Flip Chromebooks in 2020 - anyone tried these?
#1
I know there have been threads on this issue before but some of these are quite old and refer to outdated models. So...

Has anyone tried the latest flip Chromebooks with MobileSheets? I'm looking at something like the Asus Chromebook Flip C434 which has a 14" 1080p 1920x1080 pixels display. That's a 1.78 aspect ratio.  How does MobileSheets display an A4 PDF sheet music in this aspect ratio? Does it fill the screen or leave chunks of space? Many thanks.

I´v just bought an Acer Chromebook Spin 13 CP713 with 13,5" display, aspect ratio 3:2, screen resolution 2256 x 1504 with Wacom EMR pen. MSP works like a dream, sheets appear perfect as A4 on paper. (I paid 533 Euro for it.)
However I have some issues with BT page turn pedals, they work only in landscape mode (laptop mode) and if I try to turn the tablet to portrait mode, the display turns back to landscape mode. It is a bug in Chrome OS, and I hope it´s going to be addressed. Fortunately I have a USB page turner (wired) and it works fine.
I have another issue regarding MIDI connection, what works fine on my Android tablet, won´t connect in Chromebook.
But I hope, I can figure out how to resolve this problems.

avago - Chromebook devices don't support the default MIDI library in MobileSheetsPro. What you'll need to do is go to Settings->MIDI Settings->Configure MIDI Connections, switch to the Google MIDI library, select the input/output ports and then MIDI should start working.

16x9 ratio is good for video but not the best for sheet music. 3:2 or 4:3 ratios are much better.
I'm using MSPro with Google's Pixel Slate m3 and it's fantastic. Including Bluetooth page turning (Airturn bt-105) in master/slave mode.
Google had $450 Pixel Slate sale (keyboard and pen included).
