Amazon is now shipping the new Haier Chromebook 11 G2 for less than the price of the formerly released EDU model. Offered in black as well as white but looks like Amazon only carries the white one :-( +Brent Sullivan
Right now you can take 50% off any music album in the Google Play Store.
When you click on the link below it will take you to a page with just a few selections, but you can just navigate to the main page and use it for any album you want. As always, depending on where you are, YMMV.
As an alternative to Chrome Remote Desktop (CRD), you might want to take a look at Chrome RDP. RDP is the native Windows remote protocol and I've generally found it to be much smoother and faster than CRD. It works particularly well in low bandwidth situations. Also since most versions of Windows come with an RDP server already installed, you don't need to install or maintain anything extra on the Windows side. Chrome RDP will cost you $10, but it is well worth it in my opinion if you have to access a Windows desktop on a regular basis. I wrote a little bit more about the difference between CRD and RDP at http://pradlon.com/ if you are intersted (scroll down to "Running a single desktop").
Just a question, I'm in the market for my first CB. Are there any places I can really try one out. Best Buy has 5 different ones, but they all seem like older models. Office Depot only had one. Staples and TigerDirect both closed. I'm kinda at a loss. I'm really interested in the Toshiba CB2 2015 and the Dell 13 but $400 is a lot to drop on something sight unseen
+Michael Gorsen yup, I'm in WM (you close by?). I may stop by Brandsmart. The Flip is nice but it's too similar to what I already have which is an Asus, with the keyboard dock. the Keyboard is just a little too small for me

So I have movies on my chromebook that I usually use vlc to play on Windows because it supports a wide variety of video formats. For Chrome OS I can't find a familiar video player. I have movies on my Chrome OS that I can't watch or it lags when I do, because the video player is terrible. Can anyone recommend a good video player please.
