There she is. We took the liberty of removing a full lid protective film before snapping this. Later, we’ll be adding some fingerprints to that shiny cover.
Despite rapid start-up being one of Chrome OS’s best assets, the Samsung Series 5’s initial boot takes a while. You’ll need a Wi-Fi connection to get going and then you’ll have to sit through a system update. Boring, but it’s only this once.
While that’s going on, we can admire the chiclet keyboard…
… and these ports (USB and mini VGA). There’s a bundled adaptor for the latter, and a second USB slot – sans plastic cover – on the other side. There’s also an SD card reader.
And there you have it – the Samsung Series 5 fired up and in full instructional flow. Keep your peepers on Stuff.tv for a full review soon.
