The first picture in your listing is an ASUS by the way.

I've got the 2GB version of this - if you can get the 4GB go for it. It's very rugged which means it's not paricularly attractive and the bezels are ginormous.

Can't see a problem with that, it's on Google playstore.

Pretty sure I paid £179 for this a week ago from curry’s...

Maybe, but it's still a good quality IPS screen. I need to scale down on my Acer full-hd R13 just so that I could read the text better.

So, would I notice a massive difference from my trusty C720 up to this ?

Is this basically the 11” version of the R13 that is on Currys for £299? Might suit my 8 and 11 year old better anyway. Think 13” might be too big. Just need it for browsing / Netflix / YouTube and homework

No, not exactly the same, specs wise. Perfect for them, good build and durable has Google playstore. R13 is too heavy for them to use as a tablet.

But I'd still recommend the R13 for them as a laptop for general use. I have one, quality piece of kit.

May get the eldest the R13 and the youngest the R11. No mistakjng who’s is who’s then either.

Went for it at Very with 10% off code for first order so £452.17 for the R11 in blue and an R13. Was going to pay £299 for the R13 from Currys anyway so have gained an R11 for £153.17. Cheers.

edit: the blue one says 4gb in the title but 2GB in product description. Hoping it’s 4gb or will go back.

Goodscore, I'd say you bagged yourself a R13 for £250 from RRP £399!!

Is it similar in ruggedness to a Asus c201? I am thinking about getting that or a c213

The Asus isn't very rugged. It's plasticy which looks like metal. Still think the Asus is way nicer looking whereas the Acer is quite blocky.

I'll take a side by side pic if you want to see.

Thanks, can't believe I missed that. The touchscreen has got to be better suited to a Chromebook, best cancel my order

R13 arrived today from Very and really impressed. God quality feel to it and perfectly fast enough for my daughter for homework and surfing the net etc. Had to update firmware first to allow Google Play Store.

And the R11, Is it the 4GB version? I power washed my R13 and it updated to the latest firmware with added security.
Edited by: "win26" 27th Nov

That hasn't arrived yet. Coming separately for some reason. The EAN code on Very site I googled though and on other sites it is 4GB so should be ok I reckon, if not going back.
Edited by: "wozwebs" 28th Nov

R11 has arrived and I can confirm it is 4GB RAM
