New Chromebook today, these are my dislikes so far

I just received my Chromebook yesterday. I did a lot of researched before buying and understood what I was getting. It's only a day into it and I have an open mind about it as of right now I'm 50/50 on keeping it or not.

These are the things that are an issue for me so far in the short time I have used it.
  • First email I checked on it had a video from a cell phone and I couldn't get it to work. Tried on my Dell laptop and it worked right in the email.
  • Can't seem to upload pictures on eBay when I list an item to sell.
  • For some reason RV and Camping Forum ? RV, Trailer, Camper, Motorhome, Camping and Campground Information loads really slow on the Chromebook. This is a forum I visit a lot so that is a big issue to me.
  • The track pad is something to be desired. The 2 finger scroll is way to slow for my liking. It just doesn't seem very sensitive and I have the setting set as high as it'll go. I'm hoping I can adjust to it but that alone can be a deal breaker.

Is this a Sam or an Acer?

The trackpad is my biggest non-like, but I am getting use to it. The link you have above loads fine for me. Not slow at all. I have not tried ebay, but pics load to Facebook fine for me. The only thing I can think of about the vid is that its an unsupported format maybe?

I think the trackpad would be not an issue for me, since I've been using trackpads on my laptops and netbooks for years now. The unsupported stuff could be bad, though.
