I thought I should post here a mini update. After some research, I purchased the Acer Chromebook 14. I originally wanted the Toshiba Chromebook 2 but it's no longer being sold.
I'm going to try it out on my commute and see how I like it. I tried it this morning and managed to get some writing done. I did have a minor glitch where it kind of shut off abruptly though fully charged. I'm not sure if it was my sleep induced mind but I couldn't figure out how to turn it back on.
I think I was pressing the wrong button. I'm used to using my SO's happy where the power button is on the left and not the right. Or... It could be a shit device. Either way, I can test it out for about two weeks and return it if it doesn't work out.
Anyways, thank you, everyone, for your input.
