Excellent shell cover for Chromebook - looking good
on 9 September 2013
I bought this shell cover to protect my Samsung Chromebook and make it stand out from the crowd. (There are several chromebooks in the office where I work). Although a touch on the pricey side, it is made of a robust feeling plastic which has a matt, very slightly textured finish - good for keeping fingerprint free. It fits the Chromebook like a glove. It is in two sections and is easy to attach - you know you've got it right when you here the "clicks" as you push the small clips around the edges into place. The bottom section has a lot of cut outs to allow for ventilation (although the Chromebook itself doesn't have any vents on the base), plus cut outs for the two small speakers. There are also four slightly raised feet - one in each corner. The two at the front are slightly rubberised to prevent the Chromebook from slipping on smooth surfaces. In addition, there are two little pull out legs towards the back, so you can use the Chromebook at a slight angle, which many people find more comfortable for typing. These are easy to open if you grip them on either side, and they support the Chromebook well. The fact that it is raised slightly is good from the point of view of keeping the chromebook cool.
All in all, this cover provides good protection as well as a bit of colourful style to the Chromebook. The Aqua colour is lovely and very true to the picture on the website. It does add a little bit of weight but not much and you should also note that the hinge area at the back is quite open (necessarily so because of where the ports/power connection are). Look at the pictures to see what I mean. The Chromebook even wearing its smart new cover is still very light. It adds only very slightly to the overall dimensions. My Chromebook will still fit into its sleeve for additional protection when its in my bag. My only slight reservation about this product is that it is quite expensive, but I do feel that in this instance at least, you do get what you pay for. An excellent addition for your Samsung Chromebook.
