Excerpt: I bought it for my son who is 14 for his short papers. I gues I didn't research it before I bought this computer. It is more like tablet than computer. First of all, when I try to figure out how to print from google doc, it was impossible to figure out. I had to call in to Chrome. once I got hold of the person, she walked me through step by step. It was easy with her help.
Excerpt: I recently purchased the Samsung Chromebook for school. I find that the speed was more than I expected. I can watch TV and movies. I can listen to music while I'm doing my homework. The music is clear and sounds great. The light weight portability helps me bring my chromebook to the different classes, without being weighed down. I like the word and excel application. The apps are easy to download and use. Its a great price for a portable laptop.
Excerpt: I bought this so I could do projects on dhutterfly and the kids can use the textbook websites. It works good for that. I still haven't figured out how to save stuff on the memory card that I put into the memory card slot, but I will eventually.
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.
