:cool: I've been looking forward to the Google Chrome pc release for months. Everything I've researched about it looks very promising. I've got 4 new laptops and a desktop and 2 Iphones so I don't need another pc right now but I want a Chrome so much I may buy one anyway.

Can you transfer the hard drive info into the chromebook? When my last pc died I had a pc store copy my old hard drive to disks so I could get to my pics and videos and load what I wanted onto my new pc's. How would you transfer your info from your existing pc to the chromebook if it does not have a disk drive?

Unrelated topic... When the pc store transferred my old hard drive via disk I wasn't able to find all of my pics and vids from my old pc. These pics and videos were VERY VERY IMPORTANT to me. Any suggestion on what went wrong? Should I take it back to the pc store?
The mother board had burnt out and a new one with labor was over $800. I didn't replace the mother board because although the Toshiba laptop had all of my important info on it, it was about 5 years old so I decided to buy a new laptop instead. I still have the old Toshiba. Is there a way to replace/repair the mother board at a reasonable price?
Suggestions?

Get the Samsung, it is so much better. The Acer has had production and release problems. I am not going to criticize them because I understand why, but at the same time I have to be realistic on which Google Chromebook is better.

The question isn't "how do I load data from my hard disk to a new chromebook".
The question is "how do I load data from my hard disk to the cloud".

Once you've got the right question, the answer is easy. Plug the disk into a working computer - either directly to a SATA or IDE port on the motherboard or using a USB enclosure, and upload to the cloud service of your choice from there.
