Cheap phones are cheap for a reason. With phones, you pretty much get what you pay for. The cost differences usually boil down to low vs. high end hardware such as the processor (CPU), camera quality and amount (capacity) + speed of memory. These will make the difference in life of the phone and quality of your experience (ie. frustration). In the end, you may wind up needing to buy a new phone sooner with a cheap model and possibly spending more by having to buy 2 phones in the same time period you could have just purchased a single good quality phone. Although this article talks a lot about Android phones, the message is the same for any cellphone brand. Read this article for the risks on buying a cheap cellphone.
A Chromebook is a laptop, but it runs Google's Chrome OS, not Windows or Mac OS X. As such, you cannot install Windows software on it like Microsoft Word, Excel or the like, although you can use Microsoft Office Online, the cloud version of Office. Google also has look-a-like software apps. The Chromebook is not designed to be a performance laptop, but rather for the person that uses mostly the internet with most applications and data residing in the cloud since there is limited storage on the laptop itself. Since the Chromebook is designed for use on the internet, many apps just won't work if you're not connected via WiFi. However, there are more than 200 offline Chrome apps that can work without internet connectivity, including Gmail, Pocket and Google Drive, and tons of the Android apps coming soon will also work offline. Chromebook benefits include low prices and long battery life. You can find lots of information on the Chromebook here and Chromebook buying advice/information here.

Do you print a lot and spend too much $$$ on inkjet ink? There's a solution -- Continuous Ink Systems (CIS). The system consists of a reservoir that contains 10-25 times the amount of ink in a standard inkjet cartridge at a fraction of the cost. Each standard OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) ink cartridge usually contains 5-10 ml of ink while each of the CIS ink reservoirs can contain up to 50 ml. There is a big savings on ink. A standard set of five (5) OEM ink cartridges usually costs $80-$90. A set of five (5) CIS ink bottles, each containing as much as 10x the amount of ink costs 50% less!
