    Points to note: It's an 8th generation processor (2017), no you can't upgrade it and no you cannot install Windows on it. Also has a AUE of June 2025, for those unfamiliar with Chromebooks it means Automatic Update Expiry date beyond which it won't receive updates from Google. That doesn't mean it will be unusable just that it might become more vulnerable to security exploits and future compatibility issues within the Google ecosystem.

    Why can't you install Windows on it?

    Will USB C 3.2 Gen 1 support 2 x external 4k monitors?

    From NBC review: 'Lenovo representative confirmed that neither USB Type-C port supports DisplayPort; as such, the only way to connect an external monitor would be via a USB adapter, which is not optimal. It is also questionable as to whether or not Chrome OS could support an external display in addition to the internal 4K panel.'

    Who needs this much power in a Chromebook?

    People that want to take advantage of the Linux functionalities.

    That's a really good spec for a Chromebook, if you want a Chromebook, that will fly with that spec, small storage a drawback but not the end of the world.

    It's the os end date in three years that kills it for me

    Replying to

    Actually it's a 2019 release. You won't need to replace this for at least the 3 years of it's support life. And could well use it beyond the support date unless it becomes faulty. This does support Linux. The Asus is a Windows laptop so it's a bit of a false comparison. People generally buy Chromebooks as an alternative to Windows laptops because they prefer the Chromebook architecture and it suits their needs. (edited)

    The age isn't too much of an issue; it's the sluggish EMMC storage that kills this. Even phones have moved onto UFS, and standard laptops feature NVME, but this seems a very odd combo - everything else spec-wise lends itself to competent performance, and then they bottleneck the whole lot by soldering an asthmatic EMMC turd into it in place of a regular SSD.

    There's cost-cutting, and then there's evil ba****dry like this.

    Tbh trying out Chrome flex on an old i7 laptop and even with it running off a USB stick it's flying along. Don't think this will suffer much

    I'm struggling to see why this is £333. Is it being sold as new?

    The CPU is 7th generation, Kabylake; to put things in perspective, 13th generation is due later this year but current is 12th gen. That particular Kabylake CPU came out in March, 2017, ending production in 2020.

    To be clear, please don't get me wrong, I'm not saying an old Kabylake CPU is 'bad', I can't think why many people would need more than 4 cores/8threads in a Chromebook but there have been 5 years of incremental improvements to power/graphics, my point is, it's pretty old, so why that price? Memory is cheap, um, pretty decent screen, decent chassis, looks okay.

    A bigger wince being the eMMC storage but, again, probably not a big deal on a Chromebook, I'm just struggling to understand the price, is it a refurbished unit? Are they at least giving you a brand new battery replacement?

    Is there a new definition of new ?

    It’s a good spec as a Chromebook if you can access this pricing but CPU is dated now so it’s a bit of a strange one. Spec will hold up well but has shorter AUE.

    1.8Ghz processor is quite poor to be honest

    Those in the know.
    Currently got HP 360. Support rubs out in 2025.

    I really like the battery life. But I've got into coding and the keyboard and screen are poor. Screen is very reflective and not bright enough. Keys don't travel enough and not comfortable for long typing sessions.

    Since new devices should come with 8/9 years updates now. What should I buy next. I'm thinking waiting for new Pixel Book or HP dragonfly?

    Recently got my mum an oled chrome book and screen is fantastic. But it's technically a tablet with bolt on keyboard so no good for me. (edited)

    Maybe this is best there is for now, for your use case in 14" form (shame about 16:9), worth following price:
    (Check Android Police review & comments too)

    Ryzen 5000 CBs will become available this year, as usual Intel upgrades, probably better waiting for both. No Pixelbook expected in 2022, only a tablet possibly midrange

    Dragonfly not quite MBA equivalent, that honour might go to fanless Asus 5400, not mentioned above because only 300 nits
