Is the apps store coming to this?

As per comment 2 above (or repeated here below):

I've just got a Toshiba Chromebook 2 - Google are rolling out app support to certain chromebooks and this Acer model is included. You'll be able to load apps as if you were using the Android operating system. Microsoft office etc etc... and it will all sync with your Android ecosystem. This laptop is a bargain - ideal.

Yes it does.
Thanks

I really wanted to buy this and upgrade the RAM to 4gb. But it appears to me that the RAM is soldered onto the motherboard and therefore can not be swapped out. Real shame, 2gb is not going to kick the mustard for me. And I think I'd prefer to buy an alternative device than try import the American 4gb version.
Is only having 2gb ram really sooo bad.
I am still debating, based on other peoples experience, wether or not to keep mine.
I wouldn't worry about it, but it really would depend on your usage. It is a £99.99 Chromebook, and for that price performance will be compromised. Slow CPU, slow bulk storage (and not much of it) and 2GB RAM. I think most users are happy with it for the price.
I have never found 2GB limiting for casual use, that has been on a C720, however that has a better CPU and storage. I am typing this on a T100 Chi which has 2GB RAM and EMMC, with a slightly better processor, and have never experienced any real problems with multiple tabs. A decent Ad-blocker makes a huge difference though.
At the moment you are not going to find anything better for £100.
Thanks for your comments. They are much appreciated.
Which ad blocker do you use then?
uBlock Origin. I have only been using it for a couple of weeks, but I am very happy with it.

Thanks for that
Thanks, made me look on Amazon Warehouse too. Around £92 there in 'very good' condition but with the 20% student discount that is running on Amazon Warehouse deals at the moment it works out at just under £75! Bargain. Bought!

I have this Chromebook, as well as two other more expensive ones and seem to always use this more. As stated, it's due the update very shortly to enable android apps. As for touch screen, personal preference, but I have no use for it. Don't use it on my other. Great price.
Until chrome book has touch screen and supports Android play store, useless to buy.

Delivery is only from 30th September as well as collection so no good for me

This is as new.

The brand new one is only £20 more.

Personally, I would never buy an as new just to merely save £20 on a £250 laptop. That is crazy.

the price difference has to be a lot bigger.

Poor picture quality. Better buy nvidia shield tv box
I can answer this one, but I'm generous so anyone else want a go before me?

Yes Hukd is a commonplace. this is no better than a nowtv box with plex tho ?? with that (at 20) you get a free months movies or Entertainment channel ?


​So it's no better than the now tv box at Netflix or bt sport?
Now tv box is better at itv player though.
Unfortunately you have to plump for a roku (Un crippled now tb box) to have access to most things on one device.

Anyone know if the tab casting is better on the 2? It's really choppy on the chromecast 1 when casting video through browser tab, but would upgrade if it's better on the 2.
Better quality wi fi connection I think. I've found it better than the original. Magnetic aswell this time so good for sticking to the back off the TV to hide away.
the Chromecast 2 has a magnet buit-in?, can't say I ever noticed it ..... lol.
Yea I have it stuck to the TV when not in use. It's on the actual hdmi head thing. Your meant to fold it over when not in use and its strong enough to stick itself and the chomecast body to the back of your TV

Got one. Funny how do you don't know whether you want something until it goes up in price and you realise you regret not getting it.
I thought it would probably go back down again and sure enough...
Sorry if this was answered previously but do we know when the play store is likely to come to the N22?
Exact same here

Back down to £99.99 now.
Now £124.99
It's a bit slow in my opinion. Shame as it's a nice device but it's a bit lacking in the power department.

I do like it though. I just wish it was easier to install ubuntu alongside ChromeOS as it would be nice to have the extra functionality on a device like this.

It's weird to have everything revolve around the browser. I don't have a problem with that generally but when it comes to video it can cause problems. On a traditional OS if I had a problem with a streaming video on a browser one of the easiest solutions is to just use a different browser, problem solved. Obviously this is difficult on an OS like this and it's already started playing up.

Genuine Skype, huh?, where'd you think Skype started off from in the first place if NOT on the Symbian (Linux), then Android (Linux) Platforms to begin with?, longgggggggggg before Microsoft then bought it out, etc? (think about it?).
As for that linked Chromebook you mentioned above, WOW!, for what it is, that's expensive!, a Gaming Laptop could be blatantly had for similar figures to that?.

A quick opinion that may help anyone. I've had a chromebook for a fair while and it's a great device for e-mails, facebook etc etc. I've always had a windows pc for any specific tasks.

Android support is a game changer. Honestly, I think android-based laptops/netbooks/whatever could catch on.

Gmail The offline gmail android app lets me compose e-mails offline to send later and works well.
Evernote One of my favourite apps, the android version just looks better, the font seems a bit bigger.
Games Telltale games titles don't work on my go-to nexus 7 so I've been waiting until I've got a device capable of running them before playing. Thankfully and somewhat unexpectedly my flip is running the games fine in a window. Can also play it full screen but my 'touches' seem to be off a bit.

Let me know if you'd like me to try a specific app, but they all seem to work fine so far.

The screen is fine for me. I don't doubt a higher resolution would be better and that a bigger screen would be better but you don't notice when using the device. As has been posted it would be hard to use in tablet mode without a bezel.

Chromebooks are useless!
I own a flip - android apps + full Linux is far from useless. I love the form factor, I use this more than any Windows 10 tablet or MacBook Air I have ever owned.
Have you managed to get crouton working on one of these? I've held off so far, because I've read that people have been struggling to make it work. It would be very close to the perfect device for me if linux does work on it.

Anyone had issues with delivery on this? Bought Tuesday with prime next day. Despatched on time. Should have received yesterday but still saying its with the courier (amazon). Amazon have said I've got to wait a few days before they'll send another out. Does that mean the courier has lost it?

Had the same issue, came the next day after complaining to amazon. Got a ten pound refund and 1 month of prime.

I try to keep away from NVIDIA stuff because of the issues they had a few years back.

Search Google for NVIDIA problems.



Cheers.






What problems you talking about? That is not going to bring up anything specific

The problem is that if you boycott everyone that has had problems in the past you'll be doing your computing with an abacus.

That would work better than my last computer with the NVIDIA chip!

​This thing is great. good keyboard, track pad OK, but it's nippy and it's got decent storage for a Chromebook. zips along nicely.
I've got a bluetooth mouse attached as I'm not a big trackpad fan.
I'm super impressed with it all so far.

Me too, works a treat with the bluetooth mouse!

Sometimes it's really frustrating not having office but that coming in a decent form with android apps. Please don't install windows on it! I've got a HP Stream 11 with Windows 10 and it is so slow! Always updating in background, issues with big updates and slow as end up saving everything to SD card because Windows and office take up 90% of the 32GB alone. In short Windows makes a good chromebook a rubbish laptop

How's the performance on web browsing? Do you feel any lag as some reviews mentioned it is a bit slow?

Working well. Currently 11 tabs open and no lag. Citrix and Teamviewer sessions running at the same time as well.
Streamed some HD videos from YouTube earlier without issues.

Considering it comes with a 2 year warranty and they go for a similar price on eBay with a 3 month warranty, it's still pretty good.

Anyone have one of those tablets? How is the performance? Really decent price for a 10" tab


​Very poor performance and very few apps on Windows. Wish it was Android. I bought for £79 on eBay and returned due to poor performance. Has 32 bit windows with only 2gb ram which cannot be upgraded.
I think the Toshiba Click Mini is nicer - higher res display, and battery in the keyboard dock, and currently only £90
I have one of these and I love it. Quick, lovely display and runs Kodi brilliantly. That said, I purely use mine as a tablet but the keyboard is decent.

Ok had a proper look.. App Store access won't be coming anytime soon it's the C738T model that's getting it soon. The one with 4GB ram.
I just thought I should let people know that this has now got Google Play Store access via the dev channel update. Works very well too. A serious game changer for chromebooks (Yes I do have one).
Has anyone bought one? I was wondering if this would still qualify for the free 100GB storage for two years?


Edited By: GAVINSM on Jun 27, 2016 19:41
had mine delivered today. very nice for the money. looked as new out of the box. mainly for my 5 yr old to do education websites on and as a spare for travelling etc.

the touchscreen is a really good addition, very responsive... though the mouse pad gestures work very well for web browsing.

won't replace my windows laptop, but very impressed so far. thanks op.
sounds like good advice, thank you
The benefit is that the app experience can be better than the browser experience, such as Microsoft Office. Also me a s people can play certain game son them and other benefits. Also just brings a bit of future proofing. If you haven't had a chromebook before just buy a cheap one and see how you get on. I had the Acer C720 which was a great device!

Rubbish CS. Months for a case a screen protector to go to market. Getting the most of out it now then will get another brand. Shame, the pre launch PR was really good.
I have this phone, bought it at launch, it's practically perfect for what I need, dual sim, no bloatware, not laggy, BUT the LEDs in the soft touch buttons failed (still functional tho), the camera is just AWFUL... (don't get excited about 20mp, my galaxy s4 camera is FAR far superior) and Wiley NEVER made a phone case for it (idiots!)

be interested to know if anyone knows of a chromebook for sale with a touchscreen larger than 11.6"? all the ones I've seen are not available from our shores :(
Advice now is to wait. With Google opening up the Play Store to Chrome OS, there is going to be a shift in thinking how Chrome OS devices should be made, with potentially more emphasis on being more like the Android tablets or phones currently out there, such as the addition of touchscreens, gyroscopes and modems.


​ Cheers, having just sold my laptop I think best plan is get one of those £99 refurb Chromebooks to tie me over with till later in the year.

Where's a good place to find a 720?

They stopped making the 720 in 2015, so I doubt that there will be any new ones left for sale.

Have a look on eBay for refurbished or used one. For example: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Acer-Chromebook-C720-29552G01aii-11-6-16GB-Intel-Celeron-1-4GHz-2GB-boxed-/282056024223

The 710 is pretty grim as it's basically a Windows machine that they cannibalised in their first attempt to make a Chromebook.
Much better to stump another £20 and see if you can track down a 720 which (despite the similar model number) is a different external and internal design from the ground up. Makes the world of difference in terms of performance over this as the 720 has the Haswell CPU architecture, dual core CPU, SSD, m.2 SATA, USB3.0 etc. The 720 also runs alot cooler than the 710, has a better screen, better keyboard, better ergonomics, much longer battery life etc.

Thank you. Got it for £95 in the end and it works like a dream. Perfect for light stuff and it looks good too.
Just arrived, took 3 days although was sent 24 hour delivery, not the 48 as stated. Possibly because it took them a while to process the order. While it's no Mac in terms of screen, build or keyboard quality, and I won't be designing any websites or graphics on this. It's perfectly fine for web surfing as suspected. The speakers are OK, have them cranked up full vol. Video rendering is OK again. The screen contrast could use some work, appears very dark for netflix, but as I normally watch while doing something else, I'm not too bothered. I'm guessing I can get add on speakers if I really need them. The best part was setting up Cloud Print in a few clicks. There is a slight lag between clicking print and printing but nothing major. Overall, perfect for light use and the equivalent Windows machine would be a HP stream book at £30 more (new, didn't price refurb). Agree with the comment that if you want one with a good viewing experience get a FHD, but then that will negate the cost saving quite considerably.

Not too sure about the definition of UK andGB in this thread. (_;)
People, do your research. A gimped laptop is a gimped laptop for life, you won't have saved anything rather regretted the day you spent on said hardware. Just plan carefully.
I'm going to go out on a limb here: you don't own a Chromebook do you?
Correct.
Reviewing products you don't own must be a fulfilling hobby. Got to have a good imagination though.
You don't need to own and/or have a good imagination in deciding a particular product isn't up to scratch. Plenty review sites exist, its just a case of trawling half a dozen or so and comparing with similar products in said price range. Not rocket science.
