Long Time No Update.. so let's talk AMD and Zillow

 Hey All!


I know it's been quite a long time since I posted so I just wanted to check in and apologize for not posting in what seems like forever.

There is not a lot of news on the Chrome OS front except for one major thing... AMD Ryzen Chromebooks are on the way!

I personally prefer AMD processors to Intel processors and AMD's Ryzen processors are the cream of the crop. My Windows laptop (that I hardly use anymore because of how much I prefer using Chrome OS) has an AMD Ryzen 5 processor in it for example. Lenovo and HP have already announced Chromebooks with AMD Ryzen processors on the way and AMD has said that Acer and Asus will also be announcing such devices in the near future. According to benchmarks, the AMD Ryzen processors outperform Intel Core processors, so this is very exciting for us real estate professionals who want better performance in the devices we use to conduct our business.

I feel very excited with these developments regarding AMD... Unfortunately I can't say the same about Zillow.

Zillow, one of the websites used the most for real estate, is now trying to compete with real estate professionals and that just is not cool. While Zillow is not always accurate, it is what people use because of how well they have positioned themselves on the market. Now they are trying to shut real estate professionals (who pay for their lead services) out of the process by trying to become the entire process themselves. 

So as far as Zillow is concerned... it's nothing more than a FSBO search for me at this point. There are many other services that work on Chrome OS that will be much more helpful for real estate as a profession than Zillow is. It's not what I normally talk about on here, but I felt it was important so I included it in this post.

It's still crazy with COVID out there, so I hope you all are doing well. I will now work on posting on here more often as Chrome OS news tends to heighten going into the holiday season. 

So, until next time,

-Dave

A new gem from HP

Hello All, HP has been on a roll lately, now coming out with a new flagship consumer Chromebook, the Chromebook x360 14c. There will be multiple variants of this Chromebook and it will be available both directly from HP and from Best Buy. At minimum, you get a Pentium 6405u processor with 4 GB of RAM and at the high end you get an Intel 10th Gen i5 with 8 GB of RAM. I am not too sure about hard drive specifications but the good news is that it does come with all the necessary ports including a card reader! It is also USI Pen compatible for those who like an e-signature to look like a wet signature. This is a 14" convertible machine with a touchscreen which should be the right mix of business and pleasure for most real estate professionals. By all accounts, the lowest spec Pentium model will start at $499 once it becomes available. I am personally very interested in this one and I may very well get one myself, though I've probably said that before on here and haven

Just Checking In

Hello, Just thought I'd check in. There is not a lot going on right now in terms of Chrome OS for Real Estate because of the recent events. I stand with the protesters and I have spoken at depth about this on my personal social media accounts, so I will not go into detail on that here other than to say that Black Lives Matter. Just wanted to make sure everyone was doing well. I hope have some news to post in the very near future in terms of Chrome OS for real estate. Until next time, Dave

Using Chromebooks for Training

Hello All, One thing Realtors and Brokers have to consistently do is train and earn CEUs (Continuing Education Units). The cool thing is that this can all be done completely online and since every online learning platform for Real Estate that I have encountered is completely web-based, that means you can do it on Chrome OS! A couple great places to get real estate training done online are: The CE Shop NAR Online Learning Center I am aware that there are other sites out there; I just personally have not used them yet so I am not going to recommend a site that I have not personally used yet. Another thing I might add is that we should not just be focused on what is just required in terms of CEUs, we should also be constantly learning about different types of technology and how they may help (or in some cases not help) how we conduct business in the Real Estate industry. Usually I have a little more to say than this, but with the current pandemic situation things have been a
