Pros: I ordered this chromebook on a Friday, got it the next Monday. It starts instantly either from powering up or opening it. The chicklet keyboard has a great feel and the machine overall does not feel cheap. The speakers are surprisingly loud, especially for a notebook this size. There are only a couple of smudges on the outside of the chromebook, you wouldn't even know it is refurbished! The battery gets around seven hours which is plenty for what I need this for.
Cons: The trackpad can be a little off/annoying at times but it isn't that bad.
Other Thoughts: You really have to know what you are getting with the chromebook. Most people complain about the OS and how it is only online. But when don't you have internet access? Yes everything runs off of applications, but they run smoothly and Google has put out and is working on more offline applications. You also have to understand what you get with 2GB of RAM, it is not a multi-tasking machine. It runs smooth and considerably quick while doing only a couple of tasks at a time. The Chrome OS is constantly improving and is simple to use, all you need is a Google account and they walk you through it within minutes.
I wanted a solid notebook to take to my classes for notes because I have built a nice desktop for myself. The chromebook is perfect for me because it is quick, smooth, and I can take my notes on it, upload them to Google Drive and then open them on my desktop later if I need them.
You can't beat this price, and you can't tell it's refurbished (It runs like new).
Know what you're getting in to. This chromebook is for internet browsing and word processing. It runs off of applications that are mostly online, but in today's world when DON'T you have internet access? 2GB of RAM will get you the same output on any other machine with 2GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD keeps everything running super smooth. Do you homework, save money, get this chromebook. That is all.
Pros: My Samsung Chromebook fits PERFECTLY inside the pouch. It is easy to take out and put inside.
Cons: You cannot charge the chromebook very easily while it is inside of the sleeve, a small hole for the charging port would have been nice, but for ten bucks who honestly even cares?

Pros: The design is intuitive and cool looking. Equipped with LEDs and a window on the side, the case is aesthetically pleasing. Unlike most towers, it sits on top of feet on the bottom which allows for greater air flow as well as a removable dust tray on the bottom. There is a hard drive dock on top which made transferring all of my files (including my 70 GB music library) from my laptop quick and easy. No screws are required so building was as simple as it gets. It also has a convenient amount USB ports.
Cons: This is a really dumb complaint, but the power button does not have a backlight, it is just a solid button. It shouldn't bother me, but it does.
Other Thoughts: Looks awesome. Ideal specs. Spectacular tower case.READ FULL REVIEW
