    Hey everyone,

    I've been using the Asus Chromebook C302 for the past month and picked up the Samsung Chromebook Plus today. I wanted to open this thread for any questions from someone who may be on the fence. First off I'll say:

    - The display on the Samsung is GORGEOUS. I just turned it on to set it up and I can't look away.
    - The 3:2 aspect ratio of the Samsung feels nicer to hold as a tablet, at least initially. I'll see which is more comfortable over the next few days.
    - No comments on battery life of the Samsung yet since I'm just setting it up. I get about 6 hours on the Asus and I hope I can get more from the ARM chip in the Samsung.

    Please feel free to ask anything about either of these devices, and enjoy the pics.

    I look forward to reading your observations on these two models as I'm deciding between both right now...and/or if I should wait for the Pro.

    The only issue I've seen is that Microsoft's Office apps aren't supported on the Samsung Chromebook. Everything else works as it should.

    I'm assuming those are more developed than the 365 web apps?

    Haven't tried the Office 365 web apps for more than a few minutes, but I prefer Android apps. They have a few more features, a better interface and it's easier to save the files to my Google Drive rather than the OneDrive storage on my school 365 account.
