Negative. No touchscreen. Android apps need touchscreen
You could put Linux on it and your sorted.
For this price and form factor, I'd rather go for a Windows machine.

​Would it not be sluggish with a machine with Windows on it for this price as I know Chrome does not need much processing power to run so will run very nicely on slower processors with less memory.

Negative. No touchscreen. Android apps need touchscreen



As a Chromebook user I've never had any inclination to attempt to use Android apps.

So heat added.

You're probably thinking of the older Atom based 2GB machines.

Positive from me, I think touchscreens on laptops are awful.
I use on of these at work. Too small and slow for any real productivity.

No such thing as a slow 4gb RAM Chromebook

Are you sure you are using this exact model?
Are you sure you are using a Chromebook?
Forget about android apps about as much chance as a OTA phone update from Lenovo (Moto).
Had Chromebook for years and compared to the squirming bag of worms windows has become it's great. For instance Factory reset and up again 3.5 minutes and with 2FA super secure.
You do need a mobile or pad to connect to older wireless printers though. USB printer forget it.

Just no.

Just yes. It blows this Chromebook out of the water in every way.

But without touchscreen ,you cannot use Android apps properly. Chromebooks, by themselves are just web browser and nothing more. Chrome OS is useless for me without play store and touchscreen as all the communication apps can only be installed via the play store and are Android based ,so need touchscreen.

Wrong.

They are developed for the third world as a cheaper option . In UK they are forced upon poor students and employees because they can be locked down and cost less. But other than that there not even single benefit of using them . I bought one sometime ago but had to return it as none of the popular communication or productivity apps worked on it . Now there is an option to use Android apps , but Android apps are built for tablets and phones , so need touchscreen.

Who cares about crappy Android apps designed for phones when you can run Linux? Which is what that link is by the way, if you'd bothered to check.

With Linux, you can run Wine, so you can then run Windows apps.

Wine is merely the methadone for Windows addicts. Necessary, but nirvana is when it is no longer needed. Hope to see you there.

A Samsung Chromebook crouton owner, Linux Server SysAdmin, and ISP owner. Get this deal. No one with a serious interest in the internet should be without one.

Telegram doesn't sound like a very secure app:

If you count the US as third world.
CBs are very popular in the US education sector.

You're right. But I have been using it for awhile ... It's difficult to move away as my contacts are using it as well.
