Samsung Chromebook Series 5 In Depth Review

Neil McAllister writing on InfoWorld has posted an in-depth look at the Samsung Chromebook Series 5 3G.

McAllister’s verdict; “The Chromebook is lightweight and inexpensive, and it offers a full-featured Web browsing experience. But its low-end hardware, lack of versatility, and primitive support for commonplace computing tasks such as printing, file management, networking, and media playback make it a poor choice for everyday use, particularly in a business setting.

All in all, the Samsung Series 5 is an average-quality netbook with a large screen and a higher-than-average price tag, while Chrome OS itself feels more like a proof-of-concept project whose time has not yet come. As a browser terminal it functions well, but for everything else it falls short — and despite all Google’s cheerleading, for most users that simply won’t be enough.”
