Excerpt: Happy with this, my first Chromebook after a long string of laptops. Boots up quickly, casts to the chromecast quickly and has a long battery life. Glad I chose a Chromebook as it looks to be serving my needs just fine!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, Powerful, Works Well With Chromecas
Summary: I bought a Toshiba Chromebook 2 and after 1 day I'm ready to throw it in the trash. Walking into buying a Chromebook seemed like a good idea, ITS NOT. I cant get Microsoft Office (word, powerpoint, excel, or any of that). On the CHromebook's all you can do is surf the web and get apps (the apps arent the best either).
Summary: The RMA process had a hiccup, but Newegg came through and resolved technical issue after talking with them on the phone in no time. I am disappointed in Toshiba. Their QC on their refurbished items is apparently lacking as well as their manufacturer's warranty program.
Pros: --Good price --The features were just what we needed --Newegg did a good job with shipping and RMA --2nd chromebook worked fairly well...
Cons: ...until it didn't in less than 2 months. -- Trackpad failed. -- Everything else seems to be working, for now.
Summary: I bought this through JL as slightly cheaper there and a 2 year guarantee is included . First impressions are very good. The case is not as robust as my wife's Macbook Air and the track pad maybe not as good , but it is a third of the price . Software suits me fine , if I need more sophisticated software I use my desktop Windows 7 PC . Screen is superb and sound quality good. Took a while to learn how to adjust the font size/ resolution for my aging eyes but great now.

Summary: A really nice laptop that is extremely quick and is fabulous for browsing and using the Cloud. It seems well made and is light and easy to use. Unfortunately there is one big downside. If you need to use a "regular" program, such as Quicken or Microsoft Expression, or any program that needs to be installed to the hard drive, YOU CAN'T.
