5 out of 5 eggsGreat Machine in almost every way

Pros: Screen on the touch models has good viewing angles.
Scratchpad is really, really good.
Nice set of ports
Incredibly portable
Great battery life
Never gets hot
You can feel the fan but cannot hear it.
The touch screen is so much fun!
The Celeron 2955U + 4GB RAM is super-super fast.

Cons: Keyboard is the weakest point - 3/5
I wish it had 2 x USB 3.0 ports, not one USB 2.0, one 3.0.
I wish that chromeOS would support Steam

Other Thoughts: My opinion is colored because I bought refurbished models from Acer for 15% less than here.

I used to buy thinkpads, T42p's and T60p's. I bought these machines for my sons and they are faster, ligther, longer battery.

If you have to skimp, throw away the 32 GB flash first, as you can buy a 128GB flash for a cheap price and upgrade the machine later.

5 out of 5 eggsAcer Aspire C720P 4gb 32GB SSD

Pros: This product is incredibly light and is plenty powerful for mobile commuting (I am a filmmaker and obviously would not use this for editing but do not find it getting in the way for common commuting).
The battery is awesome. I am writing this on a three day old battery charge.
The speakers are not as bad as other reviews led them on to be. I was afraid of their quality because of what I read but actually think they are good for a laptop of size.
Its rather attractive. I am a black and white fan and think its design is nice.
I love Chrome OS. It flows and works fantastic. Between the key commands, track pad, and touch screen functionality, the ease of use far surpass windows and mac systems.

Cons: The build does feel a bit cheap but absolutely not a turn off considering the price. The externals are all plastic so be prepared for that--but know it does not get in the way of functionality at all and still looks nice.
The number of programs or "apps" have covered the basics for commuting but are still young in the making for specialized computing.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this computer to anyone looking for fast and convenient mobile computing. I purchased the 32gb, 4gb package to allow for more heavy lifting and also longevity--I would suggest this.

1 out of 5 eggsNot ready for prime time

Pros: Light, long battery, boots up in under 7 seconds like it claims.

Cons: Issues connecting to WI-Fi due to being out of range, an issue my android phone and Windows laptop don't have. A lot of websites are not optimized for Chromebooks, dead links on important sites like your banking sites. So you go to click on a link and it doesn't do anything.

Other Thoughts: This laptop only has one purpose, to surf the Internet. When it cannot even do that, the product is absolutely worthless.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome casual computer

Pros: We needed a computer to use while we play games or sit in front of the tv. We had an old netbook, but the boot time, updates, and security scans made it barely usable. This machine solves all of those issues with a bigger (touch!) screen. I had updates the other day I needed to reboot to install. At first I was depressed that it would be 10 minutes before I was fully back at a stable state again. Then I remembered the fast boot and it was just 10 seconds when I was back. Match that with the fast performance and this machine is a pleasure to use. Pick it up and you are working in 10 seconds at desktop-like speeds.

Multiple accounts work great. Syncing with Chrome browsers on other platforms is a mixed blessing. It can be nice to get my links bar, but search history I usually don't want to share.

Netflix streaming works fine.

With the SSH plug-in for Chrome, I can also remotely log in and do work-related things as well.

Haven't had a chance to really use the camera setup yet.

Cons: It isn't too obvious how to do a right click (get a context menu). The keyboard is also a little odd, but not the slightest bit hard to use. Some of the key placements for unusual things are different than I have grown accustomed to on other machines.

I'd also like a higher resolution screen.

Both of these are very minor and would take a great machine and make it perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsWell built product

Pros: Clean look and feel. Extremely easy setup. Great first impression. Does exactly what it is designed for incredibly well. Limited learning curve. Very fast. I'd almost consider this for my elderly parents if it were a bit larger, but definitely for a student.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Google is definitely working toward a complete experience here and this Chromebook gives a first glimpse of a world to come. I can see Google for Education taking off with this and similar Chromebooks as the base platform.
