Excerpt: Great little computer, lightweight and so much easier to use than a tablet. You do have to get used to the touch pad and the keyboard short cuts but that is the only drawback. I thought I'd have issues with Google Docs - but so far no issues. I have not tried updating a Google doc, just opening email attachments.
Summary: I needed to get a new laptop for work. While waiting for a salesperson to help me I noticed the Samsung Chromebook. The price is what first attracted me and the design. The screen is a bit small, but I love how light it is. I didn't really understand the whole concept when I first saw it and I thought I had made a mistake after I purchased it and started using it at work. But I quickly caught on and I love that I can easily retrieve documents from my phone and tablet.
Pros: Inexpensive, Lightweight
Cons: accessing printers can be difficult., small screen
Summary: I bought this Chromebook to see if I could function with nothing but a Chromebook. After a couple of months of use, I was easily able to live without my Windows laptop easily for my personal life. My work life required some Windows specific applications, however those things are about to not be in issue as we move most of our operations to the cloud.
Summary: This is the best of the chrome books that i looked at. hps had no hdmi port and other than it not always being compatible with some things due to the operating system (chrome )it works perfect
Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Lightweight, hdmi port, web camera
Excerpt: This Chromebook was purchased by my 12 yo daughter with her birthday money. She has access to one identical to it at her school and wanted one for home too. She LOVES it. She surfs the web, works on school projects, emails her friends and finds cute pictures of puppies and kitties for her desktop background image. Now, had this been for me, it would not get such great reviews. It can not be used like a regular lap top and the functionality is limited.
Excerpt: Beginning to use the Chrome Book was extremely easy and intuitive. The normal interface to the machine is the Chrome browser which is very capable. Of course all the Google Aps are enhanced on a machine that is a Google Native. The Aps are native to what replaces the Start Toolbar. In addition all the usual web products are available except a ton of mal ware.
Pros: Good Value, Google Aps Access, Great Cloud Access, Handy Size, Long battery life, Wifi Native
