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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SMBellows from Samsung Chromebook It is wonderful to be able to have items from phone on my computer without having to hook up to a USB port. It is easy for me to use a chromebook after using my Android phone all day than a Computer with an Windows operating system. So, I got rid of my Windows Operating system computer for a Chromebook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AtlBritGuy from Great Everyday Laptop This is my first Chromebook and after doing a lot of research I am glad I went with the Chromebook 3. Build quality is excellent and I actually like the finish of the case. Boot speed is crazy fast (literally a matter of seconds) and the Chrome OS is very stable with good features. I added a 32 GB MicroSD card, so storage space isn't much of an issue if I want to temporarily store images from my camera. If you have never used a Chromebook before, make sure you read the quick start guide and do some research about the Chrome OS. There are keyboard shortcuts for accessing Caps Lock for instance (press the ALT and Search key to turn it on). The touch pad doesn't have a right click button (like a Mac) but you can get the right click functions by using two fingers to click. The screen is great considering the price point and is fine for what you will be doing with this device. I went with the 4 GB version, it's definitely worth the small premium in the price. Don't expect perfection. You're not going to get the same quality as a $1000 Windows machine but you are going to get an exceptional value for a great budget laptop that should give you years of service, as long as you don't abuse it. I still use my Windows laptop for playing games and using Photoshop and Lightroom for my photography, but for sitting around surfing the web and doing basic photo editing for sharing pictures, the Chromebook 3 fits the bill perfectly. I highly recommend the Samsung Chromebook 3.
