5.0 out of 5 stars Samsung Series 5 WI-FI Chromebook, 27 Nov. 2011
By 
This review is from: Samsung Series 5 Wi-Fi Chromebook (Titan Silver) (Personal Computers)
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.
