After a few more weeks in I have to say - I still think the HP 14 4g chromebook is the best chromebook below a pixel based on all the chromebooks I have owned. I still love it, it just works and the battery life is amazing.
Guys I need help big time!!! My cousin Lindsays husband needs white blood cells. This is not a hijacked post its life or death for Craigs he is not even 30 yet! Please repost this if you may know anyone in the Chicago area...
So I need to ask for help. The blood bank here at UIC said that we will be running short for donations of WHITE blood cells during the xmas/new years week. Craig needs white blood cells in order to fight his pneumonia to prep him for his stem cell transplant. The information we have gathered so far is that donors would need to be type O+ or O- . There would be a need to take a one time steroid the night before donation and donation takes about 2 hours. They would filter out your white cells and give you back the rest. Donation needs to take place the same day Craig would get them transfused, so you would be committing to a day the week of xmas/ new years. For info please call 3129966970 and let them know you would like to donate WHITE CELLS to Craig Paluch. Thank you soooo much if I can answer any other questions please message me. Also as far as I know it would need to be here at the UIC Blood bank 1740 W Taylor St Chicago. I am waiting to hear if there are other possible donation sites. I truly cant thank everyone enough for spreading the word like wildfire!
+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.
After going through a lenovo ultrabook, surface pro 2, I went and bought a macbook pro with retina display. It's pretty... I put windows on it to handle some things I need for school. It was a pain in the @ss, in the end both windows and mac are craptastic. I would use my chromebook 14 over any of these machines any day.
I unfortunately had to resort to buying a traditional machine after trying the Acer C720 for two months (Amazon's return policy is insanely long). I tried using it for my side business which involves web/software development. It worked better than expected, and it wasn't the chromebook's (or chrome os) fault - it was actually ubuntu's fault as I ran into dependency hell losing my trackpad and other key features after installing updates. I also needed the machine to install Citrix Receiver for remote support of my daily day-to-day job and that was an impossibility as well. I also do a otn of video editing and the C720, albeit was pretty god, the software in linux stinks.
I too bought a Macbook Pro (15" with discrete GPU) and I love it. But there was something about that C720 that just made my geeky insides all excited.
Anyone interested in a mint condition HP 11 with green trim comes in original box and is about a month old? I will include original charger that will soon be exchangeable for a new one...make me an offer.
