There’s a new way for #GoogleApps users to manage their Hangouts. You'll find a clean new interface, making it even easier to see your upcoming video meetings or to start a new one.

Try it now at g.co/hangouts.

I've been using a Samsung Chromebook exclusively for 2.5 weeks, I hate it

Let's back track a little. I bought the Samsung Chromebook a year ago and loved it. In fact, multiple times over the past year I've praised the device, being able to meet my needs when using it. It's cost effective and I always got the job done, or so I thought.

You see, I never used the Samsung Chromebook as a main computer. I used it as a backup or alternative computer or for certain minor tasks. For those minor tasks, the Chromebook shined. For every day, real world work, I can't use it and doing so frustrates the hell out of me.

I moved into a new house a two and a half weeks ago. The new house doesn't have an office or make shift office for my daily social media and work needs. While we build my office in the basement, I decided to use my Samsung Chromebook as my main means of computing since it worked in the past whenever I had used it. I decided not to setup my desktop in some make shift fashion in the dining room or spare living room, assuming I could just use the Chromebook. Boy was I wrong.

The Exynos processor inside this Samsung Chromebook just can't handle multiple tasks or real world work. Because of this, I haven't been writing for +Android News by Phandroid  and my posts here on G+ have suffered. I can't do research, opening multiple tabs, this is the absolute worst. Trying to research a topic to post about, switching back and forth is so painfully slow. Hell, opening Gmail takes over 60 seconds and don't even think about using a Hangout and doing another task such as taking notes or researching while you're talking. It's just too damn slow. So slow that it angers me to the point where I don't want to use it, hence my lack of good content.

Tomorrow I'll be setting my desktop, chair, and a small table up in my dinning room so that I can use my desktop to do my work and posting. As usual, I'll do all of it inside Chrome. Chrome works for me. The Samsung Chromebook does not.

Ultimately, I need to purchase the new Intel based Acer C270 or a Chromebook Pixel (if I can convince myself that it's worth the price). The low end Chromebooks just don't cut it anymore.

Have you experienced similar issues trying to use the Samsung Chromebook or the HP Chromebook, both of them have the same CPU.
