The screen is very sharp and bright. Adaptive brightness (light sensor) is enabled by default, but can be easily turned off in Samsung Settings (FN+F1). At full brightness, it is quite bright (and power-hogging). I have mine set at about 60% and that’s plenty good in well-lit places. Wide viewing angle as well. However, beware of reflections on glossy screen.

Love the fastness & Looks. It’s on and off in 4-5 sec. I don’t see this laptop often on the public places , so it is worthier. It’s super slim and sexy. You gotta see it in real, the photo doesn’t show the beauty enough. I have this for a month , had no issue.

Samsung Chromebook

The Samsung Chromebook is a new computer that helps you get everyday things done faster and easier.

The Chromebook comes with leading Google products, like Search, Gmail, YouTube and Hangouts, so you can work, play, and do whatever you want, right out of the box.

You can easily share it with multiple people- switching accounts takes seconds, and everyone gets their own files, apps and settings. And it’s simple to use. There’s no setup, and your files are automatically backed up in the cloud. At just 2.4 pounds, 0.7 inches thin, and with over 6.5 hours of battery life, the Samsung Chromebook can go anywhere you go. It’s built to stay cool, so it doesn’t need a fan and runs silently. It also includes 100GB of free Google Drive storage (for 2 years), a built-in webcam, and dual band Wi-Fi to make it easy to connect to wireless networks.

This computer is great. It runs from Google’s systems. The play store is separate form the Chromestore, which the Chromebook uses. I have downloaded a few apps from googles play store, but not all the apps run on this computer.

I use this computer for word processing a lot, and its great because you can use it offline or online. When you type offline, then log on it connects your drive (from computer) to your drive online. So saving is easy. It uses Google Chrome to browser.

Making a Great Cheap Android tablet

Can Ematic, a virtually unknown tablet manufacturer, make a dent in the Android tablet space? Will average consumers even know about the 7-inch tablet? Ematic entered the Android tablet fray yesterday when it announced the inexpensive eGlide Prism.

Making a great cheap Android tablet

Priced as low as $157, the device runs Android 4.0 and features a 7-inch 800×480-pixel resolution display. Powered by a 1GHz processor, it also brings 8GB flash memory, 512MB RAM, and a front-facing Webcam. While it’s certainly not the type of hardware to contend with a Galaxy Tab 2, it’s in that interesting space between a Kindle Fire and a “real” tablet.

Then again…Over the last year, however, I’ve noticed that there’s a market for people who just want a tablet for Web browsing and social media for when they’re at home or for those on-the-go moments. In fact, I’ve run into a number of friends who’ve considered buying or have even purchased tablets from unknown and unproven companies. And typically, they’re pretty excited to so.

Fair enough. Indeed, I’m sure that this happens all over the country as consumers don’t care to spend $500 for a name-brand device. So should a tablet like the eGlide Prism find its way into bargain bins and outlet stores, I suspect it would see moderate success. And given that the tablet offers a 3D video experience (with glasses), this might be considered a selling point for some.

With its $250 price tag and brand recognition, I’d say that Samsung’s forthcoming Galaxy Tab 2.0 7 is a better step in the budget direction. A few months down the road, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Sammy touting record sales for it given that it’s much more in line with what consumers expect out of a 7-inch tablet.

Consider that the Tab 2.0 7 has more ‘ than Amazon’s Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet and educated consumers can easily justify the $50 price difference. So price does matterAbsolutely, Android tablets prices need to continue to drop if Google hopes to replicate the success found with smartphones. Heck, even CEO Larry Page recognizes that Apple has a grip on the upper end of the market. Speaking during the company’s recent quarterly earnings, Page indicated that Google would be focusing on the low-cost spectrum.

Is the eGlide Prism ahead of the curve? Not exactly. While interest from the Android community remains high following the company’s announcement yesterday, I can’t see the tablet sticking in the minds of general consumers, at least for now. Likewise, while companies like eMatic, Sylvania, and X10 may enjoy decent sales for now, ultimately they bigger players will squeeze them out. Yet, that’s not to say you won’t see these guys at the drug store or other discount destination.

In the short term, Google is rumored to be working with Asus on a 7-inch tablet that may come in somewhere between $150 and $200 when it arrives in July. Expected to a pure Ice Cream Sandwich experience, this presumed Nexus tablet should far outsell the no-name devices. If Google follows through and blankets retail outlets and online stores with their device, we’ll be talking about explosive growth.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

The announcement that Samsung’s follow-up to its Galaxy Tab 10.1 would be receiving some downgrades from the previous entry, filled with a mixture confusion and disappointment. I just couldn’t wrap my head around why the sequel to one of the premiere Android tablets would launch with a less impressive spec list than its predecessor.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

Today, Samsung revealed that the Tab 2 10.1 would be released on May 13th for $400. That’s $100 lower than the original Tab 10.1’s list price and it fills the logic hole I believe Samsung was falling into, I’m still not 100 percent on board.

I’ll get to that later though. First let’s address the details of my initial disappointment.

So why the disappointment?OK, let’s get the disappointment out of the way. The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 trades in its 2-megapixel front camera for a VGA one and while it retains its 3-megapixel rear camera, the LED support light has been exorcised. Also, the tablet isn’t quite as thin as the first gen’s svelte body and in it’s slightly heavier. Also, there’s no 32GB config and only a 16GB storage version. Honestly, that’s pretty much it as disappointment goes. All the other changes are kind of plusses.

OK, what are the other differences?The new device still houses a 1GHz dual-core CPU, although it’s likely not a Tegra 2 (Samsung didn’t confirm) and Samsung smartly adds microSD-supported memory expansion up to 32GB. The speakers are larger and have been moved to the edge of the left and right side bezel (in landscape mode). The dock connector, volume rocker, power/sleep button, and headphone jack all seem to be located in about the same places.

The IR blaster found on the Tabs 7.7 and 7.0 Plus makes its way to the Tab 2 10.1 and in conjunction with Peel’s Smart Remote app, helps to turn your tablet into a remote control for your TV.

Oh and one more difference…The Tab 2 10.1 will be Samsung’s first 10-inch tablet to ship with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0.3 to be precise) installed.

Samsung’s Touchwiz UX skin of course is included with custom Samsung apps and that handy Task Manager shortcut.

Performance, comfort, and extrasAccessing and scrolling through Web pages as well as navigating the OS all felt responsive enough but, kind of lagged on the hotel’s Wi-Fi we were connected to. No egregious performance issues, however.

The Samsung proprietary PLS-based screen sports a 1,280 by 800 resolution and during our brief time using the device, not surprisingly, delivered wide viewing angles and richer color than what we’re used to on IPS panels most tablets use.

The device is capable of full 1080p playback at 30fps, and of course includes support for GPS, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0.

The tablet feels light, comfortable with rounded corners and sports a titanium silver finish on it its backside.

Final thoughtsSo, what’s the rub here? Well there’s no “official rub”. $400 at 16GB isn’t a bad price for the Tab 2 10.1, but when you consider the fact that it’s pretty much the same as the Tab 10.1 give or take a few features; not to mention that the Tab 10.1 now be found for as low as $428, it’s difficult to not be a bit disappointed.
