Samsung Chromebook XE303C12 review: Pure essence

12 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Pure essence. That's the Samsung Chromebook in a nutshell. Chromebooks are made for online use, but they're not netbooks. When they were first introduced a couple years back, they featured a 12-inch display, an Intel Atom processor and 16 GB of internal storage. It looks like a laptop, but the ChromeOS makes it into a different type of product. Today we're taking a closer look at the XE303C12-A01UK.

Samsung Chromebook Series 3 Review

25 March 2013
  • Summary: I understand that there are other options for browsing the internet, on a more powerful hardware for a few dollars more, and can do much more that the Chromebook, but do not underestimate the “it just works” factor. Less is more with the Chromebook. Less (no) troubleshooting, less (no) maintenance, less configuration, one centralized seamless update process, less (no) worries about backups, settings, applications not working for one or another reason.

Expert Review

1 November 2012
  • Conclusion: If Google keeps improving Chrome quickly, and Samsung can keep the cost of its excellent Chromebook hardware down while improving battery life a bit, Chromebooks could represent a very strong alternative for many users versus pricey Windows-based, productivity-focused tablets such as the Microsoft Surface or the Asus VivoTab RT
  • Pros: Extremely low price, 100GB of Google storage for two years included in price, Excellent keyboard, Light and slim
  • Cons: Limited functionality when away from Wi-Fi, Battery life should be better, Screen has viewing-angle issues

Samsung Chromebook Series 3 (XE303C12) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
1 November 2012
  • Summary: While previous Chromebooks were too pricey and limited in functionality, the Samsung Chromebook Series 3 comes closest to capturing Google's original vision. With a cost of $249, this notebook gets people online on the cheap and provides a comfortable keyboard and touchpad. The 1.7-GHz Exynos 5 dual processor and 2GB of RAM can't run some of the games in the Chrome Store, but these components should satisfy many user's needs.

Samsung's Chromebook is designed to be used with an active Internet connection and could be interesting for those of you who already use Google's services

Good Gear Guide.au
23 April 2013
  • Summary: Samsung's Chromebook is a great size for an everyday laptop. However, it makes use of Google's Chrome OS, so it's not like a regular Windows or Mac laptop, and it needs an Internet connection to function properly. It's worth considering if you already make extensive use of Google's services in your everyday work.
  • Pros: Small and light, Price, Useful if you already rely on Google services
  • Cons: Limited in what it can do, Needs an Internet connection for proper use, Touchpad sometimes innacurate

Samsung Chromebook Series 3 review

30 November 2012
  • Conclusion: While the Chromebook concept is better on paper than it is in practice, we still admire the fact that Samsung and Google have made a usable, well-built laptop for less than £230. The astonishing battery life makes it ideal for workers on the go, and its relatively cheap price and walled-garden OS is attractive to parents. But stick to Windows or Mac computers if you want anything more.
  • Pros: 9-hour battery life, 10-second boot-to-log-in awesomeness, Fast, Apple-slick and silent, Google apps that work offline
  • Cons: Shaky media playback, Let-down sound quality, Substandard screen
