Chromebook with Chrome OS

Audio Technician, Amazon
23 November 2012
  • Summary: These laptops are quick. Mine can start up and get to the desktop in 3 seconds. It is fast and has a bit of customization that can be done. It is an AT HOME use laptop though. This is not the best for work environments as some features that you'd like to use, do not work. It's best used for Facebook, Document processing (In Google Drive), and checking emails. It does not support JAVA at the time (Which means no Minecraft for gamers) and does not support JAVA webpages.

Great for web app addicts

  • Summary: If you're still hesitating about buying a Chromebook, let me tell you this: 1. It's not for everyone. If you don't already know how to use web apps to make your life easier, don't buy it. 2. You won't be paying $450 for "a browser". You will be paying $450 for simplicity and a worry-free experience. 3. Build your web-app working environment in your Chrome browser before you buy this.

Great Product

  • Summary: Recently purchased this item. My company has converted over to google docs for business. Most of the employees are creating google documents due to the workgroup features on these types of documents. So I'd recently become a big enough supporter of google docs to want and give the chromebook a shot. I purchased the 3G Samsung 5 550 and it's a pretty good machine.

If you are an anti-apple/windows, this is the unit to get.

  • Summary: I love the Samsung Chromebook Series 5 XE550C22. It opens immediately, runs my google stuff, is custom set for my work/play, and is more portable than my PC laptop. The printing is okay once set up, but another PC or compatible must be set up to the wireless/wired printer before you can print.

Great as an extra computer

Joe T., Amazon
29 September 2012
  • Summary: This product is perfect for someone that already has all the computers, tablets, and phones that they "need". That's me. I have more devices than I know what to do with. I got this about a month ago. I held off reviewing it so that I could see how it fit into my daily life. Since its arrival it has been my most used gadget. I choose to use it at home more than I use my macbook airs, or my iPad 2, or my Galaxy Note 10.1. This is not a gaming computer. At least not for me.

Great product!

  • Summary: I did a lot of research before i purchased my Chromebook. I mostly am on the computer for email, facebook, banking/paying bills, and browsing/researching things on the internet, etc. If this is you, I think the Chromebook is an excellent choice. Especially if you already have a google/gmail account. And if you have already been using google chrome browser, you will be a pro. Pros: Very fast start up! Chrome browser works very quickly. Everything loads very fast.

Excellent Product

Michael Smith "Michael Smith", Amazon

  • Summary: I love my Chromebook! The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it's just a little to pricey. I wish Samsung would drop the price of the 3g and WiFi only models by $100 - that would be the sweet spot. As a matter of fact the Chromebook (3G) with all the accessories cost almost as much as our Dell Inspiron R15 notebook that is fully loaded (less high end video).

Game changer

  • Summary: I'm a pretty tech savy guy who enjoys trying out the latest and greatest products from the world's leading tech companies. I have more than my fair share of Apple, Samsung, Google, and Microsoft products. Because of this it takes a lot to impress me. Well, I think Google is on to something here.

It works!

Ben Chow, Amazon
5 August 2012
  • Summary: It works as intended and is blazingly fast in boot up and shutdown. I found myself reduced in usage for my iPad and iMac at home. The one star deducted is for the awaiting improvement for the printing solution of the device. Although google has cloud print, it seems it cannot cover all files in all use case, but I am sure it will become better in the future, given the fast chrome version iteration.
