The Samsung Chromebook is a new computer that helps you get everyday things done faster and easier. It starts in seconds, has virus protection built-in, and runs your favorite Google apps plus thousands more. 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.

The Google Chromebook has arrived at stores. You might call the timing uncanny. PC giant Lenovo signaled this week that it sees no future in a similar design–the Windows Netbook.
Samsung’s Chromebook, now available at stores and sales sites like Best Buy and Amazon, runs Google’s Chrome operating system on top of an Intel dual-core Atom processor. Like its cousin, the traditional 10-inch Netbook, it is light at just over 3 pounds and about three-quarters of an inch thick.
A Wi-Fi-only Chromebook costs $429, while the 3G version is priced at $499. Other hardware features include a 16GB solid-state drive and a 1,280×800 display (which Samsung states has a brightness of 300 cd/m2).
Which brings us back to the Netbook, which has been plagued by the opposite problem. The Netbook tried to do too much with too little hardware. Windows 7–designed for more powerful Intel chips–never ran well on the Atom processor. And Netbooks have always been overshadowed by more powerful but inexpensive Windows laptops and, more recently, tablets like the iPad.
Lenovo, for its part, sees a future in tablets. “Netbooks are pretty much over,” Lenovo president and chief operating officer Rory Read said when speaking (subscription required) to Dow Jones this week. In the Netbook’s stead, the PC giant will launch two Android tablets and one Windows tablet later this year.
And recent market research from Gartner supports the rise of the tablet and fall of the Netbook. “Mini-notebook [Netbook] shipments have noticeably contracted over the last several quarters, and this has substantially reduced overall mobile PC unit growth,” Ranjit Atwal, research director at Gartner, said in a statement earlier this month.
Will Chromebooks with a more robust Chrome OS–i.e. able to do more local tasks (sans Internet) and better at handling some of the gotchas cited above–succeed? An interesting question because an improved Chromebook may actually provide a decent alternative to a tablet.
