No, but I am looking forward to one getting here so I can speak intelligently on the topic based on experience and not just research.Another posted made me thing, yes that does happen from time to time. Do you find it is hard to contribute here because you don't have a Chromebook?
I know, when you said something about actually getting your Chromebook I had to double take. I was like, how does that guy know so much if he doesn't have one!I managed 99 posts of insightful assistance* before the man from Amazon arrived.
LOLI know, when you said something about actually getting your Chromebook I had to double take. I was like, how does that guy know so much if he doesn't have one!
I am here to learn about the Chromebook and just jabber on about it since my friends are all sick of hearing about it. So no, it doesn't bother me.
Can't add much to that other than, exactly.LOL
I did read *a lot* about these things before I decided to buy, as my efficiency at work is influenced by the computer I use and I needed to be sure one was right for me. Most of the facts I gleaned from scouring cr48 reviews and other forums during my own research were questions that were getting posted here so I was happy to help out and respond - despite feeling like a bit of a fraud!
Now I've got one, I'm happy to report that it has met all of my expectations, however some of the web apps have let me down a little bit. Imo.im doesn't seem to work for voice or video calls to skype contacts, and I've found thinVNC to be a bit hit and miss. I'm sure both problems are solvable in time with either fixes or alternatives.
Although I'm enthusiastic about my new CB I'm keen to avoid becoming a 'fanboi' who recommends them blindly. If you spend more time watching the web than interacting with it then you need a tablet. If you really can't live without local apps then you need a laptop. I think it is important to make these things clear so that nobody buys a new CB with unrealistic expectations. I think being honest about your concerns and sharing what answers you find are essential to this forum, and they are a way everyone can contribute.
There are quite a few 'would you recommend a chromebook to a student/boss/farmer/assassin/candlestick maker" threads and it is important to ask the right questions before jumping in with a "YEAH THEY ARE AWESOME DO IT" response. I think forums like this will be where these questions get asked, and it is responsible to provide a measured response.
