I have a desktop, a couple old netbooks, and a Macbook Pro from 2008. I needed something that I could take with me to do some light computing and writing. The MBP is just too big and heavy, and the battery is starting to go. The batteries on the netbooks don’t last very long either and the keyboards and screens are cramped. I was thinking about a cheap Windows 10 netbook but I ended up getting some Samsung store credit so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out one of these Chromebooks I’ve been hearing so much about. You can tell from the four stars that I’m a fan. Not that this thing is perfect, because it really isn’t, but it certainly does everything I need it too. The battery lasts forever. Really, it’s endless. I unplugged it this morning around 10:30am and I’ve been using it sporadically throughout the day. It’s now after 7pm and I still have over eight hours left. That’s incredible. I’m a fan of the keyboard. I have big hands and have trouble with smaller keyboards but have no issues with this one. Compared to my netbooks this is downright spacious and have no problem doing long writing sessions on it. The first time I opened up the Chromebook, my first impression was that it had a bigger keyboard than expected for such a small computer. The touchpad is fine. The size is good and it can do multitouch. I noticed that sometimes it registers me using two fingers when I’m only using one, but it’s rare enough that it doesn’t matter. It’s one of those clicky touchpads without separate mouse buttons, which is fine, but I noticed if I’m holding the computer with one hand, the bottom can bend inward slightly and then the mouse button can’t be clicked. A strange complaint, but they really could have put a little more reinforcement at the bottom of the computer below the touchpad to prevent this. I wish I could say some good things about the screen, but I can’t say more than it’s serviceable. I knew what I was getting into with the 1366 x 768 screen. I did the math and realized it had a better pixel density than my 1080p 24inch monitor so I figured it’d be fine. But it sure doesn’t seems as good. The main problem is the viewing angles. They’re alright side to side, but pretty abysmal up and down. Does this really matter in daily use? Nah. It’s an 11� Chromebook. It’s really just meant for individual use so it’s not like a family is going to gather around to watch Downton Abbey. But still, like I said, the horizontal viewing angle is OK, so two people could watch without issues if you’re planning to bring this on a trip. The brightness level is good enough for most situations. The speakers are fine. I find them to be loud enough. The build quality it absolutely top notch, besides that little inward bending on the bottom that I mentioned before which most people might never run into. It’s all plastic but it looks and feels like quality. The first thing I noticed was how thin it is. I was coming off of 3+ year old netbooks which, while small, weren’t particularly thing. The Chromebook is also surprisingly heavy for the weight, and I don’t mean that in a bad way. It feels pleasantly solid and well built. The hinge for the display is excellent. It’s stiff in a good way, where it will stay right where you put it. Also it can open up 180 degrees, which is good for using it in bed sometimes. I also love that it’s fanless. Now let’s get to the usability of the device. It’s not quick. My desktop has an i5, which of course blows the Celeron in this out of the water, but since ChromeOS is such a streamlined system, I kind of expected a little more speed. Loading up Google music takes about twice as long on the Chromebook 3. Working on lengthy Google Docs also invites slowness. I find 1080p youtube videos stutter a bit, but why would you be watching 1080p youtube videos on a 1366 x 768 screen anyway? 720p works and looks fine. So I’ve complained about the slowness and the low resolution, but also that’s part of the tradeoff that allows the battery to last so long. On some occasions the wifi will drop. Not for long, and it usually comes back up by itself. To sum up. I’m really happy with it. Especially the keyboard, build quality, and battery life. The viewing angles of the screen is what bothers me the most and might force me to upgrade one day. But at $230, it’s hard not to recommend the Chromebook 3 to someone who wants a sturdy and very portable laptop.

This is a cheap internet notebook and it does have a few hit's and misses for such a cheap price. Most noticeably is the CPU which is not the best for loading complex web sites. It can bog down easily. The screen quality is not so great, but acceptable for the price point. Touchpad and keyboard are actually really good for such a small notebook. I was fine with key travel and touchpad was a decent size. The audio was typically weak but not a surprise in a small notebook. I usually have a pair of headphones around. My only real issue, which caused me to reconsider the Chromebook was that it has a Micro SD slot not a full SD card slot. Otherwise for an inexpensive notebook I will use as a secondary device. I certainly think it's a solid choice if you accept its limitations.

Best Uses

    Samsung Chromebook is one of my many laptops. I use it mostly for internet related work. It is surprisingly light, fast and has very long battery life. Even many of my tablets do not have that long battery life. In most of the cases, the battery lasts more than 7 hours. It is very light and so I can carry it more easily than I carry a tablet.

        This chrome book is exactly what I need for class. I needed something that I could write my papers on an didn't want to spend a lot of money for a laptop. It's small and compact. Lightweight and easy to carry. I'm not really into computers these days because it's just seems easier to do everything on my phone and navigating them is sometimes just aggravating. So having something that's made for students will be great for me.

              Being stuck at 2GB when there are 4 and 8 models available sucks. When I read that it used ddr3, I figured it was like my acer and could max it out at 16. This is barely even a toy.

                            This is the second chrome book I've owned. All my electronics are Samsung produces. I was very please with my first chrome book until my son broke it. This is just perfect for me,the only thing is that the computer is not touch screen. Other than that, you can not beat the price or other features.
