The Samsung Chromebook is an interesting device. It's small, but very heavy, it looks like a normal laptop, but you can't use it without being connected to the Internet. It is, in short, a bit of an enigma.
The thing that you first notice about it, is the fact that it can do only one thing, and that's run a version of the Chrome web browser. There is, of course, a Linux-based operating system here too, but you will never see it, unless you switch to the developer mode.
The whole thing boots in just a few seconds, and assuming you're connected to the Internet, you can get on with work straight away. There are apps too, but these run in the cloud and virtually nothing, aside from the OS, is stored on the device itself.
We have very mixed feelings about this machine. It's cool, and could be very useful if your company operates in the cloud already. The problems arise when you're not near a wireless network, and it's not cheap either, at £400.
