Summary: Let me start off by saying i was a little skeptical because of the chrome OS and not being able to use Microsoft office. This is a great update from the last Chromebook. I like the fact it was super light weight and such a fast sleek interface starts up and shuts down fast.
Summary: I open it, it's on. I close it, it sleeps. It runs apps, which do just about everything these days. I travel with it and use it with a trackball(mouse), which is all it requires for my needs. It is extremely light.
Summary: It's very smooth, cute, and light. The top is leather didn't expec that bonus and the keyboard is smooth and easy to type on. It moves a little slow and I expected because of the details I read before I bought it.
Summary: Then again...screens of the same quality can be found on windows laptops ranging from 400 to 1,000 USD. Bottom line is that while this machine has real limits, what you DO get is totally usable for basically everything most people need.
Pros: Light, durable, silent, cheap, good keyboard, good trackpad. SD card slot and HDMI out along with USB and Headset jack. Battery life is fair to good.
Cons: Performance is not good. Passable if you are patient, but if you have to have lots of tabs open and/or watch streaming video > 720p, this machine will chug. The display is not very bright (max is around 250 nits), and the viewing angles are poor. Battery standby time could be better.
Summary: I've just received it and I am in love with the way it looks! The classic white is so beautiful! today is the second day using it and it works perfectly fine. I have not seen any differences from my previous grey samsung chromebook just yet.
Excerpt: I've used a Chromebook before and liked it - that is until I tried this one (Samsung Chromebook 2). This little thing is a beast compared to all others! I love it! Works flawlessly - SMOOTH! So smooth, it hard to believe I'm even working with a Chromebook.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Good Battery Life, Lightweight, Reliable Performance
It has been very easy for me to get up and running which I ...

Summary: This is the first laptop device I have ever used or purchased. I have only used it for checking my email account and for playing the games that come with Google Chrome so far and have had no problems.
Summary: I really liked the look and feel of the Chromebook. I have an Android phone, so I was hoping I'd know how to use the Chromebook. It wasn't too difficult to figure out, but I just didn't like how different this is from Windows tablets.
EXCELLENT! I usually don't leave reviews but this Chromebook is exceptional!

Summary: I have to say like many others here I was quite skeptical about purchasing a computer that is mostly meant to be connected to the internet and lacks Windows, MAC OS, etc however when I first started using the Samsung Chromebook 2 my world changed.
