My daily post consist of my thoughts and point of technology I come across. Today I had an experience with a Samsung Chromebook Plus laptop. I purchased during Black Friday Sales. It cost $349.99 the original price was $449.99.
This is a high end Chromebook with a touchscreen. It can download Android Apps via Google Play Store. The Android apps work different. They are designed to work on phones and tablets, so the experience is awkward. It looks high end, but once you start using it if feels cheap. The keyboard feels undersized. The screen is blurs from time to time. I have to change my approach to Chromebooks. I need to expect less. If you stick to just using the browser and not try to do more than that, then you will be fine. I have returned this Chromebook, but I will continue to look for a larger one that I can type with.
I have been going back and forth trying to decide, should I buy a HomePod or buy the new Apple iPad 9.7 that just came out.
After, thinking of the pros and cons, I have decided on the new Apple iPad 9.7. I came to this decision, because I feel I wll get much more use out of an iPad. It is a great way to consume content. Now I am complete in the Apple ecosystem. Apple MacBook Pro ’13Apple TV 4KApple new iPad ’9.7Apple iPhone XApple Watch Series 3 with Cellular
The Apple HomePod would be nice, but I do not listen to music that often. I will rarely use it. Let see what happens down the road.
This my year end review. It was filled bad decisions.MacBook "12 - Space GrayiPad Pro "10.5 - Space GrayiPhone 8 Plus - Space GrayiPhone X - SilveriPhone X - SilverSamsung Chromebook PlusSamsung Chromebook 3Asus Chromebook 302Raspberry Pi 3Yes, I bought all these items, and all I have to show for it, is an iPhone X. I blame myself for being impatient, and getting bored very quickly. This has taught me, I need to stop being impatient, and there is no short cuts to getting the best product with the best performance.I settled for less, and got burned.
