Samsung Chromebook Series 5

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: With the Samsung Chromebook Series 5, the company's first Chromebook, you're paying more for a netbook that runs an unpolished OS than one that has Windows 7.
  • Pros: Lightning fast boot times. Losing files to a hard drive crash isn't a concern. Big, bright 12-inch screen. Excellent battery life. Improved HD video playback. Samsung throws in a 4GB SD card.
  • Cons: More expensive than Windows-based netbooks. Media player is very primitive. Clickpad is a bit wonky. No Ethernet or Bluetooth. VGA requires a dongle attachment. File management is hard to grasp. Web Store doesn't have enough apps to make the Chrome OS experience compelling.

19 July 2011
  • Conclusion: We hebben de conclusie eigenlijk al grotendeels laten doorschemeren op de vorige pagina. Wij zijn voor heel veel initiatieven die Google voortbrengt, het zorgt vaak voor veel innovatie binnen de betreffende markt, maar van Chrome OS kunnen we helaas niet enthousiast worden.
  • Pros: Start snel op;, Batterijduur;, Toetsenbord.
  • Cons: Chrome OS;, Printen;, Bestandsbeheer;, Te kaal besturingssysteem;, Te weinig mogelijkheden;, Veel te duur.
