  19. 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.
