    What is a Chromebook PC?
    Chromebooks are a new type of computer designed to help you get things done faster and easier. Chromebook starts in seconds, so you can go straight to playing or working.


    Chromebook looks like a laptop, feels like a laptop but... differ from the traditional computers as follow:

  • Instead of Window OS or Apple OS, Chromebooks run on Chrome OS, an operating system that has multiple layers of security, cloud storage, and the most popular Google products built-in.
  • Chromebook won't load and run traditional PC applications such as Microsoft office, iTune or Skype. However, Chromebooks use Chrome specific apps for everyday tasks such as create documents, listen to music, edit your photo, chat with friends and family or play games, and there are many more downloadable from the Chrome Web Store. No more buying and installing software - thousands of apps are free, and they stay up to date automatically.
  • Chromebooks has Built-in Virus protection, multiple layers of security, and verified boot help keep you safe from viruses, malware.
  • Chromebooks keeps your files away from your machine and safe online with built-in Google Drive, your files and photos are automatically backed up to the cloud so you won't have to worry about losing them.
  • Chromebook updates itself, for free. So you always have the latest and greatest version. No need for manual downloads and upgrades.
  • Chromebook works seemlessly with Internet. No internet at the moment? Keep getting stuff done when you're disconnected from the web by using offline apps like Gmail and Google Docs.
  • Safety Alert: Due to federal restrictions, this item cannot be returned by air mail. Customers in Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and other overseas locations can return this item to a Walmart store. See our returns policy for more information.

    Rated 4.3 out of 5★ by 488reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Google Chromebook I got my Chromebook (samsung series 5) shortly after they were released (3-4 years ago) and it has been the best internet appliance I"ve owned. I didn't call it laptop purposely - it isn't a laptop. It has no programs, but uses apps from the google market that can be added or removed in a heartbeat when ever the need arises. I've been a computer tech for over 20 years and have been through a laptop or two, but I've never had one last this long, without becoming outdated. That's a biggy for me - the Chromebook updates itself ever time you turn it on. The interface is constantly changing a little - if you're the kind that gets upset every time yahoo re designs their web mail then a Chromebook is not for you. If you're the type that lives on the bleeding edge of technology like myself - you'll love it. Recently I just got it duel booting with Chrome and Ubuntu 12.4 LTS so on the rare occasion that I need to do something that Chrome doesn't do (ie Skype) ubuntu takes care of it. The overhaul design is beautiful, the keyboard is very close to a macbook quality keyboard. I'm learning new things about it every day - even after 4 years. That'll never happen with Windoz or Mac without "Paying for an update" When I first got it Chrome didn't even have a desktop. Look at the attached photo of my desktop now. How good? 11/20/2013

So, for what it’s worth, here are some things I’ve learned about the Samsung Chromebook, either by conducting my own experiments or by finding the info in the nether regions of the internet...1. Bluetooth: Yes, just as advertised, you CAN pair the Chromebook up to a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse. You CANNOT at this time, however, pair it up to a Bluetooth audio device. This fact is not very well publicized and, the first day I was goofing around with the Chromebook, I couldn’t understand why it would pair up to my iHome iDM8 Bluetooth speaker for about two seconds, and then just as quickly unpair again.This issue (#204431) has been fixed, and when the Chromebook automatically updates to stable Chrome OS milestone/release 28, Bluetooth audio should be enabled. Stable release/milestone 27 came out on 23 May 2013. This means that, since stable versions of Chrome OS are released roughly every three months, stable milestone/release 28 should be available by about 23 August 2013.In the meantime, if you want to switch to the beta or unstable developer release/milestone of Chrome OS to see if Bluetooth audio works on your Chromebook, you can do this by doing the following:a) click on the bottom right hand side of the screen where the time, wifi signal, etc. are shown.b) click on “settings”c) click on “help”d) click on “more info”. (Fyi: this screen also shows you the release/milestone of Chrome OS you are currently running...)e) under “channel”, click on the release of Chrome OS you want to use (Stable, Beta, or Dev-Unstable)2. Which formats are the USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports on the Chromebook capable of reading? I could find absolutely no information anywhere on the internet about this topic, so I had to do my own testing to find the answer. Using an ADATA 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive for the test, I formatted the flash drive to FAT32, NTFS, and Ext3/Ext4. The Samsung Chromebook was able to read the flash drive formatted to each of these formats with no problem. I also plugged an RCA MP3 player formatted to FAT16 into the Chromebook’s USB 2.0 port, and it was able to read the format and all of the mp3 files on the device flawlessly.3. Use of External Hard Drives: Tried out three different Western Digital portable hard drives and a Seagate 3TB desktop hard drive. The Chromebook was able to read and write to all of them with no problem.3. Video Playback: According to the manual, the Chromebook can only play MP4 video files. However, as unlikely as it would seem, quite a few people on the internet have mentioned that they were able to take MKV video files, simply change the file extension to MP4, and then play the files on their Chromebook.Here’s what I found to be true, at least as far as my particular Chromebook goes:I used the movie “Branded” and transcoded it to MKV, codec H.264, 1690Kbps variable Bitrate, AAC/165Kbps audio, 852 x 480 resolution. I then formatted the ADATA 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive to NTFS and copied the transcoded movie onto it. The Chromebook was unable to play the file. I then changed the file extension to MP4 and tried to play it again. Once again, the Chromebook was unable to play the file. I then transcoded the movie to MP4 and tried to play it. The Chromebook was able to play that file with no problem.Bottom line here: My Chromebook can only play video files which have been fully transcoded to MP4 format.4. Video Playback from Google Drive: Uploaded the transcoded MP4 copy of “Branded” to Google Drive. The Chromebook was able to play the file via Google Drive Viewer with no problems.5. Google Cloud Print: There are two ways to print from this Chromebook. The first is to buy a cloud-ready printer. I don’t know much about these printers, but it looks like the cheapest ones run about $60. The other way is to use another computer with Google Chrome Browser installed on it. I tried this method, and was (no joke) able to set up Google Cloud Print and print a test page from my Chromebook in under two minutes.The details: My desktop computer dual-boots Windows 8 and Ubuntu 13.04 operating systems. It has two printers hooked up to it, an HP Deskjet 3521 and a Brother HL-2230. Although it specifies in the Chromebook instructions that you must use a Mac or Windows PC, I set up Google Cloud Print using Ubuntu with no difficulty, and was able to print on both printers.Here are the steps for setting up Google Cloud Print:a) Open the Google Chrome browserb) Click on the little icon at the top right-hand side of the screen that has three little lines on it.c) Click on “settings”d) Scroll all the way down and click on “Show Advanced Settings”e) Click on “Google Cloud Print”f) Sign in to your Google accountg) Click on “Add Printers”h) Click on “Add All Printers”Remember, whenever you print using this method, your other computer needs to be on (not asleep or hibernating...).6. Streaming video: Tried streaming the pilot episode of “Breaking Bad” via Netflix, Amazon Video and Google Play Movies. It looked great on Netflix and Amazon Video but, strangely, it stopped and buffered so often on Google Play Movies that it was not watchable. I tried this several times over the course of a couple of days and got the same results each time.7. ODF documents (.ODT, .ODS, .ODP): Installed OpenDocument Reader from the Chrome Web Store and was able to view all my LibreOffice ODF documents, both the downloaded ones and the ones stored on Google Drive and Dropbox. This is a read-only feature, though. If you want to edit one of these documents, you’ll need to upload it to Google Drive and make sure that you have enabled “Convert uploaded files to Google Docs format” in Google Drive settings. Alternatively, you can use the “LibreOffice on rollApp” app from the Chrome Web Store. The app seems to work pretty well.8. How to see the file size of a file on Google Drive after you’ve uploaded it:On Google Drive, in the upper right-hand side of the screen, click on “sort”, then click on “quota used”.9. Other observations:a) Kindle Cloud Reader works great on the Chromebook; and, yes, you can download Kindle ebooks for offline reading.b) You get 100GB of cloud storage for two years for free on Google Drive when you buy a Chromebook. The two years doesn’t necessarily start the day you buy the Chromebook. It starts the day you sign up for the 100GB. When the two years are up, you will not lose the stuff you uploaded to Google Drive. You’ll always be able to access your data even after the two years are up. You just won’t be able to add any more data to Google Drive unless you choose to buy more storage.c) Downloading music from both Google Play and Amazon onto the Chromebook is very easy, and it’s almost instantaneous. (Seems to be much faster than downloading to Windows PC or Android tablet...)d) How to turn on Caps Lock: Alt-Searche) This Chromebook has a matte screen instead of a glossy screen. This means that there is almost no glare, but the picture might not look quite as vivid as it would on a glossy screen. Personally, I’d prefer the matte screen on this thing over the glossy screen on my Windows 8 Laptop any day...f) The Chromebook has a pre-installed file manager that is just called “files”. It usually automatically opens when you insert a drive into one of the USB ports. You can also bring it up by selecting the “files” icon in the Chromebook’s app manager. “Files” works fine, but it would be nice if there were other file managers, such as Android’s ES File Explorer or XPlorer, available for the Chromebook. It would also be nice if there were media player apps available for it that could play MKV video files. We’re still in the early days of Chrome OS development, so it wouldn’t be surprising at all if apps such as these become available in the near future.g) Yes, the battery is supposed to be easily replaceable if you’re willing to take the bottom cover off by removing a few screws. 07/05/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Best bang for your buck!!! Its about time Walmart started selling these! I have had this Chromebook for almost a year now and absolutely love it! I bought it in January as a second computer with the intentions of only using it to take notes on in class; that changed real quick. Its crazy how easy it is to get used to this thing. The keys are so nice to type on, the battery lasts all day, and the computer is never slowed down by bloatware, spam or viruses. I love the fact that it automatically saves what your working on (no more essays lost due to battery dying or forgetting to save). This Chromebook is so light that half the time I forget this thing is even in my backpack. My Chromebook gets used (and abused) daily and after almost a year of use it is still as good as it was the first day I bought it. For $250 your getting a lightweight laptop that boots in seconds, lasts over 6 hours on a single charge, never gets viruses and is simple to use. And for those people who complain because it doesn't have Itunes, just convert your music to Google's version of the software or just hack the Chromebook to use Ubuntu and find a program that will store your songs and read your apple devices. Hope this helps!!! 11/05/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great laptop for anyone on the go The Samsung Chromebook is a perfect laptop for anyone on the go! It boots up in less than 10 seconds and requires no "maintenance" like Windows laptops do.The keys and lettering are large, making it especially great for the older generation or those with less than perfect vision.It's an all around amazing invention! 05/15/2013
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Perfect for my eeds I've been using my Chromebook now for about 3 weeks and getting used to it before writing a review. Please understand that this is not a laptop computer, that said, it's capabilities are exactly what I was looking for. The speed which it has on start-up is fantastic and connecting via my netgear at home is quick and simple (much better than waiting for my old HP Windows XP desktop to boot up just to go on-line). It did take some time to figure out how to get pictures from my digital camera to load, but once I did I was impressed with the editing tools, and the ease to paste pictures to my e-mails. Also my grandkids love the filters for the built in camera that make their heads look like balloons, etc. I do wish it had a front facing camera as well. The apps that it comes with are somewhat useful but there are plenty available at the Chrome store for free. All in all for the money I think this product gives a good bang for the buck. 12/16/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Laptop. I got this Chromebook 2 weeks ago as an early Christmas Gift, I love how fast everything runs on this Computer/Browser. it has a lot of good qualities like upgrades every time you turn it on, battery fully charges fast. saves every thing to your Google account in case you break or loose it, you can all ways get it back. its like and fits anywhere. I got the Hard Plastic Case for mine on line in Red, and the Neoprene Carrying case so it looks good and is well Protected. I like typing on it cause the keys have space in them, and that makes typing for me easier and keeps my speed up. only thing that I can't say I like about it is that I can't get it to work with my Wireless Printer but it works great with the HP Envy Printers that all use Icloud. so I will get another printer one of the Envy's so this will no longer be a problem. but I love this little device!! and would recommend it to anyone who wants a Computer that will be around for a long time, and is so much fun to use..... 12/01/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Best Notebook I have ever had!! I have waited a few months before writing a review. I wanted to start my online graduate classes before I wrote a review. I can't tell you how excited I am about this notebook. It meets all my expectations. It does not have Microsoft word, but the Google docs will convert it to word. I just simply e-mail it in word to my e-mail address. I then open the document and download the word document. I then post the document into my class website. The computer is super fast and the battery life is great! It is small and light. I am a school teacher and I can carry this Chromebook anywhere. I love that everything is saved on my Google chrome account. I can be anywhere and access my documents. I highly recommend this product!! 10/20/2013
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by It's a great buy! I really like my Chromebook! Is cute & small but not TOO small to where it's hard to type comfortably. It starts up really fast and as soon as you sign into your Google account it pulls up everything that you've ever saved to it. All your bookmarks... everything. It doesn't support java, silverlight, and does not use Skype. But for everything that it cannot do, Google has some sort of app for it. This computer only runs on Wi-Fi. It tells you that you can use offline apps but it hasn't worked well for me. Using the mouse pad and certain key functions can be a new experience (like right clicking) but as soon as you turn it on the first time they walk you through everything. I love it and I take it everywhere with me. It fits in my large Michael kors bag and is super light and doesn't weigh me down. This thing is super cute and convenient to use. But do not purchase this as your primary computer. This should be an add on to your collection. BTW... Have fun with the webcam and the features. Was laughing for hours! 07/25/2013
