    "I use a chromebook often; more so when i travel because they are lightweight. I love them. Everything i need is at my fingertips. It takes some getting used to but there are apps for everything you will need. The price is really good for these laptops as well. You can't beat it really. I love having access to my email, storage and other things i've saved when i need it. The speed of the laptop is quite good. I don't wait a long time for it to boot. The battery life is impeccable as well. I can work on the device for a good 10-12 hours before i need to recharge it. Overall a good performing laptop at a good price. "

    "I got this new Chromebook and I love it. It works as a laptop or a tablet. I carry with me to class to take notes in tablet mode using the pen that comes with it, no more lugging around pens, notebook paper, and a backpack. It's really light to carry and the screen is really sharp."

    "The Dell i7348-3571SLV Inspiron laptop is a good budget laptop. You get what you pay for with this one. I have been satisfied with its performance, but it won't blow your socks off. It has decent specs and is a good value, but it won't run top of the line PC games and its graphics card is fairly outdated. On the other hand, I really like its sleek design and touchscreen capabilities."

    "I play video games on the go a lot so I wanted a laptop that can handle what I want, but be pretty cheap in case I drop or lose it. I looked at ASUS, since they tend to put out high quality gaming rigs for cheap. Since it's a Chromebook, though, it doesn't have the full functionality of a laptop. It can really only run Android apps and has a very small storage. "

    "This laptop worked okay, until a few months in when the motherboard started overheating. Apparently, this is a thing with this particular model, as others have reported the same issue, so I can't recommend it. "
