Rated 4 out of 5 by hollykay from Best of the Inexpensive Laptops! Considering the cost of this laptop, it really does everything I need. The only downside I've experienced is it getting laggy if you have too many tabs open, but it isn't too noticeable. If you can get behind the concept of a chromebook, this one is a great machine. I wanted something to part-time use for work (ordering, spreadsheet , ect) and partly use for free writing, and have had no issues with either. The screen size being small isn't the best for entertainment, but really isn't all bad. Battery life is pretty excellent, can stream movies or tv for 6-8 hours or more with no trouble, though the speakers aren't super loud. Still, I'm happy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SevenEightNine from Chromebook 3 good value Nice little device. This is my number one class tool. Combine this device with Google DOCS, Driive, and possibly MS OFFICE 360 and start using the Cloud. This device will be better with 4GB in second version of Samsung Chromebook 3. I added 2GB of SWAP memory to mine to for a total of 4GB, which is needed to keep multiple webpages running smoothly. This is easily done with one short-cut and one command. P.S. Software Offer included for 1 year of free software from AirDroid(Premium version) is not for Chromebook 3s

Rated 5 out of 5 by godstirm23 from Excellent choice This is the third Chromebook I have had. These were so popular with my grandchildren (and inexpensive enough) that I have given the previous two to them. All Chromebooks run the same software so that is not important. The Samsung models are very, very durable and with kids (even teens), this is important. All of the various connections are there, the memory is expandable,i I even attach a portable hard drive. I no longer even have a Windows machine and have not lost the ability to do anything. I recommend the SSI G models if you have kids or travel. These things take a beating and never fail. Also, I recommend getting the 4 gigs of ram. (I had it on a previous model and opted for only 2 this time - it doesn't make a big difference but it is slightly slower. Excellent machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tabsam from Great Value for Price So I'm going to start off by commenting on the looks of the chromebook (which was the bad of my purchase). It is ugly and the chrome logo in the top corner adds to this ugliness. The black matte finish looks very tacky. HOWEVER the product it self is great value for money - features are amazing and the speed of the chromebook is great. Overall very very happy with the purchase - and in the interim I will purchase a sticker decal for my laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Insanescribblez from I paid much less than this is worth. I have been having computer issues for awhile now. Got tired of upgrading reinstalling etc... So I saw this for, what i thought was, a decent price. I have had ir for a few days now and it has far exceeded expectations. Only problem I have is only the google web store is where you get apps from, but the way the system is set up, it makes the machine unhackable. That is a big pus for me. Good work Samsung.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gregman from The Real Deal Just buy it. This is the real deal. The perfect travel companion of a laptop. Lightweight, fast, reliable, good battery life. What more can you ask for? It is for the simple no frills person who just wish to surf the net, check emails, watch youtube, read articles online. This is by far one of the best products I've ever purchased. Price is awesome too:)

Everything works through the Chrome browser. Cons: Not many apps or software that can help in any development work

Rated 5 out of 5 by Temgrad from Fast Startup! Samsung fan forever I purchase this as a replacement for a smaller tablet and i'm glad i did!!! This is very lightweight yet powerful in performance. I recently downloaded AirDroid and was easily able to link my Samsung phone to the chrome book. Great value. I highly recommend this for easy online surfing, email, and Netflix.
