"Google's never really been all "Drop what you're using and switch to Chrome OS" about the whole thing, but with this machine it seems to be more up-front about positioning it as a good extra inexpensive computer that lies around the house and can be used for quickly, easily, and securely handling the Web needs of different users. Especially those who've come to rely less and less on traditional installed software."

"The Samsung Chromebook Series 3 (XE303C12) may be the Chromebook that really takes off. With a price low enough to entice the curious and the parts needed to zip through Web browsing, the new Chromebook is what we've wanted Google to deliver all along, an affordable and portable way to hop online."

"It's a slim, light, cheap, long-lasting little laptop that, partly because really the only thing it does is run a web browser and isn't based on Windows, is very secure, and if you live your life in web apps such as Facebook and Google Docs (or think you could), or especially if you are already immersed in the Google ecosystem of Docs, Gmail, Calendars and more, it's worth considering. It comes with 100 GB of Google Drive free for 2 years."

"Once again, you're looking at a lightweight machine built from matte gray plastic. The whole thing feels compact, at 2.5 pounds, and because it has a smaller display (11.6 inches versus 12.1) it's significantly lighter than the last Chromebook, which weighed 3.3 pounds. The island-style keyboard is just as comfortable, and the trackpad is similarly large. It was a nice package when it cost $500, but it's really nice now that the MSRP has been lowered to $249. You simply won't find a netbook this nice for that little money."

"I was already a big Chromebook fan before I got my hands on Samsung's just-released ARM-powered Chromebook. Now, after a weekend with it and with its amazing price of $249 I think it's going to find a few million more fans. Indeed, as of October 21st, the ARM-based Chromebook is Amazon's best selling computer."

"The laptop's shell is plastic, but it performs an excellent impersonation of silver brushed aluminum. It feels really, really good. The Samsung logo is the only thing on the top. The Chromebook is very light -- 2.4 pounds -- and its extremely clean, satisfying keyboard is carefully modeled on the MacBook Air's. The keys are black with white lettering, and they poke up through holes in the "deck." The trackpad works perfectly."

"Samsung and Google recently introduced the simply named Chromebook, a $249 computer with an 11.6-inch screen and around 6.5 hours of battery life in a slim and svelte 2.5 lb, 0.8-inch-thick shell. It's a bare-bones approach to the concept of a Chrome OS notebook, and it's probably what Google should have done with this type of hardware from the very beginning. But does that mean it's good?"
