Acer Chromebook 15 Unboxing & Hands On

December 12, 2017

I ordered an Acer Chromebox 15 for Christmas and prior to ordering I did some research and watched the following video. I have always been a Windows user; however, as we continue to tread down that path of computer technology, I am finding that most of what I do on the computer these days is strictly internet based. I have found that nearly all people that I know who use a computer at home are using it to strictly browse the web and really for nothing else. If you fall into that category, then what you may not know is that you can save a lot of money and tech headaches by going with a Chromebook.

By definition, a Chromebook is a laptop that runs Google’s Chrome operating system and Chrome Web browser. Providing a total Web-based operating environment, all applications are downloaded from the Web, and although an Internet connection is mandatory, some apps may run offline as well“.

If interested in exploring a Chromebook, [ CLICK HERE ] to see the various Chromebook options at Amazon. If you get really serious, go to a local Walmart or Best Buy and play around with one. Very inexpensive and simple to use (and maintain) compared to the typical Windows based computer.
