£200 off what seems to be all models apart from the keyboard package, but that said I guess you could use your saving to buy the keyboard with it.

Isn't this the one that got 'slated' as a poor performer?
It's a good price , but anyone looking to buy should read aboutchromebooks.com/new…rd/ You might be able to get a better chromebook / tablet for your specific use elsewhere.
I myself own this. Do basic design work, website design etc. and it can handle it easily. Smooth performance after all the updates they did to it.

Downside is that you can't watch Sky Sports on it or use PS4 Remote Play. Will be moving back to iPad eventually and just keeping this as my laptop.

You can't download the App from the Play Store as it is seen as an unsupported device. Same as Remote Play. If you got and try and watch Sky Sports from the browser it says its not permitted. Bit hectic from Sky but must be some drm issue.
Good price on the face of it until you factor the price of the keyboard. If you want a powerful Chromebook, buy a HP x360 from Best Buy in the USA which is frequently on sale for just $400 and comes with the faster i3.

Skys DRM has always been a nightmare. They persisted with Silverlight way after everyone else had given up on it.

Don't you get stung by customs shipping?

You will have to do your homework regarding the end cost, i.e. customs & tax. Will still be cheaper and more powerful than the slate though.

I have the Asus C302 which is silent. I'm considering the Asus C434 if I can grab a refurb for £350 mark.

I think it's to stop casting.

Cheaper online sub and beam it to the telly. So they don't want that to happen.

Yeah that's more than likely it. Sucks that it hampers the whole device. At least with iPad they can stop you using airplay but at least let you watch it on the device.

Yep, I agree that the Asus C302 is great laptop/tablet and has brilliant reviews. I'll also go the C434 route when my 302 dies.
