So good, and actually surprising that it has a newer but slower processor, and suffers that much because of it.  Slower than the cheap Rockchip processor models?
WOW.

Anyone got the flag "Enable WiFi credential sync" to work?  Apparently does nothing on either of my two Chromebooks.  I have the option to sync Wifi Networks checked in Sync settings.

For those of you who have the 13 inch, 1080p Acer Chromebook, do you scale the display to 1536x864 or adjust font size to large in order to compensate for smaller text and UI than normal on a Chromebook?

I'm getting rid a Samsung 303c Chromebook because I bought a Pixel, everything still works pretty well. There are some surface scratches on the outside, and the screen has a scratch across it that you can't see when it's on. The track pad sometimes sticks when it is clicked. But, it still works really well for taking notes in class, searching the web, etc.
It comes with an Amazon Basics case as well as the charger. I'm asking $100 obo, but I can pay for shipping.
Hangout with me, text me at 4409413384, or email me at devinkime@gmail.com if interested!

I own C303 and still use and like it. My 15 inch Acer is faster has bigger and 1080 screen plus 4GB RAM and 32 GB SSD. Great battery life also. But my C303 is my favorite couch computer and a grab and go Starbucks or McDonalds machine.

Im really excited :) i got a new chromebook yesterday. The acer 15 inch 4g ram and 16g ssd. I love it. Its really quick and no issues at all. The screen is huge, and it doesn't weigh much. The speakers sound really good. The last chromebook i had was a cr-48 and it lasted me about a year and a half, then it just went black. Im glad to be back ;)

Enjoy Music Player combines local and online music on your Chromebook (and Chrome for Windows or Mac).

It seems like Glados (which is a Skylake board) is a convertible Chromebook.

"The internal keyboard and trackpad must be disabled in tablet mode to 
prevent unwanted input."

TEST=Manual on Glados. Boot system with lid open, verify that keyboard is functional and ENABLE_TRACKPAD is high. Swing lid to tablet mode, verify that keyboard is not functional and ENABLE_TRACKPAD is low. BRANCH=None

HP 14 refurb only 174.99
 
HP 14 Chromebook now only $174.99!

$125 off!  The HP 14 Chromebook runs on a Tegra K1 processor, has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of eMMC storage. This is a factory refurbished model and comes in a choice of 3 colors as seen in the image below. The HP 14 normally retails for $300.

HP no longer sells this model on the HP website, so I am guessing we may be up for a refresh soon. If you would like a nice large screen for light surfing, the price is right.

You can see more details over on Ebay.  I am not familiar with the "Deal Frenzy" seller, but it looks like they are an experienced seller with a 98.5% positive feedback rating.

I recently bought the Acer 15 CB5 from Amazon. Then I got an email telling my I get a free year of "unlimited everything cloud storage" from Amazon cloud drive. What with getting it at a daily deal (or whatever) price, I seem to have made out rather well.

Cloud storage deals are popping up all over. Yesterday's 100GB is now 1TB, or even "unlimited"; free storage with new purchases; and so on.

Not that I don't keep local backups on my own external/portable drives....

The limitations of the cloud

The disappearance of Google+ Photo confronts us to the current limitations of cloud.

On forums, blogs and social networks, we often hear about the cloud as the safety limits. Many argue that to maintain its data on Google, Dropbox or Microsoft servers raises privacy concerns. This is true in theory but honestly I've never felt confronted with this kind of problem. My private life doesn't bother these big companies..

For me, the boundaries of the cloud are elsewhere, that is to say in the risk of an regurlarly used application to disappear overnight. I lived this reality in the past with some Google services (eg Google Reader). I've also seen web apps from startups disappear overnight.

This week it is the photo editing application of G+, based on Snapseed, which is missing. This application was unquestionably the most advanced cloud photo editor. It was the only one, to my knowledge, which enabled non-destructive image editing. It became my main photo editing tool. Its replacement, the new Google Image is an antiquated tool for retouching. We're 10 yrs back!. To maintain a minimum quality in photo editing, I will have to return to Lightroom that exists only on Windows and MacOS.

This phenomenon raises the question of the sustainability of the cloud. Imagine a company that decides to migrate to the cloud and ChromeOS. What they will do the day their accounting software disappear overnight? As long as the cloud will not guarantee us access to our applications, it will remain a real obstacle for anyone to migrate there professionally.
