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.
Bad device, terrible customer service from Samsung
7 October 2012
Summary: I only bought this to use Chrome and access Gmail and Google Drive. For that, it has worked very well. However: it won't print through Google Cloud Print, even though the printer in question works perfectly through Google Cloud Print from other devices. I spent hours on the phone with Google Ninjas about this, and they finally said they didn't know why it wouldn't work, but I'd just have to print from somewhere else. I've only had the Chromebook for just over 2 months.
Summary: I purchased this chromebook at BestBuy and cannot be more disappointed in it as a purchase. The following is my reasons against a purchase: The price is outrageous considering anyone could buy a better equipped laptop for half the price. !!The bad battery life it says six to seven hours which is not really good in the first place considering it doesn't have to do any heavy lifting as a real computer. But in real life use the battery life is a lie, I get two hours tops!
Summary: I bought it specifically to do stock market dealing whilst I am abroad, and it doesn't display real time graphs! Maybe I can get something done to make it do this, but it's not easy! I've been on to Samsung and they couldn't fix it! I will probably just use a normal lap top though as I don't really like the operating system either! It looked so good on the adverts.
