    The pre-Black Friday pricing on this Chromebook is certainly appealing, particularly from a well-respected electronics manufacturer like Samsung. However, Best Buy website has presented conflicting information on what you are actually buying. This review is purely to provide information regarding that, as this product will not be opened and fired up until Christmas at our house. The high level product categorization is: Samsung - 11.6" Chromebook - Intel Atom x5 - 2GB Memory - 16GB eMMC Flash Memory - Night Charcoal (notice no mention of "Chromebook 3") A device with those specifications listed on the packaging are indeed what I received from In-Store pickup today, and was also listed as Chromebook 3. However, the detailed product description lists this as Chromebook 3 with Celeron N3060. Here's where it gets confusing, and why... Auto Update Expiration Date (where Google will continue providing support to the device). Printed on the cardboard box from Samsung, it states "This product will continue to receive automatic updates until June 2021." However, the Chrome OS website states that Chromebook 3 will receive support through June 2022. I am not stating which support date is correct, but this is something you should consider when purchasing a product with conflicting marketing information. For the price I paid and the fact I am giving it to a 7 year old who's going to get a school provided Chromebook in August of 2021 anyway? It's somewhat irrelevant to me. But if you are hoping for longer term support from a device, I recommend enhanced due diligence so you understand what you are buying.

    I bought this laptop after my dell finally died and I have to say it’s way better. I don’t know why it has any bad reviews it works great. It’s lightweight and compact. Super fast and I can do a multitude of things at a time. Sound quality is pretty loud, and I love the apps you can download onto your home screen. It also soft shut downs itself when you’re inactive and charges fully within the hour

    I thought Best Buy had made a typo listing this Samsung Chromebook 3 as coming with an Atom X5 E8000 CPU (actually it’s a micro-motherboard “System on Chip”, much more integrated than Old Skool CPU motherboards). My 3 purchased last year with 4gb/32gb came with an N3060 Celeron. Now, the low-end Celeron series like that N3060 are really just Atoms allowed to run faster (and hotter), they actually have same processor “architecture” as release-date matching Atom-series SOC’s like this X5 E8000. In this case, my new Samsung Chromebook 3 is, in fact, running on an Atom vs. last year’s running the N3060, so it runs slower, but guess what, it is as fast as last years maybe faster because the Atom E8000 has 4 cores but the N3060 only 2 cores. It’s definitely faster than my low-end N3060 Windows 10 “Win-books”, So. This makes a great browsing and typing tool. I can work on a Google Doc word processing document in one tab and easily switch to background tabs for research. I haven’t loaded more than 10 tabs, and I don’f play music on YouTube etc. in the background - I manage my processor load to leave resources free for the real work (also uninstalled the Android support in Settings, and turned off Google Assistant). Caution: the Google Chromebook program is under a lot of criticism for early expiration dates for brand new computers - my $89-on-sale Samsung Chromebook 3 had a bleak note on its 3-months old carton declaring there would be no updates after June 2021 (yes the manufacture date on my unit’s carton was only 3 months ago). This expiration date was extended last week to June 2022. That’s still short, and either Google will be exposing a lot of users to hacking after that, or creating a lot of e-waste, so I and others are hoping for support at least a long as Windows gets. Oh - an internet website recently destructively drop-tested 10 different Chromebook models and this inexpensive Samsung was one of two that survived.

    I never even considered a Chromebook or anything like a tablet/notebook. I had been shopping around for a new laptop to use mainly for job search, resume writing and just general internet surfing. When I saw the price for this during all the hype with holiday shopping/deals at 4:00 am while checking the time on my iPhone, I bought it without knowing anything about it! So far I have been very happy with it. I have been using it a lot to attend online meetings. I've just started figuring out the whole Chrome concept, with Google and all the options available. I like its portability, lightweight and slim design. The only downfall I have really run into is when I don't have wifi near me and I want to use it. I use an iPhone and haven't figured out all the technical stuff to connect to my hot spot. Over all I'm excited to have it!

    Went to the Everett Best Buy to pick up a few things for gifts. I been to this store many times along with the Lynnwood and Northgate stores. The Everett store the workers are so friendly and helpful. They go out of their way to make sure I get the things I need. Out of all the Best Buy’s I been to, The Everett store is the best around.

    This is a great first computer for a fourth grader especially if they are using a Chromebook at school. It has served my child well and since they use them in school there was no learning curve. Overall great economical laptop.

    Great product for person who has small project to complete. Light weight and charge lasts a long time. Each user can have separate user name and password making each user separate. Just sign off and next person can’t use your settings or see your search. Each user must have gmail account which is easy to set up.

    This was on a great black Friday sale so I bought it for my 9 year old for Christmas. It works perfectly for him. It’s small enough to take along to grandmas house or road trips. Netflix, Roblox, and Youtube are his favorite things to do and this works great for him.

    Needed an inexpensive and more cost effective way to stream websites to the TV since it's an older model and does not have certain apps available for download. This fit the bill and was on sale for Black Friday to boot! Does what we need it to do & it didn't break the bank.
