"Not for kids? But great for an adult like me"4.0 starson by jerrysander
Ease of use
Fast start-up time
Tremendous sync with all your Chrome/Google stuff
Cons: Yes, it feels a little too flex-y
Keyboard is a little mushy
Summary: I bought this for my 12 year old son, hoping he'd like it for school, wireless printing, some games, transfer his music collection to Google Music, have easy portability, etc....He didn't love it. Why? No Minecraft, different version (or none) of familiar games, different interface than the Apple/Mac versions he plays with on his iPod Touch, unwillingness to stretch and learn Google Docs, etc...Just not an easy sell to a 12 year old who likes all things Apple. So...I took it back from him (with no guilt; only after he confirmed he finds it more trouble than it is worth to use and is too different from what he is comfortable with)...and...I really, really like it. Boot-up/fast start-up is at least 3 times faster than any Windows or Mac thing I've used, the screen is bright enough, the keyboard is okay-enough, and it is light, ultra-portable and connected with everything that matters to me -- G Mail, Google Music (with over 12,000 songs on it, for me), Google Docs, Facebook, other apps. It prints wirelessly to my Lexmark printer, I can use it to take notes while people are talking (I'm a therapist), it recharges quickly...What's not to like? If you are lucky enough to still find one to buy, get a 3 year Square Trade Warrantee with it. They've replaced/fixed my old Lenovo laptop twice under warranty, with free shipping both ways. Peace of mind. Thanks Google and Samsung!
