Re: Did something interesting today
Comparing it to my iPad Air and Samsung Chromebook that I bought last year, I can say that I like. The Samsung Chromebook is slower and doesn't have the battery life of the Acer. The big thing that bugged me about the Samsung was video playback was horrible on flash sites. The Acer Chromebook doesn't have that issue. I like the matte finish on the Acer as well. No fingerprints. The screens are about the same. The keyboard feels better on the Samsung, but I don't have a problem with the keyboard on the Chromebook. I wish they were back lit though, but for the price, I can't complain. Now comparing it to my iPad Air or Mini Retina; I would say that the Chromebook still fairs well. It has a full browser experience which is something that is lacking with the iPad. Chrome is much faster than Safari. Of course the screen is larger, but doesn't have the resolution of the iPad. But that hasn't really been an issue thus far. I really like the trackpad. Very responsive and the gestures are helpful. The reason why I wanted to try the Chromebook was that I was using my iPad more like a laptop replacement. I really didn't play games on it. I never used the camera. I had attached a bluetooth keyboard on it and was using it mainly for productivity things, watching movies, reading books, forums, social networking, and music. Well, I can do all of those things on the Chromebook. And, if you really want to, you can play some games on it as well. It has only been a day. But so far I really like the Chromebook. And it was only $200. I can't wait to get the Moto G in the mail tomorrow. If I like it, and decide to go back to Android full-time again, next month's upgrade is going to be interesting.
