Can anyone recommend a text editor with the following "programmer" or "web developer" features? It's one of the very few things that keeps me feeling attached to Macs (TextWrangler and BBEdit can do these things.) I don't care if it's a Chrome app or and Android app. I would be a huge help.

Syntax color highlighting of HTML, PHP, Bash / Shell, CSS, and Perl

Switch between linefeed, carriage return, and both line endings (Unix, Mac, and Windows standards)

Offline editing

Editing over SFTP. Opening and saving the files via an extension to Files app is fine, too.

Regular expressions based search

Regular expression based find-and-replace

I have the same device. The extension I would like to recommend is called "Extensions Manager aka Switcher". What it does is allow you to not only turn on and off extentions, but turn the "switch" on applications as well. This frees up a lot of RAM without having to uninstall anything and will greatly improve your performance.

I'd be much more impressed if Epson gave us a native print driver for ChromeOS like HP does. . .

The Acer Chromebook 14 is PCMag's editor's choice!
"The Acer Chromebook 14 has a 14-inch 1080p HD IPS screen, premium-feeling aluminum construction, a quad-core processor, better-than-average system memory and storage, good connectivity, and a sweet $300 price tag."
The Acer Chromebook 14 gives you just about all the features and quality you need from a basic laptop, plus extra niceties like a metal body and almost 12 hours of battery life.

Two questions...

What is the difference between the Acer Chromebase CA24V-CT and the CA24I-CT?
The HDMI port on these allows for a 2nd screen, correct?

I really don't know much about MediaTek - do you all think these will bring some extra oomph to Chromebooks

I do hope one or more of the manufacturers finds the Pixel C to be an inspirational device...

Thanks to some insightful comments earlier, we have some great thoughts here and would love some additional speculation here!

Thinking about this more...it has a huge advantage over the touchpad in that you don't need eyes on your device to invoke some commands.

we got an email from my daughter's school letting us know that her lunch account number was being changed from a 4 digit code to a 6 digit code.  the email asked us to help her memorize the new code.  i spoke to my daughter about the code but she had no interest in learning it.  so i changed her chromebook managed login to the same 6 digit code.  wouldn't you know, she memorized it right away.

It's not often that I agree with the Verge but this time their top two picks are the Chromebooks I currently own. An 8.5 score is impressive for a $259 (or $179 refurb) device of any kind.
If you’re looking for a cheap computer, the first thing you should do is check out just how much you can get with a Chromebook. Chromebooks are increasingly looking like the perfect laptops for a...

Chromebook Pro / Chrome OS Pixel C?

It wouldn't take much to make this happen, but would it be accepted in the business community?

With the right accessories I believe it would be right at home in the business ecosystem. I toss the idea around at My Google Site.

I would buy a Pixel C given the choice of firmwares to flash and if the Pixel C with Chrome was in the track to get android apps. If this were a Pro, it should get them out of the box almost. I say give us a choice of what flashable firmware we want on the C
