4 out of 5 eggsIt does everything you want using CHROME & GOOGLE

Pros: This is great if all you want is to use Chrome & Google.
There are other options, but the user in my home has put away his hp and uses this now.
I have recommended the Chromebook to several persons who don't need more tools.

Cons: Max volume isn't very loud.
Takes a bit to get used to small size - keyboard and screen

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Machine

Pros: Lightweight, fast, chrome OS, linux compatible

Cons: Battery life is poor for such a small machine

Other Thoughts: This thing is awesome, hands down. I use this for college and it comes in handy. I was unsure about using chrome OS but I decided to take the plunge (I bought mine used online for $135 so it was a steal). It is linux compatible with a program called crouton. I'm sure there are others out there but this is a pretty popular one. Gives you Ubuntu 12.04 with the option of XFCE or Unity.

Now here's the kicker. This is obviously not any sort of desktop replacement or a main laptop replacement. HOWEVER, chrome's remote access app is a game changer in my opinion. You don't have to give up your windows or mac os experience whatsoever. I'm able to remote in to my desktop running windows 7 PREMIUM which by default doesn't have full remote access. However with the chrome app you don't need that feature.

As stated above the battery life isn't all that impressive, or even average for a laptop this size. I'm averaging about 4 hours with normal use. That's the only trade off with this chromebook in comparison to other netbooks. It's nothing to fret over in my opinion. The speed of this laptop is well worth the cost, which is nothing as far as laptops and netbooks go. If you've been on the fence about it, I say go for it. Don't forget to utilize the remote desktop app. You'd be surprised how useful a lot of the chrome apps are.

Hope this helps in your decision.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for college students

Pros: Small, light, and has a long battery life. With Google Chromebook's you get access programs like Google doc's, spreadsheets etc. and not having to buy additional programs saves a lot of money

Cons: Chromebook's are "Internet browsers", meaning you cant download programs not on the Google market place. so no firefox T_T

Other Thoughts: if you do take it back and forth to class try using the offline feature so you can use google doc's when your schools free internet craps out

1 out of 5 eggsChromeBook failed in 1st month, Acer TechSupport non-existent

Pros: Light-weight. Attractive. Easy to use for e-mail and web

Cons: Stopped working within 1st month: lost power while reading e-mail and would not reboot. Though Chat support worked, the agent suggested I phone Acer Tech Support. Although both the web site and the Chat Agent confirmed my serial number and SNID number, numerous efforts to reach Acer tech support failed with the automated message, "We do not recognize that SNID."

Other Thoughts: I researched the ChromeBook before purchase and thought it would be good for simple needs for an elderly friend. Its early failure was a great disappointment, and the impossibility of finding support from Acer was an even greater disappointment.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's all relative

Pros: Cheap, great hardware. The perfect laptop to use for school. Lightning fast, easy apps to use. You will not get better hardware for the price. I opted to spend the extra 20 dollars to get this particular model (4GB ram), but it probably didn't make much difference

Cons: This was my first experience with a chromebook. Wasn't really sure what I was getting into when I purchased it, but I figured for the specs I was getting, it'd be worth the price. There are many limitations to the computer. You can NOT install/use java, or steam (which sucks because I'm into counter strike/other steam games). There are ways to install Linux onto the chromebook, but unless you really know what you're doing, it can be a pain in the rear for some people. Even with linux intalled, I was unable to use java. Steam installed but the game's were completely unplayable. Chromebook gives no way to properly update your video card, or check to see if your drivers are up to date. Also no CD/DVD rom

Other Thoughts: All in all, this is hands down the best laptop on the market for somebody looking for a basic laptop with no gaming. Unless google has an app for it though, don't plan on doing anything outside of basic web-surfing with this laptop. With linux experience, some of the obstacles can be overcome, but not easy for the average-joe.

4 out of 5 eggsBetter than Samsung if you upgrade it

Pros: Cheap price, Chrome OS, nicely designed.

Cons: Slow hard drive..expect boot times of 30-40 seconds. Low cheap RAM should be replaced.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this, then bought 8GB of RAM and a 64 GB SSD and swapped it with the cheap 320GB hard drive....WOW what a difference...boot times are now less than EIGHT seconds, response times loading up pages are way fast....this little computer is now my regular use at the house for web surfing and working online....if you have the money to pop extra RAM and an SSD into it, do it!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Notebook

Pros: This chromebook was originally bought for my mother for a birthday gift. After showing the simple operating system I fell in love with it. Personally, I am a very techy teen (do not judge my review by my age), and it even met my requirements. The more I used it, the more I realized how much I do on the internet. Its battery life is amazing, but not an ideal gaming computer. There is 320 gb of local storage, which is more than enough with the additional 100gb of free storage in google drive. After one day I have found "cloud" replacements for all the things I typically do on the computer. I would sincerely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a secondary computer/ laptop. The reason I say this is because of its different local storage system. Google WILL store all of your music (up to 20,000 songs) and store unlimited amount of normal sized pictures in the cloud. Call me kooky, but I still like having a computer with the pictures and music physically on it. My mother uses this chromebook as a visual teaching aid (she is an art teacher), the possibilities with this thing is endless. In conclusion, no matter your age this is a perfect notebook for you.

Cons: Bottom can get warm after long use. Doesn't get even as close to as hot as a laptop though.

Other Thoughts: 1.I wrote this review with a chromebook.
2.My mother is not good at computers. She made a google powerpoint the first day she got it, without instruction by me. This is amazing considering the day before she didn't know how to turn the mac we have for 3 years on or off.
3.Just like chrome browser

1 out of 5 eggsA huge disappointment

Pros: Nice little alternative to a laptop. Basic, clean, all the staff were disappointed we had to send it back... Nice and shiny is great - when it works.

Cons: The product wouldn't connect to anything we had, I spent a good amount of time researching, calling, and trying to fix the situation even resetting and altering numerous routers. It just plain wouldn't let our employees sign in, and would not connect. Now we have to pay to restock the products and ship them back despite not working as advertised - which quite frankly sucks. I have never had this issue from Newegg before, and I've never gotten so little help from Google before... Very disappointed in both.

The thing that really grinds my grits is they won't even try to help us because the product is open. I'm sorry, but I'm not telepathic, I can't tell if a product is going to do what it's supposed to do until I plug in the battery and hit the power button. Most any IT will tell you that's when the fun begins, because it's either gonna work, or you're going to have to run for the nearest extinguisher.

Other Thoughts: It was a pain getting any information on the problem, and some of the help topics drummed up stuff completely irrelevant and out dated to the product itself. When I looked into the product closer, I read from numerous sources that it doesn't even support WPA2 connections and prefers the ever weak WEP. I tried WEP and still couldn't get a solid line to hold. When I expressed that, they said they could test it but that if it connected to one of their routers we'd be billed the stocking fee. If it connects on their end, good for them - but I'm not driving to their warehouse so I can do my job on a product advertised to connect well with what we've got here.

5 out of 5 eggsOverall great computer

Pros: Fast, easy to use, easy to maintain, no need to worry about viruses, easy to make the computer as fast as it was out-of-the-box (just clear your cookies/cache), free storage in the Google Cloud, easily manageable files, easy file download, affordable, secure, usable without internet connection

Cons: Can't use tablet, can't use iTunes (but that is not Google's fault, it's Apple's for not having a web-based alternative), can't run programs like Java (due to them being under the same conditions as iTunes), need an internet connection to set up

Other Thoughts: I love this computer, and all the applications I wish to use, I can either find online or a web-based alternative. However, if you have an iPhone, or are planning on getting one, keep in mind that you will not be able to sync your phone with a Chromebook. I would recommend keeping a low-quality laptop or desktop to run iTunes on.
