Samsung Chromebook Series 5 Review

rottenSoul google docs is just not there (136 comments)

I've tried the web apps for both word and excel on google and the functionality seems lacking

Spreadsheets wrap in columns by default and there's no way to span columns. The word processor doesnt support any kind of labels templates or layouts I could see.

Maybe I hit the missing functions each time, but the apps do seem antiquated right now
