Summary: Found a great deal on this Chromebook and wanted to give it a try. This is a great computer with plenty of features, good looks, and workable performance. Being a Google/Android/Chrome fan, I had high hopes for Chrome OS. It is certainly acceptable for web browsing, if that's all you want from an operating system. It quickly made me appreciate Windows. Anyway, I can always put Windows on this laptop if I really need more... for now, it's doing just what I need.
Excerpt: Being an older person, I could not understand the handstokes involved in the touch screens, so I REALLY like having a keyboard. I like how light the chrome book is, and easy to move it around the house. I love not having to wait for Microsoft to boot up. However, I did learn that some of the slowness of my laptop was my internet service, not just Microsoft. I use the Chromebook to look up things on the internet from conversations or while watching TV.
Summary: This product's design is so amazing because it doesn't have one of those cooling fans on the bottom of it like those other laptops do. It also has an amazing ultra-slim and light body so it is easier to carry around with you where ever you go.
Excerpt: If you have access to the internet at school, work, or the office, this item saves time. I purchased this chromebook for my child and soon learned to appreciate the quick load verses the notebook slow powerup. This device loads the browser quickly. After locating the Microsoft Word conversion app, it has made editing documents a breeze. The only issue I have is when the internet goes down, so does your ability to work. This item is light weight and easy to carry.
Summary: The one word I would use is multifunctional. Search web. Stream movies. Play games. USB port. Download programs. Tablet falls in love with laptop, gives birth to wonderful multifunctional Chromebook.
Summary: I love our Chromebook. We took it across the United States last year, and then to Alaska on a cruise. We were able to stay in touch with our family while we were gone. It had a problem this year and all we had to do was send it back and have it repaired rapidly. We use the Chromebook every day. Our 5 year granddaughter is able to use the Chromebook without any difficulties. Thank you for this great little machine.
Summary: Not an original review title but it couldn't be more true. Since purchasing a Chromebook I have recommended this product to 4 friends who have also purchased the same Chromebook. This machine does everything that I could hope for (I don't do photo editing, graphic design, etc). For just a few hundred dollars I've found a product that connects me to the internet efficiently, allows me to create documents and do all the tasks needed for my role as a HR Manager.
