    Good: Excellent design, Strong performance, Best-in-class display

    Bad: Expensive (for a Chromebook), Poor battery life, Android apps still need some work

    After testing the Chromebook Pro, I had to admit that it's not the king of the Chromebooks I was hoping for when it was first announced. It does plenty of things well -- I love its looks, screen and performance, but the keyboard's a bit cramped and the S...

    Good: Metal design, Portable, thin, and lightweight, microSD card slot, Two USB Type-C ports, Rotatable touchscreen, Can output 4K via USB Type-C port, Stylus compliments large touchscreen well, All day battery life

    Bad: Weak bottom-firing speakers, Android apps support still in beta

    The Chromebook Pro brings Android app support, a stylus, and a rotating touch screen to the simple and easy-to-use platform of ChromeOS, to turn this super portable Chromebook into a machine that can provide a well rounded experience for both work and pla...

    At $549, the Samsung Chromebook Pro provides an excellent Chromebook user experience, a terrific design, and a very nice user experience. The ability to run Android apps should extend the reach of Chrome OS to a new group of users who could not do everyth...

    Good: Super thin and lightweight, Included stylus, Crisp, colorful display, Runs Android apps out of the box

    Bad: Mushy keyboard, Android apps not ready for prime time

    I love my Chromebook Flip and I didn't think I was in the market for an upgrade. I take that computer with me when I want something really light, or if I've forgotten to charge my iPad Pro. When I really need to get work done, though, I still rely on my M...

    Good: Stunning screen, Slim, premium design, Android apps and stylus let you do much more with a Chromebook

    Bad: Android integration feels clunky, Multitasking is far from intuitive, Battery life could be better, Cramped internal storage for Android apps, Expensive

    Samsung's first convertible Chromebook includes a nice stylus, a stunning screen, and day-one access to Android apps. But as much as we like the hardware, Google needs to work harder to get Android and Chrome to play nice together. Read More...

    Good: Lighter, thinner, and betterlooking than most laptops this price. Screen works great for touch and pen input. The battery truly lasts all day

    Bad: Buggier than I thought a Chromebook could even be. Android apps don't quite mesh right with Chrome OS. You can barely hear the speakers

    Over the last couple of years, Chromebooks have quietly infiltrated the computer market. Google's affordable “just a browser” devices are the best-selling computers in schools, and they're percolating around boardrooms and cubicles. Last fall, more people...

  • Good: Effective, well-designed stylus, Access to Google Play Store increases functionality both online and off

    Bad: Expensive, Battery life is unremarkable for a chromebook, Squarish shape is a little awkward when typing, Legacy peripherals require an adapter

    Samsung's premium Chromebook Pro is one of the first chromebooks to run Android apps. But it's likely only a matter of time before less expensive models roll out with the same functionality...

  • Chromebooks hit a key milestone last May, outselling Macs in the US for the first time ever, by IDC's account. It was a pretty big win for a category oft maligned at launch for its relative lack of functionality. And while the devices are, perhaps, not fu...

  • In the weeks that I worked with the Samsung Chromebook Pro, I found it an excellent go-to computer for both travel and at-home use. Related ArticlesVirtual beacons challenge Wi-Fi for in-building, Mobile-payment mayhemSmackdown: Office 365 vs. G Suite c...

  • 2017 is shaping up to be a very strong year for Chromebooks, and not just in the low-end and education-focused markets. Alongside the Acer Chromebook R13 and ASUS Chromebook C302, the Samsung Chromebook Pro is another fantastic choice for those who are wi...

  • Good: battery life

    Bad: Display sometimes mistakes small hand pressure for stylus pressure, Some Android apps don't translate properly in perspective and size when opened on Chrome OS, Apps with specific hardware requirements (like GPS, rear cameras, etc) won't work exactly as t...

    The market is about to be flooded with a new wave of Chromebooks, all focused on Android apps. Chrome OS and Android were always meant for different devices, but now OEMs are making Chromebooks that can deliver the best of both worlds. Google's Play Store...

  • Taking over the world isn't easy, but Google is well on its way. The company's Android platform is still in its infancy in the grand scheme of things, and yet smart thinking on Google's part caused adoption to skyrocket in no time at all. By making Androi...
