"It won't ever replace a Windows or Mac PC"2.0 starson by Johnny_S
Pros: Cheap models, some provide good battery life like the Samsung Series 3
Cons: Cloud printing is not a god solution, lacks LAN port and Samsung Series 3 uses a weak Smartphone processor.
Summary: I bought the Samsung series 3 with Chrome OS on it. I have to say its rather worthless unless you are in love with Google. The hardware goes from marginally better then the original netbooks in a Chromebook from Samsung or Acer. To a ridiculously expensive Pixel model at $1300!! For a operating system that is so broken you cannot even plug a printer into it and print something? Any Linux version can do that? Chrome OS is revolutionary? Hardly. Its very basic, and meant to forward Google's other services and get to monitor more users for its ads. Plain and simple its a data mining tool for Google. If your really cheap and need a laptop I guess if all you need is a browser and you don't care its Chrome browser and you don't care if your married to Google. Then buy a Chromebook. Otherwise pass and buy anything else. Also just FYI. Because the Samsung Chromebook uses a ARM based chip your pretty much stuck at this point with Chrome OS. At least if you buy a Chromebook like the Acer you can install other operating systems. Like Windows or a better Linux version like Ubuntu.
