"So i bought the chromebook but not through amazon, i haven't even had mine for a year and the battery is horrible, it decides when it is and isn't going to work, the screen has to be angled a certain way for it to work, after 5 months or so and there a many white lines going across my screen that wont go away and the warranty i purchased wont cover it."
_
"Unfortunately, the battery life suffers."

Boot

Boot:
"My 13 year daughter Megan was frustrated with slow boot resume times on her 2 year old Acer netbook which runs Windows 7 with Microsoft Office."
_
"Very light, quick to boot, the only non-positive thing I have to say is that I'm having problems with getting the audio to work when playing .mkv files."
_
"I love the instant boot up as my laptop continues to boot slower and slower as it ages even after system wipes re-installs."
_
"Pretty nifty little chromebook - if all you need is Chrome browser & a few basic apps, this laptop will serve you well - it boots up quickly, runs well for what it can handle - I'm a happy camper :)"
_
"For the geeks out there:Was able to dual boot Linux (Ubuntu) using external SD card."
_
"The $299 Samsung Chromebook 2 looks slick, boots quickly and has everything you need to make the most of Google's budding Chrome OS."

Connection

Connection:
"The Chromebook does not connect to SSIDs that are hidden."
_
"**UPDATE** The wifi connection delay problem has been fixed as of Chrome release 38."
_
"The worst thing for an internet-only laptop is the WIFI connection delay -- coming out of sleep is quick as you would expect for a Chromebook, but then WIFI takes an extra 15 seconds before reconnecting to a previously established point."
_
"I was able to connect my printer and print labels and everything! "
_
"Neither have I been able to connect it to an HDMI device."
_
"I am rarely away from WiFi and when I am my phones hotspot integrates very well so that has not been an issue...just be aware that without an internet connection this unit is pretty much a paperweight."
_
"If connected, it's a nice little machine to check email or do basic tasks."
_
"Perfect for taking notes in college and connecting to the Internet between classes."
