Product Description

The (Always) New Computer

Chromebooks are fast to use, and don't slow down over time. They have built-in security, so you're protected against viruses and malware. They come with apps for all your everyday needs, and keep your files safely backed up on the cloud. And with free, automatic updates, your Chromebook keeps getting better and better.

Automatic Updates

Chromebooks automatically update themselves: all of your apps stay up-to-date,and you get the latest version of the operating system without having to think about it.

No Blue Screen

Chromebooks are built to get technology out of the way, so you won't see any more blue screens. Say goodbye to installing patches as well.

Built-in Virus Protection

There's no need to install anti-virus software, as Chromebooks are designed to defend against the ongoing threat of malware and viruses.

Get Going In Less Than 1 Second

Get to the things you need quickly and easily. Chromebooks boot up in seconds, and use the latest web technology to load web pages with blazing speed. Access all your favourite apps instantly in just one click. Unlike traditional computers, your Chromebook always stays as fast as the day you first got it.

  • Fast Booting - The world's fastest booting Chromebook starts up in just 7 seconds.
  • Fast Start - It wakes from sleep in 1 second. There's no need to press power button - simply open the lid and you're ready to go!
Be More Productive

Now you can multitask with ease and get even more done. A powerful Intel Sandy Bridge Dual Core processor and 4 GB RAM* ensure you can simultaneously open twice as many browser windows as Intel Atom based Chromebooks.

* Factory option

  • Dual Core Processor - You can enjoy faster web browsing, office tasks and music or video chat without any waiting.
  • 16GB SSD - Get the information you need when you need it. A Solid State Drive (SSD) provides significantly faster start up and data access times compared to a hard drive.
Do Everyday Things. Do Amazing Things.

Go straight online to creating, sharing and enjoying. Chromebooks come with built-in apps for editing photos, creating documents and presentations, and video chat, so you can get everyday tasks done right out of the box.

Collaborate on Documents

Create documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and drawings with apps like Google Docs, Zoho and SlideRocket. With productivity apps, you can collaborate in real-time with others, access your documents from any computer, and have your files backed up automatically. Access other everyday files using the built-in PDF and document viewer.

Thousands of Apps

You can explore thousands of apps in the Chrome Web Store. Offline apps like Gmail keep you productive even when you're not connected to the web.

Sync your Stuff

Files, bookmarks, and apps that you change on your Chromebook instantly update on your other devices running the Chrome browser.

Full-sized keyboard designed for Chrome

The keyboard is optimised for Chrome with a dedicated search key, a row of web-enabled keys, and a comfortable, full-size layout that doesn't cramp your fingers, so you can get more done.

Oversized, multi-touch clickpad

You can enjoy better control using a large multi-touch clickpad. With a glass coating and image sensor it provides a stylish and convenient way to use your Chromebook.

Take it everywhere

With up to 6 hours* of battery life, weighing just over 3.02 pounds(1.37kg), and less than 0.83”(21.1mm) thick, the Samsung Chromebook Series 5 550 goes wherever you go.

* Battery life based on Google Scenario-PowerLoadTest.

Thought that this would be an inexpensive & child friendly alternative two my Windows laptop but it's turned out to be a complete replacement. Yes, you have to get used to working in the cloud, but it's simply fantastic - I'm really pleased with the speed, flexibility, lightness and battery life. It's great!

i ordered this last week because i really wanted something that i could use on the go, that wasn't my phone and i really like a keyboard, i wanted something nice and fast because i don't like waiting for things to load.

the set up was super simple, took just a few minutes and i was away. It comes with a 3gb 3g sim but i didnt find this until after i had gone out and signed up for a 12 month 3g mobile broadband sim with 3, though i get more data with this anyway so i will use the free sim when i get to the end of my allowance!

obviously, what you can do without the net is very limited, essentially making this a very expensive paperweight without the net, but when you have the net, it works like a dream.

to get from pressing the button to actually being online and your previous pages loaded realistically takes around 15 seconds, rather than 8/10 but that includes signing in, connecting to 3g and loading the pages that you were already on so i am very impressed with this. shutting it down takes literally 4 seconds, so this is really useful when you are out and about and only have a few minutes with which to do something.

one flaw i found in this is that i briefly disabled 3g and then found that i could not reenable it. i had to go into developer mode and delete local data in order to fix it, i hope updates will solve this as in seems very silly!

the machine has a nice screen, is fairly light and can fit into the handbag i usually take places with me so this really fits into my life.

I have no idea if these things will catch on, but for now i am very impressed and if it doesnt slow down as they say it won't, i will continue to be impressed by this.

I have a fairly new Dell laptop, and recently bought this Chromebook. It's a revelation ... it's so fast to start and has none of the hang ups and delays while stuff updates in the background like my Windows machine.

I use the Chromebook whenever I want to quickly go on the web, which now includes using spreadsheets etc. as I've been migrating them over to Google docs format (this I have to do one at a time as I often need to make a tweak - it's automatic but not 100% foolproof).

I only use my laptop now for photographs - saving to hard drive and backing up to external drives and the cloud (through Google Picasa). Once there's an app to let me do this reliably (I use Windows SyncToy), it'll be goodbye Windows. I could already do this manually, but I'm very cautious as I have thousands of photos.

I now find it irritating whenever I have to return to my Windows machine. Really irritating. You cannot believe how irritating. Unless you too buy one of these.

Chromebook looks like a laptop but it's not a laptop nor is it a netbook. You can't download anything on this device, moreover you can't do much with this device unless you have an internet connection. The Chromebook is designed for optimal surfing for those who don't like tablets, touching screens, and prefer a keyboard to type on than a glass surface.

Because everything about this device's software is online, there are no programmes that need to be updated, no patches that need to be downloaded, no upgrades, no nothing. It's straight up internet. Opening it up, it starts automatically, in a moment you see the Chrome logo, then the log-in page (you need a Gmail account and a live internet connection), then once logged in the Chrome browser opens and you're online. Total time from lifting the lid to browsing the web - 7 seconds. Maybe even less.

That's basically what sold me on this device. The incredibly fast boot time from cold machine to browsing the net. My Vaio laptop takes around 5/6 minutes to fully load up Windows 7 and the multitude of programs that need to start up with the machine. Then there are updates that need to be downloaded and installed and the machine re-started... it's a hassle. This isn't that bad if I'm going to be using it for a while but if I just want to do a couple of things - check mail/weather/cinema listings/whatever - and then log off, it's annoying. With Chromebook you're on and off in under a minute.

But it's no laptop substitute entirely - as you can't download anything, that means no iTunes. Anything downloadable is off the table. The plus side is no virus can download onto your Chromebook either. It's basically virus-proof. Also if I need to use Microsoft Word, Excel or Powerpoint, I use my laptop rather than Google Drive.

Our company bought a Chromebook to see if it was suitable for replacing some of our laptops. The quality of the Chromebook is fantastic. The screen is clear and bright, it is light but sturdy, has an incredible battery life, USB ports, camera, good speakers, external monitor connector, SD card slot, wired and wireless (both 3G and Wifi) internet. Very complete. However, I could not test the external monitor as I could not find a shop which had the correct interface cable to connect to my monitor. Though the manual is minimal, as a Google Apps user I could work immediately with it. It starts up in a few seconds and all the Google Apps tools work fine right out of the box. After surfing the net for some time I found out that some sites do not work correctly. For example, I could not get Silverlight and Java to work. Also, you cannot install common software like Spotify which is a bit of a miss when you are on the road. My general opinion about this product is that it is about half way there. It is a high quality product and if you only want to use it for your e-mails, Calendar, docs and some casual surfing it works fine. But if you want to do more it lacks a bit. However, when more apps for Chrome become available, the Chromebook will become more capable automatically. Combined with the heavy price tag I would currently give it a 3 star ranking.
