+Tyler Miller I understand. Hopefully there are few people who go in and just pick one up without understanding what it is they are purchasing. I know full well how many users out there do not do any homework on a computer and just buy something without knowing anything about it. I actually ran into a person that purchased a Samsung CB 2 and his comments to me were that he didn't like that he couldn't use MS Office on it. I had to explain that he can using the online version although it is a bit more limited that the full versions on Windows OS. Cheers!

Hp 14 CB Tmobile free 200mb for life. I read some where that it's non transferable. I upgraded the SSD in my CB so I had to set Chrome OS back up again. When I did it asked me for my Tmobile account info. But I bought my Hp 14 used off of eBay so I didn't originally set up the Tmobile account. I contacted the seller but he had no clue what to do. He buys laptops and reburishs them for resale. Tmobile says my device isn't eligible for the 200mb free. Anyone else have a similar experience with their Hp14?

+Mary Kellar What do you see when you go to the Goodies page? Do you even see the t-M offer?
Even if you don't get free data, the CB has the whatsis-card-thing to be able to buy more. Have you tried going to t-M's page to see if it "sees" your device & offers to set up an account and sell you data? They have short-term passes, you wouldn't have to have a contract. AFAIK anyway.

I wasn't pleased with my HP Chromebook 11's battery life so I taped a 18000 mAh zerolemon battery to the back of it.

I'm running my Hp Chromebook on the Developer channel but my Galaxy S5 still doesn't reconize my phone when I plug it in. I thought Chrome had MTP built in now?

+Bill McLaughlin Same here, MTP enabled, phone beeps to indicate connection, battery changes to indicate power coming through the USB cable. Note 4 doesn't appear in Files app.

At the same time, my tablet is having a similar issue. However, that IS connecting and showing up in the Files app. For about half a second then it disconnects and reconnects in an endless loop. Almost as if the MTP connection is continually resetting itself upon connection to the device.

I finally got Lollipop update on my XPeria Z3.
So far, so good, except I wanted to use the smartlock feature with my chromebook. For some reasons, the bluetooth pairing initiates correctly, then loses the connection, and cannot reconnect anymore. My wife has a Nexus 5, also with Lollipop, and she has no issue on the same chromebook (HP 14").
Already tried restart chromebook and Xperia Z3 but even though it sees the association between devices, it still cannot connect.
The connection from my phone to my Moto 360 works fine, so I guess it might be some compatibility issues between chromeos and xperia Z3 bluetooth on lollipop, but I could not find valuable info so far on Internet? 
Anyone else would have experienced similar issues?
Thanks

Same here, using Moto 360. Trying to use my Note to unlock my Chromebook (Asus C300 on beta) is no where near as reliable. It seems to setup just fine but actually getting the CB to detect the phone on the lock screen only seems to work reliably on boot up as opposed to around a 1 in 10 chance in wake up.

FWIW, my Note is on Lollipop too.

A couple of weeks ago I bought a HP Chromebook 14-q039wm off of ebay for $185 for college.  I am loving my chromebook! Yesterday I sucessfuly upgraded the SSD from 16gb to 128 gb using a guide I found online.

You do basically have to take the whole thing apart Curtis.  But it was relatively easy to do compared to other laptops Ive had to take apart.  Prying it opening and disconnecting the cables was easy as was getting to the SSD and replacing it.  Hp has packaged the Hp 14 well and the guide to taking it apart was easy to follow.  I prefer pictures with step by step instructions versus a video.

Please help. My HP Chromebook keeps on crashing ("Chrome OS is missing or damaged") even after recurring recoveries from USB. Buy a new?

Hay Tyler, I have the same Chromebook w/o/ touch screen. You mentioned using Skype. There is not an app for this on Web Store. Where can I find the app and how do I install it.

To any original HP11 owners, has the performance improved as ChromeOS has developed? Very tempted to get the original HP11 as it's so cheap and looks great. I'll only use it for watching videos, maybe the odd google doc.

UK folk... just in case you missed it http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/laptops-netbooks/laptops/chromebooks/hp-chromebox-turquoise-10030260-pdt.html this is an incredible price! £99 for a 4gb Chromebox is ridiculous.

I'm trying to do a file transfer using usb. I read that MTP is now supported on Chrome OS but whenever I plug my Galaxy S5 into my usb port nothing happens. I finally had to take my SD card out of my phone, pop it into a adapter and transfer my files that way. I also tried Airdroid. I kept getting errors. Is there a easier way to file transfer? What happened to Chrome OS supporting this?
