5.0 out of 5 stars Nearly Perfect 27 Oct 2012
By Captain Awesome TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Style Name:Chromebook Wifi
This will be a long review. For those wanting a short summary, I'll include one at the end.

I've owned the Cr-48 for a while, which was a kind of test unit Google sent out to people to beta test the operating system. That came out a long time ago and none of the commercial units have felt good enough to me to justify buying, until this one. They were always a little too expensive, despite the obvious advantages.
I purchased my unit elsewhere because I managed to order early from Amazon, but they were unable to get the product to me by the date indicated.

The software

For those unclear, Chrome OS (which the Chromebook runs) is fundamentally different to a Windows, Mac or Linux-based laptop, desktop or netbook. This is because it runs the web. No native applications exist specifically for this machine. There are apps (sometimes referred to as Chrome apps) but they also work in the Chrome browser.

Because this computer runs what many call 'just a browser' it has several advantages, as well as disadvantages when compared to a Windows machine. I've chosen Windows for most comparisons here as more people typically use Windows than a Mac or Linux machine.


You cannot install Windows applications (or other native software) on Chrome OS. This means that the computer can operate more securely than a Windows machine simply because the computer knows what should be installed. If something is there that shouldn't be there, the computer will erase all local data and install a version of the software that's stored in a secure area. Once you're connected to the internet, you'll be updated to the most recent version of the operating system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little additional device 28 Nov 2012
Style Name:Chromebook Wifi
I'm most definitely moving more to using cloud applications , and using an iPad was part of that move, but when you want to type a more substantive post, then the iPad keyboard does run out of steam. This device is a great compromise, as I keep it in the lounge for fast access to the web and it has excellent battery life - over 7 hours so far. You can just close the lid and open it again later, and your up and running in seconds. The look and feel is that of a cheaper version of a Mac Book Air. To be clear though, at 700 less expensive, it isn't an Apple. The track pad is good and very usable and the gestures work well. I really like the way it links into the Google infrastructure, with gives you immediate access to all the apps you have already installed with Chrome. It will work though with any standards compliant web applications.

The Google Chrome browser is renowned for speed, and although this certainly is not designed to be the fastest kit on the block, it is perfectly respectable. I always have multiple tabs open, and the experience is good.

This device is not designed to replace a full machine for really heavy duty applications, but then in reality, how often do you need those? With virtual machines in the cloud, this is becoming less important by the day anyway.

I think for most people, who just want to browse the web and use cloud applications, this unit is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab for fast web surfing and research 3 Nov 2012
Style Name:Chromebook Wifi
I'm very satisfied with this Chromebook. Why ?
1- It boots up in less than 10 seconds,not 60 like most laptops.
2- There are no "Daily Updates" because the system updates itself and is ready when you switch on.
3- I can't get any viruses on this Chromebook and so I'll save money on anti-virus software and hassle.
4- The Chrome browser is lightning fast. It blitzes along.
5- I can store all my stuff online ( in the cloud) ... all my letters, spreadsheets, presentations...in Google Drive using Google Docs. I've been given 100 Gb for free, forever. No more Micros**t Office.
6- It has a 16 Gb hard drive and also two USB slots for storing my stuff on memory sticks, memory cards or external hard drives.
7- The full-size keyboard and trackpad are very comfortable and responsive.
8- There is a reader for my SD and SDHC cards.
9- The sound is very good from the speakers ( not " tinny") and the webcam is good too. Not fabulous but good.
10- It is very quiet and so I can listen to quiet music and not hear the laptop whirring.
11- I love it.......and I think you will too.
I would NOT buy it if you want to play games on it but if you want a VERY fast laptop to search the internet and type letters and spreadsheets and one which is hassle free .....no updates, no waiting, no viruses, no problems....THIS IS IT !

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for just getting online. 14 Nov 2012
Style Name:Chromebook Wifi|Verified Purchase
I encouraged an old neighbour (who's desktop had finally given up the ghost)to get one of these Chromebooks as all he uses it for is banking and online shopping. Upon setting it up for him I liked it so much I got one for myself.

Firstly, the positives: My neighbour is in his late 70s with Parkinsons and hated laptops as you have to have decent dexterity to use a trackpad. He finds the trackpad on his Chromebook much easier to use. The two-finger scrolling is much easier than finding a narrow strip down one side, like normal trackpads. It's quite large for such a small laptop and I'd say it's the best trackpad I've used since my Macbook Pro (which was around 1800).

Secondly, there's no maintenance at all. If, like my neighbour, you're confused about virus scans, firewalls and drivers then this is ideal. There is no real operating system for a virus to install itself on and all security is sorted at Google's end. The updates are automatic so this is as plug and play as you're going to get.

Thirdly, the boot time is 7-9 seconds and it's totally silent. It's great to have on the coffee table where you can pick it up and be online within seconds, and while watching TV there are no fans whirring which might annoy others in the same room.

The negatives: Well, there aren't any. I see some of the comments from people complaining it won't do this or that, but you don't buy a netbook around 200 to encode video. It's just for getting online quickly and easily with the minimum of fuss. If you want to encode video, touch up high resolution photos, or watch HD movies then this might not be for you. Get a proper laptop. If you want to just have something that gets you online quickly and securely for browsing, shopping, banking and using facebook and twitter then this is a no-brainer at 230. Snap one up.
