This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

not the touchscreen but I'm not bothered about that. It is the Full HD pentium with 64Gb storage and backlit k/b which is what I want. USB-C charging which is handy.


The combination of a metallic chassis, backlit keyboard3, Corning® Gorilla® Glass touchpad, USB Type-C and a 12-hour battery life gives this Chromebook such a premium look and feel that you’ll want to take it with you

Stylish Yet Tough

Strength, durability and stylish good looks are provided through the aluminium chassis. The strong lightweight metal chassis means that it is less likely to be bent, warped or dented than other materials.

Designed To Be Seen

The narrow bezel allows a 14” screen in a smaller footprint. Thanks to the 6mm narrow bezel and wide viewing angle of the Full HD IPS screen, you can enjoy the full majesty of films, videos and TV shows. An optional touch screen makes it easy to navigate and control videos on the 1920x1080 resolution display with 2,073,600 pixels display

Tougher, Smoother Touch

Tapping, swiping, scrolling and zooming are smoother than ever. The Corning® Gorilla® touchpad provides a slicker feel than a regular plastic touchpad, and gives users the confidence that it won’t break. With the ability to withstand scratches and pits it will continue to look as slick as the day you bought it

All-day Battery Life

Up to 12 hours1 of battery life goes a long way. With just a single charge, get in a full day’s work, study or play with time to spare. The powerful long-lasting battery means you don’t have to take the power adapter with you

That's like saying you wouldn't recommend a smart car because it only had two seats! Chromebooks are designed to be limited and have little storage.

The whole point of CBs has always been to live in the cloud, it's a different concept to a traditional laptop. The problem now is they're so widespread people don't understand what they're buying it seems.

If you want instant startup, simplicity, security and good battery life they are brilliant. If you need to run windows programmes and store your 1TB of photos it goes without saying they're not the best option.

I've got an old one and have learned to love it for light use around the house / garden. Have to say wasn't keen until I got used to it. Rarely use my other win10 laptops / Desktop now as can't be bothered unless absolutely necessary. Find me a lightweight, slim laptop with FHD, 12 hours battery, SSD and backlit k/b for this sort of money (or even less than £500) and I'm in

All sounds good for the price ...but that 4gb is going to really hold you back. Browsers will eat that up. I suppose if you rarely run anything more powerful (adobe 4d creator) then you could get away .. Is it replaceable with 8gb? .
Dual core CPU is a bit weeny also ..
Whoops ChromeBook not laptop ...

Looking at getting this but with touch screen.... Not a bad price though
Good find OP, not as lightweight as expected, but this must fly on Pentium, backlit keyboard, great touchpad/screen/all-metal build at this price unheard of

Voted hot for specs and value for money,even if touchscreen up to £50 more would be ideal.
You can have the touchscreen 15" (515) touchscreen version for £249 from laptops direct from time to time. Just keep an eye out. Been using one for a year, and it's absolutely awesome.
just ordered 2 x 515 from laptops direct A+ graded and its spot on and looks brand new at £249 each

Seriously, why is there still no Chromebooks in UK that you can put in a data SIM? Does it drain the battery that badly that it warrants drastically reducing how much more useful it would be with mobile data connection?

Tethering to phone a reasonable alternative tho
Looks like it ticks most of the boxes for my needs, just got to try and find the touchscreen version now. Laptops drect has the CB515 version in stock, but it says it is not a touchscreen. Are there multiple versions of the CB515? Whats the difference in the 514 and 515?
Folks this is EXACTLY the same machine as Currys were selling for £169.99 (Lenovo) with 6 months of free Spotify. Acer IS Lenovo these days and they are looking to extract an extra £80 or so, more when you take account of the £60 value in the Spotify, if you want it? So why would you?

Please give exact Lenovo model number and link to it at 169
Gone up to 199 on there now, perhaps their Ebay site has the 20% off. No doubt increased in time for black friday 'sale'? It was on hukd for weeks...

Hey guys, I've been on the hunt for a new chromebook for a while after my old one died. I was close to buying one that looked reasonable for £250. When I checked again it was £300. Not willing to go that high I decided to keep a watch on it. It soon came down to £280, but as I expected it to drop further, I continued waiting..(especially as BF was looming) as of today it's now on offer
@ Amazon for £220.

It looks great to me. Nice big screen(full HD), Loud; upward firing speakers. My only concern is over these AMD processors
Can anyone here with first hand experience of them(or far greater tech knowledge than myself) reassure me that these processors are decent enough to deliver a smooth performance with no unbearable snail like tendencies? Bearing in mind I won't be asking it to do anything intensive. I exclusively use these for browsing and nothing more(running only 1 tab at a time)

Not trying to ruin your day or make light of your post. I genuinely looked into these as I changed from the HP one as it didn't have a good enough screen and this Curry's model is by miles the best bang for your book in this range of poor man's chromebooks. For the money you are threatening, you should be way up the ladder. As it is, there's a couple of % points the difference. They are 99% identical, by the same manufacturer etc, etc... IF they were jumping up to N5000, Silvers or even golds, then I would understand, but these cpus in these two are all but identical...

Just tried but unfortunately the voucher didn't work for the Lenovo on Ebay through the Curry's store.
Sorry mate, they were there literally for weeks. I would imagine they will be back in time for Black Friday. You know what they are like!! They got down to £162 odd for a few days with a code also, so I would guess they will be back in a few days' time. I'll keep an eye out and ping you a line if they come back on?

I'll keep an eye on it myself, but thank you for the offer, that's very kind.
Am I correct in thinking this is the same thing but with the larger 15.6 inch touchscreen? Do you think the bigger screen would worsen the performance at all? Am thinking an extra £50 would be worth it but am completely new to the world of Chromebooks so would appreciate people's knowledge

Exactly, easily worth paying extra for.
This is premium, all metal chassis, quad core, backlit keyboard, finger print recognition, even the trackpad is made of corning glass.
And Lenovo should stop using cheap TN screens, they're the worst, really ruin the brand.

looks like it. larger screen shouldn't affect the performance as it is still only shifting the same number of pixels around. It will be slightly less sharp and will have some effect on battery life.

The A6 will drive Chrome OS as beautifully as this Pentium, both solid mid-range processors. Nice price Amazon model you linked, not as premium as this, not as good battery life, still great value too

That was my thoughts as well.. there might be a better deal in bf but for the money, I think this will be hard to beat
Argh - Do I get this or wait for BF? Looking for a chromebook for my daughter for Christmas, just for homework really & spotify, wondering if I need to spend the extra £100 or not, I was looking at things like this one

New to chromebooks, not really sure what a low to medium spec should look like
