Chromebook

I've decided that a Chromebook is what I want.

I do most everything (on my computer) online and most of that through Google. I rarely play games or watch DVDs on my laptop and don't own another computer. Most of my photos are stored in my phone or on some social media site. My phone is a Samsung and I have never felt compelled to make the whole Apple jump.

Some time ago I bought a knock-off tablet and thought I would really like it. I liked it okay, but was a little disappointed to find that it was more like having a really large phone than a smaller computer.

Today's post comes to you from my newly acquired Samsung Chromebook.

As with most technology, I imagine that I will never use it to its full potential. I'll use it for its lightweight portability and online access. I doubt that I'll ever have more than one or two games on it and probably won't have many apps, either. I have a separate DVD drive from a previous purchase and will see if it is compatible to watch the occasional magic instruction DVDs.

I am hopeful that I will write more often.

My old laptop has been getting slower and slower and has seen its better days.

Chris uses her phone or Kindle Fire for her online activity. This will be my main tool for connecting to the rest of the world.

This June day is going to warm up quickly in the Ozarks, so I'd better get outside and get my daily walk/run in before it gets too hot. I can always explore the new Chromebook later in the day when it's too hot to be outside.

Be well,
John <><

I haven't strayed from my desktop yet.

I haven't had a desktop in years. I've been through a couple of laptops but I'm guessing it's been at least a decade since I've owned a desktop.
