Pros: Nice hardware, OS is OK. Size is good, display looks nice, keyboard works well. It arrived in original box and was very clean for a refurb, even the battery seems to work well.
Cons: ChromeOS doesn't really do everything I thought it would do. Working with documents offline is not possible with this computer. Serial terminals don't work very well. RDP costs money to get and may not be too much better than the serial terminal.
Other Thoughts: Can't seem to make it boot "normal" operating systems, even in developer mode. Wish Google or Samsung would release a "normal" BIOS for this older laptops. Just can't seem to make this computer do the things I need under ChromeOS where a more generic Linux might work. Haven't wanted to put Ubuntu on it, really need a Redhat derivative like CentOS.
