Pros: This is my second Chromebook, and I had a lot of trouble with a similar scale Windows device from the same mfg. But this is so much better, if you are willing to learn and don't need Windows apps. I do fairly complex photo editing, spread sheets, create and manage web sites on this. Great for travel. If you know what a Chromebook is. The build quality w.aluminum finish is so high that most who see it think it cost a cool grand. You can run a Windows PC from these using "remote desktop."
Cons: Assuming you know what a Chromebook is, if all you need is a tablet and not a conventional keyboard, this is a bit heavy to hold for just reading books while skate boarding.
Other Thoughts: Ask anyone who uses one, the absence of Windows or Safari are PROs, not CONs for Chromebooks.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: No bloatware! Very fast, low cost and low power usage. No overheating issues as some have reported. Allows use of a more "writer" shaped screen (vertical) than Chromebooks. A good buy once you learn a few Chrome OS tricks.
Cons: Might be better to include a pad on the keyboard just like the Chromebooks, since anyone using both and a PC has to switch between 3 somewhat different mouse behavior modes. Keys to dim/brighten screen do not work with all monitors. Would be nice to be able to tip the keyboard to a bit steeper angle. I can see how it might over heat if attached to a TV or monitor with the enclosed bracket.
Other Thoughts: 1st step with these or a Chromebook is to put a 64, 128 or 256 GB SD card in it and set your default download folder to that card in the settings menu.READ FULL REVIEW
