I have recently purchased a chromebook and need some help setting a few things up.

I would like to download itunes, skype however they were unable to download.

I know chromebooks don't have an operating system therefore I can use google docs to make and edit documents.

I have always been an apple user but I swtiched over to HP because I am fairly familiar with the brand since I use at work.

I am regreting my chromebook purchase because I didn't think I would need to use different applications in the chrome store. Please help!

Re: Chromebook

Hello gaspard618...


I'm sorry that you have some usability concerns with your new Chromebook.


As you know, Chromebooks are designed to function within Google's architecture - and applications like iTunes and Skype are not available.  Fortunately, Google understands these concerns and has provided some alternatives:

The environment is definitely different, but is worthwhile... stable, secure, and a lot for your money!  And as it grows in popularity, application support will probably increase.


I hope this helps.  Good luck!
