Acer C720 Chromebook £68.99 @ Sainsburys Harrogate

59
Found 25th Jan 2016
Great Chromebook for under £70

l already have one otherwise I'd have snapped it up.

Possibly store specific though - I saw this behind the Electrical Customer Services desk at the back of the Harrogate store.

Also some Asus and HP laptops at £150 but no idea of spec though.

Poster says....what are the specs please. Perhaps they had hoped people on here would be helpful. How naive. (_;)
This is ace - I've got one, and upgraded the ssd to 128gb with this: amazon.co.uk/128…BG/

And you can even install windows (with a bit of work).reddit.com/r/c…ew/.

Not bad for under 150...

People are incredibly helpful here, particularly if you show even a remote willingness to help yourself.

As it's an intel based chromebook, you can slap a linux distro on to it.

Yet that was still a prime example of how ....not to be. Maybe...*gasp* they saw this deal and thus were not on Google, so thought they'd check the specs for a quicker and much more accurate result from a human being rather than a load of (often useless) blind algorithms. Outrageous suggestion to some, I realise...
great find heat added
I've had one of these for what seems like 3 years and the battery life on it is still freeking awesome! Recommend a bluetooth mouse too
BUY BUY BUY!!!!!
Gaaaahhhhhhhh I was there just last week!

This would've made a good toy/experimental machine especially as the investment isn't as big as a properly priced one.

That won't help you run iTunes.
According to Sainsburys there's only one store in the country with any stock - in Basingstoke - and after spending 20 mins on the 'phone - they actually don't have any.

Any more details on the £150 laptops would be appreciated!

Google has its own music service Play Music for £9.99 you get unlimited access to 30 million + songs and there's an even an offline mode so you can listen wherever, and can also can add up to 50,000 songs to Google Play Music from your personal music collection using Google Play Music for Chrome or Music Manager (up to 300MB per song). Sounds good enough to ditch ITunes?

​Well, with wine you can. I believe you might get adequate performance with windows 10 too.

20 seconds to post a question.
1-120 minutes to get a reply.
Or
60 seconds to type model into Google.

If it was an obscure item or a very rare model then I'd agree with you. People don't need to research in a library anymore or find the local elder for information on ancient tradition.

Apparently so...but I'm always slightly dubious when a call centre tells me something like that.
Great deal,

I recently upgrade the SSD with this:
amazon.co.uk/dp/…ssd

and installed Windows 10. Runs perfectly. Those interested simply google coolstar and reddit.

Voted hot, however so many muppets cannot google the specs, it beggars belief. can the same people actually surf the internet without a child's help? Oh well thank god it's cyber space and I do not have to deal with them in real life. Oh the irony of the simpleton :-P

​you can actually back up, stream and listen to your own music offline for free, it's only if you want music streaming like Spotify that you need to pay. tons better than iTunes IMO. and get 5 other friends together and join google music family plan for £15 pm between u

This is a forum, Einstein. We're supposed to interact with each other. Telling someone to Google the specs defeats the purpose of this forum and the ability to leave comments

Yeah, it's not like there's different configurations of this lapto... oh... there is?
Pure Goose Chase deal as no way a new one of these is being sold for £68. This has the Haswell Celeron which runs faster that the current Chromebooks Celerons costing £150+.

Great Chromebook though. Fast and well built (though 4gb would have been nice).

He would have been quicker to Google it in the first place. Why should someone else have to Google it, and the cut and paste the info for him? And no, it doesn't affect the ability to leave comments at all. Any sensible person would have Googled for it first and then asked a question or two if they were unsure about a particular aspect. In those circumstances, people are more than willing to help in my experience.

Own this myself really good for the price I just regret not buying a bigger ssd for when i installed windows 10 I found i didnt have enough space
