Product Description

Innovatively designed to go as long as you can, the Samsung Chromebook Series 5 lets you spend the whole day surfing, streaming, and working on the web on just one charge. With less than 10-second booting and an amazing 8.5 hours of battery life, the light and sleek Chromebook Series 5 gives you the ultimate web experience that you won't find on any other laptop.

Samsung Chromebook
Search for the best web experience and you'll find the new Samsung Chromebook Series 5 (see larger image).

The Chrome-based operating system features a streamlined user interface, making it easier for you to navigate the web--where you already spend most of your computing time. All your apps, documents, and settings are stored safely in the cloud. Every Chrome notebook runs millions of web apps, from games to spreadsheets to photo editors. And the Samsung Chromebook uses advanced technology to help prevent malware and viruses from accessing your data without you ever having to lift a finger.

This Samsung Chromebook in White features a 12.1-inch LED-backlit display with an anti-reflective screen. It's powered by a next-generation, dual-core Intel processor, which combines performance and energy efficiency to provide new levels of support for applications like games, as well as Adobe Flash technology for improved access to multimedia sites such as YouTube and BBC iPlayer. Weighing in at 3.3 pounds, the ultra compact design provides maximum portability without compromising on functionality and optimal performance

You'll be able to connect to ultra-fast Wireless-N networks in your home or office, and it includes two USB ports, a 4-in-1 memory card reader, buttonless touchpad with multi-gesture support, and a 1-megapixel webcam for video chats and snapping pics for social networking sites.

Chromebook Features

Instant On

The Samsung Chromebook gets you on the web as quickly as possible. It boots in less than 10 seconds and resumes instantly from sleep. Open the lid, and you're back on the web so you don't miss a beat. And Chromebooks are designed to get faster over time as updates are released.

Find Your Next Favourite Web App

Every Chromebook runs millions of web apps, from games to spreadsheets to photo editors. Thanks to the power of HTML5, many apps keep working even in those rare moments when you're not connected. To try the latest apps, visit the Chrome Web Store or just type in a URL. You can easily create shortcuts on your new tab page to launch your favourite web applications, so that you can enhance your online experience. No CDs required.

Simplicity in Sync

Chromebooks keep your apps, documents, favourites and settings safely in the cloud. That means you can login to a friend's Chromebook and access your profile without disturbing theirs. Or, if you lose or break your Chromebook you have nothing to worry about. Just get another and login, you will be back up and running in minutes like nothing happened.

Forever Fresh

Your Chromebook gets better and better over time, unlike a traditional PC. When you turn it on, it updates itself. Automatically. All of your apps stay up-to-date, and you get the latest and greatest version of the operating system without having to think about it. Annoying update prompts not included.

SuperBright 12.1-inch LED display is 40% brighter.

Friends Let Friends Log In

Chromebooks are easy to share with family and friends. They can log in to experience all of their own Chrome settings, apps and extensions, or use a Guest session to browse privately. Either way, no one else using your Chromebook will have access to your email and personal data.

Built-in Security

Chromebooks run the first operating system designed from the ground up to defend against the ongoing threat of malware and viruses. They employ the principle of "defence in depth" to provide multiple layers of protection, including sandboxing, data encryption, and verified boot. Websites load quickly and smoothly and all your apps, documents, and settings are stored safely in the cloud.

Hardware Features

SuperBright LED Display

The anti-reflective 12.1-inch LED display has a mirror effect and produces the sharpest images with 300-nlt brightness, which is up to 40 percent brighter than normal laptops. Get outstanding picture quality and text readability, even when you're outdoors. Enjoy the web longer without straining your eyes.

Wireless-N Wi-Fi

It's easy to get connected to the Web with built-in Wi-Fi, which is compatible with ultra-fast Wireless-N networks (802.11n) as well as backward compatible with older networks (802.11b/g). As your Chromebook boots up, it quickly connects to your favourite wireless network so you're on the web right from the start.

 

Chromebook ports
Easy-to-Use Full-Sized Keyboard

Make the most of the web by using a keyboard that's designed for it. Your Chromebook comes equipped with a dedicated search key, a new row of web-enabled keys, and a comfortable, full-size layout that doesn't cramp your fingers so you can get more done and make fewer errors.

Longer Battery Lifespan with PowerPlus

Samsung's intelligent battery charging technology enables the battery to keep 80 percent of its original capacity for up to 1,000 recharges--more than 3x longer than a typical battery. This makes our batteries more economical and environmentally friendly since fewer batteries need to be replaced over the lifecycle.

I am extremely happy with my Chromebook. It is very fast,the battery life is fantastic and the OS is brilliant. My only problems have been:
The speakers being on the bottom/side, when I place my Chromebook on my bed, the sound practically disappears
Sometimes it is hard to click and drag with the track-pad
The finish does get dirty quickly
I bought the WIFI only, not the 3G.
I enjoy my Chromebook so much I am looking to buy the 3G version. It is perfect for bringing to college everyday as it is lightweight, small (but not too small, the screen is great for videos and the keyboard is very comfortable). The boot is amazingly quick and it is the first device I have not wanted to modify with extra ram or a larger HDD. The storage on-line is plentiful (and the 16GB SSD is also handy), the WIFI is quick, both to connect and to down/upload (although the range isn't brilliant). The battery life can last days on end and the charge is very quick (when you plug the charger in it re-calculates the time left to the time left to finish charging) The VGA adapter is very useful although the Chromebook's screen blanks when using VGA. The extensions and apps are perfect for every need. This device is brilliant for everyday use and almost everything except hardcore gaming (unless Angrybirds is hardcore). If you are not going to be near a router all day then I suggest the 3G version as a lot of the functionality goes when offline as this is an on-line OS. If you have a phone that can turn 3G into WIFI, that is also a good idea (I often hi-jack my friend's mobile WIFI for a quick game of angry birds before lesson)
A fantastic all round device.

Samsung Chromebook, what a fantastic piece of kit.

this has got to be the best piece of kit i have seen used or owned in a long time i do like my gadgets so i doubt if i will be going back to my windows PC, its fast, light in weight/portable, the BT Hub using the wireless connection is great as I've tried it in different parts of the house and i get a good connection every time no matter where i am, its ease of use nice bright screen, the webcam well it just works and very well too good picture quality crisp and sharp, on youtube its great with a nice bright picture quality, the keyboard is nice and quiet and responsive, very little fan noise not like some laptops/netbooks I've heard in the past, the delivery was amazing ordered it on the 28/December at 10.10am delivered by DPD on the 29/December at 11.45am now that's what i call a delivery, mind you i did pay extra for that at seven pounds fourteen pence, but it was worth it.

It seemed a little strange at first with the keys being slightly different than a conventional keyboard but i soon got used to it, as I'm sure you will, the back forward, reload, full screen, and search function keys are a nice touch so once you get in to using the shortcut keys it will be a breeze using this fantastic Samsung Chromebook.

The trackpad doesn't work. I've followed the instructions about rebooting the computer, and after several attempts, the trackpad worked briefly before stopping again. The computer works fine without it, but it is a little irritating to have to take a mouse with a compact laptop. When I looked for help with it online, I gathered that others have had problems with the trackpad too.

practical, fast, no configs. especially good for the kids. It is not a replacement for a full function pc (mac, pc, ubuntu) as you are limited to the browser and its apps and a local storage just for basic usage.

I won't go on for very long - it's just that I'm in my mid-70's now (a family man and only earned a basic wage). I have been an early up-taker - have had Vic 20 (worked on Basic with a cassette tape and 4K of internal memory) - a Sinclair, a BBC, all the Amstrads, and have currently an iMac (3 years but am sticking to Snow Leopard), an Android 2.3 8" Tablet, an ANDROID phone, and a Win 7 x 64 with core i3 and great spec. - have an original iPod Classic, Nano, Sandisk Fuze, Creative Stone MP3, all the Kindles (and goodness knows what else).
For me, dear fellow mugs,the search is over and I can rest in Peace at last!! I could go through a comparison of OS's - but why bother - like most of us I really only use the kit for internet, music, e-books, audiobooks, news, iPlayer, rarely writing the odd letter and keeping 3 or 4 spreadsheets going (although when working I was locked into e-mail, WP and Spreadsheet 7 days a week).
For the last years since Google Chrome browser beta came out, I have been using it as my default browser (except for short periods when the latest update was sticky - a rare occurrence). It helps to explore this before purchasing a Chromebook, but is not essential.
Before the series 5 wi-fi beauty arrived yesterday 28 December 11 (I ordered on 23 Dec - Yodel suits me fine by the way)I took a close look at the latest Chrome browser's functions, read up what is available about the Chrome book and explored the Google apps.
I also uploaded some 2.5 gb of mp3 music to the Cloud (Mspot which provided 5 Gb free at present and is very easy to use - it takes time as even broadband upload speeds are very slow of course).
I received the Chrome Book yesterday at 11.00 am, it is a Samsung Titanium and is in my opinion Beautiful to behold.
