This Year, I Fell Back in Love With My Google Pixelbook and Chrome OS

NOTE: This article is not about any of the “normal” topics of this newsletter: genealogy, history, current affairs, DNA, and related topics. However, I believe that many readers of this newsletter have an interest in low-cost computing devices. I know that I share that interest and therefore want to share my discoveries.

I have written a number of times about the advantages of Chromebook and Chromebox computers, the low-cost systems that perform almost all the functions that most computer users want from their systems. I use my Chromebook and Chromebox systems almost daily even though a couple of weeks ago I added a new, high-powered Macintosh to my collection of computers. The Chrome OS systems are so much simpler and easier to use when I have a “quickie” use for a computer.

Writing in the Android Authority web site, Rita El Khoury has written an article about a number of recent additions to the Chromebook/Chromebox systems. I thought I knew those systems well but her article showed me a number of new things that I was not aware of previously.

Comment: During the Christmas season, I have seen dozens of ads for Chromebook systems at lower prices than I have ever seen before (and for a lot less than what I paid for mine!). If you are looking for a system for yourself or for a gift for a computer
