I have this exact model I paid £180 for a grade a refurbished and have been using it for around 4 months as I wanted a touch screen, I came from a older acer chromebook 14 compared to that in terms of speed and performance and what it does its a chromebook and its similar if not slightly better but it where things differ is hardware. Firstly its thinner and feels compact compared to acer. It's doesn't have a full metal construction like the acer and only has metal on the top the bottom is plastic. I like the size and fir a 15 inch chromebook with touch its perfect size weight and thickness for me. Typing is also nice would have preferred back-light on the keyboard but for the money can't complain much. The screen viewing angle are bad and lots of colour shifting if it's not at the right angle which is annoying. Also the screen is glossy and super reflective and doesn't help with viewing content if this is something that you can't live with stay away. Other major issue is battery life you get around 6 to 8 hours depending on usage. I mostly get 6 hours on medium to heavy use so if you want long battery life that chromebooks are known for stay away. I think this could be due to larger screen. Other than these 2 which are big things in laptops I would stay away from this. For the price I paid i think it's okay for what it is but I would wouldn't be happy paying full price with these issues. If these are not a issue for you go for it but I would say check it out instore before buying so you can see the display and judge for yourself.

Thanks. Is that the C523NA-IH24T or C523NA-BR0067 (or another I've missed)?

Perhaps other reasons to hold out for the Acer option (details).

Neither its the c523na-a20057 I know the C523NA-BR0067 has a slower N3350 compared to N4200 in the C523NA-A20057 the one here in this thread and deal is C523NA-A20057

With Google Stadia, and recently Geforce Now, you'd be suprised what you can play on a Chromebook.

I'd recommend avoiding the N3350, especially on a 15" Chromebook as you might be multitasking. N3350 is much better suited to smaller devices where you don't multitask as much. From what I remember, N3350 is dual core, whereas N4200 is quad.

Anyone looking at this, should also look at the Acer Chromebook 15. The internals are pretty much identical, but the screen is one of the best IPS touchscreens, I've ever used. From the comments above, will be way better than this.

My older acer chromebook had a n3160 and performance was fine for me doing multiple tasks like trying excel spreadsheet using android app and browsing with YouTube in the back ground. For my needs the acer did the job fine as does this asus laptop. Regarding screen my acer had the batter screen in my view no pun intended. As it had better viewing angles and was matt but wasn't touch which is something I wanted as I use a lot of android apps and it's much easier with touch.

Thanks for the info regarding the N3160 ssjinzo. I've had 3 CB's now, with N3060, N3350 & N4200. I found the N4200 to be a chunk better for multitasking, probably as it's a quad core chip. I'm not saying you can't multitask on N3060 or N3350, but the chance of interruptions/smooth playback, are obviously more.
