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.

            This is great small computer. If you just need to do some basic word processing, this is the computer for you. I bought this for my children, who use chromebooks all day in school. This is perfect for their homework. Of course, it has little to no memory, so they can't download their favorite games (which I am just fine with!)

                        Love this thing so far! I decided to keep the 2GB for myself after ordering the wrong one for my son, who wanted the 4GB. I have a desktop that I use for documents but wanted something portable, other than my phone or ipad, to use for web browsing and email. I love having a real keyboard to type on. The keyboard has a good feel to it and the screen is plenty large and clear. It's a fantastic value when price is compared to other tablets and laptops. It's great for watching videos and movies. I am a novice when it comes to technology but I had no trouble setting it up, establishing my email, setting up favorites, etc. And, if I decide to replace it at some point, there's not a lot invested in it.

                                I got this for my 9 yr old for Christmas. It's her first chromebook/laptop and she loves it! She has been using my desktop and laptop for about a year now before she received this and has always love to play her RPG games online. My desktop would move rather slow and keep freezing with her games, but with her chromebook the games work consistently and fast, and while even having multiple tabs open. She is very much a klutz, so the ruggedness, durability, and size were all factors when I purchased this and I am very happy to say that I made the right choice!

I should have saved a little more money and just purchased a laptop instead. Dont get me wrong, samsung always has nice products. This just doesnt do the things that I need it to do. I will say i like the fact that it has 2 USB ports, an HDMI port, and a micro SD card slot.

                                    The product is pretty good besides the stalls that occasionally occur. Light weight and a bit fashionable. There are things that I wish it did include such as a CD drive and a direct internet port, however it stills stands the test and does I guess as it is intended. Recently Mic just stopped working so I'm looking for help on that issue... All in all, it's pretty good , not absolutely amazing, but i will say its worth the spend if i can get this Mic issue resolved being that it is a big component for most apps and chat... and I love saying "OK Google"..

                                                            I previously owned a Samsung Chromebook and was deeply saddened when someone broke it. I had the previous one for about 5 years and never had a problem with it. I decided to buy the same Chromebook because it is great and cheap! It is easy to carry around. It's really useful for my classes; I take notes in it, do all my research and write papers.

                                                                I build computers, the Windows kind, and so a I a fairly deep knowledge of these things. Anytime I want to do something on a computer I pick up my Samsung Chromebook 3. It is light, portable, never gets hot, absolutely quiet, great keyboard and trackpad, descent sound, beautiful screen, never has a virus problem. In essence it just works. It is worry free. It is not for heavy duty movie editing or photo manipulating with Adobe, but for the bulk of the things you will use a computer for on an everyday basis it is fantastic. This is my 2nd Samsung Chromebook. I loved my last one, so I bought another!

                                                                  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.
