Why I Failed My Chromebook

“Chromebook is a Web-based computer or laptop that has been around since 2011. I own an Acer chromebook since 2012.”acer-chromebook-c910

As much as I love, its speed, no unnecessary updates, no application download, always feeling brand new. Watching movies, listening to music, using bluetooth. I personally have not been able to adapt to my chromebook for work purposes.

Please do not get me wrong, My Chromebook has serve me well, while my daughter is going thru her third window based laptop, my chromebook is still going strong. I am able to do almost everything with her capabilities. Emails, on-line school courses, banking, shopping, web searches, Netflix and so on. Yet, there has always been something missing, sometimes, just sometimes, I really want to download a program. I really want to use Microsoft Office Suite. Maybe I haven’t given Google Documents a real good try. Honestly, they have evolve, but there are not there yet.

I love Google Drive, I am also a hard-core Android Fanatic. Yet, Google still lacks the flexibility and the smoothness of Microsoft Products. Their Web-store, hasn’t changed much. Not many application (extensions) being created to work with Chrome. That is a shame. I saw great potential. But I need more. I need to be able to work on my blog, books, and my next digital project. I don’t feel, my trusted chrome can do that.

Today, I was writing this piece with one of my daughter’s window based laptop, that I have been able to salvage from her abyss. I look fondly at my chrome, that is right next to me, and I sigh heavily.” This could have been you and me.” I softly say to her as I keep typing away with this mammoth.

In the end, no one is a winner, I will just use the Mammoth as my work horse and my devoted Chrome in my private world. Were I always need guidance from viruses, hackers,and all those other awful things.

I am sorry I failed you, Chromebook…….Hopefully one day I will be forgiven.

Do you own a Chromebook?

How well does it work for you?

I welcome your input.
