Chromebooks run Web-based apps, not traditional PC applications
Chromebooks are designed to be connected to the Internet. You can create documents and spreadsheets or edit photos on a Chromebook using Google apps designed for these purposes. The Chrome operating system will not load and run traditional PC software like Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop. However, files created in these applications can be viewed and edited using Google apps on your Chromebook or cloud-based applications like Microsoft's Office web apps.
Store your files in the Cloud, not on the machine.
To help make them thin and light, Chromebooks are built without large-capacity drives. So instead of storing your documents, videos, and photos on your computer, you save them to Google Drive (Google's Cloud-based storage service). Your files are password-protected and secure, and you can access them anywhere there's an Internet connection. If you know you'll want access to a file or photo offline, however, you can easily save it to the built-in solid-state drive.

Most of the time I just close it when not in use and when I open it, it wakes instantly.
There's a 2-star review that claims the Samsung Cbook-2 (13 inch) can't play Comedy Central's Net Neutrality video -- "The video would freeze every few seconds." But it's easy for extraneous things to distort such a test. I ran the same video off the same website full screen without the slightest hiccup even on the first time through.
I've never been comfortable with a touchpad, but this one is working well for me. Forget the "stickyness" worry, the surface is perfect. But here's a trick for drag and drop that's often quicker and easier:
Settings / Show Advanced Settings / Accessibility / Enable tap dragging. To use it: double tap and drag. Otherwise use two hands: click down the track pad with a finger on one hand and drag with the other. (more tips at the end)
If you're thinking of buying this Chromebook, you may be hoping to get some real work done on it. It's the first one besides the $1600 Chromebook Pixel that seems like it might compete with a top-of-the-line laptop. That was my hope, and so far I've not been disappointed. The screen could be a tad bigger, but the high resolution is definitely not wasted. The memory is a bit small (yes you can save files directly to the local hard drive, so you might want quite a bit more). But you can expand it by 32GB for about $15 or apparently by 64GB.
It's a lovely piece of equipment and there's no doubt that Google is heading the right direction with Chrome OS.
Of course it comes with 100 GB of GDrive for two years, and GDrive space is so cheap (now down to $24/year for 100GB) that you don't need to worry about getting trapped into expensive storage.
Now I'll try to cover some points for Chromebook newbies like myself, who may be just as concerned with the software -- it's a package deal and the risky part is actually the Chrome operating system. The hardware is solid.
[1 week+ later: I still like everything about the hardware. A bit disappointed that I can't buy a device to make it compatible with my printer or scanner (that's Chrome, not Samsung), and that there is no decent app for marking up PDF files. But the Google apps are working better than expected off line.]
I was quite concerned the Chrome OS would disappoint, but I've been pleasantly surprised. I will still need Windows at times, and not being able to merge table cells in Google Docs will sometimes drive me nuts. But the apps are improving all the time, and I can already do more with it than I expected.
I've got 20 GB of work files in GDrive, and its backup abilities are great in some respects but too limited and risky in others. It can't handle the CryptoLocker virus (It will simply mirror all your locked files, and you will have to recover them one at a time) and accidentally trashed files are not in folders. Anyway, there's an extremely nice solution for $40/year at spanningbackup. (I have no affiliation with them, I just did a lot of homework.)
So, right now, if you're a serious laptop user that wants to spend a lot less time in heavy old-fashioned systems and more time in the cloud. Samsung's CBook 2 (13 inch) is the machine for you. Just keep the old one around to pinch hit.
Some Tricks you might find helpful (I'll add more later)
Ctrl - Alt - / Will get you a live map of the keyboard. Hold down key combinations (eg Shft Ctrl) to see the effect
Ctrl - Shift - ? To get Chrome Help
Ctrl - Shift - t To reopen the last closed tab.
Alt - Shift - M to see the hard drive
Swipe faster, go farther. That's right -- swipe all the way across the trackpad slowly and your cursor will move only 1/3 of the screen. Fast and you easily go clear across (sensitivity set to max).
Don't use Google's screen capture, by all accounts and based on mSy own experience, it really does not work propery, use Awesome or Snagit (Awesome won't work on PDFs)
You can't plug in your old printer or scanner. You can plug you old printer into a old computer and "cloud print" to it.
The screen could be better. The vertical viewing angles are pretty poor - you have to adjust the screen just right to get full brightness. Horizontal angles are not as bad. I would gladly pay another $50 to get a higher quality IPS panel. I do love the full HD resolution, and I'm glad that it's not scaled as it is on the Pixel. The processor is also a little anemic and I do see a little hesitation when working with more complex web sites. To be honest, I saw similar things on the Pixel. I think this has as much to do with Chrome OS as it does the hardware. Lastly, I'm not a big fan of the faux leather stitched lid design. Thankfully, it's pretty subtle. The texture is good, but I would have preferred that Samsung leave off the stitching.
Despite those gripes, this is still the best Chromebook I have ever used. The keyboard is fantastic. I am a software developer and spend all day typing and I love working on this machine. The track-pad is every bit as good as the keyboard. Battery life is also excellent. I have gotten a solid 7 hours of movie watching and 8 hours of typical web work out of it. It also charges back up very quickly. I also want to mention the full HD resolution again. This is huge for me. Working with web-based IDEs on the 1366x768 resolution of most Chromebooks was no fun. The resolution was my main reason for purchasing this, and I really hope other Chromebook vendors start looking at offering better, higher resolution screens. I believe there is a market for a $500 Chromebook that gets everything right. This Samsung is very, very close.
What I like about it:
* I'm impressed with the clarity of the screen
* I'm very impressed with the quality of the sound, which I wasn't expecting to be so good.
* The keyboard is great and it feels like I'm using a laptop
* It is fast booting up, and fast response time when surfing
* the battery life is very good and charging time is fairly quick
* It's light weight and easy to carry
* I looks great and feels very well made
What I wish it had that it doesn't
* a back lit keyboard
Overall, I really love my chromebook and highly recommend it. I even use Google drive which comes with a full office suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint compatible software) and have had no problems. After using it for a couple of months now, I can't imagine not having it.
Only reason for 4 starts instead of 5 is Chromebook 1 had an led when charging. Red for charging & green when done. For some reason this feature was taken away with Chromebook 2. Was kind of nice to get a conformation (red light) that charging was started. Also nice to see the green light & know charging was complete & things could be unplugged. Both Chromebook 1 & Chromebook 2 use the same charger.
