Count me in on the "i bent the crap out of my charging pin" and it still works group. My samsung has even been set on an electric heater long enough for it to melt the top of it pretty bad along with my hinge. Still works. This things been dropped so many times in the time that I've owned it, a couple of times I had to reclip the plastic around the screen after it was dropped yet it still works.
I've also seen two of my friends have countless problems with their HP14s. My buddies had to send his back twice and just recently dropped it from a foot high onto carpet and broke the screen. Not to say that its a bad Chromebook but rather I question how much companies are willing to make these Chromebooks bullet proof for the price. Only exception I would like to think there being would be a Google Chromebook eg; samsung CB, HP11, Pixel and only because I can't see google letting a product they endorse being a crap one.
