Lets be honest, what I really want is a touch screen convertible laptop/tablet... who doesn't? But look at the prices. I don't want to buy a slow machine just because it's got a touch screen. So I decided to wait for a while, till the prices came down and the Amazon Warehouse Deals started to properly kick in.

Then my net book packed up and died, and I needed something new, just for six to nine months whilst the machines that I really want came out at a reasonable and affordable price. So I also wanted something cheap, because I didn't intend to use it for long.

So I read up, and this thing had some good reviews and 100gb drive storage for two years thrown in. As I'd been planning to upgrade my cloud storage facilities anyway this was the killer selling point for me. I could offset the cost of the chromebook against what I was going to pay anyway for the drive space!

And I would get to play with a new OS (Yes, I am a sad pathetic nerd)

Then it came. And I was VERY impressed.

The machine itself is well built and reasonably light.

The keyboard took a little bit of getting used to. But I'm touch typing this review now on it, at my normal speed, and in comfort, on my lap in an easy chair whilst watching the telly.

It switches on really fast.

I don't have to muck around with security packages.

They've updated the operating system a couple of times since I bought it. All I had to do was switch the machine off and on, and I was back browsing within the minute. The one downside to this, is that I now get REALLY impatient when my PC upgrades itself.

Talking about the PC. I really like the remote desk top. Works really well.

Content is, of course, king.

I wouldn't normally write a review but as the only other one on here gives the Chromebook one star I felt compelled to add my own experience.
I wanted something small but functional to replace a Windows 7 laptop. I had never had a Chromebook before, but understood the limitations (ie not being able to install Word/Excel etc) and was already a user of gmail and had started to use Google Docs etc. I also liked the idea of fast boot up times, and that there would be no requirement to have virus protection. I've had a Mac Mini as my home computer for years now with no issues ever, so hoped this google OS would provide similar reliability.
So I took the plunge.
I would have gone for the little Samsung (this Acer was not on the market when I first wanted the Chromebook), but the local John Lewis store (who offer 2 year warranties) were out of stock. So I waited until they had more, and then just before they got new stock, I saw this Acer was released. I was swayed by the 320gb hard drive, as the Samsung's is only 16gb. The Acer is slightly slower to boot, but still vastly quicker than a Windows laptop. And the Acer is cheaper than the Samsung. Anyway I went for it, buying it through Amazon, having watched a few early reviews on youtube.
When the Acer arrived, it was a pleasant experience unpacking the Amazon box, then the smaller Acer box. Inside the dinky little computer was found- a kind of gunmetal grey colour. I remember it just started up when I lifted the screen. I just followed the instructions and logged on to my home network and my gmail account, and I was off. The screen looked bright and clear, 11.6 inches in size, just like the macbook air. I followed some quick training on using the trackpad.
I've found it completely reliable, and very enjoyable to use.

I bought this machine for my wife to use, as a replacement for her ailing Compaq laptop.

She's very pleased with it and I, also, am impressed. But, boy, what a lot of squit is written about this Cloud printing nonsense.

I have an HP5560 wireless printer, which took just minutes to set up for use with the aforementioned, but now pretty much useless, Compaq. I also set it up in no time at all to run with my own Toshiba laptop.

But it won't (can't) work with the Chromebook. Oh no, for that I need a Cloud enabled printer, or failing that I can run it through a Windows, Mac or Linux laptop. But what if you haven't got one of those either? (my wifes' one remember, is now bust).

So if she wants to print e-mails etc., unless we go out and buy yet another piece of kit - i.e. a Cloud enabled printer, then it seems she's out of luck.

So, although I have no hesitation in saying that the Chromebook is a good little machine, I would also say think very carefully about buying one if you feel you might want to print anything from it.

Firstly you must be aware of what you are buying, this is a Chromebook, its not a Windows laptop, its not a Macbook, it will NOT run any windows or other OS applications, it is not iOS and it is NOT Android either. Also don't expect to plug in bluetooth adapters or other hardware (except mices and keyboards) and have them work, they likely won't.

Chromebooks pretty much run the Chrome browser that you can download for your bigger desktop computer (PC or Mac) and thats all.

Now that might sound like a major limitation but that is where you would be wrong.

Its amazing what you can do in a web browser window these days, from full on word-processing and spreadsheets, to even graphics editing (Photoshop style) with Chrome Apps such as Pixlr. There is a world of apps out there, go download the Chrome browser and check out the apps and the extensions, all can be used on your Chromebook.

Now, there are those that will whinge that it doesn't play MKV or AVI files, but it does play MP4/M4V files which the majority of the world is now using, its a case of knowing what this machine does and realising that it IS a compromise of price over function.

As far as I am concerned I have a great looking, fast running, no-maintenance, secure, virus-free laptop for a ridiculously low price. I have tons of movies stored on the 320Gb hard drive for when its out of earshot of Wifi, all of my other files are on Google Drive, you get 2 years (YES you heard me right) with 100GB of space...and when that 2 years is up and if you CHOOSE not to pay for Google Drive storage your files DO NOT disappear like some suggest...you just cannot add any MORE to the files you currently have. that seems very fair to me.

Music, load up to 20,000 tracks into Google Music...
