I have always had a laptop with all the bells and whistles. However, being between jobs where I wasn't provided a ""big"" laptop, I needed something I could use for small tasks. This Chromebook is perfect for surfing the web, paying bills, email, so on. I don't need for much more. It printed easily to our wireless printer too! The Chrome OS recently updated and this computer updated automatically. I did recently need to download a big file for my new job and it slowed this bad boy down a little. If you're familiar with Chromebooks and just need a cheap one that will come to your door in two days, then this is the one for you. It's been nice to not have to email on my phone anymore.
