Benjamin, General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight, sleek design, excellent for browsing the internet. Lots of people criticise it for needing the internet but there are plenty of games which work offline and the google office programmes all work offline, and I do not do anything else offline so its exactly like a normal laptop for me. Plus, anywhere I work, home, campus or a cafe all have free wifi anyway.
Bad points:
It doesn't have skype, and the chrome webstore is a little odd but still has everything you need.

Chris, Greenford General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Instant on, updates by itself, safe and secure

There is very little that you can do on a windows machine that cannot be done on a chromebook.

Search the Chrome Web Store to find all the necessary apps and you'll find yourself drifting away into the cloud...
Bad points:
none really.

John, Wivenhoe General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very light and easy to use. Virtually instant on is a great feature. Ideal for home use when you otherwise would struggle to get on the main desktop PC due to constant teanager demand.
Bad points:
Something new, compared with a PC, to learn about. Other than that it is very good. Not sure the extra cost of the 3G version is justified if is is intended for home use. Therefore I would advise the non 3G version which is a good bit cheaper.
