For the 1st time I had a TCB cashback declined for using a non TCB code,and also the £5 TCB bonus,which hurt more.Maybe go with Quidco on this one,heated
Spec looks wrong on the OP, the 1080p version is 4GB , the 768p version 2GB. I'd be cautious in case you don;t get the right one.

I would definitely recommend the full HD ips version from Amazon for an extra £30.
I'm using one now and the screen is superb plus the laptop flies along and has the official google playstore and you can also side load non Playstore apps very easily.

CB515-1HT is the one to get from Acer with £50 off making it £349. Very large 15" great quality 1080 HD screen with a really good dual stereo speakers and a much much better CPU. I picked mine up for £299 not so long ago from eBuyer before it was phased out for the newer CB515 which is similarly priced but much lower spec.

Sold my Samsung tablet for it and it's definitely my go to device for media consumption now. Fully working Play Store support and the majority of the apps work. The best thing is the battery life. Easily get 20hr+ off one charge. You can watch movies all day and still have enough charge left for the day after. The most underrated Chromebook there is.

Forgot to add...it's also touchscreen and can lay fully flat on a surface when fully open. Doesn't fold over completely like a tablet though

Yes, I have a R13. That's the one I want next, just released over here. The updated version of Chrome 15 with N4200 processor and 64Gb storage, touchscreen, backlit keyboard and aluminium casing.
The only 15.6" Chromebook on the market.

Do you still have to run the Chromebook in Developer mode to sideload Android apps though? I've got a load of Android games from Humble but I'm not going to run in Developer mode just to get them on.

As far as I know yes you do.
Mine has been in developer mode since day one and I have had no problems whatsoever.
If you just want the normal Playstore apps though you can just run it as standard without enabling developer mode.

£349 on Amazon.co.uk now too. They've price matched Acer. Still £50 more than it was when I bought it off eBuyer.

Still pricey don't you think, even with cashback, people would just buy a laptop instead. Should be around £300.

I'm familiar with running Android apps from the Play Store. I do this on my Acer R11. I guess I'm just put off because I used to run my Acer C720 in Developer mode, but every time you restarted you had to be careful to start with a particular key combo (to start in Developer mode) or you'd powerwash your system. That may just have been a peculiarity of the Acer C720 (which had a screw to remove to alter this behaviour) and perhaps I should try it again with the R11.

Yep. Always said I would never pay more than £300 for a Chromebook since they really don't need much to power them. So when I saw it on eBuyer I snapped it up quick since it ticked all my needs for media consumption i.e largest screen on a Chromebook, 1080p, dual front firing stereo speakers, extremely long battery life and it doesn't heat up much.

Sure you can get a more powerful Windows tablet but for media consumption Android has so many under the radar APK's now for streaming movies and live TV. Basically sold my Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 and replaced it. I'm having a far better experience on the Chromebook. Just a shame stuff like the Samsung Chromebook Pro/Plus never came over here to the UK. Then again if they did they'd probably be very overpriced.

It still is the most underrated Chromebook there is that often gets overlooked. It's been available for a couple of months now in the UK and far longer in the U.S where it was as cheap as $299 with a free Google Mini at one point. The only negative thing I can say about it is the bottom is black. The metallic finish isn't consistent. That's all.

It gets updated nearly every other day/week and the OS is getting better and better. Chromebooks are just amazing for media consumption. With a Windows laptop there's a lot more faffing around. Streamed the Dillian Whyte vs Lucas Browne fight on it recently in amazing quality. Will be watching the AJ vs Parker fight on it this weekend too

You would have to be a clutz to powerwash the system by accident.
After startup you press ctrl and D after it warns you about being in developer mode, if you do nothing it also starts normally by it self in a few seconds.
Powerwash requires more key presses to begin the formatting therefore normal start up is easier.

Still is with my Acer R13 Flip. Very nice Chromebook. I sideloaded the terrarium.tv apk which being non playstore will only run in developer mode. Bit of a pain but worth it. Got to be very careful when i do the occassional restart, although as virtually everything is backed up to the cloud it wouldn't be a disaster if i accidentally triggered a powerwash. Other than that no noticeable difference in day to day functionality.

Correct. My bad, didn't notice. Having had a 2GB chromebook in the past and regretted it, i'd always recommend paying the extra for a 4GB variant.

You'll love it, the battery last for ages, no heat, fanless. You can actually use it on your lap. You might need a nano flash drive because there's no micro sd slot.
