Samsung Chromebook Series 5 550 review

29 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Though Chrome OS has come a long way, this particular device has disappointing battery life and feels slightly overpriced given what it can do.

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

23 April 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.
  • 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.

New Chrome OS review

TechRadar UK
2 September 2014
  • Summary: Should you consider Google's cloud-based computers for your business?
  • Pros: It's fast, It's cheap, It's simple and secure, Chrome's learning curve is effectively zero – if you've used a browser, you know how to use Chrome – and it runs very quickly, even on fairly modest hardware. If you're a paid-up fan of cloud-based apps Chrome is a very affordable and elegant way to access them.
  • Cons: It isn't keen on LANs, Patchy app store selection, Not everything works offline, Chrome's simplicity means it can't do many of the things you'd expect small laptops to do, and while Google's own apps are very good you may find that key apps you want to use aren't available for the platform. If you're a long-time laptop user you might find the simplicity more restrictive than refreshing.

Google Chrome OS review

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.

Google Chrome OS erste Bilder auf Dell Mini 9

22 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Nachdem letzte Woche nur-noch über die Große Konkurrenz durch ChromeOS für Microsoft die Rede war, gibt es nun erste Bilder auf einem Dell Mini 9 . Dort seht ihr den Chrome Browser offen und die blaue Startleiste unten. Natürlich ist das erst eine Alpha 1.01 Version und bis zum erscheinen nächstes Jahr wird sich noch vieles ändern, aber ob es bis dahin mit dem neuen Windows 7 mithalten kann ist fraglich.

Expert Review

12 January 2011
  • Excerpt: A Google Chrome OS egyelőre egy béta állapotban lévő, főleg fejlesztőknek szóló bemutató. A vas, amit a Google köré építtetett, alapjában véve rendben van, a lényeg azonban a szoftver. Sokat nem kell várni tőle, de még mielőtt valaki véglegesen leírná, emlékezzen arra (vagy nézzen utána), hogy milyen volt az Android az 1.0 környékén, majd nézze meg, hogy mit mutat most egy Gingerbread.

Análise : Google Chrome [Beta]

25 October 2010
  • Summary: Todos os “pros” e “contras” aqui descritos serão com certeza vistos e revistos pela Google e certamente que num futuro próximo muitos dos problemas que podem ser detectados actualmente serão corrigidos. Ainda assim pensamos que para já não vai substituir os browsers nos computadores domésticos, como Internet Explorer, Opera ou FireFox. O Google Chrome promete mas até lá, e porque ainda está em Beta, vai ter de ser utilizador como browsers secundário...

Video: Google Chrome OS Netbook könnte nur 20$ kosten und erste Demo

25 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Nachdem wir die Pläne von Google gehört haben ihr Betriebssystem komplett auf der Cloud basierend zu haben war für die meisten klar das es nicht so schnell erfolgreich wird. Analysten meinen aber das durch den geringen Hardware Aufwand wodurch man nur wenig RAM, Prozessor Leistung und vor allem nur eine kleine SSD (4 oder 8GB) benötigt es schon zu einem Verkaufspreis von 20$ kommen könnte.
