The New Samsung Chromebook
For Everyone. The Samsung Chromebook is a new computer that helps you get everyday things done faster and easier. It starts in seconds, has virus protection built-in, and runs your favorite Google apps plus thousands more. The Chromebook comes with leading Google products, like Search, Gmail, YouTube and Hangouts, so you can work, play, and do whatever you want, right out of the box.
You can easily share it with multiple people – switching accounts takes seconds, and everyone gets their own files, apps and settings. And it's simple to use. There's no setup and your files are automatically backed up in the cloud. At just 2.5lbs, 0.8in. thick, and with up to seven hours of battery life, the Samsung Chromebook can go anywhere you go. It's built to stay cool, so it doesn't need a fan and runs silently. It also includes 100GB of free Google Drive storage (for two years), a built-in webcam, and dual band Wi-Fi to make it easy to connect to wireless networks.
Introducing the New Chromebook
Chromebooks are easy to use, and don't slow down over time. They have built-in security, so you're protected against viruses and malware. They come with apps for all your everyday needs, and keep your files safely backed up on the cloud. And with free, automatic updates, your Chromebook keeps getting better and better.
Portable, Powerful, Cooler
The Samsung Chromebook's dual core processor delivers exceptional performance and battery life in an ultra-slim package. And unlike traditional computers, it has no fan or moving parts, which means it stays cooler on your lap and runs silent (no humming, unless you're listening to music).
Stay Connected In-Flight
With your Chromebook, you can get online at 10,000ft with free Gogo in-air internet passes. Your Chromebook comes with 12 free passes (estimated $150 value) that you can use over two years on domestic US flights.
Collaborate on Documents
Create documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and drawings with apps like Google Docs, Zoho and SlideRocket. With productivity apps, you can collaborate in real-time with others, access your documents from any computer, and have your files backed up automatically. Access other everyday files using the built-in PDF and document viewer.
More Storage in the Cloud
With 100GB of free Google Drive storage for two years, you can keep your apps, documents, favorites and settings safe and securely accessible from anywhere. You don't have to bother downloading and installing any applications onto your hard drive.
Oversized, Multi-Touch Touchpad
You can enjoy better control using a large multi-touch touchpad. With a glass coating and image sensor it provides a stylish and convenient way to use your Chromebook.
Full-Sized Keyboard Designed for Chrome
The keyboard is optimized for Chrome with a dedicated search key, a row of web-enabled keys, and a comfortable, full-size layout that doesn't cramp your fingers.
Simply More Flexibility
The Chromebook has a range of ports, including HDMI and USB 3.0/2.0 ports, to enable greater flexibility for sharing data and multimedia playback. Its unique hinge design makes it easier to connect all of your peripherals.
Chromebooks automatically update themselves: all of your apps stay up-to-date, and you get the latest version of the operating system without having to think about it.
Get Started Without the Setup
Chromebooks require almost no setup, so you can go from unboxing to doing in minutes. Unlike other computers, you don't need to spend hours installing patches and software.
Not worth the money
Pros: Webpages work
Cons: Keyboard sticks; keys don't work sometimes
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't get this again if I knew what I know now.

Screen Cracked on its own
Pros: Great machine when it was useable; perfect for online browsing, playing games, facebook. Daughter loved it for typing up her homework & doing her research for her homework.
Cons: Screen cracked on its own; called Customer service at Samsung & was accused of breaking screen. Did a search online & found this has happened to others.
Other Thoughts: Bought this for my daughter for her Birthday; some gift huh breaks after a few months & no help for a problem that obviously exists. Daughter was using her Chromebook; closed it up & set it on the desk so we could go out to dinner; Came back & found the screen cracked. How can this happen? Heat issue? Stress Crack? I buy lots of Samsung products; from monitors, to DVD drives, phones, TV's, etc. This is the First time Samsung has ever disappointed me. Very upset about Customer Service in this Case.

Good for web-browsing if you don't need Windows specific apps
Pros: A Chromebook runs the Chrome web browser sitting on top of a Linux core. If the bulk of your computing takes place in a web browser, you will find the Chromebooks meet your needs.
Cons: If you need to run specific Windows-based software, this is probably not the computer for you.
Other Thoughts: I think it is the ideal device for someone who would be okay with a tablet, but wants a full-size real keyboard rather than touch screen.

Pros: It's lightweight
Cons: It will not charge. I plugged it in and it held at a solid 24% battery life. Would not go up. I tried all of the tech support suggestions. My last option is to send it back and have Samsung take a look at it.

Suits its intended purpose
Pros: It's small, lightweight, and has very good battery life. This is a great little machine for light use. It boots in seconds, and, since it's running on a SSD, it's just fast in general. Chrome OS is an ingenious idea, and it functions exactly as expected. The remote desktop function is a big plus.
Cons: I think the operating system could use a little refining to make it easier to get used to, but some things can be remedied with apps.
Other Thoughts: Just remember that this device is meant for low-stress tasks, and you'll be alright. It's only running 2 GB of RAM, and you've got 16 GB of internal storage to work with. It did come bundled with 2 free years of Google Drive, which is 100 GB of cloud storage, so there's that.

ehh... nice try google
Pros: fairly lightweight, high resolution, quite snappy.
Cons: weird shape, screen has some glare. now for the big problems... first the hardware. relatively, it has no internal storage. 16 gigs without the os, which is about 9.5 gigs. the storage is cloud based and files are hard to access when offline. the processor is somewhat weak, a dual core samsung clocking in at 1.7 ghz. now, the os is its real downfall. it does not have any pre installed programs of use, and does not support many standard file types such as wmv movies. its main functionality lies within googles services, which are by no means bad, and actually account for one of the eggs i gave.
Other Thoughts: if you wok with lots of data or need horsepower, this is not the computer for you. however if all you do is use it for youtube, gmail, google movies, music, books ect, then it is basically a tablet tier laptop and a good buy. we got these for school since it revolves around computers. i personally think these would have more functionality running on android since chrome os is just not adequate to be a full fledged computer.

Understand its limitations before buying. Great machine
Pros: I use this for remote desktop so that I can use my computer anywhere. It has met every expectation. Just don't try to do gaming, since I was getting about 4fps!
Cons: A lot of the games available on the Google Play store are not compatible with the ChromeOS. As I said in the title, realize the limitations before purchase!
Other Thoughts: As a web browser and remote desktop it works excellent. Very small and light. A big dog urinated on it and it still works. Yeah, I know, super gross right? I was at PAX and staying at someone's apartment in downtown Seattle for the 4 day weekend and an overexcited puppy managed to dump a metaphorical bucket of urine on it. I should mention it is a big dog. Just wanted to share that story. Dang thing still works too, just needed a heavy dose of sanitizer. The dog is doing fine too.

Like it more and more every day
Pros: Boots with a browser and I'm online with wifi in 10 seconds and with no hassles. Battery lasts 6 hours so I can use it a long time with no cords. I own 3 other laptops and end up using the Samsung Chromebook most of the time. It's very convenient. Doesn't get hot. In fact, it barely gets warm after 20 minutes of use. Works great for a quick email check or stock quote check. The screen is bigger than most tablets and it has a good keyboard.
Cons: It doesn't do Windows. Not really a Con for me though. In fact, I think it's great there is no 'Start Screen' or 'Metro Tiles'. One real Con is there aren't many offline apps available. Google is working on that.
Other Thoughts: Great lightweight laptop for traveling and handy around the house for quick web surfing. It probably won't replace your main computer, but it's fine for most online tasks.

Gets the job done
Pros: Does everything I expected of it, and more. More functional than a tablet, more convenient, much more lightweight, and longer battery life than a laptop. When I have all three within reach, I usually grab the Chromebook.
Cons: Could use more apps. Hopefully they will come with time.
Other Thoughts: I always hated laptop touchpads, and did not think I could live without a mouse, but the Chromebook touchpad navigation works quite well, and now I feel a mouse would only slow me down on this device.

Good Little Tab For Surfing
Pros: SSD, Battery
Cons: Can't Run Java
Other Thoughts: A good little tablet for surfing the net. It can't run Java, which puts it out of the game for a lot off differrent things.
