Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great Product! came fast in the mail and is perfect for someone in school.

 

-Super light -Full HD -Great battery -Typing is easy and fast

-really nitpicking but the box it came in was HUGE -even at the fastest setting, the mouse speed isnt very fast -this maybe a ChromeOS issue but the resolution is ether too small or too big

Chromebook 2, whoo hoo!

 

Detractors of the Chromebook should research in advance what they are getting if they switch from a "traditional" laptop. I hope Google continues to support the Chromebook as the Chrome OS becomes Android centric. It would be nice to just be able to go...

Love the bigger screen and quicker response with my Chromebook 2. The 4GB memory does make a difference, too. Had a Samsung 11.6-inch previously with 2GB. Haven't put too many of the other features to work, but it seems to be going just fine a little...

Glitch encountered with refurbished machine on Chromecast. It took a restore to original condition to get over a glitch that would not allow downloading of the cast extension from the Chrome Web Store. I called Google support and none of the staff...

Great Value

 

Considering this is refurbished, I'm really loving this computer. I exclusively use it for word documents and internet browsing (to limit distractions). The lack of bloatware or other common issues with other operating systems means a quick start up,...

1) Lightweight 2) Easy to Use 3) Sleek design 4) Minimalist UI reduces on-screen clutter 5) Quick Charging, long (8-9 hours) battery life. Easy access

1) Initial boot-up and first time use is slow, since the computer is installing all of your extensions and Google Apps 2) Wifi connection isn't always stable (but to be fair, this may also be an issue with my router) 3) The refurbished price wasn't...

Good card, Great value, better than Xfired 270Xs.

 

I love this Chromebook. I bought it specifically because it uses the latest big.LITTLE Arm processor technology and has 4GB of system RAM. Although this is new technology, it is working better than I expected. Crouton allows me to chroot into Ubuntu at...

Long Battery Life, (8 hours) ; Light-weight ; Doesn't get hot ; Nicely Made -- nice screen ; Good price for what you get

To fully enjoy this, I installed Crouton. This requires some tech savvy and disabling the Chrome OS verification check on boot ; In Ubuntu, you cannot run Wine apps on an Arm processor (nor Skype)

Leaves me feeling sick.

 

I bought some other items from Newegg and I love them, but this Chromebook leaves me feeling sick.

1. Works well with Google Apps

1. Randomly makes irritating noises ; 2. Has problems running apps not made by Google ; 3. Processor does not run at advertised speed ; 4. Randomly reboots ; 5. Sometimes even Google Apps have to be reinstalled

Great look and feel

 

I installed ChrUbuntu, so I can run the native Chrome OS or switch over to Linux which dramatically increases the versatility of this device and the range of applications I can run.

the screen is the big selling point over other Chromebooks. 1920x1080 on a 13,3" screen is a very high pixel density compared to the vast majority of other monitors or laptop screens resulting in a great picture, easily outclassing any other...

Integrated graphics. ARM processor limits what applications you can use, but I can still do most of what I wanted. Depending on what you want to use it for, these cons may not be cons for you at all. the Chromebook fits a specialized role, and i leave...

What A Joke

 

Spend an extra $200 and get something useful

I'll let you know when I find one

Useless! Doesn't even do basic functions needed of a laptop. This thing is a joke if you need to do ANYTHING besides basic web browsing
