    Wow, I'm Impressed!

    |
    Posted .

    I was hesitant to purchase a Chromebook. I've read some negative reviews in the past about other earlier models, which made me nervous. But after a few words with the Geek Squad in store, it turns out that this Chromebook was in fact perfect for me. I primarily use my machine for word processing, email, and web surfing. So no need for heavy computing power. This machine does all of that perfectly. And the display! Wow, what an amazing screen at this price point. The machine is sleek, light and looks great, and the 2in1 function with the built in pen is really cool. Give this one a chance. Absolutely no buyers remorse after a few weeks of heavy use.

    Great device when working

    |
    Posted .

    This a mixed review. This is not my first Chromebook, and I was excited to replace my aging Samsung CB with this new Plus model to be able to run apps and have a touch screen. I love it, and it does everything I need it to, as I mainly use it as an internet device and am fine with cloud storage. However, within a couple of months of purchase, I started experiencing the phantom problems others have described, where it would randomly open and close screens, and I could not even shut down without using the stylus to access the shut down mode. It was intermittent and would go for weeks without doing it, so I just lived with it. Now, 9 months into ownership, the screen went completely dead. I made sure it was fully charged and let it sit overnight without accessing it, but it is now a boat anchor. Since it's within the one year mark, I will take it back to Best Buy and see if they will assist me in returning it to Samsung for a repair or a replacement. It's a 5 start product when it works. I think I was an early purchaser and there was definitely an issue with the early manufactured models. I still recommend this product, but would also recommend returning it or sending it back to Samsung for a warranty repair at the first sign of trouble.

    Great replacement for my tablet

    |
    Posted .

    I have an aging android tablet that I needed to replace. I have always know about chromebooks, but didnt want one initially because they were originally suppose to be lightweight web browser only OS. About a year ago Google made android apps available on chromebooks and this Chromebook plus is the first to enable this feature. I love this little thing. It is lightweight, fast, the battery last a while, and aesthetically well made. The screen is nice and sharp and there is plenty of brightness available. The keyboard is a little small compared to a typical laptop, but it works very well for short term use. The speakers on this chromebook are pretty weak. You pretty much have to turn the volume up to near max in order to hear audio comfortably. The ability to transform into tablet mode also allow me to play touch enabled games very easily. Over all this is for people who do web browsing, game playing, video watching, and music listening with headphones or external speakers.

    I like it...really want to love it

    I was very excited when I heard about this was model coming. I did have a chromebook years ago and loved it but it was too "low end" for the time. Windows laptops are just frustrating, I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 in 1. Tons of features but it isn't as functional as it should be. The Chromebook Plus is awesome. Super mobile, very functional and works seamlessly. Like most reviews say, this was not built for the apps. Most of the apps I use on my phone do not work right on the Chromebook Plus. For me it's not a big deal. I run everything out of the Chrome browser anyways. Battery is great and again, just a very fluid machine. I buy new devices at least once a year. Looking forward to see what comes next! Still a great buy!

    I did a fair amount of research before purchasing a chrome book, and in all honesty, this was not my first choice. I tend to go with the 'top picks' for initial consideration and, as a result, had settled on a different brand and model. When I found out that my choice was only available through online retailers, I went to Best Buy just to see what else was available from that same manufacturer. There I had a very knowledgeable and professional salesperson who walked me through the choices without pushing one over the other. After seeing and trying the various models, the Samsung Plus was a clear favorite. It is a solid looking and feeling machine with a firm keyboard. The screen is beautifully clear and vibrant. This chrome book converts easily to a tablet and to a stand for viewing movies, and it comes with a built in touch pencil. It is responsive and works well with several tabs open at the same time. I purchased this to replace a laptop, and have been using it primarily for gmail, google sheets, and google docs. I don't miss my Mac at all. This is a good, solid, chromebook at a reasonable price. It gets the job done.

    Lightweight Chromebook

    |
    Posted .

    Wanting a new chromebook to replace my old hp chromebook and I thought about this Samsung one. It is really light weight and super compact. I don't think the pictures will justify how portable this unit is so you have to see it for yourself in person. It works like any other chromebook on the market but it is a little faster and is a 2-1 kinda deal. You can switch easily from the laptop phase into the tablet phase. Plus it also comes with a nice built in stylus to help with your drawings or note taking. With that being said, there are A LOT of android apps to help compliment your Samsung chromebook needs. If you're already invested in the Google ecosystem then you will really love using all of the Chromebook's features. Even if you just have a gmail you will still love it. The ONLY issue I hate about this is that it just comes with only 2 usb c slots. Just a measly 2... so I just have to carry a small usb hub to use if I need to add additional slots.

    Very Fast

    Posted .

    I bought this instead of the standard laptop and this functions well as both a tablet and laptop. The type C usb plugs are a thing to work around but most items I bought like mouse and all are blue tooth so no issues. I did have to factory reset once a few hours after opening it because it would not change to tablet mode now weeks later no issues. It turns on in secs and off. Connect is strong, downside is you cant connect to the internet with a cable but there are accessory's to fix that. The play store is not as vast as a regular phone but it is still being worked. Battery is decent I play games, watch videos and it last about 7-8.5 hours without charging. All in all, a good small sturdy laptop, love the metal frame. The camera is not as high def as I would like but still decent. If you are a gamer looking for steam you would need to install linex, so there are limits; for school or something above average this is good, for a true gamer trying steam or orgin I would stick with windows.

    Great chromebook but not a laptop Replacement

    |
    Posted .

    I am still unsure to the Chrome OS so I have the Samsung Plus a try. I must admit this device does tempt me to completely switch. If I am honest, I am very superficial because looks and feel alone makes me love this device. I am really impressed with how smooth it operates, using Tablet mode to read comics is an amazing experience, and the weight of it feels like a feather. Where I still don’t feel the Chrome OS because I am so used to Windows. The lack of sufficient space (32gb) is not enough to sell me on this. I am new to usb-c and having to get an adaptor to stick out just doesn’t feel right. Also it was somewhat awkward holding it in Tablet mode. I purchased a hard shell case which can cover the keyboard when using it this way. Overall, if you are new to the Chromebook experience, Samsung’s Plus and Pro models are a good starting point.

    Good for its purpose

    Posted .

    Wanted something to replace old Windows Millenium computer used for email, web activity and some word processing. This serves those purposes quite well. Like that I don't have to spend all that time and money on regular updating software and worrying about viruses. Very easy to set-up and use. While included software (word processing for example, is not as comprehensive as WORD, neither is it as complicated to use (and who really uses ALL of the features of that full-featured word-processor?). Quite satisfied with quality, features, and long-battery life.

    Great laptop for the price with minor drawbacks

    |
    Posted .

    First the positives: - Great Screen, seriously can't be matched outside of its upgrade Chromebook Pro model for less than $700 for an iPad Pro or better laptop. - Great Chrome Experience with frequent, fast, and painless OS updates and Chrome Syncing - Nice availability of Apps on Play store - Great durability and good quality feel - Good multi-tasking within Chrome tabs **but see cons about android apps - Stylus is GREAT - Awesome for travel with hinged screen and such to make it work where you want to use it Cons: - Sometimes android apps are buggy, but its gotten better over the months of updates I've received since getting the device. - Battery life seems like it should be better. I get around 6-7 hours normally. Standby for only about a week if left off the charger and unused. - Will probably buckle under the pressure of running multiple android apps and chrome windows.

    The best chromebook I have purchased so far!

    |
    Posted .

    I absolutely love this chromebook. I checked all the reviews on different websites before buying and I can say without a doubt that this is the best chromebook by far! I was particularly interested in a computer that could double as a tablet and this chromebook plus did not disappoint!! This is my 3rd chromebook so I am no stranger to this product! The price was right when I bought it! I have owned it for almost 1 month and so far so good! The ability to use it as a tablet is something that I am so happy with! I also own a Galaxy S2 tablet but I wanted something a little bigger and I am very satisfied with this purchase. The keyboard is so easy to use but the plus is that its completely touch screen so I was able to get rid of using a mouse. The screen is the right size and playing my online games became a lot easier after this purchase. I highly recommend this chromebook if you are just looking for a simple computer and tablet in one!!

    Battery Life Is Amazing

    |
    Posted .

    The main reason I grabbed this wasnt as a replacement for my laptop. I just needed something light weight and with good battery life to get me through the week with how much I am always on the go. My laptop was big and the battery life isnt great. I can easily get through 8+ hours of usage and still have plenty of battery life left. If you use google products like I do then this will be perfect.

    Very good quality Chromebook / Tablet

    |
    Posted .

    Very pleased with this computer, but there are a few things that could be better. First, while this is not really an issue, it's kind of difficult to flip open... you have to grab the edges just right in the small cutout on the front. Next, I was expecting the speed to be better... it's not always noticeable, but my daughter's older Acer Chromebook seems to load pages a bit quicker. Haven't had this for very long, so it may take more time to get a better comparison. Lastly, I haven't been able to find several apps that will work, although I know it will still take some time for all apps to be compatible. One of the apps that I couldn't get to work was for DirecTV, & it wouldn't work through the Chrome browser either. Aside from all those things, I would still choose this high quality machine at this price point & over others on the market.

    Solid performance, Slim Build, Great Battery Life

    Posted .

    My Nexus 9 tablet I had from 2 years ago had started showing it age, so I was looking to upgrade. Now that Chromebooks support Android Apps, I thought this would be a good replacement as it would also offer me a keyboard. Off the bat, I noticed that the build quality is really good. When you go to the Best Buy Chromebook display it immediately stands out compared to the thick and bulky plastic units next to it. It's lightweight and slim. In tablet mode, it does feel a bit large, but I notice on my normal couch browsing, I'm more likely to use it laptop or tent mode anyway. I was concerned about performance since it's using what's basically a phone processor and not a more powerful Intel processor, but it hasn't been a problem at all. I've run multiple Android apps, had over 25 tabs open, watched multiple 1080p Youtube streams and it's all been buttery smooth. I've been really impressed with this performance. So far, most Android apps have worked well for me. There have been a few that have crashed but none of my more important ones. I imagine as Chromebooks using Android apps take off, developers will start to test them on Chromebooks to make sure they work flawlessly. Battery life is great too, about 7 - 8 hours usage for me. It's a huge change from my tablet that only got 4 - 6 hours. The biggest downside is getting used to ChromeOS which just takes some getting used to.

    Very pleased with my first chromebook

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this Chromebook to replace an aging laptop and so far am very happy with it. I use it for email, social media, Netflix, YouTube, ebooks, and comic books, and it handles those tasks very well. The speakers are nothing special but headphones sound great, the screen on the other hand is excellent. Being able to access the Play Store and run Android apps makes this a very versatile machine. I like to watch a lot of 80's music videos and read comic books and the screen size works perfectly for this, the stretched screen of most Chromebooks and laptops does not. Being able to plug in the power chord on either side of the machine is very useful, this is a feature I always wanted on previous machines but never had. There is no wrong way to insert the USB C connector, unlike the older version that that gives you a 50/50 shot that you get wrong 90% of the time. I was going to hold out for the Pro version but am glad I pulled the trigger on the Plus.

    The best chromebook I have ever had!!!

    Posted .

    This is my 3rd chromebook and I am very happy with this product!!! I wanted a computer that could be used as a tablet and this chromebook is the best and the perfect addition for my daily work tasks! The touch screen is a plus which is something I had to get use to instead of using a mouse but I quickly adapted! I can actually enlarge the screen when using the tablet to play my games!!! The S-pen which is included is wonderful when playing online games! I have plenty of room for all my pictures and music! I would not buy another computer or tablet unless its a chromebook because it has its own security which is activated by restarting the computer when needed! No need to buy additional security such as Norton or McAfee!!!

    Excellent Chromebook but Android Apps...

    |
    Posted .

    Overall I love this Chromebook. It is lightweight, has great specs, and high quality build. However, the main draw for most will be the Android Apps integration. This feature is hit or miss. Most major apps are there and will work, like Gmail and Google Calendar, but, they will look stretched out versions of the tablet app and you are limited to experiences that are geared towards tablets. For example, the Google Docs app hides the top bar that contains the main functions found in a word processing app. You are better off just using the Chrome browser and accessing Google Docs site. MS Office apps are incompatible with the Chromebook, but the site works just fine. Video apps like Netflix and Hulu, work great when you hit the full screen button on the keyboard. As for the stylus, I mainly just use it to interact with the screen and works great for that. Finally, the battery life is fantastic and it is a great travel laptop.

    Surprisingly Impressed

    |
    Posted .

    I have tried iPads and Android (Asus Transformer) and have always been disappointed by how CLOSE they came but that they fell short of being a USEFUL device. In my experience so far, I am quite pleasantly surprised and pleased with this unit. I genuinely appreciate the union of the Android and Chrome UIs. Chrome books have teased me for sometime, but putting the two together pushed me over the hesitation to try this unit. I added a 128G microSD so I think I will do fine with storage. What I LOVE is the flexibility! Touch screen, flip configuration, keyboard and then... the stylus. I am impressed. I am not a huge Google Docs fan, so true productivity impressions are still being determined, but the fact remains I CAN use this device to produce work! This is the failure point of the other lighter devices. All in all, I am glad I made this investment. I struggled to say that about the other devices I have tried.
