40% Samsung Series 5 550 Chromebook review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Retailing for £370, the Samsung Series 5 550 Chromebook's reliance on the internet, less than stellar build quality and sub-par components add up to make it feel overpriced. While we like the Chrome OS's user interface and are impressed with how well the device works when connected to the internet, the 550's limitations combined with the UK's lack of universal Wi-Fi coverage make it a poor choice for business users.

Samsung Series 5-550 Chromebook Review: The Chromebook Matures

What’s important is how well the griddle cooks your bacon – and in this case, it serves up a crispy plate of goodness better than any other product on the market for the same price.

However, its limited tech, along with the absence of next-gen internet standards such as 4G and 802.11ac Wi-Fi, means that it could soon start feeling out of date. The Samsung Series 5 Chromebook is a decent computer, and an improvement on its competitors, but it doesn't quite answer the Chromebook conundrum.

Thanks to the fact that the Series 5 550 Chromebook runs only web apps, there’s nothing to back up. Your documents are automatically backed up in Google Drive. When composing an email, you can attach files from Drive, as well as pin files (mark them) for offline viewing. This also has the advantage that, should your Chromebook be lost, damaged or stolen, you can carry on from where you were simply by logging into your Google account when you get a new one.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.
