  5. 1. On the second Tuesday of each month, turn off your Chromebook and for an hour, fume about not being able to do any work.
    3. Every 3 years, complain abut how slow your Chromebook has become. Take a day off to look at new Chromebooks. Go home and do noting for another day. Then randomly delete files for a few hours and then go back to work.

  10. It's now 2017 and i've been using chromebooks for the past 4 years, 1st CB was Samsung XE303C12 purchased for $249.00 and got stolen, the locate my chromebook from Samsung and Chrome store did not work most likely because CB's are so easy to hard reset by using the reset button on bottom. my 2nd CB for the past year is a HiSense C11 that i purchased from walmart which was a floor model for only $79.00, and actually performs better then the Samsung. I use my Chromebook everyday but there are somethings that are better on a normal PC/Laptop. I give Chromebooks a 4.5 out of 5 rating.

  17. Do you want to make having a Chromebook feel more like a WIndows PC? It's easy!!

    Start by cursing silently once every day for a minute. Turn it off one hour every Tuesday. Put aside $40/year for a good AV software subscription. and another $150 for the new machine and software that you assume you will need in 3 years.

    After 3 years, schedule a half day to shop and have someone to move your files to another Chromebook, and a couple of wasted days rediscovering how to use it.

    Then take that money and time and spend it on a vacation because your Chromebook works better than when it was new.
