- Answer Yes, this can run Microsoft office 365 online.
QuestionIs this compatible with Adobe Lightroom Classic? I am needing something that will have the right specs for it to edit photos.
- Answer No, sorry, you can't run that program on a Chromebook. You can use the Lightroom for Mobile app only.
QuestionIs the look of the desktop the look this always has or can you go to a classic style desktop?
- Answer This model runs ChromeOS. This is how ChromeOS looks and it is different than Windows.
- Answer You can use a MicroSD card for storage and other use such as playing music.
QuestionIf I connect this to an external monitor, can I close the HP (lower the screen onto the keyboard), or must it stay in an open position? I want to use an external keyboard/mouse, and do not want to use the HP's screen, while connected to the ext monitor.
- Answer You can configure it to keep going with just the external monitor while the lid is closed on the Chromebook itself. For two monitors, you'll need the screen on the unit for the moment. Display Port MST support (so you can have two external & extended monitors) appears to be coming in the next major release of Chrome OS, so with the right USB-C docking station, you can drive two external monitors in extended mode by daisy-chaining the display port interfaces.
- Answer There is not a specific docking station for Chromebooks, but you can use any standard universal hub or docking station.
QuestionThe unit came with a huge long cord and small brick to plug in and charge. The charging cable plugs into what appears to be a standard USB-C port. Is there any harm in using a different USB-C cord and charger such as the one for the Pixel 3?
- Answer We recommend using the power cord and adapter that the Chromebook comes with for proper voltage management and efficiency, as well as in an effort to avoid damaging your device(s) and cables!
- Answer Yes, the keyboard and keypad automatically turn off in tablet mode.
QuestionIn the Q&A, someone mentioned I-Tunes does not work with this model. Best Buy, can you address this please? Thank you.
- Answer Unfortunately we are not seeing that comment anywhere. iTunes at this time is not compatible with Google Chrome's operating system, which is why it will not work. That being said, you can add your music content from iTunes into the Google Play Music library in order to enjoy your media!
- Answer This model does not have the ability to upgrade the storage. You could use an External Drive or SD card for extra storage.
QuestionDoes this have hdmi slot
- Answer Hi Doug! The 14C-CA0053DX Chromebook does not have an HDMI port, however there are other ports that can be used with an HDMI adapter to connect your ancillary display - 2 SuperSpeed USB Type-C® 5Gbps signaling rate (USB Power Delivery, DisplayPort™ 1.2); 1 SuperSpeed USB Type-A 5Gbps signaling rate.
