I am learning to use a Google Chromebook I acquired from a conference recently. I even have my 6 year old son using it and he loves using it. He jumped right on and was using the web and apps I downloaded for him. The speed of boot up and browsing was great. The only disadvantage right now is figuring out the local storage options and many apps are simply links to the web site version such as Dropbox. The battery life is great and I plan to get a large SD card to use for local storage so I don’t have USB drives hanging off of the Chromebook. Stay tuned for more!
