Do not buy for for High School Laptops

Pros: - Probably fine if purchased for personal use

Cons: - We purchased this product for use by students in school. The laptop does not have a huge lifespan and fails to offer decent user experience.
- The internal hardware really cant support the screen.
- DO NOT TRY TO ADD COMPLEX FIREWALLS AND OUTSIDE SOFTWARE, the thing will stop functioning
- Keyboard sucks
- Trackpad breaks quickly
- Students are dumb ("Let's try to break the chromebooks")
- Administration is dumber ("lets buy the cheapest laptop on the market, install thirty viruses because the internet said it was a good idea, then blame IT when the computers dont work")
- Actually gave me depression, I learned this after I consulted my therapist

Other Thoughts: - DONT BUY FOR SCHOOL USE, ACTUALLY PAY FOR DECENT COMPUTERS

Underpowered, low-quality screen

Pros: It's cheap. Good keyboard.

Cons: Slow. Low-quality screen. No touchscreen.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this machine - especially since a newer version is now available. We've had this machine in the family for about 1 year now. In that time, we've found that even Chrome OS - as simple as it is - really needs 4GB of RAM for any kind of "multi-tasking." The screen is ugly with low brightness level. And, most importantly, anyone who is used to interacting with smartphones, tablets & laptops with touchscreens will instantly feel awkward when they find this machine does NOT have a touchscreen. Bottom line, you can find better. Keep searching!

Good within limitations

Pros: Light, durable, silent, cheap, good keyboard, good trackpad. SD card slot and HDMI out along with USB and Headset jack. Battery life is fair to good.

Cons: Performance is not good. Passable if you are patient, but if you have to have lots of tabs open and/or watch streaming video > 720p, this machine will chug.

The display is not very bright (max is around 250 nits), and the viewing angles are poor.

Battery standby time could be better.

Other Thoughts: Then again...screens of the same quality can be found on windows laptops ranging from 400 to 1,000 USD.

Bottom line is that while this machine has real limits, what you DO get is totally usable for basically everything most people need.

If you need a laptop for school/work and you're really pinching pennies, this may be just what you need.

Folding plastic portfolio.

Pros: Its a Chromebook. Cheap. Decent screen. Portable. Battery life is great.

Cons: Its a Cromebook.
Pain to open when closed: you will need two hands to pry it open.Very top heavy: if you even so much as poke the screen it will fall over. Everything about it fells cheap. The keys, screen, ports, and touch pad all feel like what they are: cheap, low density plastic. The casing the monitor is in bends so much that if you arent carefull the screen will snap in half. Some models have a touch pad that dont dipress and act more like a touch screen. This makes it incredibly difficult to drag-and-drop things like moving documents and navigating maps. If you can at all afford a better one: quickly pass this one up.

Other Thoughts: Our school has orderd many of these and they have woroed very well for what we do. They are a pain to use thogh for said reasons.

Love it, but speakers are horrible

Pros: LIght, compact, functional

Cons: Speakers

Other Thoughts: This is my first Chromebook. Love everything about it except the speakers. Speakers failed in less than a year. Previous to failing, they were very hard to hear when you are using on your lap (non-hard surface). Because they did not work well on lap, I used headphones so I could hear. This isn't a big deal, but it was a pain to always have to put in headphones all the time, and had to bring them with me everywhere. I also couldn't show people videos w/o having to attach a portable speaker, or even listen to music. Seems like a small thing if the speakers are the only problem, but it's a pretty important part of the overall usefulness of the product.

I love this thing

Pros: Light: I can carry this like it's an actual notebook. I can hold this BY THE SCREEN and not damage it. It is a huge improvement to my bulky 17" laptop.

Speed: The OS is based on the Chrome browser without much else installed. This means there is not much slowing it down. You can boot up, log in, and open the browser in well less than a minute.

Battery: >7 hours battery of light web browsing. That is amazing.

UI: The UI is very simple and intuitive. In fact, the whole thing is beautiful in its simplicity. If my technophobic grandma wants a laptop, this is what I am getting her.

Google: Everything is done through Google services, rather than installed programs. Whether this is a pro or a con is up to you.

Linux: Chrome OS is Linux based and there are ways to install Ubuntu along side it. If you're into that, like me, it is a good way to turn it into a general purpose computer.

Cons: Limited: You can install chrome extensions but not normal programs. If you need some special program installed and there is no Chrome extension or Google service, this would not suit you.

Updates: System updates are automatic without any prompt or way to know they are happening. This has slowed my Internet connection. I have not found a way to disable this.

Google: If you don't like Google's cloud services, this can get annoying.

Other Thoughts: I installed Ubuntu and now run Firefox on this. I'm such a rebel.
