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
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.
Excerpt: So I have been having lots of unusual crashes and even had the chromebook say that the network was unavailable (at that same moment my wife was surfing the net on her iPad and did not have any problems; my son streaming Netflix also did not experience any problems) So I had to restart the machine. After some research I found that the chrome book does not like N wireless, it only works with G wireless at reduced speeds too!
Excerpt: was the worst laptop I have ever purchased, stopped working after 7 days. it forces you to use Google Chrome for internet, if you dont sign up for an account you have to sign in as a guest when using the internet. buy something else.
Cons: Have To Use Google, Limited Uses, Slow To Boot Up, Stopped Working
Excerpt: Now I know what CLOUD means...this light-weight computer is basically a shell. Everything is saved in ether-space... I want control over my writing, powerpoint, spreadsheet as to where they are saved...
Cons: Obviously Cloud Denotes, Something Which I Didn't, Understand
