Do any members have personal accounts on purchasing refurbished Acer C720's from e-bay vendors? I'm about to order two.

Never from eBay. Once from Groupon. Came in flawless condition.

I have, and have had, Samsung equipment.  The hardware is mostly great.  Software pretty good too, tho usually too feature rich and bloated.  However, if you look at comments in the link above you can see a very high percentage of 'poor customer service'.  This one thing is bringing Samsung down.  I hope they realize before it's too late - if it isn't already.

On January 16, Weekly Women's GMO Free News will launch a Google Hangout series entitled "Scientifically Speaking: Expert Panel Discuss GMOs, US Health and Pesticides In/On Food."  https://plus.google.com/events/crl4aen1gbdv4lf2arlta7q12qo

With money bring raised through a crowd-sourcing campaign,  I am seeking to purchase Chromebooks for retired scientists to participate in the webinar series.  

What USB to ethernet adapters don't work?
Would the video quality of a 2GB unit with a Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 (video compressed in webcam) be as good as 4GB units with build-in HD webcams?
Based on price/performance, what model would work best for Google Hangouts?

Works great, but durability issues. sometimes you will have to reboot for the network connection to show up. Do not accidentally pull on the network cable too hard it will break the plastic where the cable plugs into.
