I like the design of the Chromebook. It's really light, a good size & the battery life is great! It boots up really fast & is therefore able to change user accounts in less than a minute, which is really useful if you share your computer like me. The keyboard has a nice feel & layout which makes typing quick & easy. Browsing online is generally quick. The lack of lots of programs like you would usually have makes finding things quick and simple & keeps the computer tidy. Overall great value for money, but please see all the bugbears I've listed if you want to buy with your eyes open! This Chromebook won't revolutionise your online life!!!
There are actually quite a few drawbacks to this product, that although I was aware of before buying I was being optimistic & hoped it would still be the computer for me!
...Firstly, the tracker pad. It really isn't good. I tried for a couple of months to get used to it, but it's just too frustrating & I've resorted to a mouse. It's really slow esp if you're trying to scroll down & the small size stops you moving the pointer across the screen quickly enough.
The next major issue is the reliance on Google apps, so many things I use regularly I can't get for this device incl Android apps. I tried to download iTunes just to update something for my phone & it won't work on here. I can't get a BBCiPlayer app to Chromecast to TV, I have to cast the whole computer which means I can't double screen. Sounds petty but there are many other examples where the limited app availability means I can't use my Chromebook. Some of the android apps are annoying to use, like the only way to check a calendar is to load the google calendar app, which is time consuming compared to clicking the clock & getting a quick overview of dates, which you can do on any regular PC. The google photos is also really poor. Since you can't save photos to the computer (no storage) you have to save them to this app, but it only loads a handful at a time which is seriously time consuming & labour intensive. Despite me feeding back to Google many times they don't seem to want to change the upload system so you can simply select all or drag & drop. I have all my photos on mem cards at the mo as I have no patients to upload them. Which is really annoying as I have hundreds I need to edit & organise. But this computer & app are making a process which is usually mundane & time consuming into an excruciating one!
There are some new useful keys on the keyboard, but they have taken away a lot of useful ones like 'delete' 'home' 'end' ' cap lock' & 'print screen' all of which I find really useful ESPECIALLY the delete button. I would prefer to have all of the above buttons to almost all of the new, except the volume & lightness controls which are really useful.
The screen regularly freezes, but since you can reboot the system quickly & your tabs are saved, this isn't too annoying.
...Sorry for moaning so much, in general it is good value & better than the Nexus I bought a few years back which was an even bigger disappointment. For the money I would recommend buying this item, but be aware of above issues & if you think they'll be too annoying perhaps invest in a more expensive product.
