It’s been a while and then some but I’ve bought my first laptop in some years.
I opted for the Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-111
I’ve been exclusively utilizing my iPad 2 for my computing needs mostly as a consuming media device.
I have two laptops (one over 5 years old and the other at over 2 years old) weighing in at over 5lbs in weight and not at all suitable for carrying–lugging around.
I had my year with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
That demonstrated to me that most but not everything can be done without aid of a laptop with some concessions.
Coldfustion convinced me of that:
Then I spent my time solely using an iPhone 5s.
At which point I began using an iPad 2 for the majority of my computing usage.
But I’m nostalgic and desire a physical keyboard. The form factor of a laptop is heavy on my mind.
I thought I’d go the Macbook Air route (used however) because I’d be carrying it around.
Along with a low (very low) entry price. It was worth delving into a Chromebook.
My only complaint thus far is the lack of a Caps Lock button and the search button in its place. However with some usage I should stop my caps lock habit.
I’ll see how it goes.
