This thing rocks!
This thing is great! I bought the 4GB model which will hopefully last me a few years but it's nice and snappy now. The 16GB of SSD storage is perfect as I use it for school and the biggest file I might be storing would be a picture. It integrates perfectly with my google account! This thing boots up super quick and it sleek and beautiful. It's lightweight, has a long battery life and although it's smaller than a standard laptop, the keyboard is easy to use.
Google and partners have done great with Chromebooks and have plenty of features to accommodate. There are multiple physical keyboard shortcuts running along the top of the keyboard to quickly adjust settings. There are also several different hotkey menus which are accessed by keyboard combinations.
The only thing I'm bummed about is the lack of Google Play. I'm still giving this thing 5 stars because the Play store should be released soon as it is already available on other Chromebooks.
I would highly recommend this to anyone, but especially to someone wanting something that is affordable, easy to use and just a bit more than a tablet.
UPDATE 7/21/17 - STILL ROCKS
I've gotten more use out of this thing than I first envisioned. I have a Samsung Galaxy S8 and can easily access my Google Drive files that I create and edit on the Chromebook via Goggle Docs. It's still nice and snappy; I have Amazon Prime music running in one tab, working on a Google Docs file in another and browsing Reddit or searching something on a third tab and there's no hesitation. I've enabled the beta build and enjoy several Google Play Store applications. I added an SD card which has expanded on the 16GB of storage. I'm getting very used to the multiple finger shortcuts on the touch pad when navigating Chrome. For instance: putting 2 finger tips on the touch pad and swiping left or right will act as the forward or back button. Also, "clicking" on a link by using 2 fingers and pressing on the touch pad, you bring up a menu to open in a new tab among other things. I watch Netflix and HBO Now and can definitely notice the lack of 1080p but it's a "get what you pay for" situation, and I knew that going in. This thing is still fantastic for what it is. If you want a proper laptop then buy one -- this is a Chromebook. I'll be back to give another update in a few months.

... a Chromebook now for three years and am totally satisfied. I bought this This Samsung 11
By Douglas Willis
I have been using a Chromebook now for three years and am totally satisfied. I bought this This Samsung 11.6" as a replacement for an older Chromebook that is showing its age a little. For the price you can't beat a Chromebook. I do 99% of my work on a Chromebook. Chromebooks are light weight and start up immediately and are very easy to use. I've gotten to where I despise Windows computers due to their bulk and all of the crashes and problems I've had over the years with Windows.
My old Chromebook is an Acer and I've had absolutely no problems with it. I chose to purchase a Samsung Chromebook this time just to try out a different company and because it was inexpensive ( I paid $189.00). To be honest, I like the feel of the Acer keyboard a little better than this Samsung, but that's probably because I'm so used to the Acer. I've used the Acer so much that I've worn off the letters of several keys. This Samsung works as expected and is a good, basic Chromebook.

I love this Chromebook! The keyboard is easy to use, and there is no external noise to contend with. All that was necessary for set up was turning it on and logging into google account, exactly as advertised!
I use a computer, primarily for internet access and saving/posting photos. It is fantastic for the things that I need a computer for.
Defiantly well worth the money & then some. I highly recommend the Samsung Chromebook for browsing the internet, and for note taking.
I couldn't be happier with this product!
