Simple & Easy-to-Use

Chrome_image_B
If you know how to use a browser, then you know how to use a Chromebook!
This Chromebook is small on size but big on usability with its 11.6" HD Widescreen CineCrystal™ LED-backlit Display and full-size Chrome OS keyboard. The silver matte finish with high-gloss black decorative edge and simplified design make this device stylish and easy-to-use.

Not only is the Acer Chromebook stunning to look at, it's also easy to use. If you know how to use a browser, then you know how to use Chrome OS. There is nothing to install, and there are no applications to manage because everything is on the web.

Every time you turn it on, the Chromebook upgrades itself to latest features and fixes, with no nagging updates! It also syncs your favorite themes, extensions, bookmarks, and apps across Chrome. The bottom line is that your Chromebook will always have the latest version. No update discs required.

Security Built-in Automatically

Chrome_image_C
Chromebooks are designed to keep your computer secure and protected, automatically, so you don’t have to worry about it!
Worried about safety and security? Fear not. The Chromebook is actually a lot safer to use than an ordinary computer. It's designed to keep your browser secure and protected against the bad things, like malware and viruses, that are out there on the web.

Every time you boot your Chromebook, it does a self check called a "verified boot." If it detects that your computer or OS has been tampered with or corrupted, the operating system is typically restored automatically from a known good backup. And if a backup is unavailable on your computer, you can download one yourself from the cloud.  Best of all: your Chromebook does all this on its own so you don't have to worry about it.

Now after having a Chromebook I prefer to keep my documents in Google Docs, just like I now prefer to keep and edit photos on web sources rather than locally.

Well, I can easily say that after trying this out for the last few months, I will definitely be buying another when the time comes.

The Acer Wi-Fi Chromebook shares the distinction of being the first commercial Chromebook with another model by Samsung. The Acer Wi-Fi Chromebook will sell for $349 while the Samsung model will sell for $429 (Wi-Fi) and $499 (Wi-Fi and 3G capable). I have been testing the CR-48 Chromebook for the last five months. During this time I have come to see the positives and the negatives of this device. The Acer Wi-Fi Chromebook will feature an updated Intel Atom processor which should function quite nicely.

I do think that most people will be happy with this device as long as they understand a couple of things:

1. This will not replace your Windows or Mac machine completely. If you use any programs like Photoshop, then you will still have the need for your PC or Mac.

2. You are probably better off buying the Wi-Fi version and using your smart phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot or buying a Wi-Fi Hotspot from a provider like Verizon or Sprint. That way you can use the web on multiple devices instead of just paying for 3G access on your Chromebook.

Here are some Pros and Cons to consider:

Pros

1. Lightweight
2. Extremely long battery life (I typically charge mine every other day)
3. Pretty fast. On the web I find that the Chromebook loads up really fast.
4. Angry Birds - Yeah, they have added an Angry Birds Chrome web app that lets you play Angry Birds.
5. Sandboxing - You can Google this, but just think of it as a added level of web security.
6. Saving on the Cloud - All your files, etc. are linked to the cloud so you are not having to back up your laptop regularly.
7. Regular updates. Google releases updates to Chrome OS about every 2-3 weeks keeping it stable and secure.
8. HDMI output.

I've been using one of the laptops that Google distributed last year in order to test Chrome OS. As the idea behind Chromebooks is new to some, I thought I'd focus on the operating system, though I've covered the hardware to a point.
I'll try to make this in-depth without it being too technical.

If you're looking for a quick idea of whether or not this is for you, jump to the bottom and read the summary.

The Concept

The premise on which Chrome OS is based is that almost everything you do when you use your computer happens in your browser, so Google have built a system that makes that experience as fast, as simple and as secure as they can. That simplicity also leads to an 8-hour battery life, which very few laptops can offer.
This simpler approach means that you don't have to deal with software updates(with one exception, see below) or worry about anti-virus software.
This also means all of your files and media is stored on other computers, on the internet. Some people aren't ready for that and if you're not, Chromebooks aren't for you.

Applications and Limitations

As you might imagine, just the web means no Windows, Mac or other typical software applications. Because of this, there's no CD or DVD drive in a Chromebook.
Though `just the web' may sound extremely-limiting, you can do a lot in your browser; multimedia editing(including video), as well as voice and video chat is all entirely possible on a Chromebook, as is the creation and editing of documents, spreadsheets and presentations. This software is available all over the web and there's a selection of useful tools to be found in the Chrome Web Store, with free and paid solutions.

Verified Purchase
Previous to this I was using a HP laptop as my sole computer. The hard drive finally failed on it. I read the reviews on this, everyone saying it was NO replacement for a primary computer. Theyre right. Its not. I thought I might be able to swing it. I couldnt. Of course, it depends on what you use your primary for. Some of the things I realized I wouldnt be able to do with this:

upload to google music
torrenting
anything other than simple saving to an external drive/sd/usb
any kind of major photo editing
easily taking photos outside of a social network profile picture upload
thats pretty much it

A few other drawbacks/cons:

-keyboard takes some getting used to. No caps lock, end, del, pg dwn, buttons. In the place where the capslock usually is, is a search button. Press it and a new tab pops up ready for you to search. Once youre used to it, I can see how that might be handy, esp on THIS unit and what youd primarily be doing with it. However, I still sometimes press it out of habit when typing, forgetting its not the caps lock. Which opens a new tab, and throws me all of for a second. Not that much of a biggie though. Also, the keyboard button sizing is a little bit different. so where my fingers are used to being able to press the shift key for example, is a little off, that took a bit to get used to as well, but it wasnt a huge problem.

-sometimes it gets a little buggy, and you have to log off, turn it off, and turn it back on. Only when youve had a lotta tabs open, been doing a lot, as you would kind of expect. HOWEVER, because this thing boots so freaking fast, you can do that in under a minute. literally. Its pretty freaking awesome.

-The track pad sometimes bugs out, it almost completely stops working.
