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.

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.
