It's been a couple months...

 Hey All,


I know it has been a couple months since I last posted on here. While I have been following Chrome OS developments, I have been waiting for something more concrete to write about and that should be coming soon.


CES, the Consumer Electronics Show, is happening in early January and should be giving us not only new Chrome OS devices... but other great tech for real estate professionals for us to delve into on here as well. Personally, I am looking forward to all of it. The main rumors going around for what will be unveiled are new Samsung and Asus Chromebooks... but as always, there could be more (and I personally hope for more in that regard). 


I also hopefully will get my hands on a working version Parallels for Chrome OS to see how well Parallels works on Chrome OS. I've used Parallels on Macs in the passed and it worked really well for not just Microsoft Office applications, but Windows based applications and programs in general.


That's all for now. Have a great holiday everyone, a happy new year, and I will be back on here with news from CES regarding Chrome OS for Real Estate Professionals.


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
