I'm a long time Apple user and I use my i-tines with i-pod the most. I realize I no longer need a computer. I want a Chromebook, how do manage my music? Will I still be able to use my i-pod? Dec 15, 2013
Google allows you to upload up to 32GB of your own music using the Google Play Music app then retrieve that music on any Google Android compatible device. This software is completely compatible with iTunes and Mac, and in fact, it is how I move music from device to device. Upload it to Google Play Music servers, then download on any Android device I want. You can also stream if you choose to save space on your HD. Very similar to the premium use on Spotify app, you can even upgrade to the premium membership paying $7.99 a month and have access to Google's entire library of music to download or stream at your pleasure.

Is it usb charging? Nov 26, 2013
No, it uses a smaller, somewhat lighter and flatter than usual, 65W charging brick with a traditional round laptop plug. The brick input is 100 to 240V, 50 to 60 Hz, and 1.6 A, so it should work fine in most countries (the AC plug for the brick is the newer IBM PC style). The output is 19V at 3.42A, center pin positive.
Yes! You can use Google docs, gmail, google keep and much more without internet!
Yes. Google Docs is a part of Google Apps. Its accessible from Google Drive. It's able to do 99% of what MS Word does. And it's free. In fact there is a Google Apps that emulates or replaces everything in the Office suite. All you need is a free Google account. I've been using Google Apps for over 4 years now and it's amazing. In fact, it's the main reason why a Chromebook makes sense for misty purchasers. Do yourself a favor and research Google Apps. Once you do you'll see why a Chromebook is such a great choice.
Does it has fan? If yes, is it noisy? Jan 6, 2014
I seem to recall reading in a review somewhere that the Acer C720P does have a fan but can't locate that source just now. More to the point though, this chromebook is essentially silent. It does get slightly warm on the bottom but not hot. Fan or not it is hushabye quiet.
