14 September 2012
  • Summary: Reliable office worker. Chrome OS is still young with a very limited scope, but it already excels in everything it has been designed to do. Is this second-generation Chromebook from Samsung worth a look to on-the-go business and office users?
  • Pros: Bright matte display, Large touchpad, Long battery life, Secure and reliable, Almost instantaneous performance, Easy to use and learn, Strong wireless capabilities, Almost noiseless, DisplayPort and USIM options, The Chromebook has a narrow and limited focus, but everything feels instantaneous an...

Samsung Series 5 Chromebook 550 review: Is less more?

14 June 2012
