Port

Port:
"Good buy for what it cost gave it to my mother for Christmas my only problem with it is its basicly a tablet with a USB port gets great battery life and the fact that it has built in blue tooth is great syncs right up to sound bars and stereo headsets"
_
"I also tried to install new apps like Evernote and while no fault of anyone - it's just a rough port from Android and unfortunately as an iOS and Mac OS X user, it really pales in comparison."

_
"The only build complaint is the cheesy power connector."
_
"other last bits - the power nib on the back seems super flimsy and seems like it might crack easily if you hit it the wrong way... the power brick is larger than i thought ( i guess i've gotten spoiled with how small the Air adaptor is now...)oh - for some reason you can't sleep the unit while the SD is in."
_
"for that pop upI have yet to find any problem with computing power or speed with this CB3, it's quite impressive even when used to more powerful computers."
_
"If you are used to tablets and smartphones which use the now universal micro USB cable, it may be disappointing to have to carry the larger and heavier power supply the Chromebook uses."
_
"It comes up with your pages pretty quickly, although presumably to save power and bandwidth I notice that it usually waits until you open a tab for the first time before it loads the page."
_
"The good old power down and up got over that and allowed me to configure and login."
_
"i rely on battery power a lot, so i'll take that advantage any day."
