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.

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.
