    For anyone planning on taking the plunge, I just came across three books on Amazon on the subject of ChromeBooks and the Chrome OS. All three have 4.5 stars! If you need some help in filling in the blanks.... One commenter in one of the reviews asked the perfect question: Can you tell me what type of cord I need to connect the ChromeBook to a television?


    1) The Chrome Book: C H Rome: 9781440490897: Amazon.com: Books


    2) My Google Chromebook: Michael Miller: 9780789743961: Amazon.com: Books


    3) The Complete Idiot's Guide to Google Chrome and Chrome OS: Paul McFedries: 9781615640263: Amazon.com: Books

    While I like Chrome on GTV, I absolutely hate the tabbed browsing on the PC. I kept ending up on the Desktop when trying to navigate from one tab to the next. Or trying to hit back to no effect. W/Windows you can go back as far as ya want. A way to turn off tabbed browsing is essential. Also, once I inadvertently x the wrong tab & end up back on the desktop, there is no way to access the last chrome session.

    W/Windows clicking on IE takes me back to the last page I was on. Also, there are too many limitations on the Chromebook.

    Got enough limitations w/GTV...

    Although Acer is a top rated eBay seller, very high ratings on refurbished PCs, the refurbished Chromebooks don't fare as well. Of 64 negative feedback the last month, most all are unhappy with a Chromebook. Still the refurbished Chromebook rating overall is probably high enough to buy with confidence if you want one, I don't.
