something more practical to take to and from the office or to work from on the go. We do most of our productivity at my office through Google apps anyway so a Chromebook made sense to me. I've had this machine for about 2 weeks now and I love it so far!
I opened it up and it was fine. So great that it's durable

Summary: My first day with it, I drove off with it on top of my car at 40 mph. It fell off and only had some minor scratches on the corners. I opened it up and it was fine. So great that it's durable. My last laptop broke from dropping only about 3.5 feet. Works great for my school and glad that I don't have to put it in its own case cuz it's ok to be in the same bag as my books.
Summary: Really great Chromebook is built like a tank, just by holding it you can feel the built quality. With proper care, I don't see how this Chromebook won't last me more than 5 years. It comes with VGA, HDMI ports and even a 3.0 USB port, and your sd SHDC cards lots. The battery on this Chromebook is also great. I go all day in school with a single charge, but I guess this would depend on your usage.

Summary: I seem to have accidentally purchased a portable Google. One extra star because it's partly my fault for not doing sufficient research. It's listed as being "great for students", but I can't use Word, Excel, Photoshop, Skype, or a number of other things the normal, average student can't go without. So.. what's the point?
Summary: Originally had purchased the HP 11-2010nr 11.6" in snow white for my daughter but it had a faulty charger. We returned that unit as many others noted the same problems with it holding a charge or not charging so we fell upon this Lenovo and gave it a chance. Soo glad we did. This fits all her needs. As a Mom I appreciate the rugged style of this chromebook. Its definetly more solid in design. Tho not as pretty to look at since the HP was snow white and shiny.
Summary: I liked the computer, but needed to return it, because I could not download some programs since it did not have Window. I reordered a similar computer, but either a windows operating system. I really like the weight of this computer.

Summary: Great computer but I mistakenly didn't realize that it was a " teaching model ", meaning that it was for students whose teachers decided what the computer would be used for. The Chromebook is built like a tank. Very rugged, to tolerate the handling and " mis " handling of the students I suppose. Although I really liked it, because it was a student version, I regretfully returned it and got a Toshiba with an IPS screen.
