    Bought one, already having issues. Worked great yesterday, opened it today signed in goes to home page, blinks, page goes black for 5 seconds, then back to home page then black then sign in page. Repeat. Third day of use not so happy. Hopefully something simple.

    Forget a power wash. Try this... It's basically reloading the entire mac-hine. When you get these refurbs I usually reload them anyway.

    You can't "install" word but you can run Microsoft's cloud apps. Pointless though as docs is almost the exact same thing.

    I've personally used 6 different chrome devices and have never had a single issue. Nada. I'm sure once you reset you'll be good to go.

    I almost bought one for my mom but I didn't want to spend 50 hours a week on the phone with her explaining that it's not a PC. :facepalm:

    I'm thinking this will cut down on my PC type calls. It's hard to fuck up a Chromebook. They are all but immune to malware and are pretty simple. I'll find out soon enough.
