Yeah I ordered yesterday and its done the same thing. So yes £206.11 is the final price.
Expire this though, PC World are OOS. This was a good deal, shame HUKD didn't think so.

I've gone for this now, unfortunately none in store stock as I wanted to try before I bought.... but it gets delivered tomorrow to the store so I can check it out then. I'm waiting for it the Topcashback to track but overall this is a better deal than the John Lewis front.

On the "Chromebook" debate, I work in IT and have access to some very expensive IT equipment, in fact I'm using my work Macbook Pro 15" Retina with 16GB of RAM and 1TB SSD (very pricey now let alone when it was new last year). But my teenage kids have Chromebooks and whilst there are compromises to be made their ease of use, relative performance and price makes them a great option. Also being a heavy user of the Google ecosystem I am predominately using Google Chrome anyway. I can't quite throw away all access to Windows (I'm using Parallels on Mac to run Win 8.1 now) or Mac OSX but I do think that time will come over the next few years where everything is cloud based. I'm just hoping this Chromebook is not laggy, my kids have HP 14's with the Haswell Intel chip and they are very speedy indeed. When the HP 11 came out I initially ordered them and it was a beautiful thing with a fantastic screen but the performance was limiting, such a shame because it could have been brilliant.

Picked up mine yesterday from PC World...

Nice little machine, the screen as everyone has said is lovely, does make you squint though at first. The sound is surprisingly good, the keyboard nice. The only thing I would say is that the overall casing on the HP 14's is nicer - the silver plastic on this Chromebook is cheap and tacky (but we are talking £200 of course).

I was able to run the Avengers of Ultron 1080p trailer quite happy with slight buffering which I think was my network more than anything else. Chromium has moved on although I do have one or two niggles with it still (like no offline BBC iPlayer downloads). Overall in the brief time I have played with it I'm happy.
