Purchased as a replacement for a laptop for netflix, it has evolved into an app machine I use for my numerous apps I use on my phone.
It doesn't have a lot of travel and the keys do feel a bit 'cheap'.However, if you type a lot you'll have no problems at all.The machine is light, very attractive and thin.It's responsive and quick.I cannot speak to battery life as I've not run it flat yet.This machine is replacing an Acer C720 and I'm extremely pleased with it.Obviously with Chromebooks setting up is extremely simple.Running Android apps on the Samsung Chromebook Plus is very good.
So this works perfectly, but I would say that if you are not a big google user, especially if you don't use google drive or gmail, a chromebook might not be the best laptop for you.
The two biggest gripes that people have (the small keyboard and the lack of keyboard back lighting), are over exaggerated and I have never had a problem with them.Pros:- amazing screen- ChromeOS is a pleasure to work with- keyboard & trackpad are excellent- build quality is better than $1000+ windows/mac laptops- battery life is awesome- integration with google services is seamless- very easy to use for both novices and professionals- touch screen and stylus are a good bonusCons:- OP1 chipset can stutter sometimes, if you'll be doing HEAVY work on Chrome you might want to go with a chromebook with an m3 processor or betterOverall: This is the best money I have spent on a tech product in a long time.
I like it, but I don't love it.
The Chromebook isn't it.
I don't even know where to begin with this half baked product, In my opinion Samsung should have never released this product in its condition, I'm a diehard Samsung fan boi and this item thoroughly disappointed me, I should just be glad it didn't explode on me, the idea was great but the execution was a flop, Google never delivered on the software and Samsung failed on the hardware, as soon as I started using it I noticed the software and hardware issues, the screen was flickering randomly and the build quality was questionable, clearly not Galaxy grade material, I was going to try the Chromebook Pro version but Amazon pulled that before I could order it, my only other safe option at this point is the Galaxy Tab S3....
I don't know if this would work if you have just three or four tabs open in Chrome and one or two android apps running, but I don't consider that to a reasonable limitation for the device as described.
I used this product for 3 weeks it starts glitching 1 a day I’m like well it’s cheap I should except that..... wait another 2 weeks and I can’t use it cause it closes me out or the screen zones in and out on its own.
DO NOT BUY UNTIL YOU READ THAT SAMSUNG ACKNOWLEDGED AND FIXED THE ISSUE, AND THAT THEY ARE REPLACING ALL DEFECTIVE MACHINES AT NO COST.I don't think this is likely to happen, though.
