If it is a real ipod, I think you need itunes which is not supported on chromebook.

At least that is what I get from reading the answers on the web.

I don't have an Ipod but my wife and son each have one and you can just download songs directly on it using the wi-fi. As far as storing photos, I store them on Photobucket because the app uploads them all automatically from my phone.

I'm not trying to talk you out of buying the ASUS though because as I told you in the PM, I love mine.

I've had a HP Chromebook for a little more than a year, if you like what you have been able to do with your Windows PC, stick with Windows.

Chromebooks are ok but limited and I'm not impressed with how fragile the device itself is.

If its going to be your only devices go with the laptop. If it's going to be a traveling device or just to go sit on the deck, go to the cabin or coffee shop type of thing the Chromebook is great. It just won't do what a laptop will. For me, I would spend the extra and get the laptop.

Yes, but is it really that much different?

No drives, minimal storage, apps are primarily internet dependent.

I guess I don't see much difference between a Chromebook and a tablet to warrant the outrageous price they ask for them when you can get a 10" tablet and a keyboard that will do basically the same thing, from what I gather.

In that respect, no there isn't much difference between the 2. I paid about the same price for my Nexus 7 Gen 1 as I did for the HP Chromebook but I would consider my Nexus 7 tablet more useful BUT I still use my PC much more than either one of those devices.

    • Did a lot of my riding and camping up on the North shore of lake Superior.  I added a Seat concepts seat and a ATV cover on that. Windshield, skid plate, soft side bags, 12v plug for a GPS and gps mount and foam over grips. No crazy mods, kept it all stock for reliability. At 42 HP stock it had plenty of power for me and I would rather get there then get half way faster!  Lol 
    • 2009 Sportsman 500HO. only had about 450 miles on it.
    • Just south of you we all kinds of birds. Mostly wood peckers, finches and blue jays. filling everything about every other day.
    • I sold the last of my ATV's in Sept while the used market was hot with intentions to upgrade. I figured there wouldn't be any better time where the price on old beat up machines would be higher. I couldnt believe what people were willing to pay for 15-20yr old ATV's that had seen some tough use.   My plan was all these people were buying stuff and realized they would never use it and sell it when they didnt want to store it for the winter. I figured with a saturated market we would see some good deals to be had this time of year but people are just buying everything up at absurd prices. Even the people who are upside down on their toys are asking way to much. 
    • Leech, I saw where you were looking for riding partners, I'd take you up on it now. Lol. I imagine you have a lot of nice dual sport riding in your area, we have lots of it in western ND also, hence the DR. I love this bike. I wish you were parting with that white one about now, I'd take it off your hands. I like that color.  I've done a few mods to mine, the seat had to go! I've added an engine case guard since this photo was taken. I'm waiting for bark busters to get here, they are a necessity. Then I will be good.  
    • I hunted Idaho this past fall for deer and elk. We seen a fair number of turkeys. I plan to go out a little early for the hunt next year. I was thinking I could add a turkey hunt to the fun. Does anyone have any experience hunting turkey in the fall in Idaho? I would be deer / elk unit 6. Thanks minky
    • What kind of wheeler do you have? Im just waiting for my new Honda Rancher to show up that I put money down on a month ago. Everything is getting hard to come by these days. Starting to look like another winter where we get to ride for a week or 2 in March again
    • Hi.. wondering about ice reports around MN, specifically around the Duluth area..hope someone will read this and reply,☺️    
    • bird feeders are awefully quiet lately around home. not sure if no snow on the ground has something to do with it or not??🤔
    • Looks like next spring now since I'm hoping for some snow soon for the sled. Fixed up a little hunting/toy hauler to hunt out of and haul the wheeler with this fall. So may be I'll park right in your lot!  😏
