got reminded about this we fellow today, and had to go deepdive the googles to find a photo... wow does seeing this make me kindy misty nostalgic for the old days. ... yeah... wow where has the time gone?
Well it had to happen eventually. After six years, I've finally replaced my Chromebook.
Goodbye Baby Blue, you were a fantastic purchase, and served me incredibly well for so long - but they stopped putting out updates/security installs for you and you drag when trying to do more than browse web pages.
Hello, Lil' Blue. (I promise it looks more blue in person.)
Yep, this thing is great, I'm probably going to go ahead and sell my tablet as well, since this does everything it did, but better. Just a straight improvement to two separate devices, which is great.
Hilarious anecdote, verifiable by the Doc, we actually had to get two of these today, since the first one had a massively weird factory error out of the box. It comes with a magnetic cover/keyboard - and the back cover of the first unit we bought had not been assembled right, it looks like when the fabric exterior is applied they peel off a wax paper overlay, and then seal it to the stand, and the wax paper never got removed, so the fabric peeled off like a sticker with minimal force, started falling off instantly out of the box.
I can safely say I have never seen a factory defect like that.
Wish I could have helped more, Dee. If it's any consolation, since I've been researching computers/laptops/chromebooks for all this, the current pricing for something decent enough to run Skyrim shouldn't be too pricey. (Though they keep releasing all this new improved graphical versions that I haven't kept up with, so for all I know I'm spouting complete nonsense.
