As many know I won a contest on here and now it is in my hands! I received it right before lunch but just now had a chance to open it! I will post pictures and a review here on Monday. I want to spend some time with her.
Quick impressions though:
*The build quality is AMAZING! It is light but still solid feeling.
*Also the keyboard is better then the CR-48 or a Macbook Pro...That is saying a ton.
*It has a light tap feel but still a great depression range.
*The speed is crazy compared to my CR-48, it really is 2x as fast at rendering pages.
*Also Hulu plays great up to 480p in a pop out window while browsing. Youtube plays Fullscreen 720p as well. This shocked me. There isn't many sub 500 machines that could do that.
*ChromeOS is also a joy. It took about 10 mins to setup then I logged in and everything was the same as my CR-48...EVERYTHING!! Saved passwords and ChromeOS settings (mouse speed and all!)
*The mouse is 100% better then my CR-48. For one it is mounted better and just more responsive.
*Came with VGA Adapter. Not like Apple where it is 29 bucks..Nope right in the box.
*Matte Screen and Matte palm rest. Thank god..I hate glossy screens!!
*Titan is beautiful. No really! The pictures make it look like crap. It is a very nice light gloss Gun Metal.
*Screen Brightness is CRAZY!!! I have it at 50% right now it is brighter then 90% of laptops I have used (esp my CR-48 which I though had a great screen).
*No HDMI Adapter (I am not sure if they are making on or not). This is a big deal for some so it is listed.
*The mouse seems to lag off and on. This was like my CR-48 but updates fixed it. I have a feeling it is a ChromeOS thing...not a Samsung thing.
*ChromeOS and Netflix. There are some things that still seem Beta in the Stable Channel. I do get some Aww Snaps still and He's Dead Jims. Much less then my Beta Channel Mario. And no native client or plugin based Netflix support...
Overall I really think if someone uses this device...It will change there feelings about ChromeOS. It really is brilliant and will only get better.
Thanks to the Chromebook Forum and I will update this with more info. If you have any requests please ask. I plan on taking some pictures tomorrow. I will deff take side my sides with my CR-48.
Any questions or tests...just ask! This is kinda all of ours to talk about since we are all part of the community!!
