Chromebook

Wifey says her old XP (thinkpad t41) laptop is slow. She says it's tolerable...but...well...you know...

I've created an alert for Chromebook deals, but they're not so frequent. I could be waiting for months so I thought I may just bite the bullet and get something that's not a FP deal (EEK!).

Requirements:
  • No real price restrictions - just want a decent deal for the $
  • HDMI (would like to also get a nice display for when it's at home which is 95% of the time) so screen size isn't very important
  • To be used for email, surfing, youtube, light office use

Thanks. Smilie
