Just got a Chrome Notebook here, for a week or so. Any good tips from other users here on Geekzone?

Samsung... Interesting.

Shame it can't access any local shared folders, so can't really play any content from LAN.

Disappointed with weight...

My HP dm1z (256GB SSD) weighs 1.510 Kg, and the Samsung Chrome (with "no storage") weighs 1.474 Kg.

I was expecting it to be a lot lighter.

Really?
The weight of an SSD (or even a 2.5"HDD) isn't a lot, so if they have similar screen and battery sizes I can't see they'd differ by much.
