We are getting our work laptops replaced with Acer 2315 Chromebooks.  I would like to add an external full size keyboard and mouse.  How do I make sure when buying that they will be compatible with the Acer 315 Chromebook?  Thanks

    Hi kannon8833
    You can use Logitech MK270 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse,

    Pair the wireless mouse:

    1. Power the mouse off and insert the battery.
    2. Insert the wireless receiver into a USB port on the computer.
    3. Place the mouse close to the wireless receiver.
    4. Press all buttons on the mouse (left+middle+right) while you toggle the mouse on.
    5. Release the buttons after 1 second to complete the process.
    6. Repeat steps 1-5 if your mouse did not pair.

    Pair the wireless keyboard:

    Pretty much any USB keyboard and mouse works. If you are worried about running out of USB ports, just use a USB hub to provide the extras.
