Consumer review (newegg.com)

Out of the box awesomeness!

 

I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a low-cost alternative to a laptop. If you are comfy within Chrome OS then you should have no qualms about purchasing. So far I'd consider this the best mobile device I've purchased.

Amazing speed, easy set up, no hassles with updates, working inside the OS is effortless with the help of Google docs, battery life is INSANE, I've never had a laptop (-esque) device work so smoothly or so quickly. I bought this mainly to watch...

I've been using almost daily for several weeks & I have zero complaints. The camera is the only thing I've not tested but I'll amend review should there be an issue. As has been noted by others the plug to charge is very tiny, I am careful with it as...

Solid school laptop

 

This laptop makes for a great back up computer or school/work laptop. It does all the things I need it to for school, except for programming like arduino or Matlab (gg chrome OS). But you can view pdfs (huge for my textbooks) and use Chrome for all...

-The battery lasts a long time (I've never had to worry about plugging it in while at school when I start from 100%) -The SSD makes boot time incredibly quick -Actually browses the internet well, and responds quickly to input even with a lot of tabs...

-I knew that I was getting a Chromebook, but I still don't like the limited feel of Chrome OS in terms of compatibility. There are a few programs that I would like to use that are only for windows or mac. -16 GB SSD isnt that big after OS (but you can...

Great product for a great price.

 

I recomment this machine to everybody that wants a secondary laptop. I already have a more powerfull desktop to use my programs and play video games , If you need a laptop to watch movies , do light work and to travel , this product is perfect. You...

Rugged construction , feels solid. All matte black , no fingerprints. Easy to setup Fast ( chrome os does a really good job managing ressources. ) Battery lasts a long time. I get around 5-6 hours streaming videos with brightness at maximum. Keyboard...

Charger plug is really small. feels like it could be a weak point so I am carefull with it. Viewing angles of the screen is not so great. Personally it does not bother me but could be someone else drawback.

Tired of complex Operating Systems?

 

I wouldn't recommend editing video on it, or creating a website, but other than that, there really isn't much of anything you can't do on it. OK, you COULD edit video on it, or create a website, but I wouldn't recommend you do so.

Chrome OS is easy to learn & even easier to use, unlike those other OS's (Windows, Apple OS, etc.). No worries about viruses. OS & program app updates occur unobtrusively, with no need for you to get involved. Lots of FREE programs available for it in...

Wow, I can't really think of anything to say here. I could always use a faster processor on all my computers, but then this one is fast enough for what you will do on it.

N21 4GB Chromebook

 

Loving this thing so far. It is faster than I expected. Just slightly slower than an i3 on a 5 year old laptop. The case is plastic, but sturdy and rigid. There is a carry handle that seats neatly at the back. It actually works very well. This thing is...

AC WiFi is noticeable when in local cafe'. Light, fast, sturdy. 4GB RAM, and the Cache is L2 which makes it faster than other brands.

No USB charging, really small power plug into the chromebook.

Nicely priced Chromebook

 

I purchased this Chromebook as a replacement for my previous Toshiba NB240 netbook -- both are my writing machines, purchased for their simplicity and size. This is far faster and far more versatile. I currently have Ubuntu Trusty running via Crouton...

Compact but not too small, powerful for a Chromebook, simple but perfect for my needs. Runs silently, thanks to the SSD hard drive and no fan.

Screen isn't the best but that's hardly unexpected from a Chromebook. Speakers aren't the greatest but I didn't purchase it to watch videos.
