Normal price is 599.99
Waiting out for the Lenovo Chromebook Duet - although smaller screen than this!
Amazing Chromebook. I have it and use it for 6+ hours a day. I only wish it had a little more ram. Amazingly thin bezel, light, and super fast!

Yes. Get your credit card out!
The profit margin on this must be insane

Good Lord....!


Yeah it's pricey, but I'm not sure it's comparable to what you're used to. The specs aren't the story. Obviously much cheaper options if you just want those specs in a box, as with everything in life

... and you can buy even more expensive chromebooks!
This is a fanless touchscreen ultra book style machine where the aim is portability and battery life (10hrs+). If you are after a beast of a machine this isnt for you, but if this does tick your boxes its 100 quid cheaper than it was before.

I think in 2020, Chromebooks tick almost every box for most people. This is what I can do:
"Office" tasks e.g. writiting, spreadsheets, presentations, email, calendar.
Video Calls;
Build / manage websites (+ FTP);
Graphic Design;
Edit video;
Edit podcast (audio);
Edit images;
Create email newsletters;
Use Project Management tools;
Research;

In addition to browsing the web, watching video, listening to music, using social media etc.

And if I need to, I can use most Linux apps and Android Apps.

Plus Chromebooks have the advantage of being idiot proof and an ideal PC for those less techy. My Mum loves hers. Great battery life, instant on, secure, always up to date and most importantly, it responds when she interacts with it (no more clicking, clicking and clicking, and waiting...).

For me and my needs (which may be different to yours) a Chromebook allows me to do my job and keep me entertained.
I'm a big fan of Chromebooks but have always had issue with the 4GB RAM on this machine, given it's price. I'd expect 8GB at this price considering I paid $350 for my HP x360, which has 8GB and a faster i5 CPU.

Also consider the hinge design on this particular CB, which digs into your knees if using it on your lap for hours.

For video editing and graphic design you need minimum 8gb if not more plus very good cpu. Unless your doing extremely basic stuff. I'd get a proper windows laptop with i5 minimum. But I agree that it can do most things compared to past.
I appreciate all of that, but my point is that, to my eye, this is an enormously inflated priced. The core components (processor, ssd, memory) are worth peanuts. I appreciate the extras like the portability and screen but it’s a huge, huge premium for those.

But yes I appreciate that Chrome OS has developed a lot.
There is an i5 8GB version but it's usually £700.
