I'm older than dirt and I am fully aware of what the Chromebooks can and cannot do. For me it was the perfect fit for a kitchen laptop for online radio, spotify, youtube and recipe browsing. $199 and easy enough for my kids to use.
I've not looked at how this is passed down, but out of my three kids one is a lefty, and yes I am pretty sure they are all mine.
Thanks, I only meant to submit this in my journal but screwed up the submission. Anyway, on NewEgg I mean the DIY PC Combos http://www.newegg.com/Store/MasterComboStore.aspx?StoreID=7&name=DIY-PC-Combos and on TigerDirect the Barebones kits http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_tlc.asp?CatId=31&name=Barebone-Kits&cm_sp=Masthead-_-Computer%20Parts-_-Spot%2002 It looks as if the prices are about half of what the same would cost all assembled RAM included (in the $250-$300 range for the ones above).
Mantorp writes "My ancient (6 or 7 yr old) PC finally died and I think it's the powersupply or motherboard or whatever, it just shuts down as soon as push the powerbutton. Anyway, it's an old single core machine and I think I deserve a new slightly faster machine. I don't want to spend more than $2-300 and it seems I can get significantly more bang for the buck by getting a kit rather than a ready made PC. But, how hard is it to assemble one of these from TigerDirect or NewEgg? My level of expertise is limited to having popped in more ram, installed a video card with a TV tuner, and replaced failed hard drives. If it's much much harder than that I'll probably screw it up."
"Rechargeable batter" - sounds delicious. "Sets of a chain reaction" - is it one or a set?
But I try not to drink before noon on Tuesdays

takes some will power to give up something you enjoy, but you know was bad for you in the long run. I hope I will be strong enough if I have to make a similar decision.
With all the recent hacktivism in the news, Anonymous has decided to take on a new and powerful enemy: snow. On Sunday the group announced that it will "do everything in its power to shut snow down by attacking the Weather Channel and North Face websites, boycotting outerwear, and voting for the sun as Time’s 2010 Person Of The Year." I'm sure there are a lot of people in Minneapolis right now that would wish them luck.
Charging Assange with a bogus crime doesn't do anything except get Wikileaks more press. Unless you're implying that there might be a few hard hitting "enforcers" greeting Assange in jail.
I came here expecting a beer story brewing.
I think my test is enough to prove how ridiculous it is, but if he somehow succeeds then by all means let's go the full monty on the next try
:) PETA might object though.
especially hard to deal with when you're 600 years old
