- Speed and features A Chromebook has to be considered in a league of it's own. This particular model does not try to compete on price with other notebooks. It does one thing well!
- Design and form factor Though the body is a plastic, it has the same size and shape as the 11.6" Macbook Air. It has a wonderful keyboard to type on. Still, a delete key would be nice
- Battery life It's not an "ALL DAY" battery but 6.5 hours is on par with many much more expensive laptops and higher end Netbooks
- Display My only complaint: Colors sometimes appear to be washed out and it is sometimes difficult to find a strong position for the screen in uneven lighting.
- Durability It definitely doesn't have the rugged feel as the Macbook Air but it's as durable as any other laptop. The SSD means that the machine has no moving parts.
- Expandability 16GB is all you get but its all you need. However, there are two USB ports in the back of the machine that allow for low profile USB drives.
- Noise The only sound the Chromebook makes is the satisfying 'click' of its keyboard. It has no hard drive and no fans. For an 11.6", the speakers are excellent.
- Portability (size / weight) It's less than 3/4" tall and weighs next to nothing!
