Just to quick note to let you know I've been using my new Chromebook for 3 days now and I have very happy with the experience. So much better than any Windows machine.

I'm glad you've found something that works well for you.

It's not for me - I won't be making the switch.

I love my MS Surface.
I love my bespoke-build desktop machine with 2 inbuilt SSDs and 2 hot-swappable SSD caddies.
I think Google is becoming increasingly invasive (though it has a long way to go to catch FB).
For work, I need to use programs that are not available or not proven on a Chromebook.
I often have to work without an Internet connection, but I don't need Chrome to work on the Cloud.

Most computers gone gay when I torture them. Especially when I jam them on Etn tests for 8 to 10 hrs non- stop. Hmm...

Apples are overpriced and invasive... style over substance and they like to be in charge instead of allowing the user to be in charge. I wouldn't give one house room.
As far as I'm concerned they're for people who don't want to know to understand the background of what they're doing (and there's nothing wrong in that if you are one of those people, but I'm not.)

How can Google or FB be invasive? Sounds like you are the type of person who eats at McDonald's every day and complaints about the company's bad behavior and awful products. In other words, if you are unhappy with anything Google does, simply ignore them. Don't use any of their free services.

You are very naive if you think they aren't especially FB. Anyway, I am ignoring them... I'm not buying a Chromebook!

That's a very wise decision, Bev ;-) And do hope Google won't start ignoring me ;-) -- Don't care that much about FB really...
