Rated 5 out of 5 by from a lot to like, some to dislikeThe only other Chromebook I've owned was a 720 with Core i3 processor, so most everything will be compared with that experience. The lag in performance is noticeable immediately, just opening apps or new tabs in Chrome. It actually matches the performance I've experienced in test-driving other Chromebooks that didn't have the i3, but I was still a little surprised considering how old those others had been. About a month in, and I'm still getting used to waiting.The form factor is nice, as one of the reasons I bought this model was for the convertible tablet aspect. It's a big tablet, and feeling the keyboard on the bottom is odd; however, I fly a lot, so it is nice to be able to keep this device out the entire time I'm on the plane instead of keeping it stowed until laptops are allowed. In laptop mode the keyboard is responsive and the keys have a comfortable travel. The touchpad is not as sensitive as what I'm used to on or my old Chromebook or Windows laptops, so there is a lot of re-clicking. I knew I was going to want more storage than the 32GB it came with, so I asked the question about how the SD card fits on the Lenovo product site. It was answered that the card sits flush with the body when inserted, but that is patently incorrect. Only about 2/5 of the card is inside the body, so most of it is sticking out, which means I am loathe to leave an SD card installed when I put it in my backpack. All that really means is using expandable storage is just as inconvenient as it was for me previously, but I don't appreciate a Lenovo rep providing a wrong answer. The screen is a pleasant surprise. It is 720p resolution, which suits me just fine, but the brightness and sharpness is outstanding. I am still regulalry attempting to turn down the brightness to save battery power when I realize I am only a couple of steps up from "off."The battery lasts as long as advertised, which was another reason I chose this model. As the backup device for both of my Windows laptops, I depend on it to be available to use after they go dead. I don't think it has died yet, even when I forgot the power cable on a 3-day trip. I also really like having a USB-C charging cable, as it juices my phone in no time.Play apps work great, almost across the board. The pre-loaded VLC player was giving me problems, but since I installed it from the Play Store it has worked perfectly. I haven't installed a ton of apps, but I haven't had any problems with functionality. I've had a few Android tablets, and Fire tablets, but the lagging performance and lack of keyboard always reminded me that they weren't Chromebooks. The 300e gives me the tablet convenience with Play apps and on an airplane while still providing the laptop experience. I had been considering an iPad, but that would be my only Apple device. Considering the price equivalence with the entry-level iPad, and already being firmly planted in the Google ecosphere, this device checks a lot of boxes for me. I can live with the SD card sticking out and the slight patience required for responsiveness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect laptop for school environment!I'm an ELA teacher who's school is heavily Google classroom oriented. This laptop is perfect, being able to use any pencil as a stylus works so well when correcting papers digitally. It has all the ports I need especially HDMI which I need to connect to projectors. It's amazingly durable, feels good, and although some images make it seem bulky, it's really not and not that heavy at all. I actually carry two laptops around this one and my school issued laptop, this is way lighter. Soild quality, and most importantly it's affordable to the point where if it gets lost or stolen I can buy a new one! CON: Although you can use a pencil as a stylus, because there isn't a dedicated stylus the os is regular. So an extra stlyus menu or palm rejection are things you won't find here. Maybe upgrade to the 500e if you are a heavy stylus user. I just needed it to highlight and write on PDFs a bit. But if I was an artist or something more I would need a dedicated stylus Chromebook. I buy a lot of electronics and while I'm waiting for the pixelbook 2 this definitely has me considering if I'll even get it or not ...... Sike nah I'm going to get the PB2, but this is still a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great laptop, super portableThis laptop works really well! It's portable so I take it with me a lot. The major problem is it has an ARM processor, which means compatibility problems sometimes. A great laptop for the price. It also has a great battery life ... I charge it at night and it goes until 7 or 8 in the evening
