I’ve finally got my Chromebook, and I couldn’t be happier. The plan was to acquire one after my 60th birthday, but then I didn’t have the money. But 2 months ago I found one in Facebook sales, an Acer Chromebook CB 311 that’s really is a great machine.

I have upgraded mine with and 256 GB memory card that I bought 2 years ago.
I must say that my love for the web has returned after getting this very competent computer, in fact I haven’t had this feeling since I got the MAC Air one, in 2012 And the next computer I’ll buy will also be a Chromebook, but next time it will be one with reversible screen so it can be used as a tablet. This one has a touchscreen but you can’t turn the screen so it can be used as a tablet.
It’s also cool to be able to use your favorite Android apps on it, not all work. You can also run Linux on it, I have installed it, but not started to use it yet. But I will (probably) in a nearby future.
It also coincided with me founding Roam Research
that is a new idea/type of note taking application. It’s a game changer for sure, and I’m right now using it 50% of the time (The rest is of course in my faithful Evernote) But I will probably return more to Roam in later editions of my Newsletter
