    I've been waiting so long for Google to release the play store to all chromebooks it's just getting so annoying

    Now I wait for someone to port linux onto this one.

    Note to the pretentious dipshits who made this video: you're making a tech review, not oscar bait. Get over yourselves

    I live my life in beta mode too and I would not reccomend it, 3/5 wouldn't play again

  • March 1, 2017 at 1:25 am

    Tech companies should pay ppl for using their unfinished so called beta products

  • March 1, 2017 at 6:33 am

    Only a person that does no real work will think about replacing their Windows/Mac with a Chrome browser and android apps…

  • March 3, 2017 at 7:03 pm

    Im thinking in getting a Chromebook but im not sure if it gonna fit my needs: I need a text editor it can be office, drive, etc (offline mode), watch some movies and series in Netflix, watch videos in YouTube, browse the web, dvd player, USB slot, HDMI slot and long life battery.

    Should i buy i Chromebook?

    1:35 Take your shoes off when you're on the sofa you slob.

    So far Reviews on the Samsung ChromeBook Pro have lagged/shuddered during Android App demos, any updates or optimizations to this or will it always be sub-par with Android Apps? Would like to see a comparison to how the Plus handles the same..

    Shocker….the verge isn't impressed with anything that doesn't come with an apple on the back.

  • March 31, 2017 at 9:30 pm

    Who else is watching this on their chromebook plus?

  • April 8, 2017 at 1:45 am

    I would get the Dell Chromebook 13.

    Love the cinema, though.

  • April 27, 2017 at 11:11 pm

    Woah, the cinematography and music blown me out just for a Chromebook ! hope you make more videos like this Verge !

  • April 30, 2017 at 8:11 pm

    This is handsdown the best video review making in history. As far as I've seen. I've seen a lot! Keep this goodwork for other Review.

    I freaking love my Chromebook Plus. Can't recommend it enough!

  • May 27, 2017 at 8:30 pm

    What is the song at beginning of vid? Saw it on what's inside family and remembered hearing it here.

  • June 13, 2017 at 4:31 am

    Samsung chromebook pro with 128GB memory.. Faster processor, even more ram and $500 price… That'll kill everything.

  • July 14, 2017 at 9:52 pm

    If anyone is wondering…they pulled it off by now.

  • September 6, 2017 at 12:06 am

    Works great now! Maybe do a throwback review (;

  • October 8, 2017 at 3:03 am

    Lol it's funny now they're calling it "expensive"
    1 year later BOOM 1000 dollar chromebook (Then there's Canada where it's around 1300-1450)

  • January 17, 2018 at 4:47 am

    Asus 302ca is way better because it has a 12.5 inch 16:9 screen and also it has a backlit keyboard for around $450

  • January 29, 2018 at 5:46 pm

    Windows Longhorn was the same beta as this one such as slow downs, huge MEMORY LEAKS and crashes
