The Seventh Day of Techness
Here at Yahoo Tech, we’ve made a lot of noise about Chromebook laptops. These are sweet, lightweight, fast, elegant-looking laptops that don’t run Windows or Mac OS X. Instead, they run Google’s Chrome operating system, so they’re designed for doing things online: watching videos, surfing the Web, doing email, and working with Google Drive docs (spreadsheets, word processors, presentations, and so on).
True, they don’t do as much as a $1,000 superthin Mac or Windows laptop. But this Acer C720 (16 GB, 11.6-inch screen) costs $180 — a fantastic price for a second computer, a kitchen computer, a kids’ computer.
