I think most people ignore the warning, no offense meant trees. I understand the warning but there are some extensions that are a must to me.

Which Chromebook do you think a business would get the most out of? Do you think they should get an Acer or Samsung Chromebook? Or should they wait and get an Asus Chromebook?
