This is a very solid feeling unit, unlike many inexpensive Chromebooks. All the reviews are spot on about performance and battery life. I take exception to the comments about this unit (or any Chromebook) being “limited.” Google “install Ubuntu on Chromebook” and follow the instructions, and you will have a fully functional Linux computer. Install LibreOffice for your office suite, Gimp for photo editing, Audacity for audio recording and editing, and any other Linux applications you want. Put a 64 GB SD card in the slot for all your data. You will have a computer that is more secure than any Windows computer, costs a small fraction of any Mac computer, and can do pretty much anything you want. The world of Linux software is amazing, and it is all free, OK, so it can’t manage your iPhone, but it can do darn near anything else. All for under $200. I do not see myself going back to Windows or Mac ever.
