    Excellent the low review above is incorrect

    Posted .

    I don't ever post reviews but had to chime in. The above terrible review is incorrect. You can install Android apps and there is no issue coming out of standby. His issues are isolated and he should return or replace. This Chromebook is premium and the best I've owned by far.the display is brilliant. You I'll not regret.

    Chromebook and 12" Android Tablet all in one!

    |
    Posted .

    I traded in my Laptop for credit towards my Samsung Chromebook Plus purchase. I also sold my Android Tablet after having the SCP for a couple days. A must for me, is it runs Android's Apps as well as my Android Tablets/Phones. Since Android Apps are optimized for the ARM processors, the Plus will run Android Apps (I play Clash of Clans and use KODI) better than Intel based Chromebooks, it's a trade off as they can handle ChromeOS better, but it is no slouch at ChromeOS. I really enjoy my SCP. I rarely if ever use my Desktop PC any more. It's great for keeping in touch on social media, watching and interacting with live streams. Fantastic "2nd" screen during TV shows.. IMHO you'll love it. Forget all this talk about people saying the keyboard and trackpad are subpar or lacking. There is a learning curve on the backspace, only because people are used to typing sloppy because it's usually a double sized key. I've compared the keyboard with other Chromebooks and I prefer it. The backlit is more a gimmick but I see its usefulness late night or early morning typing in bed, dark room. But I prefer the battery life. The trackpad is as good as any albeit smaller. The clicks work fine. Palm rejection sometimes fails, but it happens on every trackpad I've used. I particularly love using mine with my Choetech Multi-port USB Type-C hub. Everything, HDMI, USB-C PD pass-through charges and anything I plug into the full size USB just works. Turn off the display or close it, and it switches to "docked" mode. Connected to HDMI it will extend the desktop or you can switch to mirror mode. As a 12" tablet, it works fantastic too! I didn't even mention how useful the pen is for navigating the screen when your fingers are dirty.

    Great purchase.

    Let me just say this is my first google chromebook. I really didn't know much about them. I'm a desktop user (for the power) and I had a Samsung 12.2 inch tablet that I used for mobility. The tablet finally gave out, and after A LOT of research I ended up with this. If you're truly on the fence, consider this: you can spend 500$ on a regular laptop and be disappointed, or you can spend 500$ on a high-end google chromebook and be impressed. I have no idea what chromebook users did before Android apps were added. Running these on soley google chrome browser extensions seems like a terrible fate, and additonally, having too many extensions will slow down your browser. The android apps offer these devices a perfect balance, and give you the accessibility offered with a tablet with a sense of operating a laptop. You can do whatever you need to do with this...EXCEPT run office apps locally. Word, etc, would have to be run online from their website at this point. You do have alternatives, like google spreadsheet and so on, but I didn't want these - too much trouble to adapt their platforms. I found a GREAT "middle-man" for this is an android app called "Office Suite pro." You will find it in the play store for $15.00 and works just as well as office apps - and perhaps even better. You can save these documents in Onedrive as well, and they will appear as word documents to everyone else. You will also receive $20.00 to use in the playstore as soon as you buy this, so consider that addition free.

    My Go To Laptop/Tablet

    |
    Posted .

    I was looking to replace an old 16GB Samsung Galaxy Tab running Android that was no longer getting updates. I looked at the newer mid-high end tablets, mainly from Samsung and Apple, and was surprised to see how expensive they were especially for 10"+ screen with more than 16GB storage. I ideally wanted something with stylus support and that limited my options. I decided on a Chromebook since they run Android apps. To my surprise, the Chromebook Plus runs Android apps well, from games to social media to video, I haven't had a problem with any app yet. On top of that, you get the great Chrome browser desktop experience, microSD slot for added storage, AND a stylus that tucks in to the device. The only downside is that it doesn't have as good of battery life as a tablet if you keep the Chromebook in standby mode (lid closed) vs just turning it off. It boots up quick, so powering it off is not an issue, but the Android apps tend to load a little slower right after boot vs. if the Chromebook has already been booted up. Even though the specs aren't that impressive, Google and Samsung did a good job with the OS and apps using the fairly low end hardware and memory. If you're looking for something with a great desktop/browsing experience coupled with apps running on a big screen, this is a great choice for the price.

    A much better option than a tablet

    |
    Posted .

    This is my first chromebook and I am pleasantly surprised. For what I intend to use it for: emails, web surfing, and school work it seems to provide enough performance to accomplish those tasks. The aspect ratio of the screen is at first, odd. After using it for awhile, I've grown to appreciate it's size and clarity. The display is bright and sharp and very comfortable to look at. The included stylus resembles the S-pen from Samsung's line of Note devices and is more a novelty for me than a key tool. It does work well, and provides some interesting tools for interacting with the operating system. The ability to manipulate the position of the screen is an amazing feature. Being able to transition from laptop, tent, to tablet forms is a lot more useful than I had originally imagined. Coming for a mid-2012 Macbook Pro, the keyboard is definitely smaller and the trackpad isn't as smooth. However, the savings in weight is enough for me to overlook those minor issues. The inclusion of the app store is definitely a welcome addition, but there are issues that cause apps to crash randomly. As this function is still in beta, I was prepared for this and do not consider it as big an issue as it may seem. My main motivation for purchasing this product, was to avoid having to bring my laptop and additional tablet with me on a deployment. So far, it is working out well and I'm very pleased with this purchase.

    Had to return

    |
    Posted .

    1. Only after a day of owning it, the screen would randomly spaz out, clicking random spots on my screen and crazily scroll up and down like a computer gone mad..... all while constantly opening new tabs about every second. I could set it down, not even touch it and this would go on forever until I turned it off. This happened a few times a day and was the main reason I returned it. 2. The touchpad is pretty bad (or maybe just mine). For some reason it was such a challenge just to click and drag something. The cursor would either not click initially, or would stop working halfway through the drag. And I kept my device clean so it wasnt because it was dirty. 3. The outside scratches so easily. The is the most fragile piece of tech Ive ever had as far as resistance to scratching. 4. This is completely my fault but it doesnt have a regular USB port. I use a regular flash drive for my colleges computers. I guess there is a solution however, just get a Type C to Type B adapter. 5. The backspace key is infuriating. Its so small compared to every other keyboard Ive ever used, I would accidentally click the "+/=" key 90% of the time (cause thats usually where the backspace key is). I dont know, maybe you could get used to it. I know I just bashed it but of course there are Pros too.. 1. Beautiful screen 2. Has the google play store which I loved 3. Works great in tablet mode 4. Samsung pen works well 5. Battery Life is fantastic 6. Thin and lightweight I felt kinda sad returning it because I wanted to love it. But I just had too many issues. Hopefully the pro version will be more refined.

    Amazing laptop!

    Ive owned several Macbooks and PC Notebooks. Most of my usage is on my phone but there is times where a larger screen and physical keyboard are really nice to have. This laptop feels very premium, screen is razor sharp. Having usbc and a hideaway stylus is just a cherry on top. Of your usage is fairly normal most can use a Chromebook as there primary machine like me. One of the best laptops I've owned period!

    Very Nice Chromebook

    |
    Posted .

    This is my first Chromebook and so far I'm impressed. I've been a Windows owner forever and was looking for something different that was lightweight, fast, with long battery life. The Samsung Chromebook Plus does this just fine. It's also very versatile. I mostly use it as a laptop but it also does an excellent job as a tablet. The only drawback is keyboard isn't lighted but that really isn't that big of an issue as I'm sure that's why battery life is so good. Wi-Fi also has good connectivity in sensitive spots with weaker signals. For what I paid $369 after sale price of $419 and with student $50 coupon I feel this was a solid deal. Remember if you are use only to Windows and don't like change....do not buy this Chromebook. If you don't mind change and adapting....go for it.

    Great new product!

    Posted .

    I love this thing more than I thought I would. I had a Samsung Chromebook that was fairly old and was looking to get a new one. I held out for the app-friendly 2-1 version and debated whether to spend the extra money, but I'm glad I did. The screen is much clearer, and I am able to use it outside, although not a backlit screen. The screen is a little taller than my previous one, so it took a little getting used to, since I liked the size of my older one, but I like it, now. I don't use it as a tablet much, since I like typing on a keyboard, but it's nice to have the option to open it completely up and turn it around to set it on my counter while I'm cooking. I love how easy it is to do a screen cap with the stylus, also. I expect I will explore the apps and tablet usage more as I get used to it. I'm rarely without access to wi-fi, so this new version really does everything I need it to at much less the cost of a PC 2-1. The only thing that surprised me was that it does not have regular USB port. It's USB-C (2 of them). A quick search provided some easy converters so I could use the dongles and chargers I had, so it ended up being a non-issue. I did get a great deal with the trade-in of an old laptop, so I was happy with the price I ended up with. Full price was a little more than I wanted to spend, but now that I have it, it would have been worth it.

    One of the best Chromebooks available

    |
    Posted .

    After working with Chromebooks on a daily basis for the past three years, I can hands-down say this is the best Chromebook I've personally used. The CB+ is a delight to use - it's lightweight, fast, and best of all, easily convertible into a tablet. While Chromebooks are certainly growing in popularity, and as a result we're starting to see more premium offerings, the CB+ offers the premium experience at a very reasonable price. True, it doesn't run Windows or Mac applications. However, the new Android compatibility is a huge step forward in the platform. The additional active stylus is also a treat; this is now basically a Microsoft Surface at 1/3 the price, as long as you don't need native Windows apps. Pros: Great display (3:2 aspect ratio is wonderful on this size device) Convertible design and Android apps Active stylus included Premium look and feel Reasonable price (for a laptop; it's an expensive Chromebook though) Cons Very thin, which could be a pro or a con depending on use Keyboard is lackluster Only has USB C ports; had to buy an adapter to convert USB C to A The hinges seem solid, but only time will tell with use Overall, I'm very pleased. So much so that I've almost convinced my wife to buy one when she needs a new laptop. Hmm...$450 CB+ or $1500 MacBook....

    Great slim laptop replacement (with limitations)

    |
    Posted .

    Before buying, it is important to understand what your requirements are for a laptop. I have a custom built desktop PC that I use for advanced tasks, movie transcoding, photo editing, and gaming. However, I wanted a slim laptop to take with me on business trips. I can't really do anything personal on my work laptop, so I wanted something slim and light weight since I will have two devices with me while travelling. The chromebook plus is quick enough for my use. I mostly use Android apps on it. It has been pretty good as a productivity device for me so far. I primarily use it for Microsoft OneNote to take notes. The USB C charging is great since I can use the same charger for phone and laptop. The stylus works well enough. I had a Surface Pro before, so I am used to using a stylus on a laptop. The beta enables the power button to act like it should to put the chromebook to sleep. This will likely be in the stable version soon. It is a great addition and makes it operate more like you would expect. The screen is AMAZING! The battery life has been good with 7-10 hours depending on brightness. The keyboard is good once you get used to the small backspace. It only took me a day to get used to it. My main complaint is that Android apps cant write to the microSD card yet. Once this is enabled, the chromebook will be perfect for me.

    Wonderful Tablet Replacement

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased the Samsung Chromebook Plus as a replacement for my wife's damaged Samsung Pro 12.2 tablet. The Cyber Monday pricing pushed me to act. It arrived as an early Christmas surprise and has been used daily ever since... My wife is a heavy computer and Facebook user. As a very fast touch typist I was used to watching her poke at the on-screen android tablet keyboard and thought the Chromebook would be a welcome change. The various 2-in-1 features of the Chromebook Plus fall readily to hand and with little to no ramp-up time she easily uses the hardware and software keyboards, the pen and other features specific to the Samsung Chromebook Plus. One other thing to mention is just how fast this thing is... Wow... I would recommend this product to anyone looking to replace a tablet or a windows based notebook (where windows specific programs are not an issue). I use a Windows (7) desktop, a 10" tablet and a linux laptop. I often envy the various features of the Chromebook Plus and just might have to look into one for myself this next year...

    The best Chromebook so far!

    |
    Posted .

    This is my fourth Chromebook and I've enjoyed all of them. But this is the best one by far. It's really fast, compared to the others, and is the first one that I can use as a full-time replacement for my Windows & Mac machines. The Chrome OS has come a long way -- access to Android Apps is just the icing on the cake -- and this one is a fine example of that progress. Now that I can access my Dropbox files as part of the file system I don't ever need anything else for my day-to-day computing. Samsung got this one right and I highly recommend it. ps. The keyboard and touchpad are better than most full-size laptops I have ever used. The display is remarkable and a long way removed from my earlier Chromebook devices. Battery life is great - up to eight hours.

    Beautiful Chromebook

    Posted .

    It does everything I need without slowing down. Beautiful device and screen. Nice rounded edges feels great in your hands. Only thing I don't really like are the rubber feet, they are more like plastic so they do not grip very well. You could easily put some rubber sticker pads over them if you needed to, not worth taking a star away. The hardware isn't really anything special but I didn't get it for the hardware really( you can get the same or better internal hardware for half the price, but it wont look or feel anything like this sexy beast). I wanted a Chromebook that felt great in my hands and was pleasurable to look at for hours at a time. The display compared to my wife's Asus flip 2 is just way more vibrant and natural. The display is probably the #1 reason I bought this, just BEAUTIFUL!!!. And the size is perfect for me. The 10 inch was just too small for me and any any bigger is just getting too big for what I wanted. Google apps work fine. I really got this for the aesthetics. love the rounded edges. And a touch screen is a must for me. Tablet mode is nice sometimes as well.

    Great chromebook!

    |
    Posted .

    This is a fantastic product. My daughter uses it every day to watch movies and tv, do school work or email friends and play games. It's definitely an upgrade over the previous toshiba plastic chromebook she had, which still works, but was falling appart after 2 years of heavy use. Screen quality is on par with an iPad, and I feel this feature alone is worth the additional cost over other chrome books, it's really bright and crisp. It also offers a solid aluminum case, and pen tech and plays all the android games. Build and feel is better than most other chrome books, but isn't quite the solid build or feel of an apple iPad or MacBook, but cost is much less than a MacBook and the fact that it can even be compared at half the cost says something. It's light too...The keyboard is probably the weakest point but you get used to it. Overall I recommend for anyone who wants to email, watch moves, or write papers, which covers most students. I feel the only drawback is that chromebooks in general are not good for video editing. I have another computer for my daughter to use for this purpose. Overall I highly recommend this product.

    Nice small and light laptop

    |
    Posted .

    I've used Macs for over a decade, mostly recently a 2012 MacBook Pro. I wanted something with a better and less reflective screen but not the high cost of a new MacBook Pro. Pros: outstanding display, fast boot, very light, nice looking laptop, acceptable keyboard, Chrome OS is not as limiting as one may think, reasonably fast if you remember to log-out occasionally (once a day or every two days). Cons: WiFi reception is okay but much weaker than my MacBook, microSD card reader appears to be upside down, it "ate" a card that I inserted - i.e., it went all the way into the machine and did not come back out and is now lost somewhere in there. In bright light I can now see the contacts are on the upside of the card insertion slot. I would never have thought to insert the card upside down. I haven't used the tablet function much. I was hoping it would be easier to mark up pdf's using the stylus but it the same as on my MacBook, even a little more difficult on the CB+. It's not this machine's fault, there needs to be more software which takes advantage of a touch interface to fix that. Basic tablet functions, like reading a newspaper, seem to be fine.

    Perfect for my use

    Posted .

    I researched many small laptops & decided a chromebook would best fit my simple needs ie: most of what I do is internet based vs off-line, altho you can do a lot with this without the internet. It actually has many more functions than I thought which I'm having fun learning. I am not tech-savvy so I appreciated the free in-store session with geek squad to get me set up. This holds a charge well & recharges super-fast. All my Iphone photos are set up to also go to GooglePhoto. The track pad works fine but I'm used to a mouse, so I got a bluetooth one to avoid a dongle. I am so glad that coffee spilled all over my prior piece of junk and this baby came along at just the right time!
