    Default Nexus 10 or ChromeBook 2?

    I've had a Nexus 10 for a while now and I love it for the most part. However, I have been thinking of buying the new ChromeBook 2 because it seems like it's just the laptop version of everything I do on the Nexus. Personally, I just use the Nexus at home so the WiFi issue wouldn't be a problem. What do you guys think I'd lose if I made the switch?

    That is a tough choice. I have the Acer C720 Chromebook and it is one sweet machine.

    I'm thinking about getting that. So you think the screen is crisp?

    Very nice. Brighter than my HP laptop. The 720 has a Haswell chip in it, and the Haswells are very good processors right now.

    Read some reviews of chromebook 2. One I read says exynos CPU lags and stutters if you do more than one thing.

    I really think this is apples and oranges.

    I like my Nexus 10 but there are things my laptop just does better. Mostly anything that needs massive CPU power or needs keyboard and mouse for better input.

    I heard that too and I watched a video of that. I might have to go with one of the new Asus versions or the Acer.

    I bought the 720p just a month or so ago. I like it. It is the cheaper 2gb memory one but I can't complain so far. I mainly just check email, listen to google play, and read on it. The keys are a little hard to get used to would be my biggest gripe so far.
