Not had any experience with a Chromebook? Is the main difference that it’s …Not had any experience with a Chromebook? Is the main difference that it’s not Windows O/S and is Android instead.Can you install Microsoft Office for an example?


It's not Android either. It runs ChromeOS, which is (like Android) a Linux based system, but with a different (web app/desktop oriented) focus. Initially it was designed to only allow the user to use web apps and (I think) it is fair to say wasn't really suitable to be the only computer someone owned, though still great as a secondary device.

Over time the ability to run Android apps was added (to more modern devices at least) which was a great leap forward in usefulness. They still run ChromeOS, but have Android 'baked in' so the apps can run and they come with the Google Play store installed so the apps are easy to install.

Even more recently, the ability to install Linux applications has started to appear, which allows the installation of full proper applications, such as office applications. In the Linux world the de-facto standard office suite is LibreOffice, and it is a good suite, and if you are not exchanging documents with others it's perfectly fine. The thing is that anything that I would have traditionally used LibreOffice for, I would now just use Google Docs.

So no, you can't just install the full Microsoft Office, as that is not available (yet) as a Linux application. If Microsoft Office is important then you have to use either the Web app, or the Android app (I thought this was particularly rubbish - when I used them last the web app seemed much more featureful), or attempt to install the full Microsoft Windows version through WINE (a system that allows you to run Microsoft Windows software in Linux), either directly through the Linux application layer (I don't know if this is possible yet), or through an Android app that includes WINE built-in and can run MS Windows software.

play.google.com/sto…ice

This is the app, but last time I tried, I was unsuccessful in getting MS Office installed with it, though it may (for all I know) be flawless now. It will, no doubt, get better. And in time I have little doubt that getting MS Windows applications running on Chromebooks will get easier and more feasible for typical users, but we are not there yet.

It's worth mentioning that the methods that use WINE in order to run a MS Windows version of the software will require a Chromebook with an x86 processor (AMD or Intel). The processor type is not relevant for the web app and Android app versions.

It's worth noting that this model is only supported with updates until June 2022, but even so, not bad for the price

Just checked and I’m sure you get full Play Store so full access to Android apps with this.
Same as cheap tablets, don't buy one of these with a miniscule 16gb storage (yes you can add an SD card but) you will wish you spent an extra £2-30 to get the 32gb one and even that is just about adequate.

It's eBay I guess but it still amazes me these things are still being sold in November 2019 as though they're a good deal at that price.

And £184.99 really is havin' a laff.

If it was a (genuinely old) 2GB non-touchscreen model I'd agree with you, but this has 4GB of RAM and an IPS touchscreen. The only real weakness it has is that 16GB of storage which, while perfectly fine in the pre-Android/Linux app era, is a little on the light side.

Okay fair enough. It's crazy to think though that this device has the same amount of onboard storage as the Samsung Galaxy Note 1 (GT-N7000) which was released in 2011!

Do android apps run well on these? I echo the issue of 16GB being a real weakness if the storage behaves in the same way as an android device.
I need a laptop for my son for Xmas, mainly to help him with school stuff as his handwriting is a difficult area for him.... however since iPads and smart phone advancement I have no idea regards what I’m now looking for in laptops spec wise .... regards memory I need ... speed of processor etc. They seem to range from £140 - £500!!??... this won’t be for gaming... so what kinda spec do I need to be looking for and what should I expect to pay??

YT is your friend for these. Agreed that 16GB is bad but then you won’t be loading this up with loads of apps like a mobile, unless you don’t own one. Plus you got some offloading to an SD card.
Thinking about it ideally a touch screen would be advantageous
I'm similar to markgriff3 in that I need something for my youngest to help with schoolwork accessing maths apps etc, can anyone recommend anything else?
Useful bit of kit for the price, but contrary to what it says in the blurb and one of the posts, it's not going to be good for school. My two secondary school age kids both use laptops a lot for schoolwork, and they both use Word and Excel a lot, so use Windows laptops rather than the Chromebook was also have. School-use laptops tend to get knocked about and I've found the best option is to buy refurbs from a dependable company like Gigarefurb and replace them every couple of years or so

Depends what you use it for. I have a laptop with 16GB of storage. All I store is text documents and spreadsheets for work, and you can get a lot of those in a small computer memory. I know this type of machine won't appeal to many people, and I suspect that such low memory laptops are made in order to convince other people to pay more for ones which cost quite a bit more but cost pennies more to make.

That used to be true. With the recent advancement towards supporting locally installed applications, I don't feel it holds true any more.

I still have an Acer C720 that I got with 32GB of storage. That never got any support for locally installed apps added, and is thus still a pure Chromebook. Having the 32GB in that always felt like overkill. There was no way I was ever going to fill it, and I never did. 16GB storage was more than enough in a Chromebook like that, for me at least.

I also have a 16GB Acer R11, which does support Android applications and Linux Applications. I have no trouble filling that with Android apps, and would love to keep some simple Linux Steam games on as well, but just don't have the storage. It's pretty painful (if you want to keep a selection of stuff installed).

Has anyone mentioned Maximum Resolution:1366 x 768 ?
Microsoft Office will run on this as Android apps or Office 365 apps. ROM is a bit stingy though. It's a computer so shouldn't have a tiny amount of ROM. 16gb will fill up very fast.
