A friend just gave me a practically new Chromebook...Is there any use for this computer in amateur radio? Any programs written for it? Thanks a lot...

It is useful for web surfing in guest mode.  When you turn it off any files that were downloaded to your Chromebook go away.

Unless you save them to cloud...

Two of my sons use one for their music (on different continents) when out and save things such as audio and video on a USB card that they can play back in their studios or share those files. Geoff is here in NH and Brian lives in Montenegro right on the Adriatic Grin.

Remove the Chrome OS and install Linux for more control of the device.
