HP Chromebook 11 £169 reduces to £149 with code @ tesco direct

Hi first deal posted so take it easy!

Brand new HP chromebook 11 in tesco direct for £169 discounts to £149 with code TDX-WPJC at checkout,only until 30th July.

Was just looking for a small cheap as possible new chromebook for an older relative to replace their accidentally broken one. (an original 2013 hp chromebook 11)
Good I thought for a brand new one,successor of original with a warranty,similar price to some refurb deals.

Obviously its a chromebook,no use to anyone who needs a windows or mac laptop or desktop,can concede that without any debate.

Low specs that you'd only get away with on a chromebook,this is a basic entry level model,no touchscreen and no good if you want the new android apps etc to replace a tablet as well.

But might be of interest if anyone on the lookout for just a basic cheap chromebook of the original type for some secure web surfing email facebook HDMI out etc thats brand new with warranty etc.

I personally really like Chromebooks and tend to wax lyrical,I think you have to use one to understand the appeal,especially around security and simplicity and find upkeep of the windows laptop more hassle for more than I need.
I don't really need its power or indeed mac's which look nice but a bit expensive just for a basic user. Tend to just grab the chromebook these days for my needs.
There are limitations though so they're not for everyone. Horses for courses as they say.

For our very non computer savvy older relative (who originally fancied a tablet but didn't get on too well with touchscreens) it has been a big success.
In nearly 4 years of use no dramas around updates or viruses or slow down etc.
My own original HP Chromebook 11 does everything I need very well and simply.
Although personally for myself I would probably pay a wee bit more and go for a slightly bigger and higher spec Chromebook next time with touch and maybe tablet mode etc but for my older relative this was exactly what they wanted as they had no interest in any of the extras and thought might just help someone else in similar position too.

check out Tesco and Argos ebay for chromebooks. They're usually brand spanking returns or discontinued stock and cheaper.

Yes the hp Chromebook 13 looks nice. As does the new Samsung ones and the Asus C302. As you say though not cheap but probably very nice to use.
p.s just reread original post, apologies a bit more long winded than intended
Unless this model is getting Android support in the future, I would avoid it. My Lenovo Chromebook N22 I got from Amazon for 100 quid has android support (So I can load all kinda apps from the google play store)

^^^ 4GB, Core m3, aluminium build, 64GB eMMC, high res screen, backlit keyboard etc. Don't think the storage is upgradeable though. The Chromebook that I've seen with a m2 slot for upgrading the SSD is the Acer 720 and that's an older Chromebook.

Heads up deal ,thanks
The Asus C302 is damn nice but it's silly money, needs to be around the £300-400 mark
I've had a Samsung Chromebook for a few years now and love it. I am seriously considering the upgrade to this one.

Agreed. Nice Chromebook but it is silly money. Maybe it will come down in price later this year as it's only been released fairly recently. We just seem to get ripped off in the UK as it's $470 in the US on Amazon.

I normally use a MacBook Pro, but have one of these for work and it's utterly brilliant for the price. Really well made and feels good to use, highly recommended!
I love Chromebooks & this price is superb. I'd upgrade... when I can find a 4gb 13" version with an HD IPS screen at under £200...
Edited by: "janner43" 28th Jul 2017
if this is an old entry model Chromebook, why are people saying they will 'upgrade'?

or are you talking about the other models mentioned in the comments?

Not a Chromebook, but nice spec for the money, ships from Spain so Def no customs.
Does this have micro USB charging port so you can use an external battery?

Up to 12.45 hours of battery life! most reviews say its not great and more like 5-6

Easiest way
1) Plug in a compatible printer
2) Print

Slightly harder way
1) Setup Google Cloud Print on your existing desktop with a printer plugged in
2) Print

More expensive way
1) Buy a Google Cloud Print printer
2) Print

I print from my Chromebook.

I used to have to do it via a printer with my desktop connected to it.
But recently I bought a new printer that I can print directly from my Chromebook.

Don't ask me how this works!

But I asked in a good shop and they told me what to buy.
I am sure it won't work in China though, lol.
If you have ChromeOS 59 installed, you can now do printing to devices that are not Cloud ready. Do a google for chromebook native printing for more details.

You need a network ready printer. Google it.

I have a Samsung ML2020W laser printer which supports printing from WiFi, chromebooks, iPads, iPhones and Android, and has reasonably priced compatible toners. It is fine for printing up to 10-20 pages. For more than that, the output tray is a bit small and they can end up on the floor.

It was about £60. It looks like the current model is the M2026W

You don't need a network ready printer. ChromeOS now supports many printers over USB as well.

Ahhhh the original HP 11 chrome book. One of the best machines I ever ever bought. I loved that little thing, the design was beautiful, every time i used it it brought a smile to my face, yes it was plastic but it just felt so god damn good. The keyboard and screen were lovely. Just a shame about that blasted charging port
Battery life really takes the cake on these things. I have a toshiba chromebook I paid around £100 for and its perfect for general use. Works great in lectures, even if getting used to google docs took me a few weeks.

Printing with this CB - get an HP printer (one here for £29). This will print from the HP Print for Chrome app in the Web Store and also scan using the webscan feature (enter ip address of printer into URL when it is on your wifi network). I suspect it will also work with the new "native printing" process via USB connection.

Yeah? How.

There's that HP app, but it's pretty useless for my Samsung laser...
My dad just got one to replace a Lenovo N20 that died a few days before the warranty expired (Amazon gave a full refund). This one is much better built and has an excellent keyboard. Display is ok for the money.
can u add an ssd to this?
Excuse my ignorance, but can you install & run microsoft office software on these?
