Friends of the sleek laptops and cloud services, the next days and weeks will go for me back in the direction of content clamshell design. Nevermind tablets and smartphones for some time and focus on the cases that are ultimately very personally important for us to create content. “Post PC era” gibberish or not, without a laptop I get simply nothing settled and I will sometimes quite difficult to assume that I belong to any minority.

As luck would have it, gave my Sony Vaio Z notebook (the 2011 model with Sandy Bridge) suitable for CeBIT his spirit (is now repaired) and left me looking for a replacement. This moment I have the Acer Aspire S7 11.6-inch Ultrabook found that not only looks incredibly posh, but also with Windows 8 and touch is delivered. If we disregard times of that 3 hours of battery life are an absolute disaster for me, I am indeed happy with the box, but not happy (which I still talk wordy in my endurance test).

These lines I write the way, just on the S7, while I begrudge me a delicious German breakfast in Berlin. 3 weeks San Francisco are around and yes, I have of course also what brought both directly from the local Best Buy in Mountain View, the Google headquarters so.

Because the piece is so good, the Samsung Chromebook Xe303c12 with Exynos 5250th 11.6-inch display (wonderfully matte) with a resolution of 1366 × 768, 2GB RAM and a 16GB SSD. The battery has 30Wh and should keep well for about 6 hours (I’m still working), the real highlight of the Chromebooks came to the conclusion: the keyboard. Friends of fast fingers, this keyboard is a true paradise and by far the best arrangement of individual keys that I’ve come across in recent years (especially in this fight price).

I am the way, have to decide for the wifi model, because my impulse purchase no 3G version was more available.

First impression after 2 days of hardcore use

Honestly? I’m seriously surprised how much of my digital life I can deal with the Samsung Chromebook. I would have a 3G version, then it would really always stuck in my backpack, because except for video editing I can do everything with the box! The performance is totally sufficient, the display could be a little brighter and for a slightly higher resolution I would have nothing wrong. For $ 249 I get here, but a lot of hardware and above all this madness keyboard, as the prolific writer would be a reason to buy for me!

Give me 3, 4 weeks and I may make a final recommendation. Until then, I switch between S7 and Chromebook, both together so times weigh just 2.3 lbs … not bad.

PS The German video has unfortunately passed on my SD card. I hope you get along with the English version.
