Been in and out of Dr's offices and hospital so wanted to get a small lite computer. Cheapest in this area was a Chromebook. Got it, made for Leonova so figured it might be OK. Went to set it up and it said if I didn't have a Google account, I could use it as guest. Did at hospital for 5 days, was OK with the computer and it was doing what I wanted. Un pluged it turned it off and went home. Turned it back on and all data etc was gone. Now figured out that if I don't agree to play with Google, it makes a [poor fly swatter. Now in process of trying to load Linux on it. Found out that what I considered paranoid are the main features of the system.. Since everything is in Googles hands, can check in with other computers, replace computer, loose computer and everything is still there.
