Hello everyone. I'm considering purchasing the Lenovo Z510 with 4th Generation Intel Core i3-4000M Processor (2.40GHz 1600MHz 3MB). Does anyone have this laptop? What are your thoughts?
Thanks!

This will work well for what you are asking with  room to grow. This is a semi-gaming laptop at the higher processor level and is a tad bit more than you need. An excellent choice.

Do you guys use any password manager? Which one would also work with Chrome OS? Thanks!

You can add an extra layer of security using a YubiKey.

Question for all you Chromie Insiders. What new hardware running Chrome OS are you expecting to see in the short and mid-term future? New models from Samsung, perhaps more powerful and with better screen resolutions (and hopefully the same price range)? New hardware manufacturers putting new products in the market? What do you think?

I have a 4-year-old Acer Aspire 4736Z, with Intel GMA 4500M graphics. I've been trying to install Mint and I always a "black screen". I googled this and this seems to be a very common issue with all Linux distro's for the past year or more. There are some workarounds on the internet but shouldn't be a permanent solution to this problem by now? 
I like Linux Mint a lot and I'd love to use it on my laptop but this issue is a real "deal breaker". I don't want to go back to Windows... :-(
Thanks, everyone!

+Fernando Ferreira you can remove the "quiet splash" options to show the boot process and maybe note any error messages. Also try to login (after boot finishes) via Ctrl+Alt+F1 and check logs using nano.

$ sudo nano /var/log/Xorg.0.log

I have a 4-year old Acer Aspire 4736Z laptop with an Intel graphics card. I tried and tried to install ubuntu but I always get the "black screen" problem. I tried several workarounds but nothing seems to work. I remember trying ubuntu in the past and it always worked flawlessly. Not anymore, it seems. I guess I'll have to go back to bloody Windows... :-(

Every time I bring my car in for service, I always have the feeling I've been ripped off. Their hour rates for labour are quite steep. They are quick to book appointments.

I attended a private function at the roof top. The food was good and the staff was friendly. Great river views.

Nothing special! I had Pho and it was just 'normal'.

I visit often to buy spices. It could be better managed, sometimes there are empty shelves, they don't restock frequently enough. Cashiers are friendly, staff is almost invisible.
