      Answer

      No, it does not. With other Chromebooks that have Android app support, you can install MS Office for Android, but the MS Office apps are showing as not compatible in Google Play on this device. Hopefully Google, Microsoft and Samsung get this worked out.

        Answer

        using google docs, sheets and gmail you can work offline effectively. Many of the android apps that are available on this machine also work offline. I find that I can do everything that I do on a pc with the exception of running the full Quicken application.

          I have been scouring the internet for more info about the stylus and writing and what I do know is that it has palm rejection. (Not having it would have been a deal breaker!)

            Answer

            No it does not. If you want a backlit keyboard on a Chromebook around this price, look into the Asus C302CA. For the price, I would say Newegg or B&H Photo is best bet sicne for $499 they offer the Intel Core m3 6Y30 processor which is quite a bit faster than the included ARM processor on this Samsung Chromebook Plus, and even the Asus C302CA for $499 listed here at Best Buy with the Pentium chip.

              If you only want to use Google Docs, this is great. For MS Office, you can try office 365. Much cheaper than full version.

                Answer

                ok you should be able to connect and use your printer wirelessly as you would a laptop, smart phone, and other mobile devices. i only know of HP having an actual app that allows for easy scanning, and printing. you will just have to make sure you are on the same bandwidth since the chrome + has capabilities for both 2.4ghz and 5.ghz. and most wifi printers only use the 2.4ghz. as for microsoft office you can download it via the android play store there is an android version it may cost money unless you either have subscribed or have a keycode of a purchased copy. other options is hancom which is samsungs version of microsoft office. i dont know if it has all the bells and wistles as MO does, but it is the same thing. the note pro 12.2 i had had hancom installed free with the tablet. hopefully my information was helpful.
