    "Love it...great !...Great for games & looking things up....After a week with this my advice is this: If you pickup a Chromebook thinking it'll just take the place of your laptop 1:1 you'll likely be disappointed, But if you're ready to accept and use a Chromebook for what it's, rather than fight against it for what it'sn't, then you're in for a treat."
