I have got the Chrome Book up & running. The software is a little different than Microsoft, but not to hard to learn. The Chrome Book runs very similar to the IPad, but a lot faster. Setting up links to websites takes a while the 1st time, but after that, it is just as fast as a normal laptop. Navigating the Apps or Settings, is a little different. This part is probably more similar to a Apple product. The mouse pad is like the mouse pad on a Apple product. My only complaint is that the screen is a little smaller than I would like, but for the price you can not complain. There seems to be Apps for around anything that you would want! The hard drive is limited to 16gig, but most document are stored on the I-Cloud. I will give more feedback as time goes, but it will take care of all my needs. This would be a very good starter computer for anyone, especially young kids for the price of 249.00.
