Is this a good deal or does anyone think this is worth purchasing. For my daughter for school work.
It’s terrible if you need it for word processing. Very very limited. Really awkward for it. Got rid of my google chrome book and went for windows 10 laptop

They’re good, but honestly.... I’d go for a different laptop if she’s using it for school work and projects etc, I’ve not had good experiences with these
Voted hot. Very good price
I've been using one of these, (also a refurb,) for about 5 months now, and it's been fantastic. If you look at the specs of other CB's for the same £, this blows them away. The screen is one of the best on a CB and makes my £709 Windows 10 laptop look silly. Android apps work well and Linux apps are getting better with each update. This thing gets on it's feet in 10 seconds, updates seamlessly and shuts down in 10 seconds with no issues or viruses.

I now use this 95% of the time and the expensive Windows 10 laptop sits gathering dust. Best £206 (bought from USA,) I spent last year. The battery life is also insane.

Personally, I don't have any issues with Google Docs. To anyone making thinking of making the switch, I'd say try Google Docs on your current Windows PC.
Was £235 two months ago so can't bring myself to buy for more
I was going to go for this but went for the Refurbished Acer Chromebook CB3-431, which is the 14 inch, Full HD IPS (Anti-Glare, non touch) screen and non backlit keyboard with a Celeron Quad Core and 4GB RAM 32GB eMMC.

I did put the deal up but it sold out immediately, as there were only couple left on Argos Ebay. Hopefully more will become available at some point, fingers crossed. It was a bargain for £144.99 and I have had if for less than a week but am really enjoying having a no fuss and quick Chromebook.

This model is obviously bigger and with a beefier Pentium Quad Core Processor, backlit keyboard, touchscreen glossy IPS Full HD screen and upward facing speakers. It would have been nice if it was cheaper and longer warranty provided by Laptopsdirect, but they're quite reliable Chromebooks and built robustly by Acer IMHO.

Touch screen makes most of difference as Android play store apps work correctly. Also this laptop has usb c not present in cb3 431. Also better cpu and integrated graphics. I used to hate chromebook before but now love them as all Android and many Linux apps started working.

Totally agree Sam. The extra £, over the 431 is worth every penny for the extras it brings. Linux apps are getting better with every OS release and now support audio out. Just looking forward to the day when the GPU is also supported.
Oos?
Depends on the school - if your kids school uses Google Apps (G Suite for Education) then this could be a good buy. Highlights being minimum virus and slowdown hassle, you can just powerwash it (in the settings) if it's being funny.

If they use Office 365 then a Windows laptop might be better.
If you do decide to go for any Chromebook you should consider the support life pcworld.com/art…tml as Google will stop pushing updates after that date. Some refurbs look like good deals but then you notice they only have a few years of updates left.
It says on the specs its not touchscreen?
