FYB, you keep doing you man. I have had my Chromebook for almost 5 years. That's ancient in modern terms. And in the summer, well, essentially the security updates stop such that I will have to replace it.
Do you still have by chance an Atari game system?
Anyway, I get you, I learned typing in the late 1980s towards the end of the days when it was on typewriters, which were then electric. I did my papers in high school on a typewriter as well as during much of college since the computers back then in the early 1990s were full of glitches and they crashed a lot too. Those floppy disks were crap too back then before CD-ROM and so forth.
And indeed, I can relate, only with Windows 7 circa 2010 as well as a Macbook could a computer keep up with my typing speed. I HATED Internet Explorer and got rid of it for Safari back in 2008. What a piece of junk it was always.
Anyway, after 6 years on a Macbook, I made the jump here in 2016 and this is the best I have ever had with seldom an issue keeping up with my typing speed across sometimes 10 or more tabs!
