          Comments about Samsung Series 5 XE550C22-A01US 12.1" Chromebook Computer (Wi-Fi Only):

          I have experience from using both Windows laptops and Mac books, but I decided to try a Chromebook when I needed to buy a new laptop. I went with the Samsung 550 as I was a bit hesitant of paying $[$] for the Google Chromebook Pixel as my first Chromebook. $[$] for the Samsung 550 felt much more reasonable. And after about 10 days of usage I can say I am extremely pleased. Whatever software I can't use (Skype, my previous accounting software) I will find replacements for, rather than finding a computer that can run them. The benefits are clear - super fast startup (5 secs in a cold start, less than 1 s from standby), long battery time (5 hours +), extremely quiet, and, primarily - the essence of SIMPLICITY. Nothing to install, nothing to uninstall, nothing to organize (besides your files in Google Drive), just open the laptop and get going. This is now my only computer, and I can't see that I need anything else. It's a great buy and I definitely recommend it. If you have piles of cash and want better and brighter screen, back-lit keyboard, and slightly better & faster hardware, go with the Chromebook Pixel, but if you are new to Chromebooks, and want a great value for money, simple Chromebook, buy this one, you won't regret it!

          Comments about Samsung Series 5 XE550C22-A01US 12.1" Chromebook Computer (Wi-Fi Only):

          When I first received my new Chromebook I was a little dubious at the size of the screen (12.1"). After using it for a few minutes I determined that the graphics were so clear it didn't matter too much, and after all, I really bought it for the sole purpose of surfing the web and blogging. In addition, the smallness comes in handy when I want to tote it around in my purse!

          The only other problem I have had so far is that I can't download software applications like Spotify or InstaGrille because they're not supported by the OS. Luckily the Chromebook store has plenty of apps so I can still do the type of things on the Chromebook as I can on my PC.

          Before I ordered this Chromebook I ordered another model from B&H, but because it was back ordered for 2 months I cancelled and ordered this one. B&H did inform me of the problem but not for almost a month, which made me very worried.

          Once I ordered this one is arrive promptly and overall I am satisfied with my purchase.

            Comments about Samsung Series 5 XE550C22-A01US 12.1" Chromebook Computer (Wi-Fi Only):

            I got my Chromebook about two weeks ago and it is exactly what I was after. We just got our internet updated and added a good wi-fi router that provides a strong signal throughout our home. The Chromebook set-up was a little odd but there are good help forums available to get walk you through the initial set-up.

            This device is well built and is very comfortable to use. It requires an internet connection to be very functional because most of the things that you store will be in the cloud (I use Google drive all the time now). There are offline apps but I really haven't needed those since I primarily use it where there is wi-fi available.

            This is just so handy because it gives you the full keyboard that is very comfortable to use. I do not like using the keyboard on my phone nearly as well as this keyboard so a tablet was not a good option for me. Tablets (iPad, Android Tablet, etc.) kind of feel like big smartphones to me without the phone part and that was not what I was after.

            We keep our Chromebook in our living room where we spend much of our time so it is at our fingertips when we want it. It starts instantly so it is more convenient than the laptop I use at work and the battery life is long (It seems to be about 8 hours or so).

            My wife loves using it for Facebook and Pinterest, where she used to use her phone all the time, because of the keyboard and the larger display.

            I just ordered a Display Port to HDMI converter so I can hook this up to my TVs and watch YouTube videos, etc.

            If you are ready to change the way you work a little by using Google's cloud offerings, you will love this Chromebook. No worries about viruses, automatic updates and no long boot-up times make this a perfect portable device.

            This is light weight, super fast and has all the connections that I need to do almost everything I do on my stationary PC.

              This thing is so simple, lightweight and affordable compared to Ultrabooks. If you primarily use your computer to surf the net, you can go wrong with this extremely fast computer especially if you have a desktop or laptop for the occasional times you need to work offline.

                  Chromebooks have been getting a lot of negative feedback that seems misplaced. Chromebooks are very limited in their utility, but what they do offer is a fantastic experience for those that need that niche. This device is best used for students that have a main PC desktop and need a good cheap typing laptop.Pros:Amazing build for $ including:Fantastic Keyboard.Good battery.Good screen.Cons:You can only run google docs when you're not connected.

                    I am a college student and decided to get a new computer, but i wanted it to be really different from windows or mac.

                    Chromebook is really nice, I love the feel of it and the keyboard is amazing. I just love typing on it.

                    It is fast and does the job well.

                    Also B&H service was really good. I live in Canada and got my chromebook in in less then 3 full days.

                    I would really recommand this computer.

                      Comments about Samsung Series 5 XE550C22-A01US 12.1" Chromebook Computer (Wi-Fi Only):

                      G'day,
                      I understand that mine is not the general use-case for a chromebook (I do web dev) but I like having a small, light tool that I can take with me as I move between offices, and even just moving from room to room around the house.

                      I got the original series 5 about six months ago, and found that it was a positive influence on my workflow (dominated by secureshell, cloud9 and webkit). I guess most devs like to hack at and customise their blade, but I'm warming to the idea of a standardised tool that just gets the job done: this is the first machine I've owned without wasting a day here and there patching kernels, installing drivers or chasing bugs.

                      Then my motherinlaw needed a new lappy fast, and I handed my series 5 over to her: she's off grid, in a small bush home, with no tech savvy, so the small notebook with low power demands suited her basic email needs well; she's more like the target customer.

                      Meanwhile, I took on the opportunity to upgrade. I find this new model, the 550, is a vast improvement. The keyboard and trackpad are so much better to use - the trackpad in particular is a significant improvement. I also think the display is better (though I'm not sure if its the same component?) : Definitely at this interface level, the new 550 is a great upgrade. The body is a bit sturdier and solid.
                      But it's not just look and feel that are an improvement: the faster processor and extra RAM certainly make a difference, which I find particularly noticeable when running heavy debug sessions across both client and server. I was worried that this extra power would mean much less plug free hours, but I enjoy 5-6hrs of work without wires.

                      If you've already decided the chromebook suits your workflow, I highly recommend the 550 as a great off the shelf device to run it.
