I know some don't need a powerful device, but 2GB RAM makes this cold for me. If you look on CeX, there are lots of CB's cheaper, that have 4GB RAM.

Alternatively, Laptops direct sometimes have a refurb on the Acer 15 for £249 which blows this away in every respect.

If that's true, that's a different ball park altogether. Has anyone actually bought one and can confirm the specs?

Sorry, to clarify, my ideal would be a 4gb 32gb fhd touch model. The one posted is not.
I got a 2gb refurb one from Argos cheap last month, seems to to run ok but if you are paying £180, yes, get one with 4Gb.

Any chance of a mini review? How much did you pay? How much do you think is a fair price for this?

This was the deal. Certainly no complaints, but at close to £200 I would expect 4Gb. Well worth looking on Gumtree, plenty for less than £80.
This is the same as the one for sale here, the 2gb version, it's £80. Just have to keep an eye out for a 4gb one.

That's what I thought winchman. Thanks for the info. So if you walked into Lidl today, would £100 be a fair price to pay for this brand new?

How would you rate the screen quality winchman? I've seen plenty of these lower end CB's and it's the screen which always puts me off. Always bad colour/contrast and viewing angles etc.

I haven't used it a whole lot, got it as a secondary one, but I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary one way or the other. I'm not sure any that you will get at this price point will be much different.

Thanks winchman. I went for the Acer 15 as when I looked in PC World a year ago, I didn't like how poor the screens were on CB's in general. Recently bought a HP CB 14 in the USA and dreading seeing the screen in person in a few weeks time.

It was 199 In store and in there flyer
posters in my lidl say £199 but scans as £179 as well - posters have printing errors
For basic use 2GB is absolutely fine on a Chromebook. However you can pick up this same Chromebook with 4GB RAM and full HD screen for less refurbished. The higher resolution screen would swing it that way for me.

Note also that there is less than 2 years official support left for this model.
