Update 1
Now £499.99
Now Dropped another £20 to £499.99

For this price, use code C630

This offer is on the 1080p / 128GB / i5-8250U spec machine only. The above code whips the price down nicely to £519.99 delivered. It is indeed a touchscreen model and has a good rangw of ports (See images below) In terms of form factor and weight, it's not mega heavy at all. It states "Starting at 1.9 kg" Other places such as AO have it down for that weight on this model too. I don't think that's bad for the size really.

Free delivery included.

Good spec, but for this price would buy a windows laptop for versatility.

Is it possible to install windows on this machine?


No, the idea is that you are Window free.

Is it 128GB of eMMC or a true SSD?

Either way, running Chrome OS, this machine will absolutely screem.

eMMC.
Can you still use MS office with this?

Yes if you use the Android apps or the web versions of Office.

Although it's just easier to use the GSuite of apps quite frankly.

Made the switch to GSuite a few years ago now. Never looked back.
8GB memory on a Chromebook? Holy crap, that's decadent.

I think that's the ways it's going BBB. Chrome OS + Android apps + Linux apps = lots of RAM usage. Let's see what happens when GPU acceleration is enabled for Linux on all CB's.

With Android Play store and touchscreen , you can install most Android apps including those from Microsoft.

Chromebook is versatile as well. Android and Linux apps now work on it .
Ruined by it being a chromebook, but, if you don't care about that and want a 15.6" laptop, this is pretty unbeatable.
Most of my work is done inside the browser anyway. 30+ tabs open without a glitch
Looks good

That doesn't answer the question but it does sound like a solid "no".

No. You can't install any OSes on a ChromeBook other than the ones signed by Google.
It's hardware locked. I did a bit of look around when my very old ChromeBook went out of support as I wanted to install Linux Lite.

In theory the hardware is compatible. I would probably just get a windows laptop though if you need windows.

Chromebooks are fine for people who do most work in browser and can survive without full MS office. Not me unfortunately but i do like the look of the chrome OS.

I agree but I can't justify spending more than £200 on one for myself considering the limitations of the Chromebooks. At this price I could get an Acer Swift 3 which provides really good value and is a fully capable windows machine.

Is there really any need for a chromebook to cost this much? There are even some that go to £1000 which just seems pointless as you won't be gaming or doing anything like rendering videos on them.

If i was buying a chromebook i would buy the best i could. I just prefer to buy the fastest regardless of what i am using it for. I am not sure if there is really any need for them but other manufacturers make things faster than they have to be for what they do. Ipad pro's sell pretty well for example.

That was my experience of going from Windows 7 to Linux. Way too much command line and driver issues. On Chrome OS, it's a much better experience than even Windows 7.
not a bad deal at all
I’m not sold on these chromebooks tbh
I’m going to do a bit more research though, at the moment I don’t see the point. Isn’t it just an android tablet with a keyboard?
Pardon the ignorance btw
So it has no storage, no memory and no graphics card. What kind of laptop is that?

Totally agree with this. I have moved over to a Chromebook from a Surface Laptop 2 and have not missed a single thing. The ability to install apps from the Play Store makes it even better as there is an app for most things. All depends on individual usage, though.

One that is on it's feet in 15 seconds every single time, one that doesn't suffer viruses, one that just works, one that updates silently, and one that shuts down in 10 seconds every single time.

A year ago, that's where I was at.

Do these things for free today:-
-Start using Google Doc's and Sheets on both a PC and your phones and tablets, (if you already don't)
-Get yourself a 8GB or 16GB Flash drive.
-Install Cloudready on the Flash drive.
-Plug this into a PC, and boot from it.

This will give you a taste of Chrome OS with no risk or outlay, (It will be slow and laggy as your running a whole OS off USB.) Just remember though, it all works much better on a real CB as you also get Android app support.

I totally understand what you are thinking here SK. When I first really looked at CB's, I was in the big PC World on Tottenham Court road. They were all sat there with the tiny crappy TN screens and didn't look appealing at all. I asked myself, if I had to use one, which would it be. The best by a mile was the Acer 15 but the price (£399) was horrendous for the spec. (Pentium N4200, 4GB ram, 64GB eMMc.)

I then saw a refurb of this in the USA on newegg.com for $234 which was £206. Needless to say, I was all over it. Having used it now for 10 months, I'd gladly pay £300 for the Acer 15 over a much better specced Windows 10 machine. A cheap W10 laptop can do more for sure, but it's just not worth the hassle.

Last week I picked up a really nasty CB, (11.6" HP G5, N3060, 4GB ram, TN screen, 16GB eMMc,) for just £65. Spent 5 days testing, before selling it on for a profit. To my amazement, it was a great little machine. Didn't ask too much of it, due to the very low spec, but never felt slow.
I use a Tab s4 and all apps are available at the play store why are some missing for chromebooks like Amazon prime and sky

There are many similar models, some with 4K screen. From what I've read, the 4K version just kills battery life.

after using a chromebook for the past few months, it's definately a plus rather than a minus. If you're someone who just wants to get stuff done quickly without waiting for updates to install, or generally faff about, this is a godsend....or someone who hasn't a clue about computers and needs something really, REALLY easy to use (like my mrs lol). Granted, if you want to download torrents or do something more technical it's not for you......but don't underestimate ease of use with a chromebook. Most people say they are limited, and they are, but that's the point. 99% of my computer use these days is using chrome, and have to say I'm tempted with this deal.
