Today we’ll talk about why I ditched my MacBook Pro for a Chromebook and Chromebox. I’ll give you some of my first insights into the process, and how I got some important applications to work on this inexpensive machine combination.
Here’s what I bought to make it all work:
Acer C720-3404 11.6-Inch Chromebook (Intel Core i3, 4 GB) Granite Gray
ASUS CHROMEBOX-M075U Desktop Bundle with Wireless Keyboard and Mouse
Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL11 SODIMM 204-Pin 1.35V/1.5V Notebook Memory Modules CT2CP51264BF160B
Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable External Hard Drive with Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 (Black) STDR2000100
