Samsung Series 5 Chromebook Review

Digitaltrends
30 March 2012
  • Excerpt: You watch all your TV through Netflix. Check your email through the Web. Pump out those pesky TPS reports in Google Docs. So why do you need anything but a browser, again? Google says you don’t.

Review: Samsung Series 5 Chromebook

Wired
14 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Let’s get one thing straight: The Chromebook is not really about the hardware. Samsung’s Series 5 notebook is the mere physical vehicle for Google’s cloud-based vision of the future.
  • Pros: Ideal for dedicated Google apps users. Battery affords 7.5 hours of surfing time, even with the bright 12.1-inch screen at full bore. Built-in developer mode lets you tinker with the bare-bones Linux guts underneath.
  • Cons: Too many open tabs test the Chromebook’s resources. Only 100 MB of free monthly 3G service most likely means signing up for a new data plan. 0 leans towards the high end for a web-only notebook. Selection of web apps in Chrome web store leaves a lot to be desired.

Samsung Series 5 550 Chromebook

Pocket Lint
22 June 2012
  • Conclusion: There's not much wrong with the Chromebook hardware. It's actually a pretty decent machine, it has better connectivity than most Ultrabooks and is certainly a lot cheaper. That said, it's not as powerful as a normal laptop - many costing little more than the £380 of this machine - and it is still...
  • Pros: Simple enough for anyone to use, stable, secure, some good web apps are available, Google's services are very well integrated and useful
  • Cons: Not that fast, horribly over-priced, too limited for most users, to heavy, limited file support

Samsung Chromebook Série 5

CNET
23 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Le Samsung Chromebook Série 5 est le premier portable doté de l'OS Chrome. Misant sur le Cloud, un accès immédiat au Web et une bonne autonomie, le duo Samsung et Google Chrome ont de nombreux arguments pour séduire. Suffisant pour s’imposer sur le segment surchargé du netbook ?
  • Pros: un petit netbook attractif avec une batterie longue durée, un véritable accès web instantané et assez de ressource pour naviguer sur la Toile.
  • Cons: Le Série 5 est cher vu ses fonctionnalités et ses capacités et son usage peut se révéler frustrant selon la puissance du signal sans fil.Malgré une configuration matérielle solide, une autonomie excellente et un démarrage rapide nous ne pouvons pas recommander le Samsung Chromebook Série 5 tant q...
