Physically the device is quite solid, similarly to how a dell feels inside, but is contrasted to the plastic-y shell. My only grip with its appearance.
The track pad is a very smooth plastic that takes a little bit of time to get used too. I mention this for those familiar with the setting in windows known as "precision" or for older versions, "accelerated" mouse control. On the mac this would be a setting that cannot be changed, as far as i've known. It seems this is a chrome OS feature and not as a result of the track pad. As some may have read, the tap to click feature does require a bit more pressure than a standard setup. Such as a macbooks trackpad.
The screens colors are acceptable, and definitely usable. Viewing angles vertically however are quite varying. Horizontally theres a little bit more flexibility.
SSD from what i've read online is replace/upgradable. The ram is not. The screws are also NOT covered with warranty stickers. I think this is a education specific version of the c740
All in all i'm extremely excited to be using this device, and love the chrome os experience!
PS: be sure to understand what the Chrome OS has to offer. compared to Windows, Mac etc.
I also can't speak highly enough of ChromeOS. The joy of having a laptop that keeps itself updated, doesn't get viruses/malware and is literally maintenance free (aside from occasionally having to plug into power to charge the aforementioned battery) keeps my life simple. I know that every time I open the screen on this guy, it will instantly boot up and be ready to go... No "windows is restarting for updates, 30% complete... check back in 10 minutes", no viruses, no slowness from 3rd party apps that have accumulated over the years needless consuming resources. Just open and go!
*Excellent* performance, esp given low price
Great build quality
Awesome battery life
Good low light sensitivity on the webcam
USB 3.0 flash drives support
SD card reader
Power adapter connection seems like it could be fragile if someone tripped on the cord while plugged in
Chromebooks in general - and this one, being the one I've used - are like bicycles. Fast, zippy, simple means to get around town, run simple errands, and meet up socially. There are a lot of people who can get by with just a bicycle, if that's all they need, and a lot of people who will want a car - or a pickup, or van, or SUV - instead. There are also a lot of us who can really use both.
I have the good fortune to have a PC that does all of the heavy lifting I could need it to. It takes care of all the Adobe software for video, photo, and sound editing, and any computer games I care to play work just fine on it.
...but there are a lot of use cases in which a big desktop PC isn't very helpful. Coffee shops, classrooms, study sessions or work outside of your home. And there are lot of people - myself included - who don't actually need all that power outside of the home. I don't need to edit video on the road, and I don't need a lot of hard drive space or graphics-heavy programs either.
Owning this is like having a bicycle as well as a car. It's fast, it's zippy, it's light. It doesn't have a limitless battery, but I rarely spend more than 7-9 hours away from outlets during which time I'd need to be using a computer.
...and among affordable Chromebooks, the C740 is pretty spectacular, with a few key things to know to see if it fits your preferences.
The screen is nice but not stellar, with acceptable but still fairly narrow viewing angles.Read more ›
