If I want to watch an online movie or internet tv on a larger screen, can I connect Chromebook to it? If so, how? my husband is a movie addict when he's relaxing and that's all he does online.

Do you mean watching the movie from a Chromebook but on a larger external screen? I would assume this is possible but I would prefer watching it on my laptop.

The Samsung Chromebook comes with an adapter from the Display Port on the Samsung to a VGA connector which you could connect to a larger monitor or many newer TVs.

Yep, in fact there are some Chromebook owners on the forum who are already connecting their Chromebooks to their televisions. They are lurking around here someone, but I am sure they will tell you how they do it when they see this.

Update - today I plugged mine into a rather lovely Acer projector, and was flabbergasted to see it project at 1600*1200 resolution. It seems the CB will provide an output at the maximum resolution supported by whatever you connect to it. Dual screen output doesn't work though - the CB's screen goes blank when you connect the external display. I guess this is reasonable with the difference in resolutions.

Russ, that is some amazing resolution. I was sure someone would soon discover something like that. Fortunately modern TVs are designed in such a way that they can be used with other devices.

Yes I tested this with my CR-48 at work (1920x1080) screen with VGA and it worked awesome..but you can only have on up and running at once...no dual screening.
