I bought one last time around and so far I like it. The screen is not the best but it is surprisingly snappy in performance. Don't expect instant page loads and such like but you only get minimal lag. As a second device or as a substitute for a tablet it is good value for money.

Great price. Alot better value than that shonky Aldi laptop posted on here recently.

HOT.

Heat added, but personally I would rather buy full HD version from Aldi for only £50 more.

I suppose, but then you get into the game of "for just a little bit more, why don't you get this"... if you're paying £150, why not get xyz for £180 that has a better processor, etc.

Personally I think it's well balanced. I'm using one right now... screen is ok, build is ok, speed is ok, storage is ok, price is very good. I don't think that there's any one component that's worth upgrading for an additional cost. If we're talking about £150-200, I'd probably be looking at different machines entirely.

A chromebook at aldi? Or a full hd Windows laptop?

I think they are already comparing apples and pears as the only thing I can see on Aldi is a windows machine from different manufacturer with an atom processor. hotukdeals.com/dea…669

I do wish Amazon had the 4gb ram version of this Lenovo but I don't think it's landing this side of the pond.

Tempted, but noticed that there are suddenly a lot of "used" ones on Amazon Warehouse. I wonder how many have been returned in the past week after the last £99 deal, and why?

Heat from me. Decent.

With Chromebooks, it's probably mostly just people not knowing what they are buying. Probably.

I bought mine as part of the Prime Day deals and absolutely love it. I sold my Macbook to get it as I realised that most of the time I was only ever browsing the web and couldn't justify the extra! I personally also work from home using it through Citrix and this runs really smoothly. Screen isn't amazing but excellent for the price and for what most use it for. When working from home I just hook it up to the external display through the HDMI and there's quite literally no difference between this and the Macbook!

I wasn't sure about getting this. Had too many gadgets already but this is an excellent device for the money.

Looking for something to play the new Football Manager when it comes out on a network game with friends, would this suffice? Thanks

Sorry, accidentally voted cold :(, but great deal nonetheless HOT

​It's preloaded with Win 10 and has a 1920x 1080 display.

You don't need a more powerful processor on Chromebooks that's the whole idea of them.

No, this runs Google's Chrome OS not Windows.

If you're not afraid to go second hand, go for a lenovo x220 or an hp 2570p - you can pick these up for around the same price or cheaper (paid 80 quid for an x220 on gumtree). Much faster machines, practically bullet proof and will comfortably run football manager

Negative. Been on this price for nearly an year. Does not run Android apps so just only a Web browser. Waiting for new touch screen Chrome book which can run Android play store . Otherwise Chrome books are useless due to lack of apps.

Fantastic value... Great for surfing. Daughter does home work using Google docs. Boots in seconds, long battery life. Disposable at this price but very useful.

The Intel Celeron N3060 was only released at the start of this year, N22 only available since March, and on Amazon from start of July. Android apps should be available in the next couple of months.

This has only been out for a couple of months, and it will be one of the first Chromebooks to run Android apps.

Also, it sure is strange how Chromebooks are outselling Macs, considering how "useless" they are without Android apps, don't you think?

I've had one of these for a month. Best £100 I've spent in a while. The battery life is excellent, I've never run it dry but have come close, recharging it a couple of times a week. The trackpad is really nice, one of the best I've used in fact. For £100 it's an absolute steal. The screen is OK, a bit angle-sensitive and it is a little slow when loading heavy sites (e.g. Google Inbox which is a tough site) but I happily sit there on the sofa when watching movies on TV, blasting around the internet and missing most of the movie.

​Much better to buy Android 2in1 which can run all apps you want like Facebook, Microsoft Office, Skype, whatsapp, viber etc., not just a few Google apps.

Had one for a week, and it is a simple cute machine. Battery life is very refreshing, coming from an overpowered and now dead 17 inch Sony.
Great if you mostly browse and don't use Skype (though it may have a web interface these days - I recall logging into outlook and seeing it lurking there recently)

Sorry to hijack the thread but I am looking to get one of these. My missus has one and it is so much better than the windows laptops my kids have. My only problem is that I use a tablet for accessing a WD MYCloud drive that has loads of films on it in mkv. I have tried with her chromebook but to no avail to get them to play. I can get them to play if I xfer them onto an sd card and VLC will handle most of them. But I want the ability to stream them which it doesn't seem to be able to do. Has anyone found a work around for this? Thanks in advance.

Please pardon my ignorance but what is the upgrade over ChromeOS that a normal user would get from Ubuntu? Can you run windows software on Ubuntu like Office?

Its not really an upgrade, you swap between chrome and Ubuntu in a window/or a few keystrokes.

Ubuntu is a free linux based operating system. Many prefer it to windows.

Im using LibreOffice (Free :D) as an alternative to Office and its supposed to be compatible with Word, Excel etc but i have an allergy to anything Microsoft so wouldn't know.

You can run some Window progs with a program called WINE, but again im not an authority on that.

I do know that VLC works very well though

Also, THIS is in the pipeline.

PROS:
*Its main strength is.
*its sturdiness Has sufficient horsepower.

CONS:
*Its biggest weakness is its audio. It's OK. Simply OK. Not a dealbreaker for me. But if you want top end audio-look elsewhere.

Target Demographic:
*This laptop is designed for general user who need to browse. It is possible to play some games on the machine, I even managed to edit some video but it main virtue is it's a light, well made, internet tool.

Design:
*With its rubberised or water proof keyoard it's both quite solid and sleek. A black lid, dull matte finish, and it is a pleasure to look at.

Weight:
*1.25 KGs so very portable.

Display:
*Its screen is much better than I'd anticipated: bright, brilliant colours, and no reflection. Watching films is impressive. The matte screen is fantastic and the HD quality had no laggyness. (I know it's not a word but it's difficult to describe when some screens have a little lag or slowness.)

Keyboard:
*The keyboard is good. I am a little heavy when using the keyboard. The wrist rest provides solid support and there is no noticeable flex in the keyboard. The keys are comfortable to use even for prolonged periods.

Touchpad:
*It is very responsive, and all gestures are intuitive and happen without any issues.

Heat:
*It didn't get hot or fry my legs.

Performance:
*It takes about 20 seconds to boot up - and browsing, watching video, listening to music all ran comfortably - making the N22 truly versatile.

Battery life:
*I got the advertised 14 hours out of the machine. That's unusual as most laptops promise a lot but rarely deliver.

Audio:
*This is the weak link of this beauty. I was underwhelmed by its performance. I used headphones and it was fine.

Wifi:
*works without any issues.

It is a question of priorities. For me, a slow CPU is ok for light use, but a low resolution display is always annoying (unless you are watching an SD video). And especially since Chrome OS scales really nicely, I would get a FHD screen.

Me too!
Films on the big tv and looking at the internet... never seem to watch a full film anymore

Is the battery removable?

I bought one last time and had it delivered to Germany, now Amazon would not deliver to Germany and I badly need another for my dad
