It has been a long, long time since my netbook days. Back in the last year of secondary school, my laptop with its 10 inch display barely fitted under the school desk, without teachers noticing anything… while I was editing and creating content without a WLAN connection to upload it to the Internet later after school finished. Since then, a decade has passed and the screens of my devices have also become bigger and bigger. But, does it always have to be bigger and bigger? I am testing this now, and am going back to the “11-inch laptop life”. Also, after Windows and macOS (the latter is really not bad), for the first time, I’m now testing Chrome OS, Google’s own operating system for laptops. iPads are really not unuseful, I really love my iPad Mini for its speed and the countless possibilities (large memory, slot for a sim card, …), but even a wireless keyboard connected to the iPad just doesn’t replace a classic laptop to fold open.
So, hello Chromebook, I’m going back to the mobile small screen netbook/laptop life. In the Chromebook category, you can read and learn everything else, and hopefully useful, about Chromebook and mobile working from your netbook. If you have any questions, please use the anonymous blog post suggestion form to submit questions or uncertainties. First of all, all this is in no partnership or advertising, neither for Google nor for the manufacturer of the device, the Laptop is bought by myself (Prime Day, fortunately!) and therefore the posts themselves are not marked as “advertisement”. At the end of some articles, advertising links to Amazon may be included, but these advertising areas are, as always, specially marked so that they stand out from the editorial part.
