Samsung Series 5 Chromebook - 12.1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Nice screen colors and resolution is pretty sharp on the 12.1" screen
Has good quality body for being plastic
Super light for portability
Fast due to the really light ChromeOS
Aura UI makes it like a sharper version of Win7

Cons: Not a lot of decent games available yet
Not a lot of offline abilities there but this is growing fast
No CD drive but not really a necessity

Other Thoughts: I got this for writing, web surfing and light browser games(which I enjoy more than console games). This this has so far exceeded my expectations. I know it is an older model with an Atom processor. Don't get me wrong its actually a decent one, per Intel's site it is a 64bit structure, dual core with hyperthreading, can act like its 4 core would be my assumption. I am impressed. The functionality of Chrome OS now with the Aura UI makes it similar to windows and mac so there isn't much of a learning curve now. If you are minimalist like me, i would not pass this up. Great for either a main computer or a second computer for those who want a physical keyboard not a tablet screen keyboard.
