In the beginning I had an IBM PC clone. No hard drive, could not afford it. Now I have a chromebook and don't need one. Am I dating myself?

My first PC clone was a Tandy 1000HD; 640k, 10mb HD. I had to explain to the salesman at Radio Shack why I needed so much memory, and show him how to install it.

I just unpacked my Samsung Series 5. This thing is sexy. That is really the only way that I can describe it. Took a second to figure out how to sync it with my google account, you have to turn on the sync in your home chrome browser. Once I did that everything instantly showed up on my browser. I really enjoy in the track bad and didn't have a problem getting used to the techniques that it requires. Honestly I prefer it to most other track pads that I have used. I do agree that since I already used Chrome browser that made the transition that much better, but even if you are not familiar it won't take long to get adjusted. LOVE IT!

I received my Samsung Chromebook (Wi-Fi, white) from Amazon yesterday. So far it works great.

One day with Chromebook!
 
I must say that I love the machine. It is as fast as a chrome browser. It loads fast. It does everything I need. I spent the past two weeks trying to notice what I do not do online. I already do most everything online. The exceptions are uploading pics from a camera and uploading music to Amazon MP3, both things might be able to be done, I have not tried yet.

The one issue I have had is getting to used to the smaller screen, large track pad, multi-touch on track pad, and the tricks of the OS, like using the file manager. All of these are comparisons to my Dell Laptop, which has a 15 inch screen, small track pad, terrible track pad, and it is Windows 7. I will get used to these things quick I think.

OH BOY! It just got here. Amazon shipped it yesterday and I got it today!!!! Didn't pay for extra fast shipping or anything. It is updating now.......
