5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Device, June 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After immersing myself in my Chromebook the last few days, I feel like I know enough about how it works to be able to write an objective review.

The thing that struck me first is how fast this computer is. You are up and running in 10 seconds from the computer being completely turned off. Browsing is fast. Navigating around the computer is fast. It is evident that speed was a big priority in the making of this device.

The computer itself is quite aesthetically pleasing; I have gotten asked about it already in the few short days I have had it. It feels solidly built, and is very comfortable to hold and use. I love the keyboard, it feels good to type on. The track pad is great as well. It is large, and has a clickable button built in that is neat to use. From what I can see, the computer doesn't seem too fragile, and there isn't anything hanging off that can get snagged.

As for the Operating System: Chrome OS is great, if you know what it is all about. This computer is not for the person who is set in their ways of having certain programs they use every day, such as iTunes, Photoshop, MS Office. You can not install these programs on the Chromebook. That being said, there are many applications that can take place of these programs. Google Docs is a stripped down MS Office that has the same basic functionality. There are several music apps that would be happy to let you store your music library on them. Google is constantly updating the software and bringing more functionality to Chrome OS as well.

No frills, no viruses to get, minimal set-up, instant start up and shut down, and great hardware is a great experience. I highly recommend it.

easy for the most part, but was difficult to navigate backwards at times. saving the filing charges was worth it though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Show, January 5, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this on a whim when it went on sale, and it did not disappoint. This is probably the funniest show I have ever seen. There are so many undertones and jokes that it takes a second viewing to fully understand. The only problem is that the show got dropped and there were only 3 seasons!

In terms of quality, it is standard for a TV series. The first season is a slightly lesser video quality than the next 2, as is with all TV series (because they don't know if the show will get picked up or continued).

You should have bought this yesterday. Seriously.
