A Waste

NowAChromebookHater, Samsung
10 July 2014
  • Summary: In hindsight, I wonder why I never immediately returned this next to useless product I received as a gift within the first 30 days. If you're looking to connect via the 3G cellular modem, good luck in: 1) finding a signal and keeping it up if you move the Chrome book 6" away from where you last by some miracle connected, and 2) Trying to manually force this unit to look for a 3G signal and connect.
  • Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Realistic color, Lightweight
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations

  • Pros: Inexpensive, Realistic color, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations

  • Summary: Keyboard doesn't work. Internet navigation doesn't work even connected in the same place where other people are using internet without any problem. I spent 5 hours trying just the minimum and nothing was possible. Just bought two days ago and right now I'm sending back to the store to get my money back.

Not worth the money

Newdad12345, Samsung
26 May 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this until we were able to buy a Mac. We were told when we bought it that it could easily handle all of the things we normally did on our old laptop by the best buy salesperson. Turns out that the chromebook could not handle word, netflix or spotify, which are the only things we wanted it to do. Within the first year the screen ended up breaking, and the mousepad stopped working. We will never make the mistake of buying this product or another chromebook again.
  • Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, bad value

Not Good For a Student

Megan1985, Samsung
19 May 2014
  • Summary: I'm a graduate student and I needed a computer to email, listen to music, peruse the web, and type papers. However, the operating system does not allow for useful programs for students, like Microsoft Office, to be installed. Therefore, I could not complete my homework in a timely fashion and to the extent that my professors expected of me.
  • Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Lightweight
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, does not run a compatible operating system

Not what I expected

  • Excerpt: Bought this as a backup to my laptop to take camping with us and check news, E mails, etc. It would not connect to my home router, a G series. Was told I would have to have, and buy, an N series router to get connected. It recognized my router , but would not connect! Took it back to store.
  • Pros: Bright, Professional Weight, Sharp Tones & Colors

Great little machine

  • Summary: For the price this is the best computer for traveling considering all you want to do is surf the internet and watch movies. I usually throw a bunch of movies on a thumb drive for the plane ride. Recently I had to buy another Chromebook because mine crashed, I just sent it in to be serviced so we will see how Samsung's warranty works out.
  • Pros: Built-in speakers, Inexpensive, Durable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not high def
