Pros Great weight
Cons Under powered CPU stutters on video playback
Poor response of touch pad
Slows down with even two or three tab windows open
Way too expensive for what you get.
Summary I ended up putting ubuntu on this machine, which makes it slightly more usable. but still needs stronger CPU and better touchpad.
Pros Well, its fast.
Cons Very limited offline capabilities. I'm not saying that it has to work like a regular computer, for that would defeat the purpose. However, at the very least, it should have an offline mode where you can access cached application resources.
Summary The bottom line is that $400+ is way too much to spend for this product. I would be willing to pay no more than $200 for it. However, for novelty's sake, if someone were to give me one, I would not say no.

Pros Great battery life and if you can adjust to the cloud and make it work for you then its great!
Cons Can't do anything really worth mentioning offline

Pros Trivial setup, highly intuitive UI, great keyboard, very good battery life, quick. The app selection is already surprisingly good.
Cons Poor speakers, narrow viewing angles
Pros you can't use it if you have Google Business account.
Cons none for business use
Summary Very stupid design !! if you have Google Business account you can't use it. you have to have regular gmail account to use it. a lot of business people now use Google Business (premier account) and you can't use this if you have Google Business (premier account). .. Come on Google ... you can be smarter than Apple !!
very disappointed with Google Chromebook, wasted a lot of time, will return Chromebook ASAP.
