FUTURE OF COMPUTING4/1/2012
I ordered an Acer AC-700 Chromebook a couple of weeks ago because I wanted to try out the new Google Chrome OS, and now I can't live without it. I haven't touched any of my other computers in the past two weeks since I got this notebook. It's very fast; it does everything I need it to; and it has incredible battery life. I don't know why I would switch to another notebook anytime soon.

This is a great product built around the new paradigm of cloud computing in its truest form. I would recommend it for both business and personal use. Everything is on the web. You lose the entire book and all you need is another notebook or just any computer with a Chrome browser to start working again, INSTANTLY. Same goes for future upgrades, or when your dog decides to bury it in your backyard. There are not any software packages to install or maintain, hard drives to de-fragment or virus software subscriptions to update or to bog-down or interfere with applications. It all just works! No more having to bug your family or neighborhood IT Guru and no more trips to Best Buy that cost as much as this single machine on a service invoice from the Geek Squad. If you have a 3g/4g phone that you can tether it to, buy the WiFi only model and save $100. Acer AC700-1099 Chromebook (Wi-Fi) While both the Acer and Samsung are great machines, it's worth the extra $50 for the extra 1/2 inch of display. (And I think the battery is a little stronger in the Samsung too.) Samsung Series 5 Wi-Fi 12.1-Inch Chromebook (Black) It's the last "technology" change you'll ever have to go through! And you'll actually be happy you did.
