The OP said he had CM on it. I'm guessing CM runs much better than the stock software.I don't see how anyone can keep a nook. I bought one as a gift and when I was setting it up, I knew it was junk. First it is slow as can be and secondly it had a lot of issues with multi profiles. I was setting it up for a child and whenever I would launch youtube on the second profile it would crash. After looking online it was a software issue and nothing could be done to fix it.
Getting both of those for the price you did is a steal. Nicely done.I have an iMac (never again!) and a Mac Mini at home, but for light, portable computer/tablet use, I'm really enjoying this budget setup: a Chromebook Acer C710 and a Nook HD+. Together they were under $270.
Oh, they do. You just have to pay a bit more for it.I've been entertaining the idea of getting a Chromebook as well. I feel like I've been very successful at migrating all of my data to the cloud and slightly modifying my behavior to use web-based apps. I think the biggest realization is that I'm not a power user by any means ( no games, no video/audio editing ) and I can do everything I need to do on quickoffice/google docs.
At this point, I wish they made a higher resolution chromebook.
Thanks. The chromebook is great for my needs. Wakes up instantly (even going from completely off to fully booted only takes a few seconds!)Getting both of those for the price you did is a steal. Nicely done.
SkyDrive has a Word Web App, along with some other Office apps.Only worries I have is that you cant open and edit MS word documents and cant print.
Though I haven't tried this, my guess is yes. You can download ShiftEdit and Neutron Drive on the Chrome web store.On a chromebook, can you do stuff like writing code (HTML) and saving to a sd card or Dropbox?
Cool. You can pick up an Acer C720, a newer/faster model than mine (not to mention 8+ hours of battery life) for about $199. Just look for "Acer - C720 11.6" Chromebook - 2GB Memory - 16GB"Hey OP I was in Best Buy playing around with that exact same chromebook and for $230 i was impressed.
I just opened and edited an MS doc on my Chromebook without an issue. Here's a quick video w/ more info:Only worries I have is that you cant open and edit MS word documents and cant print. If you can, let me know as I would love to downscale from my MBP to a chromebook and pocket a good amount of cash.
I had an iPad 4 which overall was a better tablet than the HD+. However, for my needs (reading, web browsing, streaming music/video), the HD+ is a better fit when factoring in cost.How is the nook HD+?...So just want to know how you are getting on with it.
How many tabs do you typically keep open in Chrome? I'm trying to determine if the basic 2GB model would be OK for my use; I only have 5-10 tabs open at once. (plus google play music and hangouts.)Cool. You can pick up an Acer C720, a newer/faster model than mine (not to mention 8+ hours of battery life) for about $199.
