Google Octane Score: 7320

This is a small form factor chromebook laptop with all the bells and whistles you’d expect.  Webcam, wifi, bluetooth and all in a rugged package – perfect for the young user or someone who is always on the go and need a laptop that can stand up to day to day use which is not all in the office. The first rugged Chromebook on the market.  This is the tank of Chromebooks.  If you are working outside of an office – then this is a great choice for you.  This is not for taking with you in the pool – but rest assured, this Chromebook is for the on-the-go user.

As stated – you can use Google hangouts with the webcam. And if you need more storage – then add an SD card for more.  And if you want to add a monitor – use the HDMI port.

The processor in this Haier is the same as the processor in the Hisense Chromebook 12 and the Acer c720 – so you will see similar performance.

If you are the kind of geek that needs to have the odd ball stuff – then this is absolutely the chromebook for you.  This is the chromebook for “that guy”.

Sector 5 E1 Chromebook Review:

“My oldest now talks out loud while the computer types up her paper with the included software.”

“he screen is bright and clear, everything simple to use. Setup was painless and fast. I found I can really do everything on it.”

“I have been very pleased with this chromebook. I have an Acer chromebook and an Asus chromebox and the sector 5 chromebook compares favorably.”
