Samsung Chromebook 2 (XE500C12-K01US)

 

With more than 9 hours battery life and a strong feature set, Samsung's Chromebook 2 is a very good value for $250.

Long battery life. Includes exclusive apps and complimentary services. Improved keyboard over predecessor. Solid performance.

Only 2GB of RAM. MicroSD card slot makes standard SD card use impossible.

Conclusion While the Samsung Chromebook 2 offers some solid improvements over the Samsung Chromebook Series 3, it's now just one among many, as the category has grown from only a few to a two-fisted handful. The Chromebook 2 does have a lot to offer,...

Samsung Chromebook 2 (XE500C12) Notebook Review

 

Long, cool, and quiet. Compared to last year's model, the Samsung Chromebook 2 is largely the same in terms of features and appearance. However, the manufacturer has improved upon one key aspect that propels this updated model near the top of the...

Incredible battery life, Runs very cool, No system noise, USB 3.0 and HDMI-out, Small and lightweight, No creaking; Strong lid, Inexpensive

Display not bright enough for comfortable outdoor use, No SIM slot, No keyboard backlight, Plastic construction, Non-removable battery

The Samsung Chromebook 2 is a no-frills Chromebook that performs well in core aspects where target users are more likely to care about. Build quality feels thick, the keyboard and touchpad work reliably, and the notebook runs quiet, cool, and with a...

Samsung Chromebook

 

I would recommend this to anyone, and I hope that if you go the refurbished route, that your experience would be as good as mine was.

I had some reservations, but went ahead and purchased a Refurbished Chromebook, thinking I wouldn't mind a few scuffs or signs of wear, as long as it functioned well. What I received was what looked like a brand new product with no appearance that it...

I don't have a single negative thing to say.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very nice, but delicate power connector and I hate trackpads

 

I spent an hour typing up a review, hit submit and got dumped back into the login screen. Had to reenter. I am suddenly very grumpy.

Very nice keyboard. Bay Trail Celeron plenty fast, has no fan. ChromeOS surprisingly usable even when no internet available. I run in developer mode with Ubuntu 14.4 under Crouton, easily switches between ChromeOS and Crouton using a comon Linux...

Macbook air styling brings compromises: a small power connector and no access to the battery. Power connector barrel is a dainty 2.5mm diameter, versus 5.5mm on my old Acer netbook. My connector failed out of the box (intermittent, even when fully...
