This is a very nice discount for a great little chromebook. BTW - "16GB Memory" should really read 16GB eMMC.

​Actually, I've just clicked your link and I see the same price, £199.99. So the same good deal from them by the looks of it :-)
decent price, but I nearly spilt my tea for a second, as the title suggested 16gb memory! OP might need adjusting the title to say its 16gb hard drive, but to be fair, its the same title as amazon is saying.

Biting my tongue, here. I won't rise to the bait! I'll just enjoy watching the temperature rise ;-)

Processor performance is poor. That Rockchip is horribly slow compared to Intel Celerons. No USB3.0 ports on this (only USB2.0) so you can forget about fast data transfers. The screen size just ruins it for me as it is unnecessarily small at 10" when the device itself is a lot bigger and there are huge bezels around the screen. Keyboard keys are a smaller size. That said, it is light and portable (less than 1kg) and the aluminium body is nice but I still wouldn't buy it over other Chromebooks.

Acer CB-R for example is a better bet, usefully bigger screen at 11.6" (but with practically the same overall laptop size), same flip screen / touch functionality, and it's cheaper too:

BTW - "16GB Memory" should really read 16GB SSD.



It's not an SSD - it's eMMC ie soldered on to the motherboard, so no SSD upgrade path available. Buying an additional nano sized flash drive like the Sandisk Fit and leaving it permanently plugged in would work fine, though you'd only get USB2.0 speeds on the Asus as unlike the Acer, it doesn't have any UBS3.0 ports.

Ah yes - good spot. It's actually 4p cheaper! And nice to have that 2 year warranty.
the screen resolution is a bit disappointing, if it was FHD I'd get it

Fair point.

I think this would be a nice (and cheaper) alternative to an iPad (this has a touch screen and the built-in option of a real keyboard) if you only want the iPad for browsing, basic docs work, etc (Note to trolls - yes, I know you need to do your homework first to decide if a chromebook is right for you).

I agree there are better chromebooks out there. Personally, I'm tempted by the Dell Chromebook 13 - just need the price to drop...

Yes, not the highest res screen, agreed. But, on such a small screen, it's not too bad.
Stay away from Rockchip processors...
I have one of these - bought when they first came out. Have to say I still really love it. My previous laptop was a 15.6" FHD 16GB ram windows monster. It was heavy and ran hot most of the time. AT first I found the flip a bit limited owing to the chrome OS. But then the android exploit came out and I run linux chroots so I can run pretty much whatever I want on it. Though if you only use your laptop to surf, watch TV, and for document production then chrome OS has everything you need. The keyboard is nice to use, unlike some small keyboards. And I love the premium-look brushed aluminium. I was tempted by a bigger, faster chromebook but this really does tick all the boxes for me and the size is absolutely perfect.
I would go for the Toshiba Chromebook CB104 deal posted earlier this week - much better screen.

Yes, that's a really good option. But bigger and plastic. The Asus is smaller and stronger so more baggable. Horses for courses..

LOL but you can at least schedule game downloads to your account if you wanted, on a proper Windows laptop. Chrome books dont have apps, they just have links to websites and call them apps. Cant even stream local content to your smart TV unless you have a Chromecast. Even Android has streaming apps to smart TVs

Most people wont know how to do that, and as its sold it doesnt have Ubuntu so it still cold
I have one of these and I love it. If you want amazing specs and apps, get an iPad. if you just want to surf the web, manage your email and create the odd document, then the Chromebook is ideal.

The screen isn't as bright and high-depth as the latest tablets, but again, for surfing, etc, you don't need it.

I also wanted to be able to connect my camera and external HDD to the Chromebook to transfer photos and this works fine, even though the HDD was formatted for Windows.

I like the flip facility as it means I can surf and play games in the evening on the sofa without having to have the Chromebook in the laptop position.
