Summary: Starts up really fast, about 30 seconds. Battery last long, over 8 hours. Was looking for something to search the internet, watch videos, and wanted a keyboard. I would have given it 5 stars, but processor is a bit slow if playing some online games.
Summary: This laptop was a good purchase when it went one sale sub $200, but it cannot replace a regular business machine or student laptop. The Google Apps suite has a lot of growing up to do before it is anywhere close to professional, so one is limited to use this as an after hours utility.
Excerpt: This is my second chromebook. The first was an Acer that my son now has. I am still acclimating myself to the non-windows platform. I did not realize how different the keyboard is and am still learning the numerous keystroke shortcuts for things you might take for granted like delete.
Summary: Pros: It is so light, it can take drops too. Nice big screen for a netbook, Chrome OS is good if put in developer mode has a full bash terminal. Like I said the best netbook I've owned, although the last one I owned was an Acer Aspire One.
Pros: So light and is powerful enough to do most day to day things.
Cons: Good luck playing any games, Chrome OS isn't really all that great on its own for power users.
Summary: I would buy it again but hopefully will be more lucky next time.
Pros: Light weight Stylish Fast

It stayed at 1% no matter how long I tried to charge it for. The charging light kept blinking green/amber constantly. I tried all the tips a...
Summary: When I was looking for a new laptop, I ran across the Chromebook. I was so worried about buying it, but I am well pleased with my purchase. It is fast and I like the way that I can customize my screens and browser window. It is the perfect size for me to carry in my work bag and it is very light.
