Pretty good screen , 4GB Ram so should run smooth while a few apps are running . £200 it’s a no brainer , £229 a bargain .

Looks a good bit of kit I like that it supports android apps on the stable channel. Would the lack of touchscreen support be an issue?

No doubting that it helps having a touchscreen in that android apps are designed for them but the standard chrome keyboard is very comprehensive with a range of dedicated keys and a large number of useful shortcuts. e.g Pressing Cntl+Alt+? brings up a screen overlay showing the shortcuts. In my experience, using a touch screen in laptop mode isn't that useful as you have to stretch across the keyboard all the time.

I am thinking about getting a Asus c201 for £150 or the c213 for £315....Is this one a lot better?

Looking at lightweight and large screen over power, bells and whistles. This best for price? Any advice welcome!

Does it have Google Play store?

Yes


Thanks. I am deciding between this and Acer Chromebook 14 Gold, Which is 249£’s in Agos. Any suggestions which might be a better one?

Can you play gardenscapes and all those hidden object games on this?

I ordered the Asus c301 from John Lewis for 229 (not even received this yet), however when I was in Curry's yesterday taking back the Asus c300 I bought on Wednesday for £129, I saw the Acer R13 2in 1 with touch screen £299 - immediately fell in love with the screen and the aluminium body - it also has an ARM CPU which I have read is better for Android apps, due to majority being written for ARM. Bought one of these last night from a Curry's store and I'm VERY impressed/happy, play games great. My advice is if you are not too sure pop into Curry's and check them out - it swayed my decision, wish I had just done this straight away before ordering 2 online.

Thanks. It helps. I will try going to Curreys and see them first.

Expired, back up to £329 now. Looks like I was just in time! Thanks for sharing.
