Old Chromebooks (which) don’t get updates

(Some) Chromebooks, tablets, and other devices…are subject to Google’s End of Life policy:

“When a device reaches End of Life (EOL), it means that the product model is considered obsolete and automatic software updates from Google are no longer guaranteed.

“Google will provide advanced notice of a model’s EOL Date on this page as soon as it is launched, giving our customers time to make purchase decisions.”

Some past their prime…

Asus Nexus 7 (2012) – Jul 2015, Android
Google Cr-48 – Dec 2015, Chrome
Samsung Chromebook Series 5 – Jun 2016, Chrome
Acer AC700 – Aug 2016, Chrome

 

Changing out the Hard Drive – Asus K55

Yesterday evening when I jumped on Periscope @techtakradio I decided it would be fun to exchange the hard drive in my Asus K55 Laptop with the Kingston 120GB SSD Drive I found at OfficeMax on Sale. What Started to be a simple exchange turned into 18 minutes on Periscope as we talked about Windows 10 and the Benefits of SSD Technology.

We were able to save the original meaning of our Periscope and edit it for you to check out on the ease of Switching out the Hard Drive in your Laptop
