As I wait excitedly for my Chinese takeaway I thought I’d update you on my Chromebook sitch. I originally bought it for writing. It was working well with an amazing keyboard until pressing return for a new line in Android apps broke completely. Annoying. And now I’m exploring a more professional sound recording setup I needed Reaper, which isn’t possible on ChromeOS (Linux yes but beyond flakey).
So I’ve gone back to an eight year old Macbook Air and it feels great. I’ve got the old keyboard too. This makes me happy after all the stories I’ve heard about the new ones. Reaper’s installed. How fab is Reaper?! It feels super stable and I can do so much more now. I could have kept the Asus for watching stuff as the screen is top quality but turns out I’m ok with a slightly lower res screen because as long as I’m engrossed in a story, I forget about the screen mighty quick. I’d rather get some money back especially while Ebay has £1 selling fees this weekend. Woo! It was a good experience but a real computer is more powerful and flexible for my current needs.
