    Chrome OS (Software) Review I’ve been using one of the laptops that Google originally distributed in order to test Chrome OS. As the idea behind Chromebooks is new to some, I thought I’d focus on the operating system, though I’ve covered the hardware to a point.I’ll try to make this in-depth without it being too technical.If you’re looking for a quick idea of whether or not this is for you, jump to the bottom and read the summary.The ConceptThe premise on which Chrome OS is based is that almost everything you do when you use your computer happens in your browser, so Google have built a system that makes that experience as fast, as simple and as secure as they can. That simplicity also leads to an 8-hour battery life, which very few laptops can offer.This simpler approach means that you don’t have to deal with software updates(with one exception, see below) or worry about anti-virus software.This also means all of your files and media is stored on other…

    Hassle-free, fast and powerful I had an older Chromebook and the new Samsung 550 is much much better. It is fast, simple and surprisingly powerful. As long as you’re comfortable with the Google Apps products (great word processor and spreadsheet, adequate presentation editor and capable of reading all Microsoft Office attachments) this is a perfect laptop for casual use. The concept of everything in the cloud works great, and makes it easy to upload, view and share pictures from your camera, do your email and social networking, and do your day-to-day document editing all from one place, then pick it up and continue on a different computer if needed. Google video chat or hangouts are better than Skype, and accommodates video conferencing with multiple parties, so ideal for families. This will save me a ton of time acting as tech support for my parents and sister, because there is so little to know to get this laptop working.I find it interesting to read reviews about how you can get a more powerful…

    A Fantastic Update For a Killer Concept I bought this after finding that I used my original Samsung Series 5 Chromebook more than I used any of my devices. With the increase in specs compared to last year’s machine, I was certain this would be an excellent device and my new favorite machine.Shell – Easily the most improved aspect. It’s not metal, but easily some of the best looking and feeling plastic you’ll find. The bottom has a textured brushed feel. There is a slight wedge feel to it vs. the uniform thickness of the original series 5. There are nice bumpers on the bottom and small ones near the keyboard which keeps the screen from touching the keys.Screen – Same screen as the prior model. Nice and bright when turned up. Matte. Wide viewing angle. The top to bottom viewing angle can be bit limited.Keyboard – The chiclet layout is same as prior. They have a bit more bounce than last time, and instead of the brushed plastic from the Series 5, these have a smoother surface. I…
