I recently purchased a Chromebook. It’s the 720 with the touch screen. My teenage son eschews such things – mostly (I believe) because there’s no horsepower for video games. It appeals to me now however, because, well- the bulk of what I’m donig with any given computer right now- is online.
It’s taking a little getting used to. I feel like I should be downloading apps for it. But primarily, no – it’s a browser. It IS it’s own app.
Some people don’t like it because they feel that Google and Amazon are taking over everything. To that I say — HUZZAH! If Amazon and Google run as co-candidates for Prez-VeePee – I’m voting that way! They certainly can’t fuck up the economy and the environment any worse than the current sitch.
So here I type-a-dee type on my UBERFAST chromebook. Sending you this important information over the interbleg-iddy-blogs. Info you need- RIGHT NOW!
So far – I love it. It’s like a C3P0 in a compact. It sleeps when it needs to, then pos up at a moments notice. Ready to serve! I predict that I will be smitten with it for quite some time. It ain’t no typewriter of course, but hey! Very few machines can be perfect.
