Chromebooks are coming

Day 226 - My New Toy
Chromebooks are sneaking into our region.  As far as I am aware, apart from a brief flurry from Dick Smith's, no major retailer is selling them here. Although that is all about to change apparently. (Check out the link below). You can buy them online from various places of course.

However there is a major initiative underway in Otaki to provide Chromebooks for all school pupils in the Otaki area, so are plenty of them in this area.  Check out http://goo.gl/LzU0y7 for some pictures.

Chromebooks are a great device for people who just want to do some email, surf the web, manage photos, and do some basic word processing and spreadsheets.  Well, that actually sounds like most people I know.

Of course there are downsides, especially for people in the PC Support business.  Whoops that could be us! Perhaps we'd better concentrate on out coaching and advice - at least that's still required.
