Twice as fast as well with better CPU. Just see the benchmarks


Don't really get your logic. Why don't you just buy a surface book 2?

I rather buy it's bigger cousin c302ca.
Been waiting for a deal on this. Excellent size to travel around with.
Play Store compatible, 9 hours battery.
Amazon had it on for the same price so bought from there.
Heat added.

Also over twice as expensive
Does this have a touchscreen or not? OP's post says Yes - click-through specifications say No.

Yes it does
It does have touchscreen. I bought from last week's Amazon deal.
It doubles up as a tablet, so better have a touchscreen lol.

On another note, if you flip it so it's completely in tablet mode, does the keyboard/touchpad not register taps/clicks when it's resting on your lap???
I have been looking at this for the past few days and Currys is now the best offering, still cant decide 100% on what to do.

Superhot deal just not sure if my wife will start hitting me for buying more tech

Is anyone able to confirm if this has a backlit keyboard? The specs on the currys website say it does. Thanks

If 10" is too small, the Acer R11 is on offer too with 32GB storage and gorilla glass. Highly rated and very popular. Would buy from Argos for the £10 gift voucher.

Linx runs windows, the reason you will want Chromebook is because you are fedup of windows
But the specs aren't all that in comparison...

Yes to both. It's 2017 version, has 1 USB C port on each side so can be charged from any side.

What's the display quality like? Does it run multiple tabs in chrome without lag?
No, No, No. 16GB of storage! (Yes you can add an Sd card but why? So the company can save a bit of cash)

The chromebooks with less than 64GB of storage are useless.

Don't look at hardware specs. Differentiation lies in the OS part, Chrome OS is very light.

Yes. Chrome OS is much lighter and less complicated than windows. It runs quite fast even on low end hardware unlike windows.

4GB/8GB RAM and 1080P screen would be the options to strive for. 16GB is plenty & like you said SD card is available.
To say 16GB storage is useless is a bit of an exaggeration.

The OS uses about 5GB, factor in any Caches that will be required by programs/apps, lets say 2GB. Then the size of the actual programs/apps, you'll find yourself needing the SD card pretty much straight away.

You don't need a full HD screen on a screen that small and certainly don't need 8GB of RAM.

My CB is 2GB/16GB ... I stuck an SD card in the first day because I need storage for pdfs & musics.
I think 4GB RAM would be good for me, 1080p is also my preference. My tiny phone is 1080p.

Btw, containers are coming to CB soon. So 8GB RAM is good to have.

£200 for a 10" Chromebook isn't worth it. Just so limited in what it can do.

You wouldn't use an SD card in this - they're bottom of the memory food chain and dog slow. Use a nano flash drive - significantly faster, more reliable and as cheap if not cheaper.

So clearly 16GB isn't plenty. as per your original reply. Yes your phone may be HD but you don't need HD in something that small. HD screens allow the same quality picture to be shown on a larger screen without the quality suffering.

8GB of RAM is indeed good to have, but not if you don't need it and chromebooks under say £500 certainly don't need 8GB of RAM. Any extra cash would be better spent on larger storage. (Or a decent SD card )

You're correct "isn't plenty" ... but not "useless" as someone had mentioned.
For my use case, i.e. split screen, telegram app & plus running a web server for chrome, I prefer 4GB/16GB to 2GB/64GB configuration.
Ordered. Thank you OP.

Yeah, me.

Because as i alluded to: if you want to install much on it you will need extra storage. As a minimum pay the extra £30 and get the 32GB variant.

The 16GB variants are like the really cheap netbooks: They are a false economy as parents are likely to get them for kids due to being cheap, but then they are so annoying the kids don't use them and they get left unused. In this case kids will try to smash the chromebook with apps and then complain that they system is slow and there's not enough space.

I got my R11 CB for £99 from a deal posted here. I will jump at another if I can get 4GB RAM for around the £100. I would love a 1080P as I can see the texts are not so sharp on my current screen. My eyesight isn't great but I still tell ... My old 13-inch Sony laptop[~£640] is 1080P, it's nice and crisp. But for around £100, I can't complain with slight lack of sharpness.

Waste of £200...


I don't think so. I already have two other Chromebooks (although one is an older Acer C720 that will never run Android apps), and I'm still tempted by this. If it had either a backlit keyboard or 32GB storage I'd have immediately got one for this price. In spite of this I'm still considering it.

If you were to spend this £200 on a windows laptop you would get an piece of garbage hardware. Plastic body (this is a full metal casing), TN panel (this is IPS), No touchscreen (this has).

Using Chromebooks is an absolute joy compared to a Microsoft Windows system. I don't know why you persist in spewing out your Chromebook hate in Chromebook deal threads. I really don't.

I have a Chromebook so I speak from experience. Nothing more than basically a Web browser with keyboard. Absolutely nuts to pay £200 when the equivalent Windows laptop does so much more.

The equivalent Windows laptop may "do so much more", but can also fail "so much more",
and need "so much more" maintenance too. Chromebooks are great focused devices.

That might have been the case 10 or 20 years ago, but not these days.

Win10 is very robust, not least because it's constantly updating itself (just like ChromeOS). I haven't had any Windows related crashes in years.
