Any other big Chrome OS fans here?
I went from zero Chrome OS devices to 3, between Jan and May of this year.
I kept hearing Leo talk about Chromebooks. When I discovered I would not have to buy and run antivirus software, I started to listen.
On my Windows PC, I was running Norton, Malwarebytes, and 4 other similar programs manually. About 2x a year, no matter how careful I am, I’d still pick up something on 1 of the programs. Rather annoying.
After the last time of this, I broke down and bought a Asus Chromebox 3. I really got hooked on the operating system. And after a few weeks, I found ways to do just about everything I did on my Windows PC. Other than hooking up my Ipod to my Windows laptop, I can do everything on my Chromebox.
I found a cool Android checkbook register app called Volkron Checkbook. I use Pixlr Editor as a clone of Photoshop. There are several Android streaming apps that work well. And, the online version of MS Word works great.
I later bought the 14" Dell Two-In-One chromebook. Then, when I discovered the HP Chromebook 2 - I bought that too. The HP Chromebook X2 works like a Microsoft Surface - fully detachable keyboard. In fact, I use it as a tablet, and don’t ever attach the keyboard.
I wanted to replace my Samsung S2 tablet. I was looking at the Samsung S4, but then I discovered the HP. I like that Chrome on the HP Chromebook X2 is the full desktop version, whereas you have to use the android version of Chrome on the S4. Plus, the Chromebook X2 was cheaper than the S4 (I got a great sale at BestBuy for $399 - $200 off).
It’s so nice to be able to bring around a full computer that is the size of an Ipad. I was sorry to see that Best Buy discontinued that model recently.
What Chrome devices do you guys have here?
