Anybody else using their Chromebook for Scouting work? or other youth service work?

I love taking it to meetings, and doing office like things, and letting the youth use it when they need to use a laptop for something. We're getting an hdmi projector specifically use for recruitment videos, slide shows, and using the chromecast for that.  (not campouts). 

I'm never fearful of them finding my personal docs like taxes, and if it takes a major fall and breaks, I'm not out $999 like a Macbook air. 

Just wanted to share, I'm an active Scouter in the USA, and I enjoy the potential of using technology to boost the program.

Yes, Chromecast. Why trouble yourself with hassles of a hdmi cable. When you can Chromecast. Also, if you forget or lose the CC. No worries. You spent more eating out last Friday night.

City of Chicago Microcenter has no chromebox available and snotty service about it. Trashed the product when I asked for availability.

+Kevin Majka I use a HDMI switcher for the monitor, 1 goes to my windows PC, the other to my chromebox. Then I have a cheap USB kvm for the keyboard/wireless mouse. Works great.....

+Eric Morgan It's $279.  I think Toshiba gives you good value. The 13.3" display is like going wide screen. It's bright and easier to see IMO.

Off to do social research. So not excited. Would rather be at the White Sox game.

Fleshed out 75% of an organization website with only a #Chromebook ... including image editing, document management and manipulation, and some text graphics. I'm super impressed. No hiccups. My mac does it better - but in a pinch this worked well. Experiment Complete via the #ToshibaChromebook.

Does anybody know what kind of AC cable is needed to connect to the Toshiba Chromebook power supply? Will any figure 8 cable do, or does it need something special? Only asking because I want an AC cable for my bag on campus and one hooked up at home.

Thank you for your help.

Cool! Thanks guys. My college library doesn't have a ton of outlets and this will help out a ton with getting a longer cable.

Finally used my chromebook in docked mode through my monitor which is a great IPS display. Worked great. While I would love to get a chromebox for myself, the Toshiba chromebook extended works well and will allow me to demo the chromebox experience for my mom who has an older Vista machine that just doesn't run all that great. Hopefully she'll be a google convert.

Yeah the only reason to get a chromebox at this point for me is to just not take the chromebook out of my bag. Going back to the Toshiba screen is a little rough after my IPS Dell display.
