I am currently typing this post on my "new" refurbished Chromebook. So far, I'm impressed.
Our family is definitely to that point where I had to make a decision...either keep working on my phone while the kids use the tablet to get school work done. With tax, I got this basic computer for right around $90 and I have no complaints so far. The keyboard works great, the screen is perfect condition, and the body only shows a few signs of wear. It's charging great and the next test will be to see how the battery holds up. But let's be honest - even if the battery doesn't hold up like a brand new one, it is still a great option for the kids (and me) to use when doing work, especially since we are using more and more Google drive to create and store documents.
My only complaint - there is limited storage when downloading images. However, this will be as simple solve when I get up and grab a thumb drive that will allow me to transfer files between my work computer and this one when Google drive won't cut it.
A little about me
I blog for fun, to get my thoughts in order. I am a mom to two frustrating and wonderful kids and one diva dog. My full-time gig is teacher and I do some side hustle with a few DS businesses. I love working with people...but I also value my alone time since in reality I'm a huge introvert.
