    Very good user reviews on Amazon
    Sufficient processing power for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing
    Chrome OS provides online versions of docs, simple image processing, games, etc with automatic backups and no risk of virus
    Chrome OS has limitations without an internet connection. Not suitable for users who depend on specific softwares such as photoshop, CAD, etc without an online equivalent.
    Use with old, non-cloud ready printers requires a Mac or Windows machine to set up
    Memory sufficient for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing
    Memory may not be sufficient for simultaneous editing of large number of photos and videos, virtualization software(parallels), engineering and simulation software, etc
    Solid state drive provides quick startup, silent operation, faster response compared to conventional harddrive
    Battery life is unknown.
    Medium GPU allows playing most demanding games, but only at low detail settings and resolution, and less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at high settings and resolution
    GPU is not suitable for latest, demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2, etc) at high or medium detail settings and resolution
    11.6" screen suitable for portability; too small as desktop replacement or gaming
    No built-in CD/DVD drive; Reduces weight but watching movies or installing software from CD/DVD will require separate purchase of optical drive
    Integrated webcam for video chatting
    Processing power may not be sufficient for computation intensive tasks such as simultaneous editing of large number of photos and videos, virtualization software(parallels), file and harddrive encryption, etc

    A core i3 processor is a solid, affordable choice for the heavy majority of people. If you use your computer for basic tasks such as word processing, email, surfing the web, etc., a Core i3 processor is more than enough to handle all of that with ease.
