    You’re kind of selling me on a Chromebook.

    Maybe preinstall some malware ?

    (I mean other than the malware that most new computers already come with, like McAfee)

    Even complex/large spreadsheets (macros and UDFs) can be a problem with a chromebook.

    (But I use an iPad for OBD-II)

    I stuck with the ASUS from the original post. I received it today, and it seems very well made, also it states that it's military grade. I'm not sure what that means the military laptop I use in the Guard is armored. It is quite, fast, light, and I was surprised that it has a low gloss screen. I downloaded a free game that I thought would exercise the graphics card. It plays it like a champ and didn't get very warm, but I only played it for 30 minutes. I don't think I'm going to regret buying it.
