Laptops don't last forever!
I know I've had this Acer Aspire 5739G for over 3 years now and it is showing quite a bit of wear and tear. It looks like I might need to invest a new laptop to do all of what I need with it. So I've been doing a little research and found the Acer C7 Chromebook [Affiliate Link]. It has the Chrome OS so it should be interesting to say the least. Some of the Specs of this Chrome Book is:
|Screen Size||11.6 inches|
|Max Screen Resolution||1366 x 768|
|Processor||1.10 GHz Phenom Dual-Core|
|Hard Drive||320 GB HDD 5400 rpm|
Small but powerful!
As you can see this isn't a really powerful notebook. I really don't think I need a powerful notebook to be able to do what I need to online. I've been using the my Acer Tablet more and more to do just what needs to be done. I've not really been using my notebook, well lets face it, it is going to break sooner or later and I am trying to only use it for the blogging and other such stuff like that. Everything that I need to do is being done with my Tablet and I'm have no problems with it. I can watch movies and shows from it when I need to and It is small enough to take just about anywhere. The only problem I may have with it is the ability to use it a notebook. This is where I will need an actual notebook that isn't to big or to bulky to take with me from time to time.
Installing Another OS!
If I get this, I might just have fun and install Kubuntu on it but that is after I check out the Chrome OS and see how it is. I've not order this Chromebook just yet because I am going to wait and see how to buy it. I am however quite interested in the promises it says up to 4 hours of battery life. Will it last 4 hours without a charge that is a good question. I've read one writers experience with at least one version of the Chrome OS. So this makes me wonder if I will have the same problem with the OS as they had with it.
Don't need everything!
I don't really need everything but it would be nice to blog and use it offline, so I might have to install Kubuntu when I and IF I get it. I'm one of those that knows that it isn't the end of the world if you find it not working just perfectly. I will however explore other options and notebooks if I find something that will work under 300$. I'm currently can only spend that much money on a notebook or laptop to be able to blog with. So I am going to look around and see. If you know of any good notebooks that you would recommend leave a comment or contact me and let me know. I'd love to find out which one(s) your using and why!
