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.

I bought this for collaboration with other platforms and it is completely unusable. The page breaks are different that what is in a pc with chrome. A complete waste of money. I looked on the net to find beyond aha the same problems. I expected more from Samsung and google. Never again will I buy from either vendor!

                    Second Chromebook I have owned -- had the original Samsung Chromebook when they came out. It is still working with a family member. It was fine but as Chrome OS got more functions I needed a faster processor and more RAM. Also it had a full size SD slot which meant you really couldn't use it as semi-permanent file storage. The micro-SD slot in the Chromebook 3 is a big plus for me, since even though I do most of my work in the cloud, I do have extensive local storage needs and the 64 GB card I installed does the job for me -- actually a bit overkill, but I had it in the drawer. The Chromebook 3 does everything I need except my website development chores, which I still use a Windows-based program for. I expect to move all that over to browser-based app in the near future, now that those have improved so much. The big plus features of the Samsung Chromebook 3 are 1) lightweight; 2) great battery life; 3) better screen than other low priced Chromebooks or "cloud-books"; 4) Way better keyboard. It is so-o-o-o portable!

                                  I found myself logging into my desktop and immediately opening my browser and going online. Rarely did I use it for much else. So I thought a chromebook would be perfect since I really prefer a non-touch interface. And it was!! This thing is responsive and solidly built.

The value of the chromebook is perfect and it is just what I need. I plan on using it for school so I wanted something different than my galaxy tablet. So excited to keep finding out new features. I love my Samsung gadgets!
