Summary: I bought this computer because I had to put my macbook pro in the shop for a fan replacement and I attend a school where we use our computers everyday. I wanted something that I could use temporally and at a decent price. First off this computer doesn't work for my school because two programs that we use for class does not run on chrome. I could have easily gotten a refund after I found this out but I fell in love with this computer the minute I took it out of the box.
Summary: Very nice PC. My wife and I decided to try this out after seeing one our daughter was using. For lightweight Internet browsing and battery longevity its a dream. Very lightweight as well. The presentation quality is very high on both how it looks, and how good the screen is. My wife and I both have alternative machines we do our work on. But for casual browsing on Facebook or the internet, this is a superior PC and much easier to deal with.
Summary: love my 11.6" Samsung Chromebook! it's so fast when I start it up and the battery life is amazing! and it charges very quickly. I purchased the white one and I love the color. Only thing there is no cap locks which is a bit annoying. You have to press alt and the search button at the same time, and then again when you want caps lock off. you also can't open things in new tabs or window. but overall so happy with my purchase.
Pros: Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet, Small, The color
Summary: I'm really loving this, perfect for my daily computer use & constant need to stream youtube, netflix or pandora at all times. However, the screen is very very very dull, to the point it makes me squint a bit to look at it in some vain hope it's my eyes making things so dull -ha! But this could be b/c it's sitting beside my gaming computer which has a ultra HD monitor attached to it.
Summary: Highly functional, super fast and a great addition to our other laptop. We also hook it up to our TV and use it to stream online shows, etc. The light weight makes it easily transportable, we can use our phones as a hotspot so the need for internet isn't a problem, and it allows us to work online from anywhere. As most (80-90%) of what we use our computers for is online this was a great choice for us.
Summary: Chromebooks are all I need for personal use - email and web surfing. This is one of the best I've used. It's lightweight, sturdy and quick. The only issue I'd call out is that the power cord input jack is tiny and doesn't always feel like it's stable in the side of the machine.
Great functionality for web and Google account access

Summary: Great functionality for web and Google account access. I’m disappointed that I cannot install all the same Apps that I am accustom to on my mobile devices. I understand that the web based access to some accounts are full service where the Apps are limited functionality, but also included a streamlined user experience. I want the option to have the streamlined experience on the Chromebook, and will select the web-based access when I need the full functionality.
Summary: This is a wonderful device! I had the Acer Chromebook which was fine, but I really have to say I like the Samsung features better. I have all Samsung devices and I love the APPS. It seems that the keyboard on this is better quality than the Acer - not 'cheap' and plastic. I also like the look of the cover more than the plain plastic white on the Acer. This is FAST and reliable for all of my needs.
