Thought I read that it performed pretty well, was I misinformed ?

its the most powerful of the ARM processors which traditionally aren't as powerful as the intel processors due to the fact they are extremely power efficient. However this is processor is designed for rendering of graphics and video, (I think the video card has around 190 video cores), it will eat multiple tabs for breakfast and competes along side the latest intel haswell processors in other chromebooks. Power efficiency wise it blows the intels out of the water, perfect for a commutor who wants to watch video with an average of 10-14 hours of use you wont need to take the charger to work!, the screen is one of the crispest out there. The cpu is so efficient it doesnt need a fan, so together with the 16GB ssd it has no internal moving parts which adds to lightness and mechanical reliability of the machine. also you dont know what its like to use a completely silent , non vibrating machine until youve tried its a pleasure. Granted there are some incompatibilites with a few apps in the chrome store due to the processor but this is extremely rare. Great price, looking for some amazon voucher combos to drive it down further.

This or a C720P? Now Android apps are growing on Chromebooks I'm wondering if the touchscreen will come into its own.

Tempted but waiting for the new toshiba chromebook to come out

Heat added; I was about to purchase from Argos until I saw this for £20 cheaper, I had a £15 voucher for Amazon too so even cheaper.

I was actually trying to hold out for the Acer Chromebook 15 but details are sketchy atm, with rumours of a March release. I've felt lost since I sold my HP11 Chromebook so this will do nicely until the 15" comes out.
