+John Heckendorn​I was unaware that the resolution went back to 1080 for video. I might rethink my strategy. Thanks for the info. . .

I have a 3 day old acer c720 2gb model up for sale - mint shape cloud storage has not been redeemed.  $170 anyone interested.  Someone bought it for me as a gift but I have one.  Shipping to US only.

Wow!
Google inks a deal with VMWare to bring legacy Windows applications to its Chrome OS-powered Chromebooks and Chromeboxes. Read this article by Seth Rosenblatt on CNET News.

+Jo Stepaniak Agreed a million times over - I've been begging for a 1:1 Track Changes feature in Google Docs for years now.  Technically, they already have it - they just need to make the revision history better.

I just redeemed the terabyte of storage from my Dell 11, I didn't think Google would let me because I already had a terabyte from my pixel.  It did, now I have 2 terabytes!  I can upload my life to drive haha

What linux distros/desktops are people running on their chromebooks?  In the past I used crouton and I always leaned toward Unity.  I always have to tinker and this dell 11 seems like a fun machine to throw linux on...

Like +Kim Nilsson, I'm liking LXDE on a crouton trusty release. I've used LXDE on my little Raspberry Pi print server so I know it's pretty lightweight.

Ok guys I need some help - if you could have the toshiba chromebook 2 with 4gb or the dell chromebook 11 4gb and price was the same which would you go for?  Screen vs power here...

+Data Scavenger The Dell 11 is intelligently designed, built like a tank, and is a joy to use. Its TN panel, which is merely OK, is its weakest feature.

Had the toshiba chromebook 2 with 4gb in my cart for 279...a great deal. I didn't buy it, the bay trail processor bums me out. Anyone has performance issues or lag? I want a Hassell processor :-(

Has anyone put the acer c720 2gb head to head against the 4gb?  Any performance differences?  I have owned the 4 but not the 2...
