Review Samsung 550C22-H01US Chromebook

Notebookcheck
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 and effortless. Without any of the bloatware or distractions, heavy notetaking and moderate office work are ideal tasks for the Chromebook. The matte display, long battery life,...
  • Cons: Limited in flexibility and scope, Essentially useless without an available Internet connection, Not easily end-user upgradeable, no USB 3.0/HDMI/eSATA/sleep-and-charge, Fragile AC connector, A backlit keyboard would go a long way in adding additional value to the Chromebook and the weak AC plug feels cheap and more fit for a budget cell phone. For $500, most users will have a hard time justifying the value of a Chromebook over a typical Windows-based notebook.
