Please Look

  • 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.

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.

Fan went out, freezes, Verizon a pain to configure, not a Mac experience by far

CharlesBabbage, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: After first plugin it in, fan starting making a clicking noise. Thought it would eventually work itself out and go away. I think it did, by malfunctioning. This is not a product you can give your older parents as I did. Complicated interface that is hard to navigate people through over the phone. Verizon data plan is almost a gimmick it eats 100 MB fast, and is a pain to configure. I would not buy another Chromebook for awhile.

Don`t worth it

Carlos Eduardo, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought this computer thinking that I could do the most things I used to do on anyother computer with chrome and internet, But it`s not true, chromeOS can`t do many things that any other OS can do, like runing videos and moveis, listen music or even text editing. Like a early adopter user, would be nice if it was cheaper than it is, US$ 500 on a computer that can not be used like "real computer'' is not a good deal.

Samsung Chromebook

Antoinette F. Ledger, Amazon
1 October 2012
  • Summary: I am a professor and thought the chrome book would be excellent for my purposes. However, the operating system is incapable of reaching a website I must have in order to communicate with my students and post documents. If its purpose is primarily for online use, the operating system must expand its capability.

Chrome Os is alright but, but its just a web browser.

thuffman152, CNET
28 September 2012
  • Summary: Why buy a chromebook when you can buy a $300 Compaq and download google chrome and still have more fetures than any chromebook? I don't care Chrome OS is evolving its still just a web browser. I don't care that it can now awesomely edit simple text documents, I can already do that. And If you want a fast OS that has way more features than Chrome OS then download and install Kubuntu. On Kubuntu my laptop boots up instantly.
  • Pros: 1.Nice Laptop, but you don't need a great computer to run Chrome OS.
  • Cons: 1.Way too expensive. $550 I'm not paying that for a web browser with a few offline features. , 2.Only has flash.
