You can get a proper laptop for this money, with a larger screen, faster processor, optical drive, and big hard disk. If you really want the Chrome "all my stuff is somewhere else" operating system, you can probably put that on it too, but you will get Windows 7 or 8 with the laptop, and it is worth more. So why are these stripped down machines so expensive?

To get Chrome OS for free, without buying a specially stripped down laptop, follow THIS LINK. You can put it on any old netbook/laptop or even a desktop machine. Try before you buy.

Or THIS LINK (latest builds, easy install on USB drive, no need to alter your prime operating system installation).

Note that the Hexxeh builds don't have proprietary codecs for things like mp3 and also don't support broadcom wifi chips in a lot of laptops.So jump in with that by all means but don't expect everything to work off the bat with those builds.

Chrome itself won't do a lot of things I want (like run Windows programs) so yes, get acclimatised.

Tried the Chrome OS and omg it's useless, it's just a browser, you're spending £250 to run a browser.

Yep, but those can be had for a lot cheaper and have the novelty of being touch enabled. Don't get me wrong I love my Google products but man Chrome OS is just pointless. If you're looking for something similar in size and cheap then here:

It's got full windows, which is lot more practical, or even better spend a bit more and get this:
