Samsung Series 5 Chromebook 550 (XE550C22-H01)


The new Samsung Series 5 Chromebook 550 (XE550C22-H01) laptop is a speedy 3G-equipped portable Web terminal. It works well in that regard, but there are other netbooks and even ultraportables that do more for less money.

Quick bootup into Chrome. Full rich Website support, including Flash. Chrome Extensions and setting carry over from PC-based browsing. 100MB 3G free a month for two years. Verizon 3G. Less Malware to worry about. Ethernet port

Locked into Google account. Google Docs/Drive isn?t Office. Useless without Internet connection. HDMI/DVI/VGA requires an adapter

The Laptop of the new era!


Since past summer I have this Chromebook and I am really happy with it, I will stick to the Chromebook Philosophy and other Google software because they really innovate and improve the way we use computers. If I just use a Windows running computer now,...

No Virus ; No Backup needed ; No Update needed (OS and Apps updates seamlessly) ; Install/Removing of Apps fast and effective ; Boots/goes off in seconds ; Great keyboard ; Good screen ; Handy function keys ; Improve himself with the time ; Nice design...

No bluetooth ; Graphics apps need still to improve ; If you open more than 10 tabs + you have more than 10 extensions running it may be not so fast ; Compatibility of files (documents) and programs ; Not much "offline working" apps ; We still have to...

Fast & Great Laptop


This is a great Laptop for someone who does everything on the internet. It is super fast and you never have to worry about updating it or worrying about a virus because it has built in protection.

I have had my Chromebook 550 for about a week now and I absolutely love it. Some of the pros are. Really fast boot up. Super fast browsing even with 4-8 windows open. I tend to multi-task a lot. There are so many apps on the Chromebook web store that...

There are no cons for me. I knew this laptop is only a browser and that's all I needed it for. Plus I do a little blogging and read documents

Just what I wanted/needed


If you can get access to the internet just about anywhere you will go this is a great item to get...With all the space you can get through Google Drive and their other storage(Google Music with 20,000 song limit) the limited HD really isn't a...

Fast ; Light ; Good Battery Life

HD space is very limited but I knew that buying it

Consumer review by:



the keyboard is excellent, and is also simplified-- no "caps lock" or "scroll lock" or "num lock", no FN keys. Just nice big, spaced keys.

It just feels and looks... NICE. Nothing shows smudges or fingerprints. Starts up and shuts down incredibly fast. Chrome OS updated itself when I turned it on, I didn't even have to click anything. It is surprising how easy it is to use if you're used...

Would buy again, especially for less technically adept audiences. For Sys admins and programmers, keep that desktop around for doing the heavy work and use this for mobility.

Feels sturdy, despite all plastic construction ; Smooth action keyboard with good tactile response, comfortable to use for long periods ; Trackpad behaves well and smoothly ; Good video response, even on games/ hi-def movies

Price is a little high compared for what is offered hardware wise. Would be nice to see this drop by about a Benjamin ; Trackpad multi-finger gestures are quirky, right click is awkward to use as only reliable way to trigger is to use the alt-click...

pretty great


I use this a one of many computers. If this was your only computing device, you might feel limited. For the most part, it has everything you need and none of the junk you don't including ad-ware, carrier mandated crapware, a bunch of useless utilities...

boots in 5-6 seconds, if you ever need to reboot it. mostly is instant on and off via lid open/close. has all the features most people use, and more if you're a nerd like SSH and shell access at a keystroke. You can have multi shells open in chrome...

Battery life has suffered to the higher-powered CPU in this model. It would be perfect if it lasted for about 12 hrs

Consumer review by:



The bootup is extremely fast and the new Chrome OS is very easy to use. I thoroughly enjoy this product and recommend you buy it.
