Store Your Files In the Cloud, Not On the Machine

To help make them thin and light, Chromebooks are built without large-capacity drives. So instead of storing your documents, videos, and photos on your computer, you save them to Google Drive (Google’s Cloud-based storage service) Your files are password-protected and secure, and you can access them anywhere there’s an Internet connection. If you know you’ll want access to a file or photo offline, however, you can easily save it to the built-in solid-state drive.

A great Chromebook choice (but there are other brand new models that are better and the same price!) A decent Chomebook for sure, but there are better options out there. First, let me review this and then I’ll tell you about a couple others to look into. First of all, this is Samsung’s newest released Chromebook and it packs some decent power, RAM, and hard drive space, but nothing extraordinary that you can’t find on other newly released Chromebooks.PROCESSOR:Like many Chromebooks being released, this one is still using the Intel Celeron 2.16 GHz dual-core processor. It’s a decent processor and there’s no doubt it will handle everything you need it to, however, it is starting to become outdated, especially when you compare it to Acer’s new Chromebook which offers the NVIDIA Tegra K1 Quad Core 2.1 GHz Processor. HUGE difference in processing power. That said, even though Acer is currently leading the way for other Chromebook manufacturers, you can’t go wrong with the Celeron processors as this is a Chromebook, not a full Windows running laptop…

Getting Used to the Track Pad My husband is a tremendously picky, die-hard Mac user. He spent some time with this Samsung Chromebook 2 and ended up being very impressed. It’s very stylish–the silver cover has a textured leather look, complete with a “seam” trim. The 11.6″ HD screen is very sharp and “non-glare”–unlike the overly reflective shine of our Mac.Since we already have a google account (guest log-in is possible, but is highly restrictive), it was very easy to login. We could then access a number of features that allowed us to personalize the computer, take photos with the camera, create documents/spreadsheets/slides, retrieve additional apps…In many ways, the set-up reminded us of a big Android Pad with an additional built-in keyboard.The Samsung Chromebook 2 has no disk drive, making it very light and portable. For this reason, my husband prefers using it to quickly get online and walk around the house using our Wi-Fi. The speed is there–this Chromebook…

Meets All of My Needs! I was extremely hesitant to buy a Chromebook because I wasn’t familiar with the Chrome operating system. I researched diligently and then decided I would take a risk and purchase one. I have a laptop but it is big and bulky. I only use it at home while I use a desktop at my office. I am an attorney and I go to court on a daily basis. I needed something that I could type in the judge’s orders quickly. I travel from one courtroom to another constantly all day. I also needed something that was lightweight and quick to boot up. I had tried using my Samsung Galaxy tablet but it really didn’t work for me. I didn’t like having to connect a keyboard and I don’t type quick enough with the virtual keyboard. I guess I am old school and need a regular keyboard. My laptop was too big and heavy. I work for a nonprofit agency and couldn’t afford a new laptop. So, I purchased the Samsung Chromebook 2. I absolutely love it.First, it is so lightweight and sleek. I can carry…
