Before I get into my thoughts on the device itself I should point out that this isn’t my first attempt at a device to focus with. In fact, up until the end of 2017 I had gone through a string of iPads and fancy keyboards ending with an iPad Pro and the Apple keyboard case. With every generation I bought into the idea that “this time it can be a productive device” without ever finding a way to make it so for me.
It’s an important acknowledgement that he took himself to every device and had the same problems with focus. We do the same thing with productivity tools, change them when the current one has 200 tasks we’re never going to do.
Chris ends by saying that the way to evaluate if the Chromebook works for him is if we see more blog posts. So Chris, I’ll be watching for them.
