Hey everyone. So, just a quick question here. I'm having an issue with the Google Now cards on my Chrome OS. The only two cards that show up are the travel and weather but none of the news and such that appear with my other devices that are all synced. Any suggestions as to how to correct this issue? Thanks for your time.

Lenovo adds another model
 
Chromebook Product Update!

I was just checking the Lenovo website and noticed you can now get the 11.6" 100S Chromebook with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage. Price is $229. This model is on the list to get access to the Google Play Store eventually. Everyone seems to be adapting newer models for the Play Store. This model would be great for those who don't need touchscreens, backlit keyboards, IPS screens AND the price that comes with those features.

You can check the 100S model over on the Lenovo website:

Acer Chromebook on sale for $150
 
IPS Acer Chromebook 11 only $149.99 this week!

For quite some time Target stores and Target.com have carried just one Chromebook, the Acer Chromebook 11. That model has now been discontinued and stores everywhere are liquidating inventory. Target is now carrying a new version of the Acer 11 instead. This model is also on the list to get the Google Play Store later this year.

Acer has upgraded the Chromebook 11 with a new IPS screen and lowered the retail price 20 bucks to $179.99. Today, Target has the device on sale for even lower at $150. I believe this is still the only Chromebook with an IPS screen under $200.

The new Acer CB3-131 is powered by an Intel processor, has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of eMMC storage. This device would be perfect for light surfing and is very portable at 11.6".

You can check out more specs and details over on Target:

Try the Play Store now for $180
 
Convertible Acer R11 IPS Chromebook for $179.99!

$150 off! The R11 is Acer's answer to the the Asus Flip. This 11.6" Chromebook model retails new at $330. This is a factory refurbished unit. This unit just got the Google Play Store yesterday on the Developer Channel!

Per Acer-

The 360° hinge features dual-torque technology, so the panel is very easy to open, but locks in place when you tap, swipe and pinch on the touchscreen for wobble-free touch control. The panel senses when you place it upside down for “tent mode”, prompting the image and audio channels to flip over automatically.

The R11 is powered by an Intel N3150 quad-core processor, has 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage.

You can check out more specs and details over on the Acer Store on Ebay:

Another new touchscreen model on the way.
 
Bingo, just as I thought!

Lenovo has added a touchscreen Chromebook version to it's upcoming 14" model for schools. This was never announced by Lenovo earlier this year in their press release. I will have more info coming after I make some calls to confirm more specs. Just thought I would throw this out there to whet your appetites.

Be quick
 
Acer Store on Ebay just got stock in on the i5 models

If anyone has been following this model, you know they only get one or two units in at a time and they are gone quick. Retail on the Intel Core i5 Acer 15 (white or black) is $500 new. Pick it up now as a refurb for half price.

The black model on the left is the unit I personally purchased about 3 months ago. If you want great performance and a nice large screen, this is the way to go.

The i5 models both come with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of SSD storage.

Here are direct links to both models:
