This is what I came to the future for
By Amazon Customer
I've been EXTREMELY impressed by this device. I was initially a little nervous as the system was somewhat glitchy for the first couple of weeks, seemed to be a problem with the Chrome OS because it was fixed by the next update. I previously had an Acer Chromebook c720 which I LOVED--had it for 3 1/2 years and traveled with it all over the world before the keyboard finally died. Here are my favorite things about the R11:
-Touchscreen: hey, it's not an iPad, but it works great for what I need it to do (reading and annotating e-books and pdfs through Amazon Kindle and a great app called Xodo). If you're an artist, probably not responsive enough, but if you just want to play games and underline the occasional text, this is awesome.
-360 degree rotation: LOVE the ability to watch movies in tent mode, turn it into a (slightly heavy, thick) tablet. Switching back and forth is seamless once you get used to it. I was super worried that touching the keyboard when it was in tablet mode would cause it to switch back to laptop mode, but it looks like once you move the screen back past like 180 degrees, it goes into full touchscreen. Took a week or so to get used to, but love it now. Screen stays in whatever position you put it solidly enough to use the touchscreen.
Processor: I currently have 4 windows with a total of 18 tabs open. I streamed an HD movie on Netflix with all those open, no pauses or buffering. Unreal.
Battery: SOLID. Seems to have a slightly shorter life than my Acer c720 (which literally went for days), but probably because of the aforementioned dozens of tabs and Netflix. The promised 8-9 hours definitely holds true, and will last longer if brightness is turned down/you're only web browsing, etc.
Price. I mean, come on $300 is unbeatable if what you want is email, Netflix, and books. I feel like I have a tablet and super mobile laptop rolled into one.
- speakers are a little tinny (though the volume is AWESOME) and it's not possible to customize the equalizer on the Chrome OS right now :(
- though it's a super light laptop, the chromebook is a little heavy as a tablet, not super practical for holding, but if it's resting on something, it's golden. I mean, if you want a true tablet, buy a true tablet--this did honestly keep me from investing in a kindle as I was planning to.
Overall: I'm super happy with this product. So far, I feel like my expectations have been not only met, but exceeded. If you purchase this product, go into it with realistic expectations and patience getting familiar with the setup and you'll probably love it, too! :)

I spent most of my life using Windows, and the last 4 years using MacOS. I wasn't really sold on the idea of Chromebooks ("Why would I buy a computer that's just a browser?") but after trying one I may never go back. Handling everything online erases all the headaches that usually come with owning a computer. It's fast, secure, easy to use (even as a tech geek, it's nice knowing something's just going to work). I'm a writer, and this has easily become my main computer for both work and play (Google Docs easily replaces Word, and Android apps make it much better for gaming than I originally expected). The touchscreen looks good and is responsive, and the keyboard is nice. The battery life is great (I get about 9 hours). My only complaint is the click on the touchpad feels a little cheap, but I just use "tap to click" so it's not an issue. Overall I love this machine, and all my computers will probably be Chromebooks in the future.

Bye bye Windows!
By Amazon Customer
Well, I have to say, I’m fairly impressed with my new Chrome Flipbook! My trusty Windows 7 laptop was on its last leg and I opted to try something new. It’s a tablet and a laptop and now most of the Android apps work on Chrome. So now you can find just about any functionality that you’re used to in Windows. The only drawback is that it only comes with 32 GB of hard drive. However, it comes with 100 GB of free Google Drive online storage. And you can plug in an SD card or external drive to if you need to. Configuring the printer was a little tricky but not bad. And the Blue Mail email app handles my multiple emails from multiple domains. It’s cheaper than most laptops. AND THE BATTERY LIFE! I’ve used it for 3 days and still haven’t plugged it in!
