Better processor and more ram than most chromebooks at this price. heat added

Good ram for the money but touchscreen would be my preference.

very good value at this price and with that much Ram.
I've been using a chromebook now for 6 months, brilliant piece of kit. At this price it's a no brainer. Good find!

Passmark score of 1009 vs 1497 for the Haswell 2955u so hardly the better processor. 4GB is healthy, but most of the wise will favour the 2955u. The 2955u Chromebooks still offer the best performance, apart from the Pixel!

Being a complete noob to the whole Chromebook thing, just a couple of Q's without having to Google and read through loads of stuff if that's OK:

Can anything I've bought on the Play Store be used on these?

Any good word proceser apps that would be good enough to do full word processing on, and is there any apps that can open and save MS Word docs?

Is this good enough too use for any camera app programmes?

Basically I use my netbook for word processing, photo editing, and browsing the net, that's about it. But it's now so slow it's time for a replacement maybe. Just wondering how this would hold up.

Thanks peeps!

is this the one that turns into a tablet as well?

HOT!! tempting ..

Think this is really the N20P with touchscreen as that is what Argos have always sold at a max price of £200, not even sure the N20 is officially available in the UK.

No, it uses chrome apps, not apps for android. So those bought on play store wont work. it will play movies/music/books bought on the store however. There is a select few apps however that will work on a chromebook such as Vine.

Google docs works well and has offline storage on it. That works with word documents. You can also use Microsofts office online through the browser also.

Not sure what you mean by camera app programmes. It cant use skype if thats what you mean, and photoshop wont work since you cant install traditional programs on it.

Any other questions, just ask.

Amazon is selling the N20.

I guess we will find out tomorrow if it has a touchscreen.

As a workaround, You can run full featured photo editing software such as gimp via RollApp, There is also a Google project to port many android apps to work on the chromebooks in the future i think this is it >>> App Runtime Project Hope this helps with your decision to maybe give a Chromebook a try or not.

Hmmm - perhaps the manufacturer refurbed Acer C720 for £125 from Argos Ebay Outlet might be a better buy. Still 12 months warranty.

Only 2gb RAM, but the Haswell processor is better than this BayTrail one.

Alternatively, for the same money you could get one of the last few (4 as I write) HP Chromebook 14s again from Argos on Ebay with 12 months warranty. 4gb ram, bigger screen, better Haswell processor.

I got the touchscreen version of this (n20p) for £160 as an Easter deal on Lenovo website. Bargain for what you get.

Ahhh...did all my research around Christmas and got the N20P from Argos for £150 (listed at £180 with £30 free vouchers bunged in with it). The Argos code numbers for the product are different so perhaps it is the cheap version after all, it was 257/5320 for the N20P.

In that case it's not a very good deal although it does stand out for the 4Gb of RAM and the build quality, of the P at least, is much better than most of the low end Chromebooks, eg Acer, Asus etc

I have got the N20p from Lenovo and I paid around £170 around Christmas time. The chromebooks are great I use it mainly for word processing and browsing the internet. I imagine this one is virtually the same just excluding the touchscreen.

Hot from me!!

I also have the N20p. 4gb is a must for a chromebook in my opinion. The baytrail processor works perfectly fine for browsing the web. It is fanless so completely silent and the battery life is great. Yes you can get better chromebooks with faster processors, but this chromebook is great. No complaints at all

I love Chromebooks , I'm so tempted by this

Is the touchscreen version otherwise the same?
If so it may be worth waiting for a deal on that since it has recently been only £10 more.

Love chromebooks so much i have 3 now, is this as good as the dell chromebook?

Im just after buying one of these this evening, Its not the touch screen model but ive just tried to set it up and the touchpad/trackpad doesn't work. annoyed about it but will just have to be returned and i'll just get my money back and probably buy an acer.

deanutd - just got one yesterday and agree the touchpad is rubbish. Doesn't recognise tap to click properly so I've been clicking manually. It's very poor quality. The rest of the laptop is fine though. It's very slim and lightweight. Shame about the touchpad - still debating on taking it back. Not going to find another Chromebook with 4GB at this price.

Ordered one of these last night, thanks for posting!

I bought one of these last week. I am using it to type this comment. It is not touchscreen. I have had no issues with the trackpad. Right click is a 2 fingered tap. Scroll is a 2 fingered pull down. It runs silently and is great to have in the lounge. It comes with 100gb of additional cloud storage for free for 2 years. Overall, as a replacement for my Nexus 7 tablet I am happy with it. I use google docs etc on my windows pc so I am used to the docs apps which also run on chrome. It boots up superfast and is exactly what I expected. 4gb of ram and 100 gb free storage is a great deal in my book.

I think my touchpad was still a bit too 'new'. It's been working fine since. Absolutely love this laptop. Couldn't do without it now.

2955u is the one used in the Acer C720? Cheers

Yep, Acer C720, still the best Chromebook, other than the Pixel.
