      Answer

      I decided to go ahead and buy this Chromebook so I thought I might as well answer my own question in case anyone else would like to know. Yes, it does have Dual Band Wireless-AC (2.4GHz & 5GHz) which is great news. The 5GHz band is considerably less congested which gives you less interference from other wireless sources. The 2.4GHz band is is commonly used by other wireless networks as well as cordless phones, garage door openers and even microwave ovens which can greatly interfere with a 2.4GHz wireless network. In my neighborhood there are no other WiFi networks using the 5GHz band to cause interfere with my WiFi network.

        Answer

        Yes. "Microsoft likes to trumpet how Chromebooks don’t have the full desktop version of Microsoft Office, and that’s true. But unless you’re an accountant, you probably don’t need all those fancy features. Microsoft offers a completely free web-based version of Office called Office Online, complete with Word Online, Excel Online, and PowerPoint Online. Microsoft even makes these apps available in the Chrome Web Store. These web apps aren’t just for Chromebook users, though. Windows users could use Office Online to get an official Microsoft Office experience for free, and they let desktop Linux users use an official version of Microsoft Office without hacking around in Wine, too." - are review from PCworld.com

              Answer

              Chromebooks don't work like Windows computers: in general you don't download apps. Instead, you access them via the Internet. Word is no exception. So, you will be able to use Word on this computer, and it is free.

              No you won't be able to use it on a Chromebook. Photoshop Elements 14 will only install on a Windows or Mac computer. There are however several Adobe Photoshop Apps available through Google Play as well many others to chose from.
