Review Samsung XE303C12-A01US Chromebook

Notebookcheck
3 March 2014
  • Summary: Chrome is in. Despite its limited scope and continuing overlap with tablets and smartphones, the Chromebook is looking to stay and stand its ground. We take a closer look at the 11.6-inch Samsung Series 3 Chromebook equipped with the same processor as the Nexus 10.

Review: Samsung Chromebook

Wired
30 January 2013
  • Excerpt: In every single way, the Samsung Chromebook — seriously, that’s what they named this thing — is the lesser of the company’s two Chrome OS portables. It’s made with lower-quality materials. It has a smaller display. It has the guts of a tablet rather than the guts of a traditional laptop.
  • Pros: Pricing hits the sweet spot: 0 for the Wi-Fi-only model. Keyboard and trackpad are responsive and comfortable. Great for watching streaming video, video chatting, and working in the cloud. Good battery life. Supports multiple user logins and office Docs editing. Chrome Remote Desktop app allows y...
  • Cons: MacBook Air styling is more of a head-scratcher than a head-turner. Display is low-res and materials are far from top-notch. No keyboard backlight. No Bluetooth device support other than mice and keyboards.

Pocketables
26 December 2012
  • Summary: I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that this could be a primary computer for probably 75% of the population, even though Google tends to market Chromebooks as secondary machines.

A review of Samsung's $249 Chromebook

techreport.com
6 December 2012
  • Summary: I compared Chrome OS to Switzerland earlier. Now, after testing, the Samsung Chromebook makes me think more of a platypus, or maybe some sort of weird-looking pokemon. I also get the sense that it jumped into this world through a portal from an alternate universe—a universe where Steve Jobs never...

  • Conclusion: Hardware-wise, the Series 3 is a solid laptop. However, as with all Chromebooks, the sticking point is the software. With this model, you have the advantage of the low $250 price tag.
  • Pros: Good keyboard and touchpad, Speedy performance, Long battery life, Lightweight, yet solid build
  • Cons: Chrome OS still lacks functionality, Not enough offline apps, Display is dim

Samsung Chromebook review

theverge.com
24 October 2012

  • Cons: Software still stuttery from time to time, Creaky plastic, Odd, inconvenient port placement

  • Pros: Great user interface, Bright, pleasing matte display, Excellent performance (for the price), Long battery life
  • Cons: Chrome OS still lacks functionality, Poor connectivity

Samsung Series 5 Chromebook Review: Taking A Second Look At Chrome OS

PC Perspective
1 June 2012
  • Excerpt: In August of 2011 I reviewed the Acer AC700-1099, one of two Chromebooks available in the North American market. The review was almost entirely negative. The hardware wasn’t great and the operating system was a bit of a mess–capable of only the most basic tasks.
