chrome

Epic_Droid, Amazon

  • Summary: I had this Chromebook before it was ChromeOS started taking off. The operating system is fine, I loved my laptop great little thing, but it was lacking some power. Loading large SDcards with photos seemed to take a while, I tried numerous sd cards and brands thinking maybe I just had a bad card. All and all it is a great web surfer and streamer.

I want to provide my review on SAMSUNG 5 Series

AH, Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: I have a Samsung 5 Series, CORE i7 which I bought less than a year ago. I can say, this laptop is the worst laptop I've ever had. Within three months, the fan started to scream loudly, the laptop is very slow even with its "high Speed Processor and RAM". I had before an old Toshiba laptop which I bought 6 years ago, and its much faster than this Samsung new laptop.

Half the price of an iPad and twice as powerful.

Clayton A. Cohn, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • Summary: People like their iPads, and I do get the Apple addiction. But the iPad, which is incredibly expensive, still won't play flash or really do a whole lot considering Apple is incessant about keeping their platform closed. The chromebook, however, is powered by Google Android, an open source platform, which makes the possibilities for usage much more boundless. Furthermore, it has an actual keyboard which is SUCH a relief from having to type on the iPad screen.

A robust and powerful machine at a decent price

Michael Dennis, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: One of the best products I have purchased. I love this Chromebook. I truly feel that once people understand that a Chromebook is fundamentally different than a traditional PC, they will embrace the concept. A Chromebook is not a PC, it operates off of Chrome OS, a cloud based operating system, and that's a good thing.

Wife prefers this over Windows 8

DeDub, Amazon
18 November 2013
  • Summary: I won't comment much on the Chrome OS; either you'll love it or hate it. Just one note, if you take the time to learn, or re-learn I should say, how to do everything in Chrome, it can be a very powerful computer. My 5-star review is for the Samsung hardware, which is excellent. The build quality is tops. The trackpad works better than more expensive PCs and the keyboard is tops.

Please Look

TroyP, Amazon

  • Summary: These chromebooks are not made to satisfy customers by Google. They are made as beta computers or just inspirations to future laptops. Google has confirmed this boldly, saying that these are just tests, not made for convenient uses.

great device!

Cinda Reid, Amazon
14 July 2013
  • Summary: Have had it more than a year, no problems anytime or anywhere! With the Verizon connectivity has out performed the Ipad users when wi-fi not available. It's all determined for what you want it for, but for the portability, connection and ease of use it suits my needs and more. Very happy!

Back It Went

E. Hollowell, Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: Can't run Googleearth. 3G was troublesome. Netflix, Youtube, etc. displayed only partial screen. The "fullscreen" display had a large border surrounding the actual video so it wasn't really fullscreen. ALL video files need to be uploaded to Google first before they send back the video stream. Documents need to upload to Google to get opened on the Chromebook. After 3 days I ask 'WHY am I doing this to myself?' and then sent it back.
