WeVideo - for video editing on Chromebooks
Our high school recently purchased a 50-license subscription to WeVideo for Education at a cost of $149 for six months. We are a small school, so the 50 licenses are adequate for our communications...

Looks impressive having not run Linux for about 5 years, may give it a go if my 2gb flip will support dual boot using something like Crouton, just need to find the time.

My Chromebook C710 fell on the floor the other day, now it is dead. SInce the power jack is now loose, I suspect that got broken in the fall. Is it worth getting it fixed? If so, any suggestions for the best, cheapest way to go about getting that done? Thanks in advance.

Another new Chromebook!
 
All-New Samsung Chromebook 3 now available!

Samsung quietly announced a new refreshed 11.6" Chromebook at CES last month. Well, we now have our first retailer that has the product in stock. Adorama Camera is selling the new Chromebook 3 for $199.99.

According to Samsung:

The Chromebook 3 was built for mobile use, with features that make it perfect for carrying between rooms, meetings or classes. It weighs just over 2.5 pounds, is comfortable to hold and was designed for improved grip, reducing worry when juggling books, bags or other items along with the Chromebook. A reinforced metal body adds durability against drops and spills, adding peace of mind while on-the-go. For ultimate productivity, the ergonomic keyboard creates a better typing experience, with UL certified curved keycaps, while the display’s 180-degree hinge makes sharing content effortless.

The Chromebook 3 is powered by the new Intel Celeron N3050 Braswell processor, has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of eMMC storage.

Adorama doesn't have many details on specs at their website, so you can look at the Adorama link to purchase and the official Press Release here for more details on the device. I will be sure to add more retailers as they come on board.

Free Google Drive storage
 
Want a little extra Google Drive space?

Last year at this time Google offered us all an extra 2GB of Google Drive storage just for running a quick Security Checkup on your Google Account.

Well, Google is running the offer again this year. You can get another 2GB of free Drive space just for running the checkup. The Drive storage is good for the life of your account, unlike our 100GB Chromebook offer. 

You can access the checkup here, it took me about 60 seconds from start to finish.

Go check it out!

Acer Store now has these in stock
 
Acer 11 IPS Chromebook now available at Acer for $179.99!

The Acer Chromebook CB3-131 is the first Chromebook with an IPS screen for under $200. This is a brand new, just released device. It runs on your standard Intel Bay Trail processor and has 2GB RAM and 16 GB of eMMC storage.

Amazon was the first retailer to sell this all new model, but they have temporarily sold out it seems. Well, unless you consider the scalpers selling them there (I don't). So I did some digging and it looks like you can now order them directly from the manufacturer. 

You can check out the full specs and details at the Acer site:

Dell 11.6" Chromebook for only $109.99!

$170 off! This is the original Dell 11.6" Chromebook powered by the fast Intel Haswell processor. It has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of SSD storage. The Dell 11 originally sold new for $280. This is a manufacturer refurbished unit. I remember a lot of people commenting that this machine had a sturdier build than the comparable Acer C720 back when they both came out. The Dell 11 mostly sold to the EDU sector.
