I wonder if topcashback will work with the coupon.

Yeah - no guarentees as usual, I think I'd still try. A year ago I purchased from the HP store using a voucher code and my cashback at Quidco still tracked and paid.

According to reviews the battery life on this is 3 1/2 hours, which is pretty dismal for a chromebook. Think i'm going to hold out for the samsung or acer's to drop in price me thinks

After what I have read this morning I wouldn't be surprised if these google machines allow governments directly in.

Original Poster

Don't think there would be any need for them to access the machine itself, they already have your data stored, regardless of if you use a Chromebook or Windows machine etc. Anyway, let's hope not...

I was just about to buy an acer c7, this is an interesting product now i am confused.

What's the confusion, what are the pros and cons between the two as you see it?

On a different note, any owners out there who have Ubuntu running on one of these? lifehacker.com/how…343

I'd stick with Chrome OS unless you really need a fully fledged OS running on this. The point of a Chromebook is to be ultra fast at booting and simple to use. Ubuntu would reverse that.

Original Poster

I don't think that's necessarily the case. Crouton let's you switch to Ubuntu whilst in Chrome rather than dual booting, but looks like you can also achieve that. I'm just reading from the link I posted above. Agree it won't be for everyone.

pretty much the only option for people wanting a large chromebook. nice looking device.

The deal is not for this HP which they currently have online for £249 here.

Looks like they have that offer on some Samsung Chromebooks (e.g. this one) as it's a Samsung phone in the promotion. That deal, which is available at other stores too has been posted here.

I used tcb when I got an HP printer from an offer on here. I used voucher codes as well.

I ended up paying around 50 quid for a 125 quid printer, tcb worked too. This was at the HP site.

This Chromebook has an atrocious trackpad (among other things).

engadget.com/201…ew/

Then there's HP's trackpad. Oh, the trackpad -- it's something right out … Then there's HP's trackpad. Oh, the trackpad -- it's something right out of a landfill full of dead Compaq laptops. Welcome back to 2003. The Pavilion 14 is the first Chromebook to ditch the one-piece clickable trackpad that's commonplace today. What you get instead are two overly stiff buttons below a roughly patterned surface -- it looks and feels terrible. Then there's the unused button / indent (and matching LED) in the top-left corner of the trackpad, which is designed to toggle the trackpad on / off in Windows, but does absolutely nothing here. At least two-finger scrolling works -- it's just not nearly as smooth as on other Chromebooks. None of the other gestures illustrated in the tutorial that ships pre-installed with every Chromebook are supported. We're not sure how that slipped through the cracks (see screenshot above), but we're guessing that first-time buyers are going to be quite confused.



"The company simply made too many compromises when it decided to build … "The company simply made too many compromises when it decided to build its first Chromebook from a recycled PC chassis. While it's reasonably thin and light for a 14-inch laptop, the non-standard keyboard layout and antiquated trackpad are deal breakers. Add a lackluster display and mediocre battery life to the mix and you have a recipe for disaster. The Pavilion 14's only redeeming qualities are its zippy performance, decent speakers and solid build quality. Is it worth $329? Absolutely not."

Yeah, for this price it won't be amazing, but I'm just not sure how bad it really is. One commenter on that same article seemed to disagree with some of the comments. I tried to take a look at one in person today, but no Chromebooks in my local Curries.

I don't understand some of these points. They say the trackpad is … I don't understand some of these points. They say the trackpad is horrible to use, but it really isn't? I have had this for just over a week now and for £249, I would consider it a bit of a bargain. Because it has an actual intel processor, it is also faster than those with the mobile CPU's.Is the screen that poor? Nope, not a bit of it and the battery will easily last 9-10 hours between charges.This review is not one that you should listen to. My only problem is that I don't really like the feel of the keyboard, but as for everything else? Well, it's a £249 Chromebook that does it's job incredibly well!Poor show guys on the bad review.

Sounds like Ubuntu (using ChrUbuntu) can run on this based on what I've read on this review at The Register...

For a hoot I loaded up a Linux distro - Ubuntu 12.04 using ChrUbuntu - … For a hoot I loaded up a Linux distro - Ubuntu 12.04 using ChrUbuntu - and everything worked fine, just as it did with the Acer C7. Performance wasn’t too shabby either. Of course doing this isn't as straightforward as it would be with a Windows notebook and you are left stuck in developer mode, so on balance I still think a cheap Windows notebook from eBay is a better way to get a Linux machine.

It's pretty much a web browser and some 'apps' that are really just a different way of presenting a web page. Rather than running an operating system such as Windows, this runs Google's own ChromeOS. Do you already use a lot of Google products like Gmail, Google Maps, Google Docs etc? If so, and you want a cheap way of browsing the net with a 14" screen and a physical keyboard and will have an internet connection 99% of the time (e.g. wireless network at home), then this could be good for you. Here's a intro to Google's ChromeOS - youtube.com/wat…3qw

You can use Google Docs with it if you're familiar with that? I think you'd want to be online whilst doing so but believe there is some offline capability.

Old 'Chrome10' voucher expired, now please use 'ENVYMVC10' for the same 10% off.
Edited by: "morgie" 1st Sep 2013

Is the 100GB free cloud storage for 2 years still coming up with this deal?

The old code has expired. Is there a new code for this? or do you know of any similar deals?

Banned

Not sure of any other HP codes at the moment. Closest thing - it's £199 at Curries at the moment, add the code 'chrome5' for 5% off.

4% code at HP now seems the best available - COU4
