This Is The Biggest Chromebook I’ve Seen Updated on November 19, 2019 By William Clement 100 Comments By William Clement 100 Comments S11DJ August 31, 2018 I have no clue how anyone, let alone a student could cope just living in the ChromeOS world. Maybe I’m just getting old. Reply Meysam Kiani August 31, 2018 Not only review it but also try to make me understand this operating system why the lovely android tablet is gone and this weird OS is becoming the alternative Reply Black Fire August 31, 2018 Yes review Reply Carmen Nooner August 31, 2018 A review would be interesting if done from a desktop experience first and foremost. Something this size, as you stated, would not be my first choice as a take along on a trip, etc. In fact, I can't honestly see myself lugging this around from place to place in my tiny apartment just to watch some videos, therefore making a lackluster battery less appealing. But if it could actually do a bit of work, then leaving it on my desk near an outlet would be okay. Still wishing the Pixel would come down to a more affordable and competitive price. That's the dream Chromebook for me! Reply Walt Taylor August 31, 2018 Full review Reply Mr. bonus August 31, 2018 This guy has really high quality videos right up there with mkbhd Reply Mitch Pickelsimer August 31, 2018 Would love to see a in depth review of the Yoga Chromebook!!!! Reply Ola Lilliehöök August 31, 2018 Why the gigantic bezel? Reply Surbhit Jain August 31, 2018 0:36 he is the only youtuber to display such a tech spec sheet…. it gives all needed into about the device at a glance…. its so so useful… thanks buddy Reply Kris Bright August 31, 2018 15.6 inches used to be the standard notebook/laptop size, now you're calling it massive. Massive in my opinion would be the Acer Predator 21x. It has a 21inch curved IPS screen and weighs 17.7 pounds! Reply İbne Piçin Tekiyim August 31, 2018 I really don't understand what demographic this machine refers to. Reply Jeremy Tanudtanud August 31, 2018 can you make a video when Google makes chrome os supports linux apps? Reply Niko Achtzehn August 31, 2018 My next Linux coding machine maybe. Reply Mark A. Stephens August 31, 2018 I would actually consider getting this to replace my aging Macbook, which has been resigned to just watching Netflix & other like content. Reply Nedim Šišić August 31, 2018 Can you install Windows 10 on it? It has such nice specs and build quality and it would go nice with Windows 10 as well. Some people like me want a more flexible OS(not just cloud based and relatively limited as far as software is concerned). At 549$, a near bezelless screen, touchscreen, 8th gen core i5 and a sleek aluminum chassis it seems like a pretty good laptop especially for the money. Just not my type of OS. Reply J-Red August 31, 2018 Review review review!!!😋 Reply Hannessomething August 31, 2018 You think a 15.6" thin bezel laptop is huge?Try using a 17.3" laptop with thick bezels! Portability is terrible.Compared to that, I love the portability of a thin bezel 15.6" laptop.That said, the one I use is a much more capable machine that completely replaces my desktop with its windows 10, an Nvidia quadro M1200, i7 7700HQ, 16gb of ram and a 512gb M.2 pcie ssd. Reply Slifer7564 September 1, 2018 I love that wallpaper on your yoga book I've seen it on a couple other laptops what is it? Reply Nicholas Lovan September 1, 2018 why Reply muhammad abyate September 1, 2018 no Reply Richard Servello September 1, 2018 I don't understand your hatred of Pixelbook. I've had one since release and I don't see how you think it's restrictive. There is nothing I can't do on it that I would want to do in an ultralight portable. Reply InvisiMan September 1, 2018 Am I missing something here? It's a 15" screen…. Not big at all. I miss using my Dell 17" laptop! That thing was huge and not practical for travel. Reply Karry Johnson September 1, 2018 But can it handle gaming? I ask because of the 8th gen it processor. Is there a certain graphics card it uses? Reply Jamie Richard September 1, 2018 I use a Lenovo Yoga 3 running Windows with a similar sized screen and I like it. This is interesting to me. Full review plz! Reply LogicTech September 1, 2018 I like it Reply FusionHarry ಠ益ಠ September 1, 2018 yo guys just install windows on it plus it might be even cheaper than its windows counterpart and also the specs are pretty good Reply Trent Burch-Bowser September 1, 2018 The idea of a Chromebook on a screen this size with the specs it has generally depends on the target audience. I would see this for someone who wants to use this for media consumption, browsing the web, and like to Android apps which this will run. Linux app support will be coming down the pike to such Chromebooks sometime in October with Version 69. I own a Lenovo Flex 11 Chromebook and while that machine costs a third of what this machine is, I would find such specs better or at least on par to my Flex 5 Windows machine. While this may not be ideal for those who do heavy multimedia work (such as Mr Mobile here), it definitely caters to the average user who don't want all the "bloat" that a Windows machine may come with (depending on how one feels about Windows as an OS platform). It is also far cheaper than any MacBook I have seen, especially for the specs that it comes with. The only caveat I would watch for is going for the 4K display as that generally uses more power than the full HD but of course you also have to weigh in on the hard drive space between the two. Reply David Iman II September 1, 2018 Definitely review please 🙂 Reply emilward85 September 1, 2018 That's nothing. I have an old 17" Toshiba Satellite L675D that I got for $200 back in 2011. Over the years I upgraded the AMD CPU to a quad-core, RAM to 8GB, and swapped out the HDD for a 120 SSD. Since everything I do is from Chrome and I didn't feel like buying another laptop, I installed Neverware's CloudReady OS. You think a 15 inch Chromebook is something? Try a 17! I LOVE it! Reply GiraffeStrafe September 1, 2018 Next year I get to use a laptop, but my school is not allowing chromeos. Its annoying cause i have a limited budget Reply Dr. King Schultz September 1, 2018 Stupidest product ive seen in awhile. Not so portable chromebook that wants you to be plugged in? WTF? Reply X September 1, 2018 A 4 minute ad, ffs Reply CEKROM September 1, 2018 The face on the thumpnail says very much =D Reply Marouan Bellamy September 1, 2018 No Reply Paul Enriquez-Goehring September 1, 2018 I'd definitely like to see a review of this massive Chromebook Reply Paul Ho September 1, 2018 How do people forget about the original and previously only 15.6 inch Chromebook, the Acer 15? Amazing battery, decent screen and no contest speakers. Reply Stefan Schöllauf September 1, 2018 I dont really get why anyone should use a chromebook when you can have an android tablet with a keyboard. but at least the price is ok. Reply Darius Andrei September 1, 2018 I know there are a lot of comments telling how good you are … But here is another one. Reply Drazen Tor September 1, 2018 Impressive….

Reply Parker's NBA Videos September 1, 2018 The $599 price tag blew my mind. I thought with such a huge screen and good-looking build, it'd be priced over the Pixelbook. Reply Argha Deep Saha September 1, 2018 Yea a review please Reply Sanu September 1, 2018 Never buying a Lenovo ever again Reply yanksrock1000 September 1, 2018 I miss 17 inch laptops… Reply Khue Truong September 2, 2018 That's cool, I'll wait to see what the Pixelbook 2 has to offer Reply The KROCZ September 2, 2018 The perfect chromebook Reply Saurabh Gadekar September 2, 2018 The frequency of videos is going up, eh? Not that we are complaining… Keep it coming, Mike! Love your videos. Reply Mihnea Lazăr September 2, 2018 64 gigs in 2018? This is even overcome by some smartphones. I think you can barely download a movie and have some more powerful apps on it. And the top model only 128? Note has 512 GB… I guess it’s one of the cheapest 4K screens though Reply Niko217 September 2, 2018 What's with the massive bottom bezel? Reply Nick September 2, 2018 I'd love a full review of the new Lenovo! Keep up the great coverage!!! Reply Jorge Orellana September 2, 2018 Review mister mobile! Please Reply Elmer Davis September 2, 2018 Acer has had a 15.6" Chromebook for years. Reply fourex59 September 3, 2018 I would appreciate a review of this machine. Thanks! Reply John Ledbetter September 3, 2018 Okay lol. Calm down, Acer has been building 15 inch Chromebooks for a while Reply Joe Ng September 3, 2018 Gonna buy this and turn this into powerful workstation via vps for my cpu intensive work. Looks premium on a budget. Reply nulitun 2018 September 3, 2018 Nulituntun Reply George Isenhart September 3, 2018 I am really enjoying my Acer Chromebook 15, Unlike Windows I am not sweating running out of Hard Drive Space, It doesn't freeze up nearly as often and for what I use a computer for it is absolutely perfect, That being web browsing, Candy Crush, Email and Facebook. I'll never need any more. Reply Waffle II September 3, 2018 Why can’t Lenovo build all of their laptops like this? Premium metal business laptops >>>>>> cheap plastic gaming laptops (when it comes to design) Reply Todd Bell September 3, 2018 that's a beautiful laptop. I love your chromebook videos, so yes, I would love to see you review it <3 Reply Shayantan tech vids September 3, 2018 Great video but ok product from lenovo. Reply Dan Chase September 3, 2018 From a public school prospective, this is great for teachers when the kids have smaller cheaper Chromebooks. Reply Stephen A. September 4, 2018 Have the Acer 14 CB3-431. 250.00 from Costco, with a sleeve and wireless mouse. Love it. Wish it was a tad faster, but that is only because I am coming off a failing 2015 Pixel Chromebook with the i5-8GB. But this new Lenovo has me very intrigued. 🙂 Reply Im Beast September 4, 2018 4gb ram? Reply Sam Veale September 5, 2018 Love your thoughts as always. Definitely would like a review when you can. I definitely think the Chromebook market is one to be watched in the future especially for folks who find some OS complicated.

Big screen makes it so much easier to be produktive in side by side window mode and stuff. Love my Chromebook 🙆🏼♂️ Reply Jhaz Fernando September 6, 2018 Subscribed for the clear audio, no over reacting emotions and being a tony stark look-alike Reply The Last European September 6, 2018 Maybe someone can explain this to me, how can a chrome book with simmilar specs to a regular laptop only cost 60% ? Somehow I think that it can't be just windows…. Because then if I would like to use Linux anyway why would I buy a regular Laptop ? Thanks Reply Neuvalence 優美 September 7, 2018 With Linux coming to ChromeOS, I would definitely buy this. Reply David Nielson September 7, 2018 I would love to see you review Chromebooks.

The video doesn't give any serious analysis of the chromebook's hardware capabilities but it is not a review as such. I don't think it was worth making a video with this scant amount of content. Reply Niyaaz Rahman September 17, 2018 15.6 inch laptops are not big, they were the average few years back Reply elvisg7 September 21, 2018 I will watch any review done by MrMobile.

Its only been used in almost every school for a few years now Reply John G October 6, 2018 Quick question, are you doing your video editing on a Chromebook or PC? Reply Nabarun Paul October 24, 2018 Can I pls pls review this product! Reply Hassan Bakhsh November 2, 2018 True story, before go to sleep i always watch your reviews. something about your voice, tone, well planned script, and music relaxes me. Also you always have the best information i look for ! Reply YourComputerExpert November 3, 2018 I am little confused… since when exactly are 15.6inch laptops big? That's a super super average laptop size. The most common I would say. Reply TechPimp November 29, 2018 I didn't see the 4K version in the website to buy. Reply TechPimp November 29, 2018 I like it for video editing and now that it supports Linux Debian and Android apps it's now getting closer to being a true pro machine. Reply rstravis December 11, 2018 Just picked this up. Gone are the days when you sacrifice capability by going with ChromeOS. Android Apps were a plus. Linux apps without any hacking, though, is a game-changer. It's kind of big, sure, but no bigger than the Asus Windows machine I've been using at home. But it is SO much faster. ChromeOS is lightweight. On a cheaper machine, Linux apps could bog it down. But not here. With the 8 gigs of ram and powerful i5 (I got the Best Buy version — normally $700, but on sale right now for $600), I like using this every bit as much as I ever liked my old Pixel LS. It's fast, it's smooth, and now with native Linux app support, it can do pretty much anything I've ever needed to do, including running GIMP (similarly capable to Photoshop). And it can do much of this WITHOUT being online. Honestly, I've owned a lot of laptops, but three of them have stood out. My old Pixel LS (which was still lacking at the time because ChromeOS was more limited), and my old MacBook Pro. Honestly, I like using this every bit as much as my old MBP (by old I mean 3 years ago). It's not the 4K. But the screen is more than sufficient. And it's speedy, and doesn't slow me down as much as Windows would. So in my mind, it's really the best of both worlds. Only problems:1) Speakers aren't great2) If you're not comfortable with the command line, adding linux apps could have a bit of a learning curve. I've been a linux user for many years, so it's no big deal to me. The integration of Linux and Google Play apps leaves some to be desired, but I've read that that'll be remedied when ChromeOS updates to version 71 (it's on 70 right now). So fingers crossed. But even if not, this is still a joy to use. And it's extremely well-built. It may not be your cup of tea, and that's fine. But the size is not at all ridiculous if you consider the capabilities and how it really can compete with Windows and Mac for users who are comfortable using the command line. Reply rkl08551 December 26, 2018 acer has had one for almost 2 years… Reply thetruth January 6, 2019 Most laptops I have used have 15 inch screens. Call me when you have a 17 inch chrome laptop.
