Samsung Chromebook Series 5 550 review

Engadget
29 May 2012
  • Summary: After testing not one but two new Chrome devices, it's clear that Google's fledgling OS is more pleasant to use than it was a year ago. What's less obvious, though, is to what extent the new Series 5 Chromebook is actually an improvement, and whether it's priced realistically compared to all those other affordable portable devices on the market. On one hand, the Series 5 550 brings an Ethernet jack, DisplayPort and a much-improved touchpad -- useful additions, all.
  • Pros: Comfortable keyboard, improved trackpad, Display is easily viewable outdoors, Chrome OS has improved since launch
  • Cons: Shorter battery life than last-gen model, Speakers max out at low volume, Expensive given what it can do right now

Getting better all the time, Chrome OS still has long way to go

CNET
1 March 2011
  • Summary: Chrome OS struggles with the delineation between apps and Web sites, even though they are fast growing together. Great for students and casual home use, the day is coming when it'll be competitive, but it's not yet a replacement for a more mature OS.
  • Cons: Chrome OS continues to be hamstrung by familiar limitations: popular cross-platform programs like Skype don't work, Chrome is terrible with large numbers of tabs, and non-Google sites can't be easily integrated as apps.

Google Chrome OS first look

Techworld
13 December 2010
  • Summary: Done right, the Chrome OS could power the typical family computer and the common business computer for use within the comfort of local, reliable Wi-Fi networks. It'll need parental controls and remote wipe capabilities, respectively, though. That would create an interesting new world, with Chromebooks becoming the first commonly used thin client (the netbook reinvented), iPads and future Android tablets staking out the role of the highly personal, use-it-anywhere...

Google Chrome OS

Techworld
25 November 2009
  • Summary: When Google announced Chrome, the company said that it would essentially be a browser turned into an operating system, and a first look at this early version of the beta shows that to be very much the case. At this point, there's very little there apart from the browser itself. While it may be instructive to download and try this first iteration of Google's Chrome OS, we'll have to wait for future versions with a more fully formed feature set to judge the operating...

Getting better all the time, Chrome OS still has long way to go

CNET
12 November 2012
  • Summary: Chrome OS struggles with the delineation between apps and Web sites, even though they are fast growing together. Great for students and casual home use, the day is coming when it'll be competitive, but it's not yet a replacement for a more mature OS.
  • Pros: Chrome OS continues to mature, as regular updates bring rapid improvement to the browser-based operating system. New changes we like include Google Play integration and 100GB of Google Drive storage for free.
  • Cons: Chrome OS continues to be hamstrung by familiar limitations: popular cross-platform programs like Skype don't work, Chrome is terrible with large numbers of tabs, and non-Google sites can't be easily integrated as apps.

Google Chrome OS review

Stuff.tv
11 May 2011
  • Summary: Whether you just take the odd look at Google Maps or run your whole life with its online organisers, chances are you’re familiar with Google’s apps. Chrome OS takes this ubiquity to its logical conclusion, reducing an entire operating system to a browser and a bunch of Google accounts. That simplicity means it can run on very basic hardware, with all the storage and number-crunching handled by Google’s servers.

Chrome OS : le point sur le futur système de Google

Clubic
28 March 2011
  • Conclusion: Le futur système de Google est tellement limité qu'à première vue, on serait tenté de l'enterrer avant même qu'il ait pu commencer à faire ses preuves. Pourtant, ce postulat pourrait bien être la conséquence d'une erreur de jugement qui consiste à comparer Chrome OS avec un système « classique » tel que Windows, Mac OS X ou Linux. Même si la version actuelle de Chrome OS n'est pas vraiment « sexy », il ne faudra pas pour autant tirer de conclusions hâtives.
