Samsung Chromebooks-Got Chrome?

HELLO Bloggers!!!

WOOT...My students and I get to use Samsung Chromebooks for summer school.  Have you ever used this shiny devices?  Your pros and cons?

Mine:

Pros:  light, finger friendly keys, healthy screen size, use Google Docs and Gmail without any headaches

Cons:  Microsoft Office Suite is not installed, cannot make Skype calls, no direct printer, some students wanted to use a mouse because they found the thumb pad was challenging for their motor skills


Smiles,

I think our school is getting these bad boys this year, but only 2nd and up. I have heard that teachers will be getting one. Not sure how I feel about it yet. Do you like them?

I do not like the fact that many programs I use on my pc and laptop are not on the Chromebooks-Microsoft office suite, etc. I also don't like that printing from these is very challenging (unless IT dept. takes on the task to set up a printer.)
