Chromebook 13

Click on the Dell Chromebook link above to read a little bit about my upcoming chromebook.  I've had three chromebooks in the past and have sold them to, I hope, satisfied customers.  I miss them (the computers as well as the customers).  So, after much research I've picked the Dell Chromebook 13 as my main laptop device.  Follow this blog and we'll discuss how it goes.  Wish me luck, and if you're in the market for a new pc, ask me about chromebooks.  Really, the best way to go for most computer users in the Park.

GCRV Computer Users Group

I've decided to take my name off the board as the coordinator of the Park's Computer Users Group.  It's time for some new blood, so converse among yourselves and find a new "leader".

I want to devote a lot of my computer time to spreading the word about Chromebooks.  And, their future with Android.  In that regard, I hope to have several discussion/training sessions covering this technology.  MAYBE, we can create a Chromebook User Group!!  CUG, reborn!  Any Chromebook users out there?  Let me know at theoldcomputergeek@gmail.com.
