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 5 out of 5 by BanannaM from Great Computer for My Needs I was hesitant about buying a Chromebook because I wasn't sure if the size and features would suit my needs, but my daughter (who has a Samsung Chromebook and loves it) convinced me to give it a try. It has only been a few days so far, but it has been great! It is so lightweight and portable, boots up super-quickly, and has everything I need for surfing the web, checking email, and working on documents and spreadsheets via Google Drive. The keyboard and touchpad are different than what I'm used to (I'm usually on a desktop), but I'm getting used to both. Overall a great small computer that I would recommend and buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RCSwain from Best computer I have owned! I build computers, the Windows kind, and so a I a fairly deep knowledge of these things. Anytime I want to do something on a computer I pick up my Samsung Chromebook 3. It is light, portable, never gets hot, absolutely quiet, great keyboard and trackpad, descent sound, beautiful screen, never has a virus problem. In essence it just works. It is worry free. It is not for heavy duty movie editing or photo manipulating with Adobe, but for the bulk of the things you will use a computer for on an everyday basis it is fantastic. This is my 2nd Samsung Chromebook. I loved my last one, so I bought another!

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 Sjc8187 from Great for the kids! I got this for my 9 yr old for Christmas. It's her first chromebook/laptop and she loves it! She has been using my desktop and laptop for about a year now before she received this and has always love to play her RPG games online. My desktop would move rather slow and keep freezing with her games, but with her chromebook the games work consistently and fast, and while even having multiple tabs open. She is very much a klutz, so the ruggedness, durability, and size were all factors when I purchased this and I am very happy to say that I made the right choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Fits What I Need a Portable Laptop For Second Chromebook I have owned -- had the original Samsung Chromebook when they came out. It is still working with a family member. It was fine but as Chrome OS got more functions I needed a faster processor and more RAM. Also it had a full size SD slot which meant you really couldn't use it as semi-permanent file storage. The micro-SD slot in the Chromebook 3 is a big plus for me, since even though I do most of my work in the cloud, I do have extensive local storage needs and the 64 GB card I installed does the job for me -- actually a bit overkill, but I had it in the drawer. The Chromebook 3 does everything I need except my website development chores, which I still use a Windows-based program for. I expect to move all that over to browser-based app in the near future, now that those have improved so much. The big plus features of the Samsung Chromebook 3 are 1) lightweight; 2) great battery life; 3) better screen than other low priced Chromebooks or "cloud-books"; 4) Way better keyboard. It is so-o-o-o portable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AP1279 from Perfect for what I needed I travel a lot and needed a compact laptop to use for streaming media. This is perfect. It boots quickly, streams smoothly, and doesn't have a problem processing anything I have done yet. Great product at a really reasonable price.
