CES and buying a Chromebook

Apparently CES, the big electronics show is happening today.  This means there are announcements all day about new great laptops.  I can’t buy one now.  I need to wait until they ship in February.

In the meantime, I need to get something to replace the broken Samsung Series 9 that I bought in June 2011. (Which we loved for a long time)

I decided to try out a Chromebook.  Specifically, I chose the Toshiba CB35-B3340 13.3-Inch Chromebook 2. It won’t run Windows software like Word or Excel, but should run Google apps fine and possibly run Microsoft cloud apps as well.  We shall see.

The price is way lower than a laptop, so I am not expecting it to last 4 years like the previous one.  However, if she hates it, I could always use it as a guest machine or something for the kids during trips.

Buying hardware like this can be nerve-racking. So many choices.

Nerve-wracking or Nerve-Racking? Decent explanation here.
