Samsung Chromebook Series 3 Review

 

Just like set top boxes, which are dedicated devices for streaming video content, the Chromebook is a dedicated web browsing appliance. It is an inexpensive piece of hardware, running on a free Operating System, with free software and updates (OS,...

Circling back to the initial question, I found it to be “good enough”, especially for $250. That is coming from someone who owns a MacBook Air and mostly run, you guessed it, the Chrome browser on it. Are you considering a Chromebook? What is holding...

Samsung Chromebook 3: Cheaper, more productive alternative to a tablet

 

This Chromebook is perfect for someone who wants a lightweight, portable tablet-like machine that has a keyboard.

Better performance than many tablets ; Sturdy construction

Takes time to adapt to the keyboard ; No physical right-click option

Samsung Chromebook Series 3 (XE303C12)

 

The Samsung Chromebook Series 3 (XE303C12) may be the Chromebook that really takes off. With a price low enough to entice the curious and the parts needed to zip through Web browsing, the new Chromebook is what we've wanted Google to deliver all along,...

Unbeatable price. Slim and light. ARM processor provides zippy performance without sacrificing battery life. Physical keyboard and clamshell design

Offline access and storage is still limited. Keyboard comes with a learning curve

The Samsung Chromebook Series 3 (XE303C12) laptop delivers what we wanted from Google all along—a cheap, portable way to get online, with nothing getting in the way.

Samsung Chromebook Series 3 (XE303C12) Review

 

While previous Chromebooks were too pricey and limited in functionality, the Samsung Chromebook Series 3 comes closest to capturing Google's original vision. With a cost of $249, this notebook gets people online on the cheap and provides a comfortable...

Ultra-light design, Long battery life, Very affordable, Improved Chrome OS

Relatively dim display, Most features require Internet connection, Can't handle many games in Chrome Store

Samsung Chromebook (XE303) Review: Testing ARM's Cortex A15

 

Google announced the Chrome OS project two years ago, and with it came the first Chromebook: the CR-48. The Chrome OS concept seemed revolutionary at the time. In 2010 we were well into the latest round of questioning whether today's PCs were fast...

Samsung Chromebook review:

 

With Google Chromebooks, price really does make all the difference.

The Samsung Chromebook is a lightweight, thin, and inexpensive laptop for those times when all you need is a powerful browser.

The Chromebook's low price comes out in its build quality and performance.

The $249 Samsung Chromebook is a good extra computer for cloud-loving Google-centric Web users.

Samsung Chromebook (XE303C12, Wi-Fi)

 

Buying a budget-priced computing device is a whole lot more complicated than it used to be, especially if you need one with an actual, physical keyboard. Low-cost netbooks are on the outs in favor of tablets like the Google Nexus 7 by Asus and...

Extremely low price ; 100GB of Google storage for two years included in price ; Excellent keyboard ; Light and slim

Limited functionality when away from Wi-Fi ; Battery life should be better ; Screen has viewing-angle issues

Its functionality is still limited (though improved), and we wish the battery life were longer, given the low-power CPU, but Samsung’s $249 Chromebook is an enticing low-cost, productivity-focused alternative to netbooks and tablets for those who do...

Samsung Chromebook Review ($249 ARM-based model)

 

The is one of the thinnest, lightest, and least expensive laptops available today. It's the third Chromebook from Samsung, which means it's a laptop designed to run Google's Chrome OS operating system. The $249 laptop is also the first Chromebook to...

Any apps or data installed outside of Chrome OS won’t be synchronized with your Google account… and if you muck with the system too much you might cause problems. But Google provides software that lets you restore a Chromebook to its original factory...
