Yet your persistency to pass negative remarks on things that you know little is legendary. I only comment on things that I have used and do own because if you don't own them how would you know more about it than those that use it on a day to day basis. This is a behaviour I am calling out. I use extensive Microsoft products but I don't worship them like some MS fan do. I like their productivity tool Office 365. I am trained in Windows Server Administration, Microsoft Lync and Enterprise Voice and starting to pick up on SharePoint. To learn more about Android I also took up evening classes on Android Programming and complete their certification. You are a troll, you talk s**t about other people choice of tool making them feel bad. I am a knowledge seeker, I want to learn things I have yet to known and one of important aspect is not to prejudges. Because of this, we will not see eye to eye. Even if my choice do not align with others so be it. I know I am living a fulfilling live.

Your persistency in making claims with 0 evidence to back it would be a greater legend, presuming your claim were true to begin with, which it isn't. I've used them and done my research on them, and I back my claims with sources, unlike some fantards and mindless haters, who go as far as turning a blind eye to evidence in front of them. You're a mindless following google fanboy. You turn a blind eye to clear evidence in front of you, making illogical claims (as evident above), all 'cause the evidence isn't praising the divine tool you choose to use. I'm all for competition offering choices, that's a big win for consumers, but wherever I see a competitor's device lacking compared to the competition it's priced like, I won't hesitate to criticize it. I simply despise rip-offs with a passion, regardless of branding. I could easily justify Samsung's Note 7 offerings compared to the competition, but this Chromebook, the evidence shows it being overpriced and I'm not one that turns a blind eye to evidence.

I use Apple, Microsoft and Google product on a day to day basis. Do you see me criticizing on any particular product that i don't like. I only target the trolls not the product. My companies spent $$$ to get me certified to operate Microsoft Enterprise Products you think i would turn my back on that. I just said there are room for all product, be it Macbook, Surface or Chromebook. Pick the one that work best for you!! This logic some how does not get through to a MS Fanboy like yourself.

Nah man. I just switched to a Chromebook at work and love the thing. It does what it does exceptionally well. If your needs can all be accomplished in a browser (and they really can for a lot of people), it's a superb device.

500 dollars for a browser with 32 GB storage and 4GB RAM?...i'd rather buy a surface 3 or wait for surface 4 that will be announced in less than 2 weeks from now

Surface 3 lags worse than a Samsung phone from 2012. The eMMC storage inside it is exceptionally slow to run windows. At least these chromebooks have small SSDs in them which makes them super snappy. Not to mention this has much better screen than surface 3. Not to mention a real keyboard, not the flimsy thing microsoft ships for additional 150$.

waste of specs :-/ all the need to do is replace that processor with low power i3/m3, bump that storage to 128GB... it will sell like hot cakes even if its priced at $700

9. Harambe unregistered

I don't think anyone wants an internet machine(chromebook) to cost 700$. This machine is built for spreadsheet editing, youtube and general browsing. And the specs are really good for those tasks. You can't do much on chromebooks. An i3 would be pure waste of power and money. Also chromebooks don't have much storage because google needs to push their cloud.

I really wouldn't mind seeing a galaxy s8 pro this time next year with all the bells and whistles of a note. Good way to rebrand and keep the numbers the same. It would also bring some uniformity to the flagship lineup

Problem with calling the note a s8 pro though is if they have any issues then it will spill to their flagship s8 phones as well. Luckily for samsung the note series was isolated on its own and didn't really cause a wider panic about samsung phones in general.

come up with your own stuff Samsung. always relying on another os to carry you. oh by the way this market is owned by ios/mac os devices

This is the first device that has me interested in a chromebook. That spen which actually fits into the chromebook. I am so tired of all the surface pro wannabes and the lack of a stylus silo. I do wish samsung would bring one of these out as a windows machine though. Inhad to get rid of my ativ 500 becuase of poor atom performance but had nothing similar to replace it with. Don't forget windows Samsung!
