Performance

Performance:
"It's on the cloud- The white color of this laptop is pretty easy to show wear: it can look dirty after a few weeks of use- This is a very inexpensive device so don't expect high-quality graphics or performance, it gets the job done and is priced very fairly."
_
"It is still a very good battery life, but not an upgrade from the C720.The screen, while bigger, at 13.3 inches compared to the C720's 11 inch screen, is nowhere near as clear, sharp, or bright as the screen from the C720.Finally, the performance was disappointing, considering that this Chromebook is slightly more expensive than the C720, I expected its performance to be at least on par with that of the C720, but I was disappointed to find that it was slower, lagged more, and would actually occasionally freeze and crash (which almost never happened with the C720).For those reasons, I decided to return it and go back to the C720."
_
"This is the first ever chromebook I have bought and I am quite pleased with its performance and sleek looks."

"- NVIDIA Tegra K1 mobile processor: discussed already- NVIDIA Kepler GPU with 192 NVIDIA CUDA cores (by the way, CUDA stands for Compute Unified Device Architecture and it's something that NVIDIA developed)- 4GB of RAM: most Chromebooks come with 2GB which is good because they operate with so little overhead but 4GB translate into being able to have more tabs open without a significant degradation in performance, so it's a good thing."
_
"Amazing battery life, anemic performance (which is not all that noticeable under *most* circumstances), and excellent portability."
_
"App and game performance is good, battery life is great, and it's totally plug and play."

Price

Price:
"I tried to save money opting for a $250 lightweight traveler; big mistake; should've spent the same (or double) on an entry-level laptop with a stable operating system and even average performance, because now I'm going to have to replace this device anyway."
_
"Based on what I read, I thought 2GB would be sufficient and the price leap for 4GB was excessive."
_
"I regret now not forking out the extra money for more RAM."
_
"It's on the cloud- The white color of this laptop is pretty easy to show wear: it can look dirty after a few weeks of use- This is a very inexpensive device so don't expect high-quality graphics or performance, it gets the job done and is priced very fairly."
_
"A few weeks later the same problem just happened again....horrible...don't waste your money."
_
"First, the positives, the screen is good for the price and the battery life is really a big surprise."
_
"I got this laptop for my mom so she could have an inexpensive, lightweight and easy-to-use laptop to use for work."
_
"However speakers are weak, in a weird place, only one USB port, but other than that it's a good quality affordable laptop good for college students."
_
"On first blush the screen left a little to be desired, but for the price range it is reasonably great."
_
"It's a great chromebook for the price."

Screen

Screen:
"It doesn't have the best screen, but its not bad, either."
_
"It is still a very good battery life, but not an upgrade from the C720.The screen, while bigger, at 13.3 inches compared to the C720's 11 inch screen, is nowhere near as clear, sharp, or bright as the screen from the C720.Finally, the performance was disappointing, considering that this Chromebook is slightly more expensive than the C720, I expected its performance to be at least on par with that of the C720, but I was disappointed to find that it was slower, lagged more, and would actually occasionally freeze and crash (which almost never happened with the C720).For those reasons, I decided to return it and go back to the C720."
_
"I was also disappointed with the brightness clearness of the screen but again would have tolerated if it had functioned properly."
_
"For example, with the washed out and darker screen, it does make the font a bit hard to read at times unless you increase the font size by zooming in."
_
"My daughter dropped it and while nothing was permanently damaged I did have to snap the screen back on to the base and snap the border around the screen back together a bit."
_
"First, the positives, the screen is good for the price and the battery life is really a big surprise."
_
"Greatest computer I have every purchased, fast, great screen."
_
"Again, this is a great laptop functioning laptop, the screen just bugged me."
_
"It really took away from the great screen resolution and made editing photos difficult."
_
"Other people may not mind it if you're not depending on a 10 10 screen to edit that perfect picture."

Size

Size:
"The size of this laptop is small but not tiny which is good for me, who is used to a laptop that is over 15 inches."
_
"The size is definitely great, not to large and not to small."
_
"The perfect size."
_
"Sleek, sexy, dependable, it feels solid, has a great lightness to it, and is a convenient size (not too bulky and big)."
_
"However, if this is your first Chromebook that you are purchasing, and an important criteria for you is bigger screen size, then I would recommend getting this laptop, as it is adequate for most people (as long as you do not need to have many tabs open at once).Overall, I found it to be a slight step back from Acer's C720 (which I still think is an excellent Chromebook laptop)."

Speed

Speed:
"slow and port in back are inconvenient."

_
"When this happens, google doc is painfully slow."
_
"Greatest computer I have every purchased, fast, great screen."
_

_
"Starts up fast, easy setup and easy to use out of the box."
_
"Speed is fast, looks great, battery lasts forever so far and it's super cheap, what more can a girl ask for?"
