Use code - PRIZE20

Depending what you're looking for in terms of RAM and CPU power, this might be something worth looking at. I posted a touchscreen model the other day with half the ram and a slightly lower end CPU for £35 less overall.

This one has 64GB storage, but of course you can use a compact portable drive with that if you find it too small in that area. The 16GB RAM and the i7 CPU (8th gen) will give it more grunt though.

i7-8650U (this model's cpu) vs the i5-8250U alternative

This i7-8650U will pull ahead of the the i5-8250U. They're both 4 core / 8 thread chips, but the i7 has a base clock of 1.90Ghz / 4.2Ghz - 8MB Cache. While the i5 runs at a 1.60Ghz base / 3.24Ghz Max Turbro - 6MB Cache.

So if you need the extra RAM / CPU speed, this may be worth the £35 extra over the recent Lenovo model.

I know it's a chromebook but 64gb of storage for over £500?
64gb emmc for 524.99 is catastrophic. At that price point you're better off with a traditional laptop or an iPad Pro 2/3 and keyboard.

Not just 64gb, but eMMC storage

Not space for many Android apps, but you mostly run on web

No sorry I had to vote this one cold, you have very good deals most of the times, but can't justify a chromebook with 16gb of ram and 64 GB of eMMC(not even a proper ssd). I would have voted hot for a 8gb ram / 128gb ssd around £450,even not touchscreen,but as an IT technician someone should come and tell me why I should want this chromebook with 16gb of ram and basic storage instead of buying something else over £500. Even if this was with official Linux on it, it wouldn't be worth that price with such specs. Chromebooks were meant to let you save money over windows and run smoothly without worrying about viruses. Honestly, my own idea of a Chromebook is that shouldn't cost over £300, maximum £350 for the best ones. Android doesn't justify either the higher prices over the last years. As much as I don't like the windows philosophy and crap, they kind of didn't do that bad with 8.1 and 10, depending on machines and versions etc. I use Linux myself, but if I had to choose between this expensive chromebook and a decently specced similar windows machine I would go for mamma Microsoft. Or would choose one basic fairly priced less hyped chromebook below £250. Surely someone will still benefit from your deal anyway, so thank you for posting it.

16gb ram/SoC is what really counts on a CB, but agree at this price it should come with at least 128gb ssd, then it'd be unbeatable

Sure more ram would benefit chromebooks, but on a emmc?kind of robbing us with numbers with no logic behind. Yes ssd would cost more but would perform far better,at this cost they should have included one. Like showing a sport car with a old fiat 500 engine under the bonnet, that's the image I see. Anyway, nowadays you have to know exactly what you want and need from your electronics devices, ignorance is not refunded, it's on the consumer to make sure to not fall into the marketing hype and to buy with awareness.

Hey, cheers for the comment I mentioned another model and compared it to this in the OP and gave the details on the CPU and RAM differences, although not all in-depth, to be fair. As opposed to just saying "this is the best for everyone" I do usually scout around and see what options are out there and from time to time, it turns out a pretty niche spec. I do hope it helps someone though, even if it leads them to something else. Ruling one thing out, might rule something else in.

Cheers again!

Many CBs run on eMMC with low storage and they do just fine, unlike Windows under similar conditions, because optimization is better and run on web, basically they're web machines.

This model is a bit old, more modern premium CBs come with a better drive and more storage. But to say this is a bad CB is to miss the point, because it's actually a pretty good business one - with an i7 this will surely fly, multitasking will be a breeze with 16gb ram, dream of power users

Just so that you keep things in perspective, this enterprise laptop was priced recently at about $1,500 - that's more than £1,000 so I'm afraid this is getting some heat from me!

Review says it wasn't great value for a grand, well it surely must be half-price...
