Nice chromebook, heat added.

Actually its only got 4 cores not 192.

The max at the moment is 8 cores


What it does have is 192 GPU cores (graphics not CPU)

Turqouise....nice colour!

thanks

Tegra X1 coming soon, and its a beast

looks like they're selling out - 14 left!

i purchased a windows 7 dell laptop 4gb ram 500gb hdd with Microsoft Word and Excel, with 8 hour battery life for similar price.

so this is hot because?

There are supposedly some compatibility issues with this K1s (ARM) even with Chrome apps.

cnet.com/pro…13/

I have to say though, the CPU is rarely the bottleneck with Chromebooks. It's RAM that's normally more important, especially with numerous media rich browser tabs open. It's better to go with 4gb if you can get it.

The max what at the moment is 8 cores? Because there are CPUs with *way* more than 8 cores.

I'm assuming the OP's been edited since you posted this, but either way it's technically a 5-core CPU.

apparently this machine opens up with Ubuntu and NVIDIA drivers if that's your thing.

Apparently superior graphics performance? yet a windows 8 laptop can beat it on graphics performance.

it's optimised for browsing.

it's not meant to be a laptop replacement.

it's also got a 14" screen. I assume your dell lappy has a larger 15.6 ? Amirite?

as for graphical performance - you're not going to tap into it without installing Ubuntu+NVIDIA K1 drivers.

if it's not for you, and you're not quite aware of it's potential, you don't need to slate it because you've got a Windows machine at similar price- that in itself means nothing.

It has a 14.1 inch screen. I had no intention of slating it. I just can't justify this price and considering the alternative to Chrome OS if got frustrated is Linux, which has plenty of compatibility issues with Arm chips.

So, long story short, it is a laptop, there is no such thing as browser optimised, a 14" laptop with a higher spec CPU more RAM and faster SSD(if possible) will destroy this in terms of browsing performance, yet I agree it will cost more.
So to give credit to JellyBean "it's a chromebook" means indeed nothing.

Not bad for a holiday/business type laptop. I'd still rather have a Windows laptop though. Heat added still.

what has 'plenty of compatibility' issues with Linux? this is a myth.

ARM support for Linux has been solid for a good number of years now.

it's hot for people looking for a 14.1" screen sized chromebook.

As I've said - it's like a car that doesn't drive on grass. I'm not sure that would get heat just because you spend most of the time driving on tarmac.

Good for them, might as well tell the people wanting a 14" Chromebook that the Tegra K1 is a mobile CPU. So they know what their money go for.

I do see the potential, with the tegra K1. Maybe 2016 will be a better year for Chrome OS, then again, maybe it wont.

just to be clear the K1 has a higher octane rating that some of the Intel chromebooks.

so not sure what your point is.

I don't understand the hate for chromebooks, they offer an alternative and in my opinion this is great.

Tegra K1 is better than most Celeron chips and can hold its ground against some older i3s.

Most people use their laptop for 3 things:
Browsing
Media consumption
Occasional office or productivity

The only thing where a chromebook might be worse off is productivity but if you take time to learn Google docs are quite awesome. Also as of late the online Ms office is also available.

Benefits of the chromebook are definitely portability, price/performance and battery life. As well as it won't slow down with time and have million glitches and huge updates that more often brake the functionality than they add to it.

Only sort of requirement is fast Internet connection.

I would take this over your speced windows 7 laptop any day. And would recommend it as a budget device over any budget win laptop.

Also the reason "it is a chromebook" is valid, it being a chromebook you have said quite a few things about it implicitly. Very similar to saying it is a Mac.

I am far from Google fanboy, but I consider chromebook project to be awesome. Also I own a win7 laptop because I am not a regular user and I need some of extra windows functionality. But I appreciate what chrome OS represent and what it offers.

thanks- well as evident from the heat people understand what chromebooks are for.. and this is the best price for this particular model.

a similar specc'd windows 7 dellbook i'd assume at this price would have to be a celeron. and judging by octane ratings, this would blow it out the water.

Edited by: "supermicro" 23rd Mar 2015

My chromebook is this but with an Intel processor, best laptop ive ever owned.

Great battery life, Google drive + docs is fantastic (export to word etc) and its dirt cheap. Enjoy it more than when I owned a MacBook Air and its quicker at booting up/browsing. Don't knock it till you try it

I agree with about 95% of what you're saying. I have a Chromebook and full Windows laptop. I love the Chromebook for the specific purpose that I use it for me but 2 things frustrate - it needs more storage (the 'cloud' is a joke) - and full H264 / AC3 codec support is still sort of lacking - there are work arounds but there's no video player on Chrome that handles H264 and AC3 and sub-titles all at once which undermines it slightly as a media consumption device. Not a deal breaker but mildly frustrating for me personally.

I'm the original.

The biggest advantage of this chromebook which i own :
- instant bootup
- fanless = 0% noise

Chrome OS seems to be maturing, and google guarantees a +/- 5 year updates. (good to know windows finally catching up)

Looks good, but can anybody comment on the screen quality? Has it got a crappy grainy, washed out screen that only works if you view it at a precise angle?
