I wouldn't recommend buying it.
If you think this is a computer, you have been lied to and are mistaken. The Chromebook is a web browser and glorified typewriter. It can do nothing else. What you can do on the Chrome browser on a real computer is all you are limited to on the Chromebook. Anything else is a fantasy. The worst part, the ARM dual core A15 and Mali GPU is very overrated. The CPU and "GPU" is so underpowered, that the functions the Chromebook can perform lag, video stutters, flash games take minutes to load and when they finally do they stutter and lag as well. The desktop area is just a picture, you can't make shortcuts to anything, but it makes sense since there is nothing to link to. Don't be fooled by all the "satisfied" customers who "knew what they were getting into when they ordered their Chromebook." Those people probably never owned a real computer or even a tablet and this is a step up from the calculator and typewriter they were using before. If you have $300 to spend, buy a tablet or a decent netbook. Or, spend a few buck more and get a real laptop. Whatever you do, do not buy this steaming pile of junk. Read More
