5.0 out of 5 stars Very low cost office machine alternative, 3 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Series 5 550 3G Chromebook - Silver (Sim card not included) (Personal Computers)
When costing this machine you need to take into account the 100G of Google Drive for 2 years, which has enabled me to avoid renewing my Dropbox account and immediately saved about 140 over the list price.
Others have reviewed this in depth, I want to make a few points:

1. Words with Lucidcharts and Codeplex so can be used for software development on smaller projects.
2. Remotes well into Windows 8 and 7 machines, so can be used for administration.
3. The DisplayPort output is excellent, with a DVI lead it gives very sharp rendition on my 27 inch monitor - and it is a two monitor setup, i.e. the screen extends onto the second monitor.
4. The machine feels as fast as a much larger, faster machine.
5. It is easy to install a SIM card. I wondered what would happen, but as soon as the Three SIM was installed, SMS messages started to popup in the lower right corner and guided me through the setup process. The SIM is for emergency use only, so the 3 PAYG is very useful here.

This is a small, cheap, plastic machine with a good screen, keyboard and touchpad and a 6 hour battery life. If it gets stolen or broken I shall be annoyed, but not nearly as annoyed as if it was an expensive thin and light laptop. It was bought to replace an Android tablet that was just too limited, it looks like it will end up replacing my large laptop.
