A laptop-shaped improvement to a tablet or smart phone The Samsung Series 3 runs the browser-based Chrome operating system. The Samsung Series 3 looks like a laptop, but it’s not. It’s equipped with a mobile processor and very little internal storage, and it runs the browser-based Chrome operating system instead of the Apple Mac OS X or Microsoft Windows platform.

If you’re looking to do much more than surf the web and create cloud-based content (via Google or another service), then this is not the laptop for you.
