Interesting Laptop

Chromebook was supposed to be a new form of using computing, an attempt to make computing as a utility. As such I always wanted to own one and experiment with it and try to attempt and see if can change my work to fit this. It is an interesting experience.

Calling it just a browser is a gross simplification. It does play videos, there is offline storage and there are tons of offline-apps to help you use this system. YOU DO NOT NEED INTERNET ALL THE TIME.

As mentioned above, it is a differen...

Sold it after disappointing experience from HP and Flipkart

I was hoping for great things as my previous machine was a Samsung ARM Chromebook. But I was largely disappointed. Even considered returning it. Anyways here are the issues...

Battery life is rated 9 hours but I could only come near if I had wireless turned off. I barely get 3-4 hours on my regular work usage. 5-6 hours of watching videos with headsets. Managed to get 8 hours while listening to music but with display mostly going off during no activity period.

Resolution is awful for a 14...

Excellent experience with Chrome OS, HP and Flipkart

Read lot of reviews before purchasing the HP Chromebook. My advice is not to go with most who rated "One star" without knowing the product. The analogy is like buying a different category product like Mahindra Reva and comparing it with regular cars. Chromebook is a different segment and not to be compared with many uses of laptops.

Understand the limitations:
1. Out of the box, it comes with Chrome OS which is Google product and tied with Google web apps. Chrome OS, though based on Linux, i...

An Outstanding Device

Screen: Good size, easy to adjust brightness with dedicated up and down keys at the top of the keyboard (just like Apple). I'm reading that the Chromebook 11 version has a nicer display and that the 11 was actually co-created with Google vs. the 14 which was supposedly designed solely by HP.

Appearance: I got the machine in white. Snow White to be exact. It looks awesome on the kitchen counter. The aluminum cover around the keyboard looks great and reminds me of much more expensive Apple mac...

Too Pricey a Gadget

It seems to be too pricey a gadget to have at this price point. Big companies like Apple and samsung are offering better configured and more durable tablets at this price point. i dont know which segment of customers this is aimed at because at this price point today the market is so competitive that you can get laptops and if one pay 5-10 k more one can get a very good laptop today with gaming cababilities and Hd content which is for one n all.
this product still uses celeron processors whi...

The foreseeable future

Coming from a Macbook Pro and then the Alienware M14X-R2, I just wanted something simple, portable and still powerful enough to carry out most day-to-day activities. Due to my previous experiences, I also needed better battery life out of my purchase than the usual half-a-working-day, after which I'd be running around trying to find a vacant plug point.

This product did not disappoint on any of those fronts. First off, I feel like I need to address a few issues that the others have pointed o...

2.5 years and still working like a new chromebook.

I love this laptop and its so handy that I want to use it for all my work. After a year of buying I still love Chromebook. Google product is always awesome.

Update - 14-Oct-2017 - Its been more than 2 years and this product is still standing strong with no issues at all. Hope Google pixelbook is of the same quality and standard.

Great for newbies.

I got this for my Dad since he is simply unable to work with 'standard' windows notebooks and he only checks his mail and works on some google docs and uses a few apps. For this kind of user, a Chromebook is best gift you can make. You don't have to keep giving tech support since even dummies can use this. It boots up instantly and gives you all the Google apps. A power user will hate this laptop. A computing newbie will be comfortable using this. The laptop is surprisingly fast for its specs...

Truly amazing product !

Soon people will realize they don't need all that microsoft crap.
Chromebooks are simple and perfect. All chromebook need is a good mid point of great price and great hardware.
???I cannot remember the last time I used a notebook while Internet was NOT available. Must be years ago. Internet is everywhere.
The problem is Microsoft still thinks it's the 90's. CD and DVD are two mediums that should be permitted to finally die the death they so well deserve. There is rarely any place you can go...

A niche laptop, not for everyone

Tell you frankly. Chromebook is not for everyone. But the simplicity of the OS is the main reason I bought it for my parents. I don't use Windows at home and with me away from home, Linux is a bit hassle to maintain. This is the reason I opted to buy the Chromebook for my parents. They mainly use the web browser so this plays absolutely perfect for them. Yes, one would agree the price is slightly higher than what you get in the US but Google sells it at a subsidized price over there. Overall ...
