I want one for me., 2 Dec. 2012
I bought this for my parents as their old computer finally broke, but before i took the decision there was the options of:
1: buy a small laptop with windows 7 (and install antivirus, firewalls, and the rest of software)
2: buy a small laptop with windows 8 and learn it so i can teach it to my parents and then install all the software deemed necessary to protect it.
3: buy a chromebook and set up a new email account for them.
4: a mac (too expensive, and there's still stuff to set up and worry about viruses and infamous spinning beachball of death)
Google's vision with the chromebook is something that i was more than happy to accept. My parents don't do anything else besides browsing the net and watch videos, and type he occasional word document
The chromebook finally came to my address and has been with me for about two weeks and I don't want to part ways, I feel like it knows me too much and I'll miss it, this is the perfect computer for a zero fuss life that my parents wanted, It just works.
I will definitely buy another one for myself in the near future.
