    It's a good computer

    Posted

    I am not a tech nerd. A lot of reviews on here are not for people like me who don't really understand the lingo. I had the same computer since highschool (I'm now 25) and it finally died on me. It was a touchscreen so that's what I was use to. I decided for my kind of use I really only needed a chromebook and not a full on computer. I saw this one in stores and liked it better than the other chromebooks they had displayed. I've had this computer for about a month and a half and it does great. I mainly use it at night for youtube, news sites, pinterest etc. The battery life is great (I can keep mine unplugged for a few days at a time, granted I only use it at night in my bedroom), the touchscreen works great, the picture is awesome, web pages load quickly and I have no issues with the keyboard being "cramped" as others have mentioned. The ONLY complaint I would have is the brightness. The screen is very bright and doesn't get very dim for nighttime/before-bed use (but that's just my personal preference). This is a very small con for me and not a big deal. Overall for users like me this computer is awesome.

    Excellent 2 in 1 Chromebook for kids

    Got 2 of these for my 3rd and 4th grade girls to replace Lenovo Thinkpads that turned out to be a bad buy. The Chrome OS has so many fewer issues than Windows. Also the same OS they use as school so they can login into their school accounts. Easy to set up with controlled access, fortunately Google just enabled access to the Play store for controlled accounts on Chromebook right before Christmas, so now able to download Android apps, which make this a good kids play computer/tablet as well as for school. If I was looking for a new cheap computer for myself this would be on my list. Not for power users, but for everyday tasks, surfing etc. it does the job well. Would never buy a cheap Windows laptop again, Chromebooks have come a long way and this one is good value.

    Enjoying V2 just as much as V1

    Posted
    aingealmum

    So, the updates/upgrades are not MASSIVE between V1 and V2 and I know that will deter many people from upgrading from V1, but IMO it's worth it. V2 seems much more "solid" to me, less likely to tip when I have it on my lap. I truly do not notice the change in screen resolution between V2 and V1, but I do notice that the screen does seem more responsive to touch or to the stylus with V2. I find the rear-facing camera being very helpful for taking pics while in tablet mode, SO much easier than trying to aim the front-facing camera, although the software for this is a bit "laggy" right now... it works, but you have to be patient. Overall, I am quite satisfied I made the decision to upgrade.

    I went to Best Buy not really knowing if the chromebook would be the best decision for me. I explained my concerns to the employee (Kyle I believe), and helped me answer all my questions. At first, I was a little worried that the chromebook might not be "enough" for all my needs but it actually is. It has just the right amount of apps and programs to get me though my days. I use the internet mostly for my day to day needs. This is definetly not a computer, is more like a giant cellphone with a keypad. It is faster than a laptop of the same price. I totally recommend it to whoever needs a basic function of a laptop or whoever uses mostly just internet.

    When i was looking for a Chromebook upgrade to my old HP 14, I initially was looking at the HPs and others. But i eventually settled on the Samsung unit. the screen is great for movies and just general web browsing. the speakers sound very good, but could be louder. the touchscreen is top notch and feels great. The tablet mode is great for browsing the web and using android apps. Also I use tent mode quite a bit to watch netflix. The keyboard is another big plus, Feels great for touch typing (writing this review on it now). Battery life is great for general browsing and word excel and such, but drains quickly with netflix or youtube.

    Samsung Chromebook 2 in 1

    I’m using this as a work laptop plus I’m streaming on it. It’s touch screen is really receptive, the pen that’s hidden is what sold me. Having the pen to draw when in tablet mode helps but isn’t needed b/c of the touchscreen. Everything about this chromebook has been amazing. I highly recommend it. Just know there’s not a lot of memory. Again I’m using to log spreadsheet numbers for my business so having google drive & sheets was a big selling point instead of paying an extra $80-100 on Microsoft office. It’s also compact & light which I love. Priced @350 instead of a $1000 MacBook Air didn’t hurt either.

    First off let me say, I had a dell inspiron 2-in-1 before this chromebook. I had only had windows before and was new to Chrome OS. I have used Chrome as a browser before but that was the extent of my knowledge. I have my own business and work online every day. I am able to do heavy browsing and switching between apps without lag. It's also nice without the windows bloat wear bogging down my laptop. It is fast and very intuitive. It took me only a matter of minutes to figure out this laptop,which I love. This is perfect for anyone who needs simplistic every day use. I will update if anything new develops but for now, I'm ecstatic.

    I love this little chromebook. It starts so fast and the screen looks great. The touch screen reaction feels very responsive. I bought this to try out some digital art and the stylus included feels nice in my hand. This is not a digital art device for experienced artists. It works well for me just starting out. Battery life works great for browsing the internet and streaming for a while. Games will suck the battery a bit faster. I turn down my brightness the second the computer loads and the battery lasts much much longer. I am very satisfied with my purchase as it suits my needs.

    I was looking for a 2-in-1 device to replace my aging Samsung Chromebook that I bought in 2014. I was considering various Chromebooks and other 2-in-1 devices such as the Surface Pro 6 and Lenovo Yoga Book, but my search stopped when I experienced this computer first hand at Best Buy. It is an awesome user experience and very responsive on the web-based applications. As a bonus, the stylus pen was included and could be stored on the side of the computer. This Chromebook truly combines the best of all 2-in-1 devices currently on the market and I would recommend it to everyone!

    Great chromebook for students

    This little chromebook is very good for college students who don't want to break the bank on a laptop. Many people like to drop excessive amounts of money on Macs for school but the functionality of this chromebook exceeds them for a small fraction of the price. This chromebook is very sleek and leightweight, and the fact that it doubles as a tablet is very useful. For the small pricetag you really can't really ask for more out of this little chromebook. Of course this can't perform any graphics intensive or CPU intensive processes but that is not the point of a chromebook.

    Fantastic Chromebook

    This is my first Chromebook and I'm really impressed. I have used the V1 of this that a friend had prior to buying V2 and I can say the screen "downgrade" is greatly exaggerated. The screen is gorgeous, the keyboard is amazing and the fit and finish of the Chromebook is great. The hinges are solid and feel like they are built to last. My only concern is a complete and utter lack of accessories for the V2. No skins, no screen protectors, no clip on cases, etc. I find that really annoying. I'd love at least a skin and screen protector, but alas, there is nothing I can find on the web for the V2.

    Great computer for my school age daughter

    My daughter is 8 years old in second grade, she has been using google chrome at school to practice her typing skills and learning how to do basic research. Her teacher also has a website with extra activities they can do to study their spelling words, math, science and the like. This computer couldn’t be any more perfect for her! It’s easy to use and turns into a tablet! It’s the best of both worlds & it’s also super fast. I absolutely recommend for a younger school aged child, since that’s what I needed it for!

    I purchased this chromebook to replace an old HP Stream that was failing to run Windows 10 in an acceptable manner. Moving to chrome was the best thing I did. This machine is very light, easily portable and to travel with, and the battery life is fantastic. Top that off with a secure operating system, touch screen, stylus, and convertible form factor, it's fantastic for the price and even better when on sale! I'd highly recommend this chromebook. USB-C and A ports, fast charging, great screen colors, Samsung did a great job here!

    definitely happy with the purchase. it's has a very clear screen to watch movies and videos on, I love the stylus for drawings and notes,it's super light and incredibly compact. the only downside is probably the speakers, to me it's not a problem because when I'm home I play the sound through my speakers and when I'm out of the house I use headphones. but I can see that it might be a problem for some people. overall though, I would definitely recommend it to a friend and I'm really happy with the purchase

    I'm a very busy young professional. I substitute teach, I tutor college students, and I work retail; I'm also my family's administrator so I need a device that was portable, easy to use, and versatile! I can ready e-books, I can type up essays, work on collaborative projects, create lesson plans and presentations, watch my shows, and highlight and edit files! I love the stylus, how portable this Chromebook is, and of course how user-friendly the software is!

    I'm upgrading from a 2011 Samsung Chromebook Model XE303C12-A01US. Huge difference in speed and a gorgeous display, My three criteria for a new Chromebook were WUXGA (1920X1200) / AC wifi / and a glass display all for under $350. I got all that plus the ability to flip into a tablet and a pen on top of that. I doubt I would pay the full $500 price. But you would be hard pressed to find the specs this Chromebook provides for less than $350.

    I bought this thinking it would be a nice little cheap laptop. My girlfriend has a $1,500 laptop and in the store I could tell that this didn't come close. Not until I came home with it and got it running did it blow me away, and made me think that this was better than a $1,500 laptop. It's so fast, built around google, what more would you want! The stylus feels a little cheap but it does it job and it does it great. Best laptop ever.

    I bought this to use on the go and with quick things, like buying tickets or checking prices or weather, due to its size and portability. I liked the tablet like feature with the 180 Monitor flip. I was surprised with 2x usb-c ports but even more surprised it has a usb 3 port as well! Its highly effective and has everything i need including citrix integration. the shortcut buttons on the top are a great feature and you can also set it to use them as function keys if needed.

    I am very happy so far. I've had this about a month. I do very basic things and this is perfect. I bought this because I needed something with a bigger screen than my tablet and something to upload pictures from an SD card. This is perfect. My kids use it for Google classroom/docs when doing school work. I do my banking, shopping, emails and social media on this. The touch screen is nice. Haven't had any issues. It's very convenient to have. Small, lightweight & easy to use

    This is a nice replacement unit for the Samsung Pro 2-in-1 Chromebook. It has a nice finish color and feel. The size is about the same as the Pro version, however it does feel slightly heavier than the Pro. The only different between the Pro and the Plus is the processor, the Pro is supposed to have a faster processor than the Plus, however using it, I don't see much difference. Great unity so far.
