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with the absence of next-gen internet standards such as 4G and 802.11ac Wi-Fi, means that it could soon start feeling out of date.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.

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.
