New to the community. Can someone help with the storage space issue on Chromebooks? I have the HP, and during the 5-6 months I've owned it, I've noticed the storage space has decreased by almost 2GB, and I don't seem to get any back when I clear the downloaded files. Anyone know how to get some back? Clearing cookies, etc. didn't help either.

If your not storing anything in local then just let it shrink,it will eventually make space for itself,also you could powerwash your machine as well for max space.

HP Chromebox plus wireless keyboard and mouse Bundle now offered for only $199.
 
HP has added a Chromebox Bundle to Lineup

HP now lists a HP Chromebox bundle that includes a wireless keyboard and mouse  What I personally find most surprising is that it is only $20 more than the Chromebox as a standalone unit.  I checked and the keyboard is indeed a genuine Chrome OS keyboard.  Out the door for $199, not bad HP.  Let's see how Asus responds.  You can see this package and the two retailers selling it as well as full specs and other New Chromebooks here:

Hi,

So I have used John Lewis' coreroot build for the HP Pavilion 14 chromebook to install Ubuntu, it work and have used Ubuntu for some time but I think I want to sell the device so trying to get it back to stock ChromeOS. Stupidly I didn't back up the stock firmware before I did this. 

Could someone point me in the right direction to get it? Or an alternative to fix this mess?

Thanks

+Gary Cooper you have two options:

1) download Google's recovery image for your device, mount it, extract the firmware, etc (the Coreboot community has some links for this I think), or
2) find someone with the same model and ask them to extract the recovery firmware

With either option, you'll likely need to manually set the device's hardware ID back to something valid in order for ChromeOS to auto-update

Hi,

I just received my HP 14" CB from woot - thanks to a deal alert by +Brent Sullivan on 22nd :-) ... All is testing good except Hangouts:

1) When I initiate a HO from the CB I see the CB video but as soon as the called party connects my CB video goes to thumbnail and if I click on either the Video On/Off or Audio On/Off the HO terminates with an error ??

2) When I receive a HO on the CB I see the video for a brief moment and then it goes to the thumbnail. Clicking on the Video/Audio buttons in HO window does not cause termination with an error.

=== ===

In either case the audio is not working (microphone) .. the speakers were working because I could hear the ringing on the CB.

I did check the "Settings" from the HO window but no help there - camera is greyed out with HP TruVision HD set and the only option  ... and the audio mic and speakers had Default or Automatic options and set as Default.

The "Play Test Sound" produced nothing/no sound ... so ???

Note : I did play a video on the CB (from inside G+) and the video playback and audio were working fine ... 'course this video is from however it was recorded but it confirmed that the speakers seem to be working OK?

The problem seems to be specific to HOs ?

Any help will be deeply appreciated.

PS : Also, the HO video (i.e., the CB camera) is very washed out and grainy, very poor quality - and this is HPs HD camera??

The unbelievable Woot deal is back.  *The 32GB SSD HP 14* that sells new at Costco for $379, is being offered re-furbished for $219.  That's a crazy deal.   So far everyone that got on this deal here the last time it was offered said it was just like new when they received it.  Just ask +Ken Yeh Below is a "direct" link to product.  It looks like there is only about 10 hours left before the offer is up.  Be quick !  Thanks to +Matt Elias for the heads up.  He is one of the happy customers who got in on this deal the last time it was offered.

Overstock started on that premise, but they've long since dropped that and went "mainstream" with their pricing.  Some people swear by them, but whenever I look for something on there I never find anything that is in an agreeable price range.  I always go back to Amazon or Ebay.

HP recently released a Chromebox which has proved popular due to it's low price point. At only $179 it's definitely a great buy. However it never came with a keyboard or a mouse. It sold with only the machine itself. However starting today, you'll be able to spend an extra $20 to get a wireless mouse and keyboard bundled with the Chromebox. Of course the bundled keyboard does have a standard Chrome OS layout. This bundle is priced at ...

Isn't that the unit that claims to be fanless but has a noisy fan?

This is a great deal.  I just received my refurb HP Chromebook 14 w/4GB RAM 16GB SSD from Woot today(paid $199).  I might have to order a second one now with the 32GB SSD only costing an extra $20.

Don't shoot the messenger !  :)  I only brings 'em to you as I find them.
The outgoing HP 11 is now off of the Fire Sale from the other day, and it's replacement model has now arrived and "in stock" at Amazon and other fine retailers.  The Model will officially be the HP 11-2010nr, for reference purposes.  As seen below you would swear it was the white HP 14 at first glance.  Warning: this model is not the same "under the hood", as it's 14" counterpart.  Keep this in mind when considering this model as a possible purchase option.  HP, MacMall, and Amazon all have it ready to ship and are listed here:  http://bit.ly/NewChromebooks  If you find any other retailers, please comment below with link and I will add to chart.  Note  Third party resellers are still selling the outgoing model on Amazon should you want that model.

+Gabriel Walsh Take a look at this Amazon link (which I assume is what everyone is looking at).

http://www.amazon.com/HP-11-2010nr-11-6-Inch-Chromebook-White/dp/B00KB3VCQM/ref=sr_1_5

At the top in the short description, it says "Samsung A4" -- not sure what that even means. Then, if you scroll down to the comparison chart against the 3 other notebooks, for CPU it says "Apple A4" -- blatantly wrong.

In the super long, badly written Product Description at the bottom, it finally says "Samsung Exynos 5250".

I really enjoyed the HP CB 11.  I tried the Samsung and Acer before but ended up returning them because I could not stand the screen.

Hi guys. I'm thinking about buying a Chromebook, have been looking at the HP Chromebook 11, but will hold out until Google I/O tomorrow.

What I wanted to ask was...... Just like the N& & N10 can you have different user account on it, or do you have to sign in and out for different ppl to use it???

Thanks in advance

There's got to be something at I/O. 2014 has been a desert so far.

+Brent Sullivan +spencer dawson The Asus chromebox can be upgraded to at least 8gb ram. I have read that some people have done 16gb, but id think thats overkill.
