Chromebook - CM Kid Tech analyst likes better than iPad

Graham likes the ease of logging in to the internet, the way it safely stores log-in passwords, for sending emails, and for writing research papers. His brother, Evan, likes the Chromebook for games. His sister, Hailey, likes a big iMac desktop, and his cousin Tillie prefers an iPad, especially for Facetime. Graham has tried them all, and likes the Samsung Chromebook. His test model was a Samsung Chromebook with Wi-Fi, about half the price of the ones in the Chromebooks for Casey drive - EW

A Chromebook is a small thin laptop for mostly internet reasons, like researching something or just browsing.

I like the Chromebook because whenever you go to a Google website or something like that where you have to log in (G-mail You tube etc.) you will already be logged in, if you have an account for it.

You can log in to the actual Chromebook using your G-mail account or maybe another Google related log in/account.

It is also useful for email purposes. You can also type emails on it. And speaking of typing, I am typing this on a Chromebook right now!

It can also be brought to cafe/coffee shop because of its portability to check emails.

I have seen lots of people with laptops at Sixth And Main Coffee House, which has free Wi-fi by the way!

It can be used by students too, at home, and at school!

If you have a research paper to do, you can research and even type it on this.

I like this even better than an iPad, and I thought that nothing could be better; but when typing on an iPad, the keyboard gets in the way but not on this!

This has all the traits and more of an I pad for less! smaller and better for the internet. You can get all this today for your self. Just go to your local laptop store and get yourself a CHROMEBOOK! -Graham Waggener, 5th Grade, Shelbyville, KY

Writing a CM Kids Tech review of Chromebook on Chromebook

2013-04-07 - Fortune Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Granddad. Graham composed the accompanying review on a Samsung Chromebook. This one is a barebones Wi-Fi model, about half the cost of the Chromebooks for Casey Kids. Graham says he likes it better than an iPad. He especially like the ease of typing and it's mobility. He uses several locations for the review: a daybed, a dining room table, and the back porch. He's used one frequently in his dad's coffee shop in Shelbyville. He thinks it's a neat idea to get 30 of them for the Casey kids. - Granddad
