Keith you mentioned that you were switching from Mac to Chromebooks for educators..

I'm curious if there is a difference between the teacher/student device on the teacher device.  And has anyone tried a Pixel or other high end Chromebook.  Are they worth it? 

  The reason I ask is that while I was working directly with students I wanted to make sure that my device was the same as theirs so I would know what their issues are and be able to support them. 

Ergonomics has always been important to me, but even more so since my work now has a different focus and I spend long hours on my computer supporting my online students.  I was having some issues with wrist, shoulder, arm pain - that went away after I started I switched from a cheaper machine or Chromebook to a Mac.  

Since I live in the cloud,  I think I could use a Chromebook as my main device if it had a keyboard /tract pad and display that were ergonomically designed to meet the long hours I spend on a computer.   I find that the cheap Chromebook I have as my secondary device is challenging for long spells on the computer. 

Just curious if anyone has experience with a Chromebook that has been designed with ergonomics in mind.    Any recommendations welcomed!
