very happy with this Chromebook!

I have read a lot of reviews before buying this Chromebook. I must say, I am not disappointed. It is true that you may need an internet connection for a lot of things you may be doing...but the same can be said for any laptop, really. I have not found that this has hindered anything that I have tried to do thus far. I'm not into gaming, so I cannot say much about how this Chromebook would perform in that sense. I do a lot of general web browsing, checking emails, watching videos online, etc. This Chromebook is perfect for what I was looking to do with a laptop - plus I love the size. There is not much storage, but you do have access to Google Drive (which can be accessed offline), plus the ability to use USB storage devices. I have not installed many apps from the Chrome store yet, but there is quite a list off things to choose from, along with many apps that are available offline. I have plugged in an iPod to my Chromebook, and noticed that nothing really happened. I did not check into this (maybe there's an app for that), as I am not really an Apple person, so this really doesn't affect the functionality of the laptop at all to me. I do still have a desktop PC, but I rarely use it since buying this Chromebook (it's mainly used by others in the house). There is no CD/DVD drive - but that honestly is something that I haven't used even on my desktop in ages. I would've liked to have seen an addition though - the option to hardwire connect to the internet, for use in places where there is no wifi. Bottom line: This is a nice sized, functional laptop for a great price. It may not be the best thing for a only PC, but is great as a cost efficient replacement or second laptop. I love it, and would definitely would recommend!

Very Happy With This Purchase

I bought this laptop for my daughter who's 10 and it's perfect for her! Has all the tools she needs/wants -- internet, apps, email, youtube -- without all the clutter of things she does not -- word processing etc. Easy to put child locks on and to use. Great price! Very satisfied. :)
