I wish I had more depth to this review. I wish I could give you point by point instructions about what’s great about it and what’s not so great about it. I wish I had detailed pictures to show you. Instead, I have a very short simple point.
Given a choice, for non-work tasks, I now reach for my chromebook over my macbook pro.
I’m going to let that sink in for a second. I have a new macbook pro with an ssd and 16 gigabytes of ram. It’s super nice. I run whatever software I want on it and have it configured exactly like I want to have it configured. So why do I reach for the chromebook? Because it’s easy. Because when I open it, it’s ready to go immediately. Because I never have to worry about having too much stuff running on it and it getting slow. Because I know for a fact it will still have a bunch of battery life. Because it’s solid. Because it feels well built.
I don’t know what else to say, if you need a computer that lets you internet and ssh, you really couldn’t do better.
