Coming in at RM 1,299 – you get a device that's capable of connecting to YES' 4G Network. It uses the Chrome OS which at this point is not just a lightweight (read : FAST) operating system BUT it's also a VIRUS FREE (to the best of my knowledge)...

While there’s a lot to like about Chrome OS’ simplicity, the Samsung Series 5 550 Chromebook is still a tad too limited for most casual users day to day. The inability to install applications you’d take for granted on Windows or Mac will send many up...

If you've sniffed a wind of change in the air and are keen to get on board with the Chrome OS, then the Chromebook offers a decent hardware spec to do it with. But it's pricy, especially since a similarly priced Windows laptop or iPad-like is more...

We’re using the cloud more and more, but Google is too far ahead of the curve with Chrome OS. The updates have made it more usable, but what you can do offline is still too limited, and the file manager desperately needs improving. We could moan that...

What the Chromebook does, it does well. It's not an exaggeration to say that this is the best Web browsing experience that you'll find on a laptop. It's quick, smooth, easy to navigate via multi-touch scrolling and supported by a brilliant matte...

Google deserves a lot of praise for the improvements made to Chrome OS over the last eight months. In August the operating system was in shambles. Web browsing felt slow, multi-touch support was jerky and functionality was poor due not only to the...

Google's Chrome OS is a great idea: if everything important can be done in the cloud, why not have lightweight devices that provide cheap, easy access to enormous computing power but don't burden their users with unnecessary features unless they...

Overall, the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook XE550C22 is a big leap forward for Chromebooks, and is easily the best Chromebook we've reviewed. Of course, the previous generation of Chromebook was rather disappointing, so that's not saying too much. We liked...

Ask any great inventor and they'll tell you the best concepts don't always work out in practice. The Google Chromebook is an admirable attempt at an idea that unfortunately infastructure doesn't fully support. It's a nice machine, with a few lackings,...

In June this year, Google extended its reach into the computer market by launching the Chromebook platform. Many thought this an extremely strange move, especially considering underpowered netbooks are on the way out in favour of chic tablets. But Google...
