This review is from: Toshiba TransMemory 32GB Flash Drive Model PFU032U-1ACW
Pros: This is an inexpensive reliable bootable USB drive. Mine holds more than 10 different live distros for booting and repairing/backing-up non bootable MS windows computers. Two of the distros are for scanning and cleaning machines of viruses. Also has room for several tar balls of installed systems. This will boot on any computer I plug it into although sometimes I have to use a PLoP boot cd if the system is too old and does not support usb booting. If you use this for transferring large amounts of data be ready to spend more time writing the data to the drive.
Cons: I would not recommend this drive for transferring large amounts of data since it is on the slow side.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Essentially instant on from full shutdown. Or just close the lid and it goes to sleep. Awakes instantly upon opening the lid.
Light and thin. Good battery life. Great for Gmail and Google Drive. The touch pad is the best I have ever used. The keyboard is touch typing friendly. Comes with Chrome Remote Desktop installed which is great for remote assistance or accessing your office computer. Also has a shell with ssh or use the secure shell Google app.
Cons: Does not yet play Net flix! (This can be done using Chrome Remote Desktop with an MS Windows computer running Net flix.
Other Thoughts: Our children have several tablets so my wife was familiar with those. When I took her to look at the Chromebook last December she said that was what she wanted. She uses it several times a day to check Gmail and surf the web. She still likes the larger screen of her office computer to watch Net flix and play games.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very snappy with windows 7 64bit on a ASrock mb and 4 gig memory.
Cons: I don't have a need to run windows 7 other than on certain occasions in a virtual machine.
I can not make it run any linux version in any mode other than vesa video.
Had to use nomodeset with Ubuntu just to get it to boot to a command line.
