Brilliant if the charging point wasn't so flimsy

"Love the chromebook but the charging point is extremely flimsy and has broken once already after 2 months! Am really wary of charging it. There is an expert review on the american samsung site about the very same issue. Wish I'd have seen this before my purchase. Everyone thinks it's brilliant at first then the issues with the charger kick in. Any review where the user has had over 1 month of use complains about the power pin unit! Please sort it out Samsung, every mag review mentions it!"
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations

Good product, woeful build quality

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

"My chromebook was fantastic for a few months. Then the screen cracked spontaneously. I don't mean that I was watching it and it just broke, but that I opened the screen, in an entirely non-violent and ordinary manner, and it broke. I have since seen hundreds of reviews of similar cases. Seriously, don't buy one."
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Did not meet expectations, terrible durability
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
