  • Poor keyboard layout, Antiquated trackpad, Lackluster display, Mediocre battery life
  • Terrible display, Definite low-end materials, Heavy

  • Below average battery life, Chrome OS lacks expected features, Very poor game performance, Similar Windows 8 laptops aren't much more expensive
  • Relatively dim screen, Below-average battery life, Doesn't support all Chrome apps
  • Low display resolution, let down by the limited OS, build quality is not the best
  • Other Chromebooks perform better and run longer. The limited Chrome OS is still not for everyone, or even for most. This model lacks the mobile broadband that makers of other Chromebooks have touted as a must-have feature
