Is it possible to get Linux on these please ?

Its a fantastic little thing.

Great price for this Chromebook - as you say, cheapest yet.

For the machine itself, for me:

Cons:

* No SD card reader slot - you could use a USB card reader adapter, but seems a bit of an annoyance personally.
* No HDMI out - as everett_psycho mentions below, you could buy a slim port adapter. I guess Chromecast may be another option.
* Battery life seems fair, but from what I have read it does not rival the Acer C720.
* No USB 3.0 ports (has 2 x USB 2.0)

Pros:

* Micro USB charging adaptor
* Great screen
* Light weight

I think the cons I list are due to HP working closely with Google on this, hallmarks of the Nexus phone/tablet range.

Piece of cake...makeuseof.com/tag…ok/

Non destructive dual boot using 'Crouton'. Then a couple of key presses once Linux is installed allows you to switch between OS's.

Linux on them is handy but to be honest unless you REALLY need something that won't yet run on Chrome it's very easy to like Chrome OS very quickly...

I work for HP and support Windows servers in my day job so I know my way around Windows...at home I barely use anything other than my Chromebook now (I have a HP 14" Chromebook)

for HDMI I believe it uses slim port on the charging port like the nexus devices, annoying you need an adaptor but for £10 you can have HDMI out if you want it

Good price but after care is terrible with hp..

You can but hardly anything in Linux supports ARM processors.

That is completely false, loads of thing are supported in ARM, if they aren't you can compile the code yourself.

Any advice regarding this versus the asus T100? Torn.

I'm not sure why I should buy this rather than a "normal" netbook with usb, hdmi and plenty of storage for the same price?
I can see the market for these cut down machines but only if they were much cheaper than ordinary machines.
If someone could explain this I would genuinely be grateful.

The Asus T100 is excellent but difficult to compare to the Chromebook when you consider it costs almost double the price (around £320 unless you're prepared to get a US keyboard version for less).

If you're only going to do web-related stuff and some light office tasks then go for this - if there's a chance you might need to run some Windows apps (including games, the Asus T100 runs older games pretty well) then go for the Asus.

Hassle free, much easier to give one of these to the parents and not having to deal with windows updates, virus scanners, file management etc. The HP11 also has much higher build quality than similar priced netbooks and runs a lot smoother.

How about this compare to Acer C710?
i saw a used version (guess is display version) Acer for £140..

Cheers phishwak. It's for a gift, while surfing is the main intended use, I suspect that Windows may be useful, so might just plump for the T100.

it would be better if its USB 3.0. how long the battery will last if i use it for playing games and watching youtube?

I have this machine. As a light machine for using on the couch in the evening it is superb. I love it.

Main advantage to me over the iPad was being able to download a file, such as your CV and then upload it using web forms. This was just too much hassle on the iPad.

Really really would recommend at this price.

Excellent price.

Is this suitable for my little one starting high school in September? She would use it for word / excel and things like that (Or whatever equivalent is for this). She doesn't have access to internet from home though - Not to worried about browsing the net, she can do that weekends etc when she stays with me. She wants a laptop for her birthday and i think this may look a better option? Any help appreciated, and this would be the very top end of my budget!

is this ok to run office and windows 7? surely i can use an external hard drive for file storage and this would run smooth?

any advice would be appreciated

This is NOT a Windows computer, it runs its' own version of linux, and is essentially ONLY a web browser. That said, there's very little that you can't do now with google chrome, and as such, it's a great price for a machine that will boot in about 7 seconds flat from cold to getting online.

Just to clear it up, these run chrome os, they will not run windows or windows programs, The best way to imagine it or even try it for yourself before buying is on your current computer use only the chrome browser and it's add on store and nothing else saved installed locally on the computer. Instead of office you can use google docs but i'd try this to make sure you're alright with it and it's limitations first. Chrome os is lightweight and meant to be fast and built for the internet, if all you do is check e-mails and use facebook and twitter you'll be fine, if you use office once in a while to do basic things like accounts or write CV's you'll be alright. If however you want to edit photo's or use the more complicated features of packages like office i'd recommend sticking with windows or mac instead, chrome is good but it's not up to the intense tasks that computers that cost triple this are, but for internetting at £169 it would be fine

Not really suitable, Chromebooks need the interest to be functional. It can work offline but it'll be very limited. Why can't she access Internet on week days?

Easily the best looking chrome book you can buy

I bought Acer C720 yesterday and I really like it. It has USB 3.0, U can't charge it via usb, but after 3h of surfing internet and playing on FB I had still almost 70% of battery.
Funny thing Tesco (and ONLY Tesco) says it has a dual bot Chrome OS/Win 7 Starter.

Due to the pros and cons of this machine that I outlined in my earlier post here I personally went for the Acer. It offers HDMI out, an SD card slot and I believe longer battery life. For me these things were more important than a better screen, slightly less weight and the ability to charge on Micro USB.

I'm really pleased with the Acer C720. The deal for the grade A1 refurbs (sounds like they're just returns) here looks good.

It really depends on the school more than anything, I'd always recommend finding out what the school is using and try and go with that (unless it's apple as I wouldn't expect a parent to pay £1000 for a macbook). If the school is using chromebooks go with this, if they are using MS office it would probably be best to get a windows laptop, they work better away from the internet and if she learns word and excel at school you can probably get a cheap license for her machine and her home experience will be the same as the school one. If you have a google account try googles version for yourself here, it's free but you'll see the difference and the limitations of their online version and it's pretty much the same on PC or chromebook

Worth noting while this charges from micro usb on a few reviews they've mentioned the charger that comes with it is 3 amps, a regular phone charger will only trickle charge an off chromebook and apparantly only extend an on ones battery life but it will run out eventually on one of those chargers, so you can't buy it thinking you've already got several chargers kicking about already, you'll be relying on the supplied one if you need to charge on the go or get it back up to a full charge quickly

I think they may have pulled the voucher, when i looked earlier, it was advertising that voucher code next to the price - It's not showing now?

argghhh.... code has expired even though it took £30 off when going through to checkout it went again.... called HP & they said expired yesterday but took a while to take off line

4offhp gets 4% discount... but I can't find any other codes....

Yeah I can't get it to work either, shame!

If £170 is your top end then you can get a 15 inch laptop from Dell Outlet for around £168, just had a scratch and dent arrive with no marks I can see for £168 with 12 month warranty (pentium cpu, 4gb/500Gb/wi-fi/bluetooth...would probably be more useful. You will need to drop lucky as to the stock availability but you should get something over the next few days.

This has been fixed now and is back on sale with new chargers, they did stop selling it for a while but it's all sorted and they've got the green light to sell it again

I am pretty sure Chromebooks can still use google docs offline, nothing else really, but those work I think
