Samsung Chromebook Series 5 Part.II

If the finish is good and the input devices pleasant to use, the screen, it is a real nuisance. Have 12 "with a resolution of 1280x800 on a computer of 29.4 x 21.95 x 1.99 cm and 1.48 kg is significant, it had already made the observation for the MacBook Air 11". The choice of a matte panel and a backlight LEDs promise a good experience. Alas, it is not: the contrast is absent, the brightness too high, the colors washed out completely. Nothing, not even the price as other netbooks have much better screens, justifies this failure in order.

Finally, behind Samsung traps most of the ports. On the left side, there is the outlet, a vent fan (hopefully discreet), a trap door concealing a video port rare, mini-VGA (VGA adapter is included) and a USB port, and finally a jack input audio in / out. Right side, there is a second USB port and a trap door concealing a SIM slot and a switch to activate the OS developer Chrome. Before finally, there is an SD slot (HD / XC). Outside so, despite missing this screen, this Samsung Series 5 is more pleasant: it's a nice netbook, well designed without protrusions and vents diverse as sometimes found in this segment. Inside, the Samsung Series 5 is a netbook everything from classic to 2011, the Intel Atom "Pine Trail" double-heart N570 clocked at 1.66 GHz with 2GB of DDR3 RAM through its 16 GB SSD storage format MSAT.

The real star of this Chromebook however his 6-cell battery: it is simply unstoppable. The explanation is simple: Chrome OS is a very lightweight OS, which can be summed up in a big web browser, it is very applicant resources. Is achieved easily and 8-9 hours of battery life (Samsung announces 8:30), 8:00, passing a little time on YouTube, 9 hours, passing a little more time reading and a little less to watch videos.
