The screen is fantastic on this. But if you do struggle with small text you can either ctrl+ in web pages or just change the resolution of the device, 1536x864 is a nice compromise between hd and full hd.

It's my option so yes it's small in my option also text size is issue after comparing the text size on a similar sized MacBook it would seem the only way to really increase text size is my downgrading the resolution which is a bit pointless.

I did try changing the resolution and yes it did help but why should I have to change the resolution ?
When for example a MacBook the text looks fine on a similar sized screen at Full HD .

The real problem here is that ChromeOs needs better Scaling, its an example where Google make great software but as they don't control hardware sometimes the end user is left with these kind of issues.

I don't own a mac but Apples ehos is that hardware and software should blend together perfectly . So I would suggest the best Chromebook would be the Pixel one.

Anyway I also found the down cursor key very cheap and clicky.
If you want a cheap device for surfing the web its ok for that.
Ultimately I want one device that is good for games, internet, work, so I have gone for a Dell Inspiron 15, 7559
