    I am thinking about buying a new laptop. I can get a chromebook for under $100.00 I know that we get what we pay for but I don't need a computer with all the bells and whistles anymore. How are the new chromebooks?

    :)

    Can i use windows on a chromebook?


    External drives are listed as USB hard drives.

    @ paulyjustin Under Storage Devices, it lists USB hard drives and thumb drives. USB hard drives are external drives; I don't think internal hard drives tend to be USB. Here's a copy of what I found at File types and external devices that work on Chromebooks - Chromebook Help

    Filesystems
    You can access files on external devices connected to your Chromebook if they use the following types of filesystems:

    • FAT (FAT16, FAT32, exFAT)
    • HFS+ (read-only on journaled HFS+)
    • ISO9660 (read-only)
    • MTP
    • NTFS
    • UDF (read-only)

    Storage devices
    • USB hard drives and thumb drives
    • USB CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives (read-only)

    Remove a storage device safely by clicking Eject

    .

    Note that under file systems, your drive should be formatted as Fat 32 or NTFS; probably not something strictly Chrome if you want to continue using it with Windows. I'm pretty sure you don't want your stuff read only. Chromebooks :) From what I see, it doesn't look like a GPT/UEFI formatted drive will work with Chrome.
