4 out of 5 eggs Good for web-browsing if you don't need Windows specific apps 11/26/2013

This review is from: SAMSUNG XE303C12-A01US Chromebook Samsung Exynos 1.70GHz 2GB Memory 16GB SSD 11.6" Google Chrome OS

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.

find my Samsung runs Chrome fairly fast, about the same as a decent Window-based laptop with a fast Internet connection. There are a fair number of "offline apps" now, so you can do many functions if no Internet is available: word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, file operations including videos and music, e-books, e-mail editing, games, etc.
I like the full-size keyboard and the trackpad. The screen is 11 inches on the diagonal, and the speakers are loud (though a bit tinny). The display is crisp and clear; the surface is a dull matte finish which I strongly prefer over the glossy, glaring surface that most screens seem to have these days. Wireless connection was extremely simple to setup, and connection strength seems very good. There are ports for an SD card, USB 2 and USB 3, and HDMI.

The weight is only a little over 1 kilogram, and I find that the battery life is pretty decent – about 6 hours of web-browsing.

Cons:

If you need to run specific Windows-based software, this is probably not the computer for you.

I read some comments from folks who say the shell is ‘creaky’, but I find the construction and materials to be reasonably solid – about the same as any other sub-$500 laptop.

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.
