Summary: Does it have a webcam? It looks like does in the pictures, and there is reference to web cam chatting but it doesn't say anywhere specifically that it has a web cam and what type of web cam. Does anyone know the answer to this?
Summary: Well right out of the box the chromebook started right away however the owners manual is terrible. No instructions on the operation at all which made it very difficult to know where to find different settings etc. But, being an android and having Chrome on downloaded on my PC I was able to survive after a few hours. YouTube is very helpful. Great price and size startup and shutdown is extremely quick.
Summary: The laptop is decent for the asking price. My only downfall is it's nothing like a regular laptop. You need an Google account to really work with the laptop. Without it you can still browse the web. It was not a good purchase for me since I was using it for school. Therefore I returned it and found a GREAT 11.6" HP laptop for the same PRICE!!!
Summary: I LOVED THIS LITTLE PUTER. IT WAS JUST WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR...THEN AFTER 2 WEEKS THE SCREEN WENT OUT. I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED. I WILL TRY A DIFFERENT KIND NEXT TIME.. I DON'T NEED ANYTHING FANCY..
Summary: A good option over a Android tablet if you really need a real keyboard. Otherwise its a netbook with a browser with smartphone like hardware. Nothing really impressive but its a $250 computer. Apps are hit and miss and your married to Google's ecosystem. Mine has been stable enough but the page loading speed is nothing to brag about. Yes, it boots quickly but that's to me is much less important then its performance using it which is on par with a netbook running XP.
Summary: Screen works fine. Blue pixel stuck on start up but goes away one it boots into OS. The 4 holes on the metal bracket are a little too high for the screws. I had to use a dremel to alter it so it would fit.
Summary: This is a great product to use for surfing the internet, social networks, checking email, etc. However, if you need to use it for word documents, taking notes, or powerpoint presentations - anything to do with saving information - pictures, files, etc. - do not purchase a chromebook. Also, if it is not connected to internet, it is pretty much useless.
Certainly not as good as it's made out to be, manly let down by the apps.

Summary: The lack of compatibility with android applications at the time of writing this review is a major minus against the chromebook, if you believe all that you read this is going to be addressed in the future. The second most annoying aspect are the chrome apps that are marked as usable offline in my experience only one in ten of the apps marked as usable offline actually work offline! Isn't anybody checking whether they actually do!!!! Really really really annoying.
Summary: From reading these reviews, I took a 50:50 chance and purchased this product. I was very excited. I required this laptop for schoolwork, coursework and even GCSE work in the near future. However, not having Microsoft the programs provided were very limited as was what you could do within them. It was hard to insert pictures from the internet (vital when doing coursework) and hard to see a clear structure of the document you were actually making.
