Looks like a solid platform for an HTPC to me, especially with the built-in IR receiver on the front panel. Just need to add some RAM and an HDD/SSD. »
As a lefty, I'll say that those side back/forward buttons are a pain, even if the mouse is symmetrical in all other respects. I probably can't speak for all lefties with this, but I keep my index finger over the left button, and just reach over with that finger to hit the right-mouse button when needed. That leaves… »
Ah, but can you install Chrome for Android?
Okay, that was a joke, but seriously, I wonder if there will be a way to install APKs, or if Chromebooks will only run Google-approved apps. »
Small credit unions often carry both tickets and season/annual passes for nearby parks that they will sell to members at a discount.

I've known of folks who used Rit to revive their old and beloved black clothes (pants, hoodies, etc), but I just don't think of faded jeans as an issue. Maybe I'm just sloppy, but in a world where half the jeans you buy are already faded right off the rack, I don't mind wearing jeans that are faded. I figure it just… »
