I recently purchased the 13" version of this Chromebook at Best Buy. The vertical viewing angle of the screen is terrible! It’s the only thing that dislike about it.
Based upon my experiences with over 1400 of these (but the silver case) … don’t do it. The drives and computer hardware tend to hold up, but the case, hinges, and screen do not. You’ll be repairing and/or replacing things that just aren’t worth replacing on a $140 device. At that price, you’ll find yourself replacing the device instead. Just spend about $100 more something more “rugged” that has a larger storage capacity, and you’ll be happier in the long run.
WOW. It’s a Samsung with a Lithium-Ion battery.
What could possibly go wrong?
Agreed. We have (had?) two. You can do better.
