    Great for simple tasks

    |
    Posted .

    If you're looking for a computer that will let you play Minecraft, use Photoshop, and generally be an all-purpose computer, look elsewhere. However, if you want a very basic, minimal-distraction computer, this could be the one for you. I haven't had this one very long; I actually traded in a Windows-turned-Ubuntu laptop for this last night. That being said, so far I love it! I bought this to just do simple tasks like email, word processing, etc. I knew coming into it that I wasn't going to be able to do any of my design work; that's what I have my desktop and iPad for. But for a quick email, text, or some basic photo editing, this is a great little machine. You just have to know what you're getting into with the Chrome OS; it's very very basic and relies on the Chrome browser. There's no installing apps like a typical computer. If you're willing to sacrifice that, and are okay with finding a site that does what you need it to, this is great!

    High speed lappie with excellent sound

    Aesthetically pleasant,the lappie is functionally on form. I wish it was a pentium or quad-core in proportion to the size. But no complaints though.

    Perfect setup and size for light applications

    |
    Posted .

    I wanted an inexpensive 14-inch laptop to replace (for most but not all uses) my bulky and heavy 15.6" Dell Windows laptop purchased in 2013. Originally I had planned to purchase a Windows laptop with SSD and no optical drive, but after some research I quickly learned that for $200 you can do much better with a Chromebook than a Windows system. (I also have another 15.6" Windows laptop for work, 11" Acer Chromebook, 10" Samsung Tab, Fire 8 HD, and of course the cell phone - and each of these devices has its niche.) Overall I am very pleased with this unit. Performance is good for everyday light use such as web browsing, and the size is perfect for that use; I haven't used it for much else. Battery life seems acceptable, though it is a little concerning that currently the meter says 83% left with 6:17 remaining, whereas a little while ago it said 87% with 7:44 remaining and I have not changed the intensity of my activity on it between those readings. That is quite the exponential drop-off. But when battery life is critical (and when physical space is at a premium) I can use the smaller Chromebook or a different device. The screen looks nice for what it is. I have no problem with the resolution: I was coming from a larger-screen laptop with the same resolution, so this was actually an upgrade. The major caveat I will insert here is that the screen is NOT GLOSSY (BrightView) like the description says. Upon un-boxing this was a major disappointment and almost a dealbreaker for me. It seems difficult to find an inexpensive unit with a glossy screen these days. But most people seem to want the antiglare/matte finish now, and since I like the computer so much overall I decided to put up with it. A couple other caveats: The case is kind of flimsy, so I am not sure how this will hold up physically over time; and there is only an microSD rather than full-size SD card reader, which originally was not my preference, but I do own several microSDs and maybe it was time to phase out the full-size anyway. And it IS nice to have the card fit all the way into the unit, unlike the full-size SD that slides only halfway into my other Chromebook. SO, why did I rate this five-stars despite so many caveats? I don't know. I tend to be a negative writer, so take me with a grain of salt. But really, this is just a very pleasing device to use, I became comfortable with it immediately, and I think we will have some happy times together. So in the final analysis I have no real complaints. Buy it.

    Love it!!

    So glad I bought this laptop!! Almost bought an Acer but this one had a MicroSD slot. So for $50 more than I was going to pay for the Acer, I have expandable memory. For internet usage and online apps this thing is pretty quick and reliable. This computer is good looking with a nice screen size. The track pad is responsive and user friendly. All of the Google features and shortcuts are intuitive and easily accessable. This computer is well thought out and fun to use. The only downside I can think of is that the only way to print is through cloudprint. I have not found a way to print via WiFi. Other than that this computer is solid and useful. If you are looking for a basic setup for youtubing, email, documents, web browsing, this is your laptop. I don't regret buying it for a second.

    Great product for web surfers

    Posted .

    This product is perfect for my mother (or person) who just likes to browse the net and play FB games. Its does all the things her tablet does and more. And like a tablet, I'm not on the phone as tech support all day! There's minimal settings for her to disrupt. For under $300 it's was cheaper than a quality tablet and a lower end laptop. You're not going to do any better than this for a person with simple needs.

    My Third Chromebook

    |
    Posted .

    This is my third Chromebook. I love it. My first Chromebook was a small silver 11 inch, I kept it in a bag that I took back and forth to work and the screen cracked. My second Chromebook is just like this one. I've had that one since the beginning of 2015. In August of 2015 I took it to Geek Squad to have them replace the battery at no charge, it was still under warranty. I don't pay for protection plans. I bought the third Chromebook because the second one wouldn't stay on without the power cord being plugged in. After about 2 years it was time to get another one. I prefer Chromebook over other computers because of the price and the portabilitywhat is that. This thing is really light, slim, and very portable. I am using the app Dictanote right now to pen this review. It is a speech recognition app so all you do is speak and it translates. I also use Dictanote to write my papers. Apps can be downloaded easily from the Google Play Store on this device. It doesn't get bugs, it doesn't get viruses. I am a graduate student and the Chromebook works for all of my needs.

    Unique HP Chromebook

    I ordered late at night and received my HP Chromebook the following day (less than 2 days)! I shopped for a long time for a laptop with a lot of RAM and storage. I was very pleased with the price, and I never saw a HP Chromebook like mine in stores or online. It is blue inside and white on the outside.It has a large screen for watching Netflix.I love it !!!!!!

    My wife preferred using Chrome over any other browser. She uses her laptop primarily for email and web surfing, with some word processing. With its wireless capability and solid-state hard drive, the HP Chromebook satisfied her needs and requirements perfectly!

    Excellent Worry-free Computer

    |
    Posted .

    i bought this computer to replace an HP Stream SSD drive computer which was unable to install those ever pesty Windows updates due to storage restraints. I love how the Chrome OS automatically updates its software without a bother. The only sacrifice, which proves to be a blessing, is the inability to run Microsoft Office software on the Chromebook. Using Google Drive, Google Docs, Sheets, etc. has proven to be a much more satisfactory experience anyway. I believe it to be a much more user-friendly office program than Microsoft anyway, and I'm glad to abandon anything Windows due to the security vulnerabilities and constant, bothersome updates. This computer is fast and responsive. It boots up and shuts down immediately. Nearly all my online needs are well met: Netflix and Prime Video play flawlessly and stream without buffering, even when connected through my T-Mobile hotspot. Bottom line: Once you've tried Chrome(book), you'll never go back. Price, performance and productivity are all well achieved by this great computer for under $200.

    Perfect first laptop computer

    Perfect computer for our 10 year old. She can surf the web, do homework, and parental controls are easy to set up. More than one account can be added so the parent can sign on as administrator. The price was was also fantastic, and since everything is web-based there are no software updates to keep track of.

    Light in size and easy to take with you to class or on a trip. It does very well in transferring documents quickly thru online for my real estate work without the big price tag. Loved it so much bought one for my hubby also a year later.

    Perfect size

    Posted .

    This was brought mostly for work purposes for a friend. Primary is used for spreadsheets and emails, so it does the trick. Speed is good and the size is a plus. It's not to big and not to small. Only thing that makes me crazy is the google key is where the caps key usually is and it slows me down when using it.
