  • With more than 9 hours battery life and a strong feature set, Samsung's Chromebook 2 is a very good value for $250.


  • Samsung's updated 11-inch Chromebook 2 now has a more powerful Intel Celeron processor, but it suffers from a lackluster display.


  • Chromebooks will never be for everyone, but assuming you're game, the 13-inch Samsung Chromebook 2 is the one we recommend. Its sharp display, stylish design, long battery life and comfortable keyboard make it worth the premium over competing models.


  • The Samsung Chromebook Series 3 (XE303C12) laptop delivers what we wanted from Google all along- a cheap, portable way to get online, with nothing getting in the way.


  • The Samsung Chromebook Series 3 delivers the cloud in a clamshell at a very tempting price.


  • It's easy to be captivated by the Samsung Chromebook. It has many of the same attributes of an Ultrabook including light weight, thinness, an 11.6-inch screen, and comfortable keyboard. Great battery life is another plus. All if this priced less than most tablets.


  • The Samsung Series 5 NP535U3C-A01US gives you the portability of an ultrabook at a lower price, but compromises on performance.


  • AMD-powered ultraportable laptop is as thin and light as an Ultrabook, but can't match the performance of its Intel-based rivals.


  • You shouldn't write off the Samsung Series 5 NP535U3C just because it has an AMD processor instead of an Intel processor. Though Intel's Ultrabooks may outperform the AMD Series 5 overall, the Series 5's integrated Radeon HD 7500G graphics are slightly more impressive than Intel's HD 4000 integrated graphics. In addition, the AMD Series 5 is cheaper than its Intel counterpart, and it has excellent speakers for the category.


  • The new Samsung Series 5 Chromebook 550 (XE550C22-H01) laptop is a speedy 3G-equipped portable Web terminal. It works well in that regard, but there are other netbooks and even ultraportables that do more for less money.


  • The Samsung Chromebook Series 5 550 offers an improved cloud-computing experience inside a slick and comfortable design, but it's too pricey given its limited functionality.

  • Rating Unavailable

    Though Chrome OS has come a long way, this particular device has disappointing battery life and feels slightly overpriced given what it can do.


  • The Samsung R540-11 is a nice step up in speed from our former Editors' Choice, the R580, but skimping on the battery size is a definite drawback for the lightest 15-inch laptop in the business.

  • Rating Unavailable

    Like every other camera under the sun, the true worth of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55 will depend on its picture quality. But we're impressed by its small size and dashing good looks, and the list of features jammed inside this compact snapper is not to be sniffed at. Stay tuned for the full review soon.


  • - The touchpad isn't large, at 2.8 x 1.6 inches, but it felt smooth and offered next to no resistance.
