who provides cellular? Oct 18, 2012
Verizon by default provides the cellular service, as well as 100mb a month for two years for free. However, the Gobi 3G chip supports GSM networks, and the Chromebook has a SIM card slot, which means that AT&T, T-Mobile, or other SIM carriers can be used on the chromebook as well. It does require a bit of setup to use a provider other than Verizon. Google has some good information here: http://support.google.com/chromeos/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1059122
Yes, it has wifi. The 3G is meant more as a backup when on the road, rather than as a primary internet connection. For example, it has a 100mb monthly limit.
Good evening, I want to buy a 3G Chromebook, the question is have shipping to Venezuela and if the 3G works here in Venezuela or the telephony of here Jan 2, 2013
I live in Puerto Rico, and no, it won't work. After long discussions with Google (great customer service) and Verizon (poor customer service) we determined that even though Verizon has a presence here, it was not providing the "prepaid" service the Chromebook uses. You have two options, that I know of... get a Verizon sim card in your country, use a generic (universal) sim card from one of your local providers and reset the default modem in your unit to accept other providers. This is very easy, look for it in the web, even Google has the instructions. And, as you may know, you can use your phone as a hotspot, or get a mobile wifi device (mifi). Hope this helps.
What about Quicken? Oct 22, 2012
Geez, it's not a regular laptop. It runs on an ARM chip, not Intel. If Quicken makes a Chrome browser extension, you are in luck, but you can't just install stuff like on Windows or OSX. It is essentially a browser. I am buying one, so that is not a putdown. I use my Android tablets more than my computers at home, so I can't wait to give it a go. I bought the 3G model when I read about it, cancelling my wi-fi order.
HDMI ports on laptops are OUT ONLY
