Chromebooks I found these online. I think Android is in a position to really move into the computer market and put a dent in the big brands' share. Maybe. Maybe not. My new phone is too smart for me. I finally can reliably answer a phone call on it.
I dunno...I am now a confirmed Mac user, because they just don't seem to get viruses they way PCs do. After upgrading several PCs after they got too messed up to de-frag anymore, we got a used MacBook on Ubid. I think we ended up paying about $300. That was 2 summers ago, and the thing is as good as the day we got it, and it has even been dropped once! I would never pay the price of a new Apple computer, but for what I do; check email, this site, Ravelry and typing a few papers, this MacBook has been a virus-free little workhorse.

I must add that I detest my iPhone, it seems to have a mind of its own, but my daughter looked at it and tried a few things. Her diagnosis: "Your phone is messed up," so I think I got a lemon. It's still under warranty, so I think I'll take it back.
