    You can dual screen from the hdmi port on your chromebook – plug in an hdmi monitor and it just happens, which is so good. If I recall you can do the same with a TV and close the lid on the chromebook and it will continue to stream to the tv. I have the Toshiba CB2 for loungeroom/travel and an Asus Chromebox with dual screens in my office. Bliss!

      Thanks Terry. When you dual screen with the HDMI, does it function as an extended desktop, or just a mirror of your chromebook screen? And if you plug into a TV is there a slight delay? I remember I used a TV with my desktop once, and it was shocking.

    Try HelloSign, it’s really intuitive and it just works! You can even upload a signature from your phone! Nice!

    And for the other stuff you’ve mentioned that does not work, try searching apps or extensions from the Web Store first.

      Hi Ruben. I tested HelloSign as a way to enable my clients to sign my proposal documents, but it was all too clunky. Gave up on it. I haven’t tried it for signing, myself. I have, however, used the Kami plugin, and I suspect that’ll work for me. If it doesn’t, I’ll give HelloSign another look.

      Which other things do you think there are apps/extensions for? Would love to find some. :-)

      Cheers.

    Wow! Good to know Chrome OS and Chromebooks work well for you. I am using a Chromebook as my main drive now (only using the Windows 10 PC for Photography work) and I am also loving it for the same reasons you listed. This is a great post.

    Dual screen functions as an extended desktop and I’ve never experienced any lag or delay.

      Nice! Thanks Terry. I’ll give it a shot. Eventually… Still loving the freedom of being unencumbered by all that stuff.

    Why not Dropbox?

    1. Glenn Murray wrote on

      Hi James. Thanks for your comment. Dropbox is slightly more sophisticated than Google Drive at syncing (particularly its de-duplication features), but I had issues with files being inexplicably deleted when we trialled Dropbox for Business. That really scared me.

      But there’s more to it than that. Dropbox doesn’t have its own editors (like Google Docs) or its own hardware (like the Chromebook). It’s really just a standalone tool. To use it, I’d still need to use Microsoft Office and local files, which is exactly what I wanted to get away from…

      Hope this answers your question.

      Cheers.
      Glenn

    I’m looking to get serious into freelancing and was wondering if I should get a chromebook… Your post signed it for me, I’m gonna get it!
