Samsung Series 3 Chromebook Review

Introduction

This is technically the fifth iteration of the Google Chromebook – so long as you count Google’s own CR-48 prototype.

Despite being the fifth Chromebook, the snappily-named Series 3 XE303C12 shouldn’t be confused with the previous model, the Samsung Series 5 XE550C22 or even the second Chromebook, the Samsung Series 5 XE500C21.

If you know about Chrome OS already, you’ll know that this laptop isn’t like mainstream Windows laptops or even machines such as the Apple MacBook Air or the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display.

It doesn’t run a conventional operating system such as Windows 8, Mac OS X Mountain Lion or even a straight Linux distro such as Ubuntu.

Instead, it is essentially a computer that does one thing: run a web browser.

In this case, of course, the web browser in question is Google Chrome.

Deciding whether or not the new Chromebook is right for you is actually really easy. The first thing you have to know is that it’s cheap. Really cheap.
