Summary: Absolutely amazing, does everything. Runs google drive. Boots up automatically on opening the lid so great for quick usage. Cant say enough good things. No difference to the Apple Mac except the cost.
Summary: I bought this for my partner for his birthday and he is really pleased with it. He uses it mainly for the Internet and you tube and is great! Really fast start up and loading screens, looks really sleek and compact but has a great sized screen and keyboard. Battery charge is phenomenal! Lasts for over a days use and doesn't take long to charge. Never gets hot. Easy to use and navigate.
Summary: My husband is 74 and not really that computer literate so he was a bit nervous of moving to a Chromebook after using Windows for years but he loves it. It fits into his hand luggage when we travel and is nice and light. It is so much faster then we are used to that it tends to get used more now. In fact we are going to get one for our thirteen year old grandson who is filled with envy and reasons why he SO NEEDS one.
Trackpad seemed broken at first, but a Powerwash fixed it

Excerpt: Just got one of these and so far I am quite happy with it, but I did have a issue at first. It booted up as soon as I opened it which was awesome, but the trackpad was all but unusable. I was going to return it, but after a quick Google around I found that sometimes a Powerwash (system reset) fixes it. Thankfully after I did one, it worked fine. It's very light and the sound is pretty good on it.
Summary: I purchased this Toshiba Chromebook after reading a recent Expert Reviews article, in which it received a best buy award. Its a fabulous looking piece of kit for the money. The 13" screen size is definitely the best size to opt for, it's portable but has a large enough screen size for all day to day usage. I'd recommend spending the extra over a smaller screened Chromebook.
