Synopsis:

My Chromebook, 2nd Edition is the one-stop guide to Chrome OS and Google Chromebooks. It is updated to cover the latest version of Chrome OS, including the new desktop, and the latest Chromebook and Chromebox models. It starts with basic unboxing and configuration and works through customization, cloud storage, Chrome Apps, and troubleshooting.

 

Because of its web-based nature, using a Chromebook, Chromebox  and the Chrome OS is quite a bit different from using a traditional notebook PC and Microsoft Windows. To get the most use out of your new Chromebook or Chromebox, then, you need to become familiar with how cloud computing works - as well as all the ins and outs of your new Chromebook, Chromebox, and Chrome OS. This book will cover:

  • The new Chrome OS windowed desktop
  • New Chromebooks (focusing on the Samsung Series 3 model, but also including the new $Acer model)
  • New Chromebox (Samsung Series 3 model), including how to connect to a living room TV or home theater system for streaming audio and video
  • Storing/sharing files with Google Drive
  • Working offline with Offline Gmail and Google Docs
  • We’ll also cover all the major/minor changes in the OS since the last edition
  • Coverage of many new Chrome Apps.
  • Coverage of changes to Google Play (for music/video playback), Google Search, and Google+.
  • And much more….
