Bought one. First chromebook, hope I didn't **** up :P

Touch screen

sold out. dammit.

Missed again...****

Apart from the price difference how does this compare to the HP 14 chromebook with Nvidia Tegra K1, 2GB RAM?

a quick look at the other laptops on their outlet shows the white version for 159.99. Bought one myself, 3 left.

I bought 2 of these a few weeks back from here for £127 each. The prices keep changing on them. Unfortunately 1 was faulty so sent both back as needed 2 the same. On the plus side their customer service was very good, no issues with free returns and prompt refund. You get 14 days to return if you don't want to keep it.

As for condition, 1 was as new (in refurb box though) the other had a small scratch next to the keyboard, other than that pristine. Both screens looked like new.

I've got one of these except bought it off Gumtree for £160 (bought for a silver surfer who couldn't get used to it so it was literally brand new). Absolutely love it!

Regarding the vs K1, I dunno, I see it as a downgrade to be honest. I know the K1 is a beast but I'm sure I read a review that said it struggles vs the Intel chip - particularly with lots of tabs open (which I admittedly don't utilise so much) and the lesser amount of ram.

Plus, I have Ubuntu installed via Crouton to a 64GB USB3 drive and not sure it'd be possible with the K1 (it may be supported somehow but I don't really look into it). Also had it installed on a 128GB SD card but found the USB3 drive better. Only really use it for Steam on occasion as I picked up the valve complete set recently cheap, but it runs Left For Dead 2, Half Life 2, Team Fortress 2 etc. on low settings quite easily.

Chromebooks are awesome as long as you know their uses and limitations and uses, then you're laughing

Really good guide (best and most complete I've found) for installing linux here;

The doc link in the description is really useful as well and covers everything in more detail, in case anyone finds it useful
