Earlier this week I purchased a new laptop from Amazon. Most likely something that many of you do each and every day. I did this in anticipation of replacing the three-year-old Samsung Chromebook.
Friday arrived and so did the laptop. With much anticipation, I opened up the box and began to explore the new device. It was a fast machine. However, there soon began to be issues with the device.
The device wouldn’t download Google Chrome. In doing some investigation I found that this is an issue that is known and been going on for a few years. I then find out that the device can’t or won’t download or update the apps that are on the machine. This includes a paid and up to date subscription to Microsoft Office.
So, back it goes for a refund. Now to once again begin a search for a new laptop.
