Today we have the Samsung Chromebook Series 5 to review.  This is Google’s attempt at conquering the laptop/netbook market. It features Google’s own Chrome operating system, which, along with a 1.66Ghz processor and 2GB of RAM, Google are boasting very quick boot times, fast browsing speeds and overall smoothness. Let’s take a closer look.

12 Samsung Chromebook Series 5 Review

One thing I must point out before I proceed is that this is not your everyday laptop, Chromebooks are made with one purpose, the ultimate web experience.  This is where the Chrome OS comes into its own, it’s purely online, if you have no internet connection then you will be unable to use the device.  Now this would have been a problem in the past, but lets face it, there are very few places that don’t have a WiFi connection, and with the added option to insert a 3G SIM card, there really is no issue with not being able to use it.
