I owned a Acer R11 chromebook with a N3060 and I always think to myself if only the CPU was 30-50% more powerful it would be perfect. You need to understand the chromeboook market. Most chromebook come with 2GB RAM and if you want the 4GB variant you would normally have to pay £50-80 more for the upgrade. So what I said before ''isn't a bad deal considering you get 4GB RAM instead of 2GB and a CPU more powerful than the usual Intel Celeron N3060'' I'm sticking by.
Got an X220 for home use and when I really need something a bit better (not that it's new) - but I'd like a light, semi-capable, powerpack free beater for carrying around daily - would this suit the bill? What's the battery life likely to be?

And could I put linux on it...?

QC3 is for normal usb and this item only does 2.4A max on any port, Usb C is not the same as QC and this is limited to 2.4A

I want a slightly better brand, waiting for the 60w anker to come down in price - even that the usb C is limited to 29w at about 5A

Lack of full HD is not a deal breaker on a screen this size, the screen looks perfectly good to me. You can find them cheaper with 2GB ram but i swapped my 2GB for a 4GB model (same as the one you highlight) and it runs much smoother as i prefer to work with multiple chrome tabs/apps open. This has a touch screen which the majority of Play Store apps are written for. Still have my desktop that i use for serious work but my laptop mostly gathers dust as the chromebook is much more convenient for surfing and playing media especially when away from home. The battery life is awesome.


The R11 is highly rated and well liked 4Gb version is worth going for definitely. Would post it on HDUK again when they are £200.

I'm trying to do some research to see if I can genuinely stop buying these turd £250 15" Windows 10 laptops I keep buying for my staff, that only last a year, and replace them with Chromebooks.

The big one is Office, they need to be able to use it properly (ie not Google Sheets etc). I ran Chromium on an old laptop the other day, but ran in to issues. Word Online, where the URL is office.live.com is a good app, but to open files from Dropbox requires a 'commercial Office 365 subscription', and also there's no Google Drive integration (I'm trying to switch from Dropbox to Google Drive in the near future). Also, Word Online when the URL is onedrive.live.com, only wants to save on your OneDrive, which I 100% am not going to sign up for.

I just want to be able to open Word docs from Google Drive, and save them back to Google Drive. So my next step is to buy a Chromebook that can run Android apps, as hopefully that will offer a 'Save As' option, instead of bullying me to use OneDrive.

Will I be able to do that with a Chromebook that runs Android apps?
We've a chromebook... 3rd one actually. Chromebook owners love the platform. Especially with the apps integration.

Almost like saying that spending £500 on a windows laptop gets you a better specced, better built laptop than if you'd spent £200 on a windows machine...

Personally, I find that the CB encourages me NOT to fill it up with crap I don't need, unlike my windows laptop, or my window desktop. I have a media player (MX Player), Lords Mobile, a couple of file synch apps (onedrive, and google drive), and Netflix.
The ability to wipe everything, and be back to an 'as new' condition in under 5 minutes if required, is just icing on an extremely tasty cake.

Yes, I am perfectly aware of that and I understand why Chromebooks are valuable (speed, easy to use etc) but there is the odd time when you need to do something that a Chromebook can't do and if I spend £500 I want to be able to do them. For £200 I can live with the compromises.
For me a Chromebook is a secondary machine still. Would never spend top money for a machine that's limited. That's my point.

1) Takes five minutes with minimal computer skill to install play store. CLICK HERE
2) Reviews I have read, all state that the implementation of adverts is not intrusive and is very easy to live with. If you find that not to be the case, you can pay later to get rid of them.
3) The fire hd software is android with amazon's skin on top to optomise the use of their products and make it easy to buy their stuff. Being a prime member on a fire tablet allows you to access free ebooks, magazines and music etc.

Beginning to sound like an amazon fanboy which I'm not particularly. It's simply that the Fire HD offers such good value at this moment in time. Plenty of other good options out there if you are willing to loosen you wallet.

The new amazon 10.1" fire hd is on offer at £109 and is stunning value. Prime membership useful but not at all essential. Full HD good quality screen, microsd expansion. Sideload the google play store and you are good to go. Can always pickup an inexpensive bluetooth portable keyboard if necessary.


Thank you I think that's the information I was looking for, how hard is side loading the play store? can I share all the apps I have on amazon & play on my phone already? I definitely have prime already, how does it help?



Looked it up again, I remember now I was always put off by paying the extra £10 to remove adds

My partner is still interested in the C213, so am also interested in any views/comparison people may have.


Do you like the R13 Acer 10% off first purchase. The screen is beautiful, no backlit though.

I was thinking about getting a Asus C213..
Would this be much better?

Bought one of these last night from a Curry's store and I'm VERY impressed/happy, play games great. My advice is if you are not too sure pop into Curry's and check them out - it swayed my decision, wish I had just done this straight away before ordering 2 online.


Thanks. It helps. I will try going to Curreys and see them first.

That sucks. I would have purchased this if it wasn't for the annoying US layout on the physical keyboard which I've struggled with before. At this price though it's a steal for anyone who doesn't mind the physical keyboard being US layout.
