This is my first Chromebook and I love it. The simplicity of this thing is amazing, I have an expensive Windows 10 PC that drives me crazy, I find Windows has become a very intrusive and confusing computer, that bothers you with a load of notifications and pop ups. Trying to figure out how to disable all that stuff is a real pain, Windows seems to bury all those settings, making them hard to find. This Chromebook is none of that, the ease of this is like using a smartphone. I have absolutely no problem with the screen resolution , it looks fine to me. I can’t comment on the battery life because I’ve yet to unplug it, I use it strictly as a stay in one place computer (plugged in all the time). Google Docs and files take a little getting used to if you never used them, but once you get used to it you’ll have no problem. It was not a problem for me because I was already use them on my iPhone . You can’t download outside programs because its a closed system, to me , that’s a good thing because I only use it to surf the web, shop, emails and files. And because you can’t download programs your not gonna pick up any viruses. If you need to edit any photos you can always download a photo app from the Play store. I’ve found the storage and speed for this to be just fine, it doesn’t seem to slow down with numerous tabs open. You have a load of apps to download from the Google play store that should keep you happy. I don’t use it to stream movies or play games so I can’t comment on that, I’ll streams stuff from YouTube with no problems at all. If you want a laptop to do just the basics like I do, then you can’t go wrong with this for the price. To me it’s way better then one of those low cost Windows PC’s. I had a low end Windows PC that I bought as a extra computer for me to use when my wife is working on the expensive PC, I hated it so much I gave it away before it was a month old. Besides being intrusive and confusing, it was slow as crap. This Chromebook is like having a giant smartphone with a keyboard, (IT’S THAT EASY). The only reason I took away one star is because I think it could of used one more USB port, other then that I love it, and if you use a computer like I do, you will too.
PS. Keep in mind that this model S330 comes in different specs. My review is based on the model with the higher resolution screen (1920 x 1080) and more memory (64gb). They have a cheaper model called the S330 with less resolution and less memory.
