Summary: First, you need to understand the ChromeOS and what it's all about. I won't cover that here except to say it's pretty nifty if you know what you want and that happens to be a secure environment for working online in "the cloud" (but still like to have the capability of occasional local music,...
Summary: I use this computer everyday - it's basically replaced my tablet. It also works well for documents and other productivity - much easier to write on and edit than a tablet. I like matte screens, so this is fine, and the keyboard is great.
Summary: I spent less than five minutes in the ChromeOS, which were as many minutes as I needed to take the steps necessary to install the modification of Ubuntu, Chrubuntu, on it. ChromeOS seems well and good, and I would probably be able to spend my holidays and family reunions doing something other than...
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.
Summary: First and foremost it needs to be noted that this is not a laptop. People who want to store their documents, music or video library on the machine, or run any non-web application including Skype, MS Office, LibreOffice, games, etc... will be disappointed.
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.
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.
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.
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.
