These are great… no viruses and can do what 90% of what people do with a pc anyway… yes there will be some snarky comments on its limitations and google knowing everything about you but if you look deeply into your soul it can do most of what you want…
Yes it needs internet but there is more capability for offline usage now than before but who doesnt have internet capabilty these days?
And did I say no viruses?
I love my Samsung Chromebook
Does it come with any sort of warranty without purchasing the 1 year thing? Does it come with 90 days at least or anything like that?
on the Features listing:
Warranty: 90 Day Samsung
Just saw that lol, my bad.
Was considering picking up the Nextbook 10.1 Windows 8 2-in-1 from Walmart for $180,but this has me second guessing. Anyone with experience with that machine (or similar) have any thoughts?
Would mostly use for Internet, some video streaming, and taking notes/viewing docs in meetings.
I just bought this at the woot off and I love it … I am using it now…great worth every penny
I bought a HP chromebook from WOOT w/32g memory and 4g ram, and it’s been great. I just wanted to check out chromeOS, but since it seeemed to be quicker than my 4 core laptop for browsing, i’m using the chromebook instead. Be advised you can’t plug in a printer, you have to use google cloud print. I added a linux partition to get around that when needed. ChromeOS boots fast, is very secure, and google docs can be used offline.
I figured a person can view these in one of two ways. It’s either a crappy, feature-barren laptop that can’t run any of your standard Windows stuff, or a “beefy” (used loosely) tablet with the bonus of having a mouse/keyboard and a screen you don’t have to cover in finger prints.
All it’s good for is standard internet use, office-type apps, casual gaming. But if that’s all you want to do, it’s great. People just expect out of them what they’re not designed for, I feel.
I love chrome books, I have 6 tablets, win 7, win 8, a mac. However, I would not buy this one because of the 2 gigs. You want 4 gigs.
First off, chromebooks are great as a travel pc or as a supplemental laptop for other rooms in your house. That said, I seldom use mine. the screen sucks. This is a decent price for a Chromebook. However, I found the same thing on newegg for 140 and free shipping. Seems to be the same refurb as this, but maybe I’m missing something.
Well if you need to relocate your whole family across the country, you get an 18 wheeler, it has so much power, can carry everything including things you never knew you had nor had any use for, and go a long long ways. But if you’re just running around the corner for milk and eggs… 18 wheeler won’t even warm up before you are out and back in a golf cart. And cooked, and ate, and cleaned up.
on mine now. decent enough for the bare basics.
netflix lags…you tube lags…scrolling through web pages with pics n videos lags.
really needs lighted keyboard.
I’ve almost completely converted to Chromebooks. As someone who has worked in IT for 20+ years, I can tell you that ChromeOS is really quite good, fast and if you have the ability to virtualize any PC applications you need, Chromebooks are the way to go. The only real complaint I have is RAM. I wish these machines were coming with 8 or 16 gb not 2 or 4. That’s because I have a ton of extensions running and tend to keep between 25 and 100 tabs open. Even doing that, this Samsung never let me down, I just had to learn to be a little more patient.
I don’t like that it only has a 90 day warranty, but for the price, you can’t go wrong. I’m picking on up to have as a spare and keep around for guests to use.
Do be careful with the power connector though. If you’re like me and use computers in all sorts of odd positions on the couch, in chairs, on the floor, in bed, etc, etc, and you are using it while it’s charging, if you put pressure on the connector, over time, you will loosen the solder joints on the receptical. If you’re handy and can solder, it’s easy to fix. But if you’re like me and have a lifelong grade of F when it comes to soldering, you can end up with a paperweight. While that happened to me, on 2 different units, both were over 2 years old when it happened and had been used and abused.
I usually cringe when reading the copy provided by Woot to introduce a product - you know, the attempts at snarky and pithy and other ys. But this morning’s Google+ rant was really quality stuff. Clearly, it was written by a geek with an above average sense of humor and sarcasm. (No, it wasn’t me). Right on.
