    Just wanted to get some thoughts if anyone has one and your opinion. Im thinking about getting one for my daughter for Xmas, instead of a tablet; she's a junior in high school.

    Got one last week and I have been using it more then my iPad. I like more because of the keyboard and flash. Since she's will be using it for classes I would think the chromebook would be better then a tablet.

    That's what I was thinking as well. How is it with everything having to be an app like a tablet?

    It's great for me since I only surf the web and sometimes stream videos and works great. Have not tried out google apps like Microsoft office. But battery lasts long and instant boot is nice.

    Is she comfortable using Google Docs for papers rather than Word?

    I don't see why not. They are similar. She's a quick learner

    Well you can always test them out and return the one she doesn't like.

    Ended up going with the Acer over the Samsung just cause it has the 320GB hard drive over the 16GB solid state driver on the Samsung. I know she'll need the extra storage. Can't believe how hard they are to find now. Sold out everywhere. Thanks for all the input.
