chromebook accessories

Sorry, we just need to make sure you’re not a robot.

I don’t need it too frequently, but when I do, it’s there — and all I do is plug it into a USB port, connect an Ethernet cable, and I’m good to go; Chrome OS automatically detects the connection and I’m online in seconds.
Luckily, the solution’s pretty simple: All you need is a cheap little adapter that lets you connect your Chromebook to Ethernet via USB.
Speaking of Google, I’ve been told the company stocks Cisco-made adapters for Chromebook use on its own campus; you can find those for $25 at Amazon at the moment.
There’s just one problem with relying on a Chromebook while on the road: Most Chromebooks lack a good old-fashioned Ethernet port.
I learned early on — back when I was traveling with my clunky old first-gen Samsung Chromebook — that not having the option to plug in when needed can be a real problem.

Previously, when I needed something lightweight and portable, I’d take an iPad, but between two six-hour flights, plus several days of invariably waking up earlier than anyone else around and wanting to use that time to write, I thought it might be more comfortable to something with a keyboard.
That’s more or less how I assumed the Chrome OS would work on a Chromebook as well, and if it did, I couldn’t tell because the whole device was dead, despite having been fully charged and unused since the night before.
By the time I had an opportunity to plug in the Chromebook and troubleshoot my problems the next morning, I was the only person awake.
I closed the clamshell case, stuffed the Chromebook and its power cord into my bag, and dashed home to try and get the dog to her caretakers on time.
The fact that I logged in successfully with my Google account seemed like a sure sign the Chromebook would be plug-and-play ready from there on out.
I signed out the Google Chromebook, made sure it was fully charged and completely wiped from any testing my colleagues had done.

"You can do some things offline," he said, "but I didn’t spend too much time evaluating what you can run." Seeing as my job is to evaluate , I figured I had plenty of time to experiment with apps.
On the phone, I compose in the note-syncing service Evernote, and because I have a Premium account, I can access "offline notebooks." That’s how I’ve gotten work done on an iPad before, too.
There’s no question that I should have spent more time reading about the Chromebook before hopping on the plane.

If you’re heading somewhere where you’re able to listen to sound free of wires (see above) then you’ll want to hook up some external speakers.
Maybe a bigger, heavier, more intentionally shaped device would make it easier to do, but now it just seems like a pipe dream to have access to the three-finger gestures on a mouse to any real satisfaction.
Whether you’re mooching on down to your local coffee shop to do some work, or jetting off on vacation for some much needed time out, you don’t need to leave your Chromebook behind.
External mice are fully supported in Chrome OS, with settings for adjusting pointer speed and configuring additional buttons.
Lights can be bought cheaply from discount stores or online and, since they’re both lightweight and low-powered, make ideal travelling companions.
If u know or any accessories I can buy please help me I can’t figure out how to use the chrome book I’m starting to hate it.
As well as protecting your device from any accidental bumps and scrapes, a sleeve or bag can double up as storage for other accessories on this list.
For holding hangouts in public places, hunt down a pair with a built-in microphone — but avoid those with controls, as many users have reported issues when using them on Chromebooks.
Also does anyone know how to share pics to fb after u upload them to chrome book I can’t figure out how to share them.
With no need to clutter up ports with additional dongles, or have battery-sapping Bluetooth turned on, they’re well worth looking at.
It’s relatively easy to pick up bags for the Samsung Series 3 and Acer C7 – they are very standard sizes, and pretty much any 11.6″ widescreen case should work.
Here’s a rough guide – use the approximate bag size to search for what you need, and check the internal dimensions of the bag against your model to be sure that your lovely Chromebook will fit.
It’s likely that you won’t be able to use any special mouse buttons (like “browser back”) but the standard buttons and scrolling should work great.
You can use any regular headphones on any Chromebook – the Samsung Series 3 in particular has bizarrely great audio quality.
While 16 GB may well be enough storage for most of the tasks you’ll be completing with the Chromebook, having some extra external storage for locally saved documents and media files can make your life a little easier when you aren’t actively connected to the Web.
If you don’t have a Chromebook with integrated 3G, you may benefit from a portable hotspot or USB wireless modem for times when you’re out of reach of available Wi-Fi.
Samsung home appliances combine stylish design with innovative features to turn a house into your dream home.
After you’ve gone all hipster boasting your Chromebook an’all, you probably don’t want to get caught using some kind of an old clunker for a mouse, end up looking all pixelated on your Google plus Hangout or come across all garbled while on a Google Talk session, now do you? Not to worry, there are great Chromebook accessories out there that will make you shine in all your beauty.
Depending on the type of Chromebook you’re using you’ve either got a nice onboard HD Webcam that works well with GTalk and Google+ with its Hangout feature or you’ve got a somewhat okay VGA webcam at a measly .3-Megapixels. The first one being the Series 5 550, the latter the newest Chromebook.

The SAMC2VGAUGEK Accessory Bundle for the Samsung Chromebook 2 & Series 3 is an add-on kit containing two StarTech.com adapter products that let you extend the display and network capabilities of your port-limited Chromebook.
Also included is a USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter, which adds wired network support and offers the added benefit of an integrated USB pass-through port to keep your USB 3.0 port available for other peripherals.
Though extremely portable, the Chromebook often lacks the necessary ports to connect to various desktop displays/projectors and wired networks when traveling between boardrooms, home / remote offices, trade-shows, hotels and conference centers.
Unlike a typical tight sleeve, this small attache case has plenty of pockets and storage room to stash all your related Chromebook accessories, such as the AC/power cord, wireless mouse, hard drive, USB stick, and so on — as well as a separate pocket for documents, magazines, books, folders, and so on.
With the Chromebook’s small footprint, the lapdesk area is wide enough that you’ll have room to use a portable mouse with your Chromebook while seated or reclined — an indispensible feature.
It’s the perfect size for a portable mouse, and the wireless “nano” USB dongle is so tiny that you can leave it plugged into your Chromebook at all times without worrying about anything breaking.
