@chriswiegman saw on birdsite that you got a new what did you get?

@timnolte went with a Samsung Chromebook 3. Nice and cheap and perfect for my use case.

@chriswiegman I've been eyeing either the Acer Chromebook Spin 13 or the Lenovo Yoga C630 Chromebook. I need something with 64-128GB of storage.

@timnolte That makes sense. The Lenovo was something I considered too but it's just too much for my needs right now. This one is 32GB, I think, with an expansion slot. Considering everything I have is in the cloud anyway I probably won't need to add in that area.

@timnolte If you're doing anything more than websites I would recommend a real Intel Core processor though. If anything is lacking on this machine it's the Celeron CPU it has.

@chriswiegman yeah, that's why I'm thinking one with an it, like the Acer or Lenovo.

@chriswiegman grr, just realized that autocorrect hit again that was supposed to say i5.

@chriswiegman well, with a sale going on, and the need for another "tablet" in the house, I pulled the trigger on a new Acer Chromebook Spin 13 (i5/8GB/128GB). Should be here tomorrow. Going to be interesting to see how it fairs as my all-in-one device.
