You're missing the purpose of this... it's suppose to be used on 'the cloud'
Can another os be installed on this?
Anyone know the difference between "used - very good" and "used - like new"?

Is just a different box? Missing parts? Cosmetic damage? Is the "like new" worth a tenner more?

It doesn't have F-keys on it, so might not be fun to run windows on it.
Just so people are really clear on what they are getting here:

You need to be connected to the internet to use it and all the software and apps are hosted on the internet, not on the laptop itself.

Essentially, if you live in an area with out\crap internet or don't have a dongle (I said dongle) don't buy it.
Truth is, they are really limited and you might as well just use your smartphone.

A far more realistic price for this, without doubt.
Just seen this GUIDE that shows you how to run ChromeOS off a USB stick, so you can test for yourself, and see if you can live with it before buying.
Looks decent heat added good deal mate
Given that the price is comparable to a refurb netbook, why would anyone want one? I'm quite prepared to be educated here!

Chrome? Yuck!
It's USED!

It's USED!



AKA rejected....
This'd be good for the elderly or people who have no use for an OS other than browsing the web.

With HTML5 there's a lot of things you can do via a browser that you couldn't do a few years ago (word processing, spreadsheets, etc).
It's great as a light browser/emailer, especially if you don't like typing long emails on a tablet...

A 3G enabled device for £140 is hot...
Fair price for what this is! I would love to know how many they sell at £400, you would have to be a sandwich short of a picnic or a massive Google fanboy.

you may do but you need to flash a different bios first ! bit of hard and risky work.

Is it 3g?
There is a fairly large & active hacking community for these as google encourages it.
I don't see the point in this at all. You can get a proper decent netbook for this price with hdmi etc.

If this is where the technology is taking us I am not interested.

What is the point of the Chromebook? An OS/Laptop you can't really use unless you are online? And especially when you can get a netbook or tablet for close to the same price? #baffled
Cold from me, it's used and has lack of storage, cheap but not ideal for everyone

If you can't confirm this for yourself, I fear this device will be too complicated for you...
Surely this would be ideal for kids who only use their netbooks for facebook and other social network sites?

Link please? I'm after a netbook for around this price but the ones I'm finding are way more expensive...

This is a taste of whats to come. I would say these are more for folk who already have a laptop or PC and want the option of extreme portability whilst on the move, which is what this offers, as in a low boot time and everything working online and not from a slow infected hard drive.

With tablets and chromebooks what you have to remember is that these are not intended to replace PC's or laptops. Yes for sure if you did not already have a laptop or PC then to buy one of these may be insane.

Tablets have given us a taste of what life is like without Windows and its nice. Dont get me wrong Im not saying Windows machines are all bad as Im typing on one now but for portability and speed no, which is why there is a windows tablet in the pipe line.

Screen resolution is a good step up from standard netbooks.

Have ordered one, even though I really don't need one.

Primed it also.(_;)

battery life for the weight is good

also, you won';t get a netbook for 140£ with 3G
I'm currently a Uni Student, and there is WiFi everywhere. My PC is pretty powerful. Is there a program that this can use to take control of my PC remotely?
I'd be looking to use Photoshop, 3DS Max and such.
Thanks for any help.

Your missing the point. I never understand people who complain about something a product does not have, which it is not meant to have in the first place. Sorry if that sounds confusing but the idea of this that the storage is based online ie in the cloud so how can you complain that the HD is small when its not meant to have one oO.

Its like buying a ham sandwich and complaining that it didn't come with chicken.
well i took a chance....bought the like new one...fingers crossed

Not sure I totally agree with that. You still need the option to work offline, which Chromebooks do not offer you. No-one is asking for total Windows/Snow Leopard/Linux functionality. But Tablets and Netbooks are light, quick starts (especially tablets) and you can use them in offline/airplane mode. You can't do with these.
