4.0 out of 5 stars however as Bluetooth headphones they are poor. The connection is the worst I have experienced, 18 Dec. 2016
I feel the need to point out what only a few reviews have mentioned. The sound is exceptional as been consistently pointed out., Hence the 4 stars, however as Bluetooth headphones they are poor. The connection is the worst I have experienced, including very cheap Bluetooth headphones. The connection drops not only in the next room inside the house but in the same room. There are strange dropouts regularly and it is enough to annoy. Disappointing

4.0 out of 5 stars Macbook Pro vs Chromebook, 18 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hi.

So I had a Macbook Pro. It was coming up to a refresh and I thought ' I don't really want to spend a £1000 on a new computer'. I'm getting old or more sensible, or both. Oh God.

So before I bought a Chromebook, I made myself use only the Chrome browser for a month, and nothing else on my Macbook.

This was odd because it did prove the point, I didn't use much else, but not only that, it simplified things and found myself avoiding things that I couldn't do in a browser.

So I bought an Asus C300 as an entry to the Chromebook world, used it for 4 weeks, realised it was almost perfect.... It was quick, it looked ok, it did most things I needed. It lacked one thing, a decent screen. To the degree it bothered me. A lot.

So I bought this, the Toshiba Chromebook 2, I nearly bought the Pixel and suspect I will, but this is fantastic.

The screen is brilliant and the keyboard and track-pad are superb. The screen is better than my Macbook Pro (2011), the keyboard definitely better than the Asus C300. While that was decent, this one, to my fingers is pretty close to the Macbook, the Asus just felt a bit too flexible.

Battery life is very good, about 7-8 hours, pretty heavy use. The Asus was a bit nuts here, it got almost 11 hours, I think because of the low res screen, swings and roundabouts...

This takes a 128GB SD card, which I have, with all my old iTunes music on, and movies, this works perfectly and plays straight from sd card.

It only has 16 GB of built in storage, its really strange but you don't use it! You get 100GB free storage for 2 years anyway from google in the Google drive Cloud so everything is backed up automatically as you write. You don't press save at all, its pretty cool.

There is a concern that Microsoft Office doesn't work with this, its a bit of a pointless concern. I'm not being rude. Google's apps will make sense of all the Microsoft docs and apple docs you receive.

Google Docs and Sheets are 'pretty much' fully compatible with Office docs

There are replacement on-line alternatives to Photoshop and other apps which work great, there does seem to be a Skype issue currently so that might be a deal breaker for you. The alternative is Hangouts, which works pretty well.

If you don't know, you can transfer all your music from iTunes, or anywhere easily to Google music play. Its a free service and works very well.

To summarise, I don't miss my Macbook at all, this is truly superb for £260.

There are limitations to Chromebooks but I really don't see any of them affecting you unless you want to run specific software.

They are truly great value and I certainly recommend this one, I believe it is the best Chromebook out there at this point (Except Google's £800 one)

The only reason this is not 5 Stars is the slightly limited storage of 16GB, it probably 4 and 1/2 really.. its a great computer.

Hope this Helps

Edit; So I thought I'd mention that at Screen res 1920 x 1080 I find the text size a bit small, the picture of video is fantastic, however for general use I've settled on 1536 x 864, which still looks fantastic but allows the text to be a more usable size, play around and see what works for you..
