Question

Do you have to register a credit card to use the app store?

I want to purchase this for my 9 year old autistic son for christmas. he loves to watch netflix and youtube videos mostly and likes to play games and is always wanting to use my laptop or the desktop but he has 2 sisters that want to use the computers too so we wanted to get him a cheap one of his own. But I am worried about the app store, I don't want him to be able to download anything that may cost money without me knowing about it so I was wondering if there has to be a credit card registered to the account in order for it to work or can he download free apps without a credit card account or is there a way to lock it where I have to put in a pass word to add an app

All you need to download from the Chrome Web Store is a Google Account. You do not need to attach a credit card to download free applications and extensions. No purchases can be made without attaching a payment method to the account. The best option for you would be to not attach a credit card or bank account in order to prevent your son from purchasing anything.

We appreciate your interest in our product and would be glad to serve you as one of our customers.The Chromebook uses the Chrome Web Store and not our service but we can link you to Googles article How to install free apps: https://support.google.com/chrome_webstore/answer/1053369?hl=en&ref_topic=1212392.

We gathered from this article that free apps do not require a CC for installation.

The fan is a moving part so it will make some noise but should not be noticable during use of the Chromebook.

No, this chromebook does not have an optical drive, so you cannot play discs, CD's, or DVD's. As far as your Epson printer is concerned, you will need to have a "cloud-ready" printer for best results. You can check with the manufacturer to see if your printer is considered cloud-ready, and compatible with Google Cloud Print. If not, you can also utilize Google Cloud Print with some classic printers. You will have to check with Epson to see if your printer model has this capacity.

You can change the user interface by installing ChrUbantu. And from what I understand, you can also change this to Linux. Aside from that, I don't believe you can do much else with the OS.

This Chromebook was configured and tested with Chrome OS. We do not test with third party operating systems, therefore we would not be able to advise if it will work with Opensuse 12.3.

How does the Acer Chromebook Speakers compare to the Samsung Chromebook speakers?

I don't know about specs, but I can tell you that the Samsung speakers seem louder and the sound is less "tinny" than the Acer's speakers. The Acer's speakers are located on the bottom of the unit, which amplifies the audio when it's on a table. But if the Acer is on your lap, the sound is a bit muffled. You can always use a "lap desk" on your lap which provides a hard flat surface. Or, you can also use headphones with the Acer which will help with audio quality. Overall, I still like the Acer chromebook better than the Samsung.

The Acer Chromebook comes with two 1 watt, 8 ohm speakers. We are unaware of the speakers and specs the Samsung's Chromebook.

If you scroll all the way down to the bottom of this page, you will see Walmart.com links. Click on "Returns Policy". It indicates that most electronics have a 15-day return policy.
