I have played with demo Chromebooks in stores.
After a couple times using them as Guest and not seeing all that was
available on the Chromebook I created an account with a FAKE name and
a Gmail account I never would need again and didn't see anything that
excited me, so I forgot about wanting one.

What I've read so far looks like the Chromebook seems to be a "Cloud"
computer that NEEDS a internet connection to a Server where MY Files
are stored.

The files I would create on it wouldn't be kept locally, so I'm
UNenthused about trying/buying a Chromebook now.

If I want to share a File with somebody else, I can do that.
If the File is too large to attach to a Email I can make a CD and
send it by mail.

I'm not that cheap - even though my Family tree goes back to a Lady
from Scotland who married a Irishman here in the United States Of

Thanks to You and All the Others Who posted Replies to Me about the
