00:01:09 – see USB and regular use be a USBC and
00:01:20 – it's us bc which is also for charging
00:01:22 – the laptop so you're going to have to
00:01:24 – have some kind of Wi-Fi not too sure how
00:01:27 – well these support the USB to ethernet
00:01:31 – adapters but i'm sure it you should be
00:01:34 – able to violent for it but I want to go
00:01:36 – ahead and set it up to connect to my
00:01:38 – Wi-Fi network play book
00:01:47 – the highest quality setting that is
00:01:49 – pretty loud
00:01:50 – pretty impressive features a large bit
00:01:54 – yeah the video was good it's not top it
00:01:59 – all sounds pretty great I'm actually
00:02:03 – impressed with the sounds I think you'll
00:02:05 – be happy with it if you get the laptop
00:02:07 – so who is this laptop good for so i
00:02:13 – would say if you are a person who is
00:02:17 – because most of the stuff on the web so
00:02:20 – if you're like on gmail and I'm you too
00:02:23 – and you surf the web alot and you don't
00:02:27 – use a specialized programs like
00:02:29 – engineering software or any other
00:02:31 – software like the adobe premiere they'll
00:02:36 – be photoshopped that kind of stuff then
00:02:38 – I think this laptop will work just fine
00:02:40 – for you so what about on if I need you
00:02:45 – know you need to edit or documentary
00:02:48 – seller powerpoint are you are left with
00:02:52 – this laptop no because I'm with the
00:02:55 – google driving and google docs you can
00:02:59 – actually import a or document
00:03:09 – so here you see I can actually go in and
00:03:12 – i cannot i can edit it
00:03:16 – ok and then what you can do is you can
00:03:19 – actually save as a google doc file to
00:03:29 – see here safe and to your online google
00:03:31 – docs and once say you can go ahead and
00:03:37 – make any yet it
00:03:38 – testing and what you can do is and
00:03:50 – blasters and editing on google docs you
00:03:52 – can go ahead and go to file download as
00:03:57 – microsoft word document so you can still
00:04:02 – do your your kind of business stuff for
00:04:04 – your editing or documents Excel and even
00:04:07 – powerpoint so just keep in mind those
00:04:10 – it's going to be a couple more sets but
00:04:13 – it is totally doable
00:04:15 – now what about where do I save my files
00:04:20 – right because this is a Chromebook so I
00:04:24 – just come this particular model this
00:04:26 – comes with 16 gigs of internal storage
00:04:30 – and eight of those gigs already used by
00:04:35 – the operating system so you're left with
00:04:37 – about eight gigs which is not very much
00:04:41 – and so you're kind of left with kind of
00:04:46 – independent google dress now the Google
00:04:48 – Drive you get about it being extreme but
00:04:51 – if you want more than that UIC are
00:04:53 – qualified for a promotion when you buy a
00:04:58 – Chromebook they have a special deal for
00:05:00 – you and he doesn't deal
00:05:03 – ok so as far as an online storage to go
00:05:08 – to google.com / probook / offers you're
00:05:12 – going to see an offer the qualified for
00:05:14 – a city by the Chromebook so the first
00:05:17 – one is that
00:05:18 – you can get 90 days of google play music
00:05:21 – free and after that it's going to be 999
00:05:27 – offer months after the trial ends but
00:05:31 – the other one is you can get 100
00:05:34 – gigabytes of google drive storage for
00:05:37 – two years three charges 847 dollar value
00:05:41 – so you can you know when you buy your
00:05:44 – Chromebook you know you're going to have
00:05:46 – access to wonder gigs of google drive
00:05:49 – space for two years
00:05:51 – not that it's a little down or you can
00:05:55 – continue to to pay for the google dress
00:05:58 – subscription so it's really a few now I
00:06:02 – offer a third option which is this
00:06:06 – laptop has an SD card slot that you can
00:06:12 – actually eat when you put the card in
00:06:15 – there goes all the way in i'll show you
00:06:17 – so given the Chromebook have a full-size
00:06:21 – SD card you can just buy a 64 or even
00:06:27 – 120 gig the car not sure what the
00:06:30 – maximum support but you know even 64 is
00:06:34 – more than what on the internal storage
00:06:37 – kind of put in there and you can see its
00:06:40 – kind in there i'm going to be in the way
00:06:41 – and you can just use that to save all
00:06:45 – your files and stuff and leave it in
00:06:46 – there and that you were still be playing
00:06:48 – for you
00:06:49 – so anyway I SD cards are these are
00:06:52 – pretty cheap so that's you know this is
00:06:55 – what I want to go with just because I
00:06:57 – don't want to depend on storage now with
00:07:00 – google docs and even gmail and all that
00:07:03 – you have the op flying mode extensions
00:07:08 – so what you can do is you can get the
00:07:12 – extension to use google drive and route
00:07:16 – email in offline mode so when to get the
00:07:20 – extension will actually sync up your
00:07:23 – everything is in the cloud and Google's
00:07:26 – rise to the local story so that I you're
00:07:30 – not
00:07:31 – make it to the internet you can go ahead
00:07:32 – and work on your files and then once you
00:07:36 – connect I student it it will sync up you
00:07:38 – know this minimal effort so some other
00:07:43 – things about this laptop in it every day
00:07:45 – like the touchpad trackpad hear it
00:07:48 – worked pretty well for me very
00:07:49 – responsive keywords I Senate will break
00:07:53 – the keyword you know this is good as the
00:07:55 – thousand-dollar a novel laptop even
00:07:58 – though it's only copy a hundred two
00:08:00 – hundred again screen was not very great
00:08:04 – because of the viewing angle problems
00:08:05 – the webcam was not very good so it's
00:08:10 – just you know the quality is that not
00:08:12 – very good so we're going to be doing a
00:08:14 – lot of stuff on video out the webcam i
00:08:19 – don't recommend this laptop
00:08:21 – I mean it's enough to get by but not you
00:08:23 – know the colors of washed-out and
00:08:26 – not-so-good the microphone refine the
00:08:31 – speakers were really well so when you're
00:08:33 – watching videos sound like the sounds
00:08:35 – coming from the front of the laptop even
00:08:37 – those speakers are down here so i
00:08:41 – believe is a speaker there and there's
00:08:44 – another speaker here so even though it
00:08:47 – down there it's not muffled at all
00:08:49 – it totally sounds like sounds coming
00:08:51 – from the front of the laptop and as far
00:08:54 – as I'm the volume setting it is highest
00:08:59 – setting is you know it's not enough
00:09:03 – I'll but I mean if you wanted really
00:09:05 – loud where you're going to be like maybe
00:09:09 – another room you want to listen to it
00:09:11 – it's going to be loud enough so yes you
00:09:13 – have to be kind of near it and one
00:09:17 – didn't like is this button here where it
00:09:19 – needs it so I don't think that I can you
00:09:23 – and one you but it turns out it into you
00:09:26 – you have to get one of the other buttons
00:09:28 – for increasing more lowering the logging
00:09:31 – to get the sound back to work
00:09:33 – that was a little odd that i can't mute
00:09:35 – and unmute with the same button so yeah
00:09:38 – in terms of a little quality like it is
00:09:41 – just as good as a thousand-dollar laptop
00:09:43 – so i was really impressed with that as
00:09:45 – far as the chrome OS operating system i
00:09:47 – was really impressed with it
00:09:49 – ok so here my final thoughts on doesn't
00:09:52 – know whole thing that 13-inch Chromebook
00:09:55 – so overall I was really impressed with
00:09:58 – it even it only paid about a hundred
00:10:01 – ninety five dollars on amazon so it for
00:10:05 – us
00:10:05 – so 200 laptop you know as far as the
00:10:10 – build quality
00:10:12 – this is just as good as a
00:10:13 – thousand-dollar laptop
00:10:15 – ok so i've used other the noble laptop
00:10:19 – and this is you know kind of part with
00:10:21 – it in terms of build quality
00:10:24 – now what are some cons about the laptop
00:10:28 – i would say the biggest con boss's
00:10:30 – laptop is the screen even though it's a
00:10:33 – nice 13 screen the viewing angle maybe
00:10:38 – you can see it or not is not very great
00:10:42 – so vertically viewing angles not very
00:10:45 – great
00:10:46 – there's a there's like a sweet spot
00:10:47 – where you wear it looks really good as
00:10:52 – far as side again not very good
00:10:56 – you can probably see there there as I
00:10:59 – turn it it looks that is good from a
00:11:06 – different viewing angles so just keep
00:11:09 – that in mind that you do get what you
00:11:11 – pay for
00:11:12 – for the screen
